Everything Is Now presents Cantaloop [+]

Free Entry Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

Cantaloop’s mission is to provide 800% of C-funk with a satisfaction guarantee! This can be delivered to an intimate crowd or to the masses. Cantaloop are fronted by the C-funk messenger Dannie Dee with his trussed C-funk doctors 100C on guitar and Paulo De’Wooton or Gus on bass. No band is absolute without the engine and Cantaloop have two F1 Groove machines to choose from The Beef or King Popeye on drums.

Under the orders of Captain Sugar Lips with his 1st mate, The Horns of Plenty launch their monster horn lines, throwing down Phat dollops of Funkelicious Brass. When all these elements combust the Cantaloop Brotherhood always let the people know they are “CHAAAC-LAT” Cantaloop are a true urban Funk outfit

Cantaloop played at various festivals and legendary venues including Glastonbury Festival (The Jazz World and Avalon stages), Montreux Jazz Festival (Montreux), Blue Balls Festival (Luzern), Moods (Zurich), The Flechedor (Paris), Paradiso (Amsterdam), Larmer Tree Festival (UK), Vicar Street (Dublin), Barrowlands (Glasgow), Ashton Court (Bristol), Jazz Café (London), Cargo (London), Carling Academy (Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol), Rock City (Nottingham)

The ‘Chocolate’ EP is the latest funk-fuelled sweetener from the awesome ‘Cantaloop’. Often described as ‘one of the best live bands out there’ this sees them ever pushing the boundaries in their genre and treating us to their unique ‘C-Funk’ song craft.

Chocolate – is just that, Sweet…. you want more and you bloody-well get it!, this track will sneaks up on ya and twat ya hard and repeatedly from all directions! Just like Ernie the chicken from Family Guy only difference is…. this feels goooooood!!!!

Feisty – kicks off the e.p with the bass bouncing and the Super-Duper-Funk horn line cutting a rug in your minds funk gland. Guitars that sound like Hammond organs but then fire up funkness that the old skool brothers would be proud of, alongside a front line social comment with a chorus hook line as big as J-lo’s butt.

Blessed – this is a tune which shows just how many different places Cantaloop can take you! The guitars start with a sweet line that sticks and pushes. Old skool hip hop vocals which ignite with the horns in the chorus, the trumpet solo is pure summer day cruising along a ocean freeway smoking cigarettes (when ciggies were good) with the top down, fired up by a back beat that just gets you were you need to go! The crescendo towards the end will give you another cigarette (was it good for you?) moment!!! Eeeemmm oh yeah.

Flatline – The curve ball of the e.p it introduces itself as a acoustic finger clicking lament to all things Cantaloop then rocks up with some fuzz fresh guitar sound that mutates into a Mississippi delta Blues Sonny boy Williamson blues harp riff that rocks back up at the end to show while the Cantaloop brotherhood have the know-how to push things forward, they can also take ya back!!

Folkazm with Mark Henderson & Co. feat. Rob Vincent [+]

Thursday 6th June – Free Entry

Folk, Roots and Blues provided by Mark Henderson & Co. on Telford’s intimate Window Stage. See some of the best acoustic acts from the Northwest up close and personal. This week we feature, Radio 2 & 6 Music playlist artist Rob Vincent…

Rob Vincent

If there’s a lot of half-finished, semi-fulfilled, vaguely unsatisfying music around these days – songs that say nothing to you about your life – then maybe it’s because the people who make it haven’t lived much of a life themselves.

Not so in the case of Robert Vincent, the searingly honest Liverpool singer-songwriter whose mix of folk, rock and country is like a Mersey Van Morrison or a Scouse Springsteen.

Born into a house that rang to the sounds of Johnny Cash, The Beatles and Pink Floyd, Robert knew before he was five years old that he wanted to be a musician. When he became a father at 17 he had to balance the hard graft of life in a working band with the responsibility of providing for a family. He’s seen setbacks and false dawns, he’s come near to success only to have it snatched away, but he’s never lost his faith in his music. And now that faith is coming good.

“I’ve done the whole thing of trying to be what people want me to be,” Rob explains in his warm and good-humoured Scouse drawl, “And in the end I just thought I’ve had enough of this. The songs I’ve written now, some of them sound like Johnny Cash and some of them like 50s rock’n’roll – but they’re what *I* wanted to write. And the funny thing is, the more honest I am the better people like it.”

The result is Rob’s debut album ‘Life In Easy Steps’: a set of songs that are alternately as open and empathic as ‘Second Chance’, and as raw and righteous as ‘Riots Cry’ – all held together by a singular lyrical vision and a voice that can soothe, comfort or tear down a wall. In a sea of plastic pop, this is real rock and roll. Read more… »

Chubby Knuckles presents… Flipron [+]

Free Entry Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

With lyrical inventiveness & surreal imagination right at the very core of their songs & with an unmistakably English sound shamelessly veering between psychedelic power-pop, dark, poetic introspection & dusty, barrel-house stompers, this is the band hailed by musicomh.com as ‘the most original band in the UK.’

As we emerge into 2013 Flipron have released their fourth album Firework Shoes with legendary Damned drummer Rat Scabies in the producer’s chair & it is set to be their best yet with many of the new songs already firm favourites with fans at gigs. It also features The Comet Returns, a unique collaboration with Specials front man, toaster & singer Neville Staple.

In 2011, as well as writing & developing material for the new album, Flipron were invited to play at SWSX in Austin, Texas where they premiered the single The Stupidest Face in Town, which was released later that spring. Steve Lamacq championed the single on BBC6music & declared it “one of my favourite songs around at the moment” Other highlights of the year included a headline show at the 100 Club as well sets at Glastonbury & other festivals. In 2010 they released the single The Coolest Names in Showbiz , played a 10 date residency at the Edinburgh Fringe & toured in the USA including New York, L.A. & Nashville.

Since they released their debut album Fancy Blues & Rustique Novelties in 2004, which was greeted by the Observer Music Monthly with a glowing 4* review from esteemed music journalist Charles Shaar Murray, they have been steadily fermenting a reputation based around their live performances and a succession of unique and critically acclaimed albums and singles. Their second album, Biscuits For Cerberus was AIM CEO Alison Wenham’s Best Record Of 2006 in Music Week. 2008’s Gravity Calling, produced by Rat Scabies, was Album of the Year in THE MICK magazine & Album of the Week in the Belfast Telegraph.

They have recorded numerous radio sessions on a variety of UK stations, including Mark Lamarr’s God’s Jukebox on BBC Radio2, (Lamarr described their session as “absolutely fantastic” & featured again in his best sessions of 2009) as well as 4 sessions on BBC 6music. Radio DJs who have played the band include on BBC Radio1 Vic Galloway, Huw Stevens & Rob Da Bank, on BBC Radio2 Jonathan Ross, Mark Lamarr & Alex Lester, on BBC 6music Tom Robinson, Phil Jupitus, Mark Riley, Gideon Coe, Steve Lamacq, Mark Lamarr again, Nemone & Shaun Keaveny. Their music has also received radio play in the United States, Japan, Australia & much of Europe. In addition their music has been used by BBC television & radio & Channel Four in numerous programmes & trails.

Flipron have opened for acts as diverse as the Alabama 3, Donovan, Hayseed Dixie & the Beat, & have played numerous times at Glastonbury Festival, -in 2008 playing a record 6 Glasto shows in the one weekend. They’ve played main stages at Beautiful Daze, Secret Garden Party, Bloom, Endorse It In Dorset, 2000 Trees, Off the Tracks, Nibley & Shambala, as well as appearances at Bestival, End Of The Road,  Lovebox Weekender, Innocent Village Fete, Larmer Tree, Trowbridge Pump Festival, Lewes Folk & Rock, Strawberry Fair & many others. They have also performed at traditional style arts festivals such as the Edinburgh Fringe, Concrete & Glass in London, The Times Cheltenham Literary Festival, Brighton Festival, Dorchester Festival, the Bath Fringe & the Llangollen Fringe. They’ve played gigs in boats, boxing rings & bars; cider barns, restaurants & cabarets; cellars, tents & strip shows: theatres, ballrooms & colleges. They’ve entertained skinheads, hippies, Tennessee housewives, New York folkies, Somerset truck drivers, painfully cool London art students, & even Holy Grail hunters in the south of France.

Mamma Freedom [+]

Free Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

Likened to a split personality, they knock you out with one hand, while picking you up with the other. It’s like watching a storm flatten a building, with anger and fury one minute, then seeing the sun break through the next. It morphs from chaotic to calm in the beat of a drum. A lethal combination of heavy, moody, hard driven, beat laden funk rock, and hip-hop and soaring, warming, uplifting soul with raunchy blues.

Mix in a heavy Sly and  & the Family Stone 70’s funk influence, Zeppelin / Black Crowes – style drive, soaring cinematic strings, and powerful harmonies weaved together by Producer Alexander Johnston using his unique production styles and wall of sound, and delivered by singer/brother J, whose gravel driven, velvet tinged, soul soaked voice scales effortlessly through the range of life’s emotions. Having gained global reputation as one of the best new bands, they are selling out venues, playing to capacity crowds and sending them home happy with a tight, explosive live show. Signed to In Touch Records and Managed by Charles Carlini of the Carlini Group both in New York whose artists include world famous Oscar winning composer Ennio Morricone, Eumir Deodato and Keith Emerson, the band has set up a base in the Big Apple and in the last 18 months the band took has taken Hollywood by storm, with company meetings and  film scores being currently discussed.

Already and influence on their peers and counting Hollywood actors and film producers as among their fans, They have just recorded and released the main theme song to an Apple iStory called The Gift and brothers Alexander and J Johnston wrote the full orchestral score for the project and have written and produced for million selling artists including 3 no.1 sellers.

Mamma Freedom will be touring the USA and UK in 2013/14

Catfish & The Bottlemen [+]

Free Entry Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

Catfish and the Bottlemen are a rock and roll band. Four lads with songs that are loud, explosive, sexy and young – and full of guitars.

Songs about regular stuff, everyday tales of love and lust. What happens when the lights go down. All delivered with a bright-eyed charm which is all their own. Relentless touring has honed an explosive live performance which belongs on a big stage.

Based around a nucleus of childhood friends who grew up and learned to play music together in Llandudno, North Wales, Catfish and the Bottlemen finalised their line-up just two years ago. Since then they have pursued a relentless schedule of touring which has taken them to virtually every corner of the UK as well as Ireland, Austria and Germany.

“We are all about bringing back the buzz of live music,” says singer, guitarist, songwriter and all-purpose ringleader Van McCann, 20.

Elder statesman of the band is 22 year old guitarist Billy Bibby, the man who first taught Van to play. They are joined by bookish bass player Benji Blakeway, 22, and rock-solid drum-meister Rob “Dr Bob” Hall, aged just 19.

Don’t try and pin these lads down: while journalists compare them to The Libertines, The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys and The Kooks, their own listening is focused on classics like Van Morrison and Elvis Presley. Guitarist Billy cites Mark Knopfler as a hero.

Over the past two years Catfish and the Bottlemen have self-released two singles and two EPs as they have built a following of manic intensity. “When you have people who travel hundreds of miles to see you, that’s an amazing commitment,” says McCann. “It makes us even more determined to put on a great show.”

Glam Rock Open Mic Session with Rusty & The Andy Bennett Band [+]

Free Entry

 

Sunday 16th June marks the end of the Chester Rocks pop festival on the racecourse. As our city bids to become the 2017 ‘City of Culture’ we are truly blessed to have a festival of this magnitude and insight on our doorstep.

Jessie J-Cloth is due off stage about ten, and we would like to invite you all to come on down and listen to some rock. With a band that PLAY guitar, bass and drums.

We’re going to have an open mic night first. Open mic at Telfords means that you play and sing, we don’t allow backing tapes, we don’t have auto tune, and if you wish to mime, that’s fine, but no noise will come out of the speakers.

First we must own up to something. We’ve booked Rusty Mahone to host the night. Rusty is an outspoken, short arsed fat man who has dared to say that ‘Chester Rocks’ actually doesn’t. (read his comments here) and hence, we deeply regret booking him, but his contract is a tough one to get out of, and we’re frankly a bit stuck.

(Rusty is an accordionist who once lent his box to Rolf Harris for the night. He was 35 at the time)

Actually, Rusty has played with bands that you might have heard of if you’re older than twelve, and does a good job assembling the diverse talent that blesses our open mic night into a coherent show.

Rusty’s ‘Meatloaf’ tribute with his accordion led power trio ‘The Bay City Cheese Rollers’ has become the stuff of legend. It just goes to show, you don’t need guitars

 

It happened here on an open mic sunday, and was only recorded as it happened, not beforehand

To end the night we have Warrington’s best kept secret- ‘The Andy Bennett Band’. They smoke fags and stuff, drink beer and snort at boybands. Their amps go up to TWELVE, and they’re not ashamed to sweat as they play.They won’t woo you with choreography and production, they will seduce you with raw guitar, animal drums and throbbing bass. They play ‘The Who’, and you understand why Townsend smashed his guitar. Their takes on Hendrix are both authentic and evocative of what could have been at the same time.

Every note you hear is played by them, created fresh just for tonight, just for you.

Before that, we have open mic with about ten slots available. Our nights are always busy, and given Rusty’s gravitational field, this one will be busier than usual, so if you do want to perform, we ask that you arrive by 8 o’clock (7.30 if you have gear to go on stage). The list will ‘close’ at 8.30. Open mic acts get three songs or 15 minutes (whichever is shorter) to get on stage, perform and clear the stage
