It's nearly always about the music, and that's the way it should be. But I'm turning 50 and want my family, friends and gig goers to celebrate with me and 3 fantastic bands!
We have the magnificent Black Doldrums headlining!
Before them we have the sublime Suns Of Rest, a bunch of incredibly talented Coventry based musicians I've known for years!
And opening the night we have the wonderful Satsangi, who I am thrilled to have back playing for us!
And I'll be playing my favourite tunes throughout the evening too!
Come and celebrate with me! X
Black Doldrums, the lauded London-based power-duo, are returning with their expansive new EP 'She Divine' on premiere shoegaze indie label; Club AC30.
Known for delivering layered echo-drenched guitar with heavy, relentless drums, Black Doldrums create transient and euphoric dark psychedelia and they've once again captured their raw, untamed energy on a record.

She Divine” pulses with thick guitar chords and a consistent drum beat. This reverb drenched approach brings a charged attack that is all about the search for divinity within the essence of humanity" - NEW NOISE MAGAZINE
"If Phil Spector was a goth this is what his wall of sound would be like, relentless, pounding beats over fuzzed and distorted guitars and topped with a vocal so ethereal it’s barely there" - SHINDIG! MAGAZINE
minimalist epic that stretches out beyond the confines of songwriting, a huge slab of noise that sits between Spacemen 3 and the Brian Jonestown Massacre. - CLASH
