The Mysterines / Teaser from Bido Lito! on Vimeo.

 

“Not many bands can say their first gig was a sell-out. The Mysterines however can. Still only in their teens, the trio led by the knockout vocal projection of lead Lia Metcalfe, set the scene aptly. Chiller-psych met with the bluesy-folk outer-tone of Metcalfe‘s past solo performances as bandmates, bassist George Favager and drummer Zak Mcdonnell, held it all together with tight, measured instrumentation. Three young musicians showing talent and professionalism well above their collective years.” Getintothis.com

Chemistry Lane [+]

Free before 9pm…£4 after.

Free all night with a Student card or Telford’s membership.



 Chemistry Lane combine sophisticated and often complex musical arrangements without ever seeming laboured. Their sound evades definition, changing and building, then U-turning mid-track without warning, keeping the listener enthralled. They straddle the fine line between the intensity and momentum of a rock band, complete with snatched moments of genuine heart felt beauty, whilst instilling punchy electro samples and loops worthy of immense dancefloor delirium.

Fat bouncy tempos and driving basslines push tracks like Pitch Black into ever more heightened states of audio euphoria. With a nod to the high priestess of soul Nina Simone with the lyric ‘Black is the colour of my true love’s heart’, it’s a tune that drives itself forward with a passionate insistence, accompanied by breathless sultry vocals that ooze industrial undertones, as guitars shred and warp in rippling soundscapes that convulse and throb above infectious grooves. At just over nine minutes long it is a prime example of the epic ambition of this band’s focus, their mastery over their art, and their expansive collective vision.

Chemistry Lane are abundant with underground potential as they produce potent concoctions of high octane guitar riffs, dreamy electro soundscapes, shuddering electro-grunge vibes and insistent drum rhythms. Fusing genres, they shift effortlessly between progressive escalating ecstatics and pounding synth-pop explosions.

Chris Tavener Music

Chris Tavener is a satirical singer-songwriter, known for his mischievously witty lyrics, well-crafted songwriting and a vintage sound.

Having performed over 230 times in 2015, Chris is one of the most hard-working musicians in the North West. His latest EP sold in the hundreds of copies and a new release for 2016 has received acclaim from Steve Lamacq of BBC 6 Music.

Originally from Northwich in Cheshire, Chris began writing and producing demo albums at age 17. Rather than write about himself, he wrote songs that featured interesting characters or ironic takes on social behaviour. Five albums later he recorded his latest studio EP that’s seen him perform from Edinburgh to London. In March to April 2016 he took on a nationwide tour visiting 10 cities over 6 weeks. He launched his new EP “i’m sorrdy bi’m drunnk” in Manchester on 19th May.
