Gig Description

Bobby West – From Liverpool. This guy has a BIG voice ….deep and loud…takes tips from maybe Johnny Cash, John Cale, Jim Morrison, Father John Misty, Ian Curtis even… musically perhaps Van Morrison circa Moondance to Tindersticks via Glen Campbell and Richard Hawley…nicely done. Previously, lead singer with cult Liverpool band, Broken Men – who supported Echo and the Bunnymen on their sellout tour.  “BOBBY WEST meticulously pieces together tracks to paint an authentic depiction of his world. A dark gritty world of which he ruthlessly laments, yet like a man in the gutter reaching for the stars, Bobby gilds the edges of his world to create something beautiful. His lens is tinted with a sun drenched glow at stark contrast to his surroundings. A sweet juxtaposition that echoes in his music as he sings of terrible things in beautiful melodies, like a council estate Sinatra his golden voice self-deprecates in alluring harmony.” Zkeletonz –  Uber pop with  a crisp radio friendly techy approach, with 1980s allusions… perhaps The Beloved meets Prefab Sprout?….they call it ‘POSTPOP : pop music with a postpunk spirit. Bedroom producers from the underground embracing the 21st century with playfulness and confidence’ In the early days Zkeletonz  raised thousands for the Save the George campaign, Support Act, a live music charity initiative which helps fund Refugee Action and Road to Freedom, and other important causes like Well Street Against Racism in Hackney, the Peckham Coal Line urban park project and The Bike Project, which provides free bicycles to asylum seekers.. Delivery Office-Atmospheric alt-rock a bit like Rob Smith fronting Cocteau Twins with a little help from Sigor Ros, rather nice. Sorta shoegaze for our times, nu-gaze maybe. Cash Cassettes  – After taking some time to gather their thoughts and count the cash, five-piece London band Cash Cassettes are bringing their signature indie sound back to the capital with a new line up and fresh tunes
