Tim and his real friends play lovely indie-flavoured melodic post-rock with gorgeous peals of acoustic guitars, a clarinet and a glockenspiel propped up on an ironing board.

Trader [+]

Think Brian Molko fronting the Smiths and you have some concept of
Trader’s sound. Their songs twist their way into your head and before

band that always play a blinder live. If they play ‘Annie’ put your
fingers in your ears or they will have you captive!

APPEARING ON Friday, July 24th, 2009

Henry’s Funeral Shoe [+]

Free Entry before 9, £4 thereafter.

Henry’s Funeral Shoe was formed by two brothers in 2008 from South Wales, inspired and influenced by many of the albums that singer/guitarist Aled Clifford had looted from his father’s vinyl collection when he was growing up. The Who, CCR, Peter Green, Robert Johnson and the Beatles were favourites, and Aled quickly became a gifted guitar player, aided and taught by Ned Edwards, a long time collaborator of Van Morrison. Aled soon played with various bands, eventually doing some recording sessions for producer Ian Grimble, and even recording at the legendary Abbey Road studios. His younger brother Brennig started playing drums at nine. At fifteen he joined a local band, learning his trade by performing covers of The Clash and Thin Lizzy before moving on to writing original material. The dexterous brothers have finally joined forces to create some of the loudest soulful rock’n'roll to come out the UK in a long time. Their debut album “Everything’s For Sale” is a fun and raucous mix of heavy rock and psychedelic blues which reminds us that the U.K can produce more than great pop music, but also some amazing rock’n'roll. Don’t lose the rhythm!

Funkdub Presents… JIMMY SCREECH [+]

Jimmy Screech @ Funkdub

FUNKDUB PRESENTS JIMMY SCREECH LIVE @ TELFORD’S WAREHOUSE, CHESTER
with resident 3DJ and Gentleman Kush

Saturday 25 July 2009They say it’s not what you know. They say it’s who you know. Is that why everyone is suddenly talking about Jimmy Screech? Championing him as the new face of British music? Has he just been dealt a lucky hand with those he rubs shoulders with?  Or is there more to it than that? Much more to it?

Sure, it’s never going to hurt getting signed to the mighty Roots Manuva‘s Banana Klan label and mentored by the daddy of UK hip-hop himself. It’s a pretty big advantage when you get invited on the famous Manuva Awfully Deep and Slime and Reason tours.  It’s pretty advantageous to your career when hip-hop legends Ghostface Killer, Dilated Peoples and Ugly Duckling book you for their tours, for that matter.  And it’s pretty sweet releasing tracks with the likes of dancehall heavyweights Ricky Ranking and Tippa Irie, not to mention überproducers The Nextmen and reggae super-group Pama International.

But who you know is only going to get you so far. You’ve got to ask yourself why these guys are so keen to work with this startlingly talented young man from East London. Perhaps it’s his effortlessly fresh combination of modern UK hip-hop and sweet reggae. Or his smart lyrics, magnetic charisma and expert delivery. Maybe they recognized from his early underground days with Ray Keith and Genuwine that Jimmy Screech had ‘breakthrough artist’ written all over him.

Whatever it is about Jimmy Screech that got the industry so excited has now reached full fruition. A new album, The Remedy, is penciled in for a Summer 2009 release, and is being accompanied by a run of relentless live shows.

On Saturday July 25th, prepare yourself for an unmissable Jimmy Screech performance at Telfords Warehouse in Chester.  The matchless promoters at Funkdub, Chester’s biggest and most eclectic music night, have secured Jimmy and the sound he describes as “a dub, hip-hop and reggae melting pot”.  Perfect summer vibes from a superstar in the making, along with the usual vinyl virtuosity from the Funkdub boys themselves mean that you’d better get down early to enjoy the show in all its glory.
