Tickets £12.00

http://www.noisetrade.com/julietturner

A compelling performer. Underestimate her at your cost.
Irish Times

Lauded from everyone from Terry Wogan to Niall Stokes.
Hotpress Magazine

Turner is – always has been, in this writers opinion –
one of the most intriguing of Irish female song writers
Tony Clayton-Lea – Irish Times

There’s a pleasing asperity and knowing toughness underpinning the stylistic and
expressive variety of Turner’s singing….confidently cosmopolitan.
Susan Wilson – Scottish Sunday Herald

Her stage presence is the type that smoulders, drawing you in and making you
sit forward in your seat rather than dazzling and knocking you back on your heels…
…it’s impossible not to have been thoroughly charmed.
Maurice O’Brien – Hotpress Magazine

Juliet Turners’ music is vibrant, personal and deeply moving…a wonderful thrilling ride of innocent pleasure and carnal delight….frankly gorgeous.
Smyth Harper – BBC Manchester website

Turner is a self-conscious artist of broad vision, whose vocal style is beguiling, then winning….. so obviously you are going to listen, as tonight’s capacity audience did.
Stuart Ferguson – Celtic Connections

The Skin Imps [+]

Saurday 5th January 2013

Free Entry Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

Collectively known as The Skin Imps, these three individuals – whom I shall introduce presently – have blazed a trail for many years, but have largely remained in the shadows, honing their skills in preparation for the coming apocalypse, ready to strike from a secret encampment on the bordertowns of society at a moments notice.

That moment is now!

Guided by the voice of God (Lee Majors), they have made it their sacred quest to reintroduce the world to their forgotten childhood, by assaulting them with powerful, mesmerising, dirty and sexual versions of Jamie and the Magic Torch, The Littlest Hobo, Thundercats and many other classic themes from 1980s television. This is their fight, their calling, their honour.

Soar Angelic Festival – White Noise Sound [+]

Plus support The Wild Eyes

Free Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

advanced tickets from www.gigantic.com / www.seetickets.com *

Soar Angelic Friday Web

White Noise Sound

Assembled in Swansea, Wales in 2006, White Noise Sound chose to isolate themselves from all around them while they conjured their own particular wall of sound – at once relentlessly pulsating and blissed-out.

Quickly the band began to incite label and media attention and their white-label demos started to receive airplay in the UK (from the likes of Steve Lamacq and Bethan Elfyn at BBC Radio 1), Europe and the US.

After honing their craft across the UK and through Europe – touring with the likes of The Warlocks, Spectrum, Mark Gardener (Ride) and the Super Furry Animals, and sharing the stage with members of Spacemen 3, Spiritualized and the Brian Jones Town Massacre – the sextet completed their debut album in March 2010 with the assistance of Pete Kember (Spacemen 3 / Spectrum / E.A.R) and magician Cian Ciaran (Super Furry Animals).

A month later, WNS signed to California based label Alive Records – whose back-catalogue, amongst many others, includes releases from The Black Keys, Beachwood Sparks, Iggy Pop and James Willamson, T-Model Ford and The Soledad Brothers.

The band’s eponymous debut was officially released 21.09.10 (US) / 17.01.11 (UK) to widespread critical acclaim and WNS toured through Europe in its support.

2011 / 2012 saw WNS collaborate with Belfast techno DJ Phil Kieran, the product of which was a Beatport chart-topping single – with remixes by the likes of Maya Jane Coles – and two exclusive live shows in Cardiff and at the MTV EMA fringe festival in Belfast.

WNS2, the band’s second album, was completed in early 2014; mixing and production duties were undertaken by Phil Kieran and Cian Ciaran with the release to follow later in the year.

 

The Wild Eyes

Hailing from North Wales, now based in Liverpool, the trio released their debut 7”, ‘I Look Good On You’, in 2012. This blazing nugget of garage rock delirium was backed with the hypnotic, krautrock inflected grooves of ‘Too Much’. Both sides received radio play on BBC Radio Wales and Merseyside, and led to acclaimed appearances at Liverpool Psych Fest, Focus Wales, Liverpool Sound City and the Liverpool International Music Festival.
An outbreak of gigs across the country saw the band earn a fierce live reputation, as they bared their awe at the still potent power of rock n’ roll, burning with an intensity born in the small towns of their youth. Sharing bills with acts as diverse as Deap Vally, Night Beats, Stealing Sheep and label-mates The Lucid Dream, the group made allies and won fans far and wide in their pursuit of aural transcendence. The Wild Eyes are drenched in reverb, mystery and sweat.

In late 2013 the band expanded into a four piece and entered the studio with local weird-pop heroes Clinic to commence work on their debut LP. An experiment in telepathy and alchemy, the result is due to be released in 2014. In preparation for its unveiling, the band are due to embark on a series of gigs across the UK, with festival appearances being scheduled for the summer.

Call it psych, call it art-rock, call it rock n’ roll, all petty fuss is eschewed by this band of obsessives, in love and enthralled with the purity and noise of pop music.

Three Dimensional Tanx

These days, the music press is littered with bands described as ‘psychedelic’, ‘drone-rock’, ‘with hints of Krautrock’ and so on. In their own high-energy way, Lancaster/Manchester-based Three Dimensional Tanx have been ploughing this particular furrow for over 10 years now. During this time, they have been ‘sound carriers’ for Can man Damo Suzuki, performed at Tate Britain with artist Linder, played at a Spacemen 3 art exhibition at the request of Will Carruthers (Spacemen 3, Spiritualised, Dead Skeletons) and smashed it at 2013’s Liverpool Psych Fest.

Their live reputation is so fierce, that they managed to get a full crowd at Liverpool Psych Fest even though their set clashed with Fuzz and Hookworms. They’ve also played with bands like White Hills, Gnod, Trembling Bells, Lucid Dream, the Cosmic Dead, Helicon and many more from the UK’s psych-scene.

The band’s recorded work was on hiatus as former guitarist David Blackwell left to concentrate full-time on the Lovely Eggs. However, with two new members, the now 5-piece Three Dimensional Tanx set to work creating a new album for a new era.

Album opener ‘I Am Go’ is just over 2 minutes worth of psych-garage-rock. ‘Caterpillar’ is a stoned-groove that starts off almost ‘baggy’ and builds up so much it ends up NEU!-ishly monolithic. ‘Loose Id Syd’ encapsulates the MC5 and Stooges energetic riffing with early Who drums splattered all over it. Elsewhere, there’s the swirling, intense ‘Here Come the Flies’, the multi-layered onslaught of ‘Backwards Telescope’ the synth/sequencer/drum-machine-based ‘Clark’s Momentum’ and four more tracks that are all different but share the unique Tanx approach.

The dynamic rhythm section propels the band with a rarely encountered ferocity. All kinds of electric guitars, their trademark 60’s Philicorda organ, a host of synths, electronics, and even electrified zithers and harp make for a vivid soundscape. The vocals are sometimes deep in the mix, at other times biting like a rabid John Lydon. If the live sound is sometimes a wall of noise, then the studio album reveals the riffs, motifs, interplay and other subtleties. But this is committed rock n roll.

Balduin with Lords Of Thyme

Balduin was born in Bern, Switzerland in December 1978.

He wrote his first song at the tender age of 8. Later, as part alchemist, multi-instrumentalist, he decided to form his one-man band called “Creative Cookery”.

It’s not easy painting words for Balduin. Creative cookery with a drop of alchemy and nostalgic mellotronic ingredients? Lysergic meltdown of cinematic and psychedelic audiophilatelies.

The Lords of Thyme are from the Southern English Midlands. With an eye towards the crystalline acid folk of Pentangle and rougher hue of John Martyn and Mr Fox, these acid folk rockers are a welcome addition to the Sunstone catalogue.

They were formed after ex-Circulus members Joe Woolley, Tali Trow and Pat Kenneally decided to make a record together. Now bolstered by the pristine voice of folk songstress and Belle of London City Michelle Griffiths, the Lords are touring the UK to promote their debut single, lovingly mixed by John Wood (Nick Drake, Fairport Convention, Nico, The Incredible String Band)

The band plan to enter the studio after their UK tour, to work on a follow up, for release in the late summer.
