Rackhouse Pilfer [+]

The rise of RACKHOUSE PILFER is unstoppable. They have been enthralling crowds throughout Ireland and Nashville and were Special Guests to Imelda May at SLIGO LIVE in October where they were a big hit with the audience, so much so that Imelda May invited them to join her for other dates.

Rackhouse Pilfer 1

RACKHOUSE PILFER formed in 2012 by the fireside of McGarrigles bar in Sligo, performing an acoustic set of bluegrass and folk hits from their favourite Americana artists. It wasn’t long before they had to be plugged in to be heard due to their growing popularity. In that short time they have supported Imelda May, Paul Brady, Mundy, Royseven, Beoga, Birds of Chicago (USA), Cabin Collective, Leo Moran of the Saw Doctors, Steve Craddock Band Band (of Ocean Colour Scene). They have shared the stage with Kila, Brian Kennedy, Jack L, Fiachna O’Braonain, Eleanor McEvoy, Republic of Loose, Sandy Kelly, Charlie McGettigan, Lumiere. As well as their nationwide tour, fans will also see them support Damien Dempsey.

March 2013 saw the release of their debut album “Back to the country”, filling the Model Arts Centre, Sligo to capacity. ‘Back to the Country’ was warmly received by critics with Americana UK magazine giving it 7/10.

Following the release of their first album RACKHOUSE PILFER took their electric and energetic stage show to some of Irelands biggest festivals and venues including the world famous Omagh Folk Park Bluegrass festival, Body and Soul, Sligo Live 2012 and 2013 where they opened for headliner Imelda May, Monaghan Blues Festival, Whelan’s, The Empire, Monroe’s, Crane Lane and many more. They set off on their first European tour in the summer of 2013, performing at festivals in Italy, Switzerland and France which included a storming performance and standing ovation at ‘La Roche Sur Foron’ – widely regarded as Europe’s biggest Bluegrass Festival.

January 2014 saw RACKHOUSE PILFER jet off to Nashville, Tennessee to record their new album of all original tracks entitled “LOVE AND HAVOC” at Alex the Great studios with producer Brad Jones. Brad has worked with a long list of Pop, Rock and Alternative Country artists including Steve Earl, John Prine, John Hiatt, Josh Rouse and Bobby Bare Jr. “LOVE AND HAVOC” features 12 tracks penned by RACKHOUSE PILFER, most of which feature the stomping uproar you might expect from this band, but there are a few twists to the plot. While in Nashville RACKHOUSE PILFER were invited to play at the legendary Station Inn, Nashville’s most famous traditional Bluegrass venue where over the years the best of the best in this genre have graced its stage. They were also asked to perform on the “Viva Nashvegas” live internet stream music show. At the Station Inn they played to a star studded audience including actress Mary Steenburgen, musical legends, cast members and the production team of the TV show ‘Nashville’. They were invited to perform on stage with an all-star band which included Jeff Hanna (lead singer with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Fred Eltringham (Drummer with Sheyl Crow), Mike Bub (Bass player, Steve Earle Band & Del McCoury Band), Legendary Guitarist Guthrie Trapp and many more. This was followed by an invitation on stage as guests at the Grand Ole Opry by Country Music Legend George Hamilton the IV.

They were invited to perform with John Carter-Cash, son of Johnny Cash as his special guests together with Raelyn Nelson, Granddaughter of Willie Nelson.

The legendary Harold Bradley features on two of the tracks from their new album ‘LOVE AND HAVOC’. Harold Bradley, now 88 years old is regarded by many as being the most recorded guitar player in history and played on many hit records with Elvis, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and Jerry Lee lewis among others. If you’ve ever listened to any of these artists then you have heard Harold Bradley play. Harold was most famous for inventing a style called ‘Tic Tac’ bass guitar and he joined Rackhouse Pilfer at their recording session in Nashville to play his legendary ‘Tic Tac’ guitar on two of the album tracks “Angela” and “Me and a Polar Bear”. Having Harold Bradley record with the band on these two songs was a real honour for Rackhouse Pilfer.

Sligo film maker Colin Gillen travelled to Nashville to document Rackhouse Pilfer as part of a film documentary about the band which will be released following the album launch.

RACKHOUSE PILFER write, record and perform all of their own songs. Some of their influences include Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earl, Ryan Adams and John Hiatt. Their line-up is Leon Mooney – acoustic guitar, harmonica and vocals, Willie Kelly – acoustic guitar, drums and vocals, Fiachra Cunningham – fiddle, dobro, and vocals, Mark McGovern – tenor/5 string banjo and vocals, Leslie Jones – Mandolin and vocals and Hugh Feely – double bass and vocals.

“LOVE AND HAVOC” will be available in stores and digitally online from 28th March 2014.

*Entry is free before 9pm & £4 after. These tickets are designed to guarantee entry after 9 should the venue be at capacity. No refund will be given to early arrivals. For more information please visit our website www.telfordswarehouse.com or call us on 01244 390 090

Please note the event begins at 21:00 with support from local DJ’s. Live music begins at 22:00.

Crackling Vinyl presents… Trecco Beis [+]

Free Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

Trecco-Beis

Welsh Fuzz-Fi pop overlords (serious).

Born of the same fermenting brew that spew The Eggmen Whoo! and Sweet Benfica, Trecco Beis stumbled into the world clueless and naked, only the spirits of Kevin Bacon and Dennis Hopper as guides. A harm to themselves and others, they climbed high into the trees and made animal noises whilst constructing rudimentary tape machines built from sap, bark and sparrows. This soon became tiresome, as all natural endeavours eventually do, so they floated towards the dirt and knitted electric tapestries that made no sense to anyone but the dead sparrows – who, at this point had begun to see the error of their tiny-hollow-bone-bird ways. (About time).

Nice………….to be comfy, nice to be nice.

By crafting a unique playing style that compliments his rich melodies and provocative lyrics perfectly, Jon has carved a sound that is always in demand. Through his music you will hear the romance of Folk and the heartbreak of Blues, combined with a unique style that’s all his own.

After spending the past few years experimenting with recording, Jon has finally endeavoured to begin releasing his material to the world at large. By utilising Indiegogo to help fund a lot of exciting content, he will certainly be onto big things soon.

Jon has been a regular on Chester’s open mic circuit over the last couple years and has developed a reputation as an impressive performer. The Flipside gig gives fans of music the opportunity to hear him play a full length set. Not be missed.

Jon was in the Flipside studio and despite having two broken fingers, blew us away. Have a listen here. https://soundcloud.com/chester-playlist/sets/jonathan-coley
