Dave Sharp (The Alarm) [+]

Free Admission.

Davesharp2013

1989 saw the US release coast-to-coast hit album, Change, and #1 AOR single, ‘Sold Me Down the River’, from British rock band, The Alarm. Sadly, 1991 saw the surprise departure of the band’s lead singer…

Dave Sharp, co-founder of The Alarm had that previous year enlisted the help of legendary maverick record producer Bob Johnston (Dylan, Willie Nelson & Leonard Cohen) to help cut his first solo record. It was a determined young man who walked through the doors at The Hit Factory NYC in December 1990, and in under a week Sharp’s album Hard Travlin’ had been recorded, mixed and delivered for release to IRS Records.

A relentless two-year period of Stateside touring followed including appearances at Farm Aid concerts and Earth Day celebrations before Sharp returned to New York City in 1992 to perform for an audience of 25,000 gathered in Central Park to celebrate the 80th birthday of folk legend Woody Guthrie. It was a seminal event for Dave Sharp who performed alongside Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie and Billy Bragg and shared the stage with The Right Reverend Jessie Jackson.

In 1996 Sharp once again teamed up with producer Bob Johnston entering Credence Clearwater Revival’s studio in San Francisco to record and release his second solo album, Downtown America. Two underground hits followed, ‘The Ghost of Preacher Casey’ and ‘Give Me Back My Job’, which both received healthy rotation across the board at American radio and led to television appearances on country music’s Nashville Network.

Sharp returned to the UK in 2002 to record his third solo album, The Power of Soul, released on Manchester’s Townsend Records, successfully re-introducing him to British audiences and earning him solo recognition across the UK with British music critics.

Dave Sharp’s solo albums have received positive critical recognition on both sides of the Atlantic and over the past decade and a half Sharp has been fortunate to work alongside many of the artists he has long respected. Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash have appeared on his recordings. He has performed alongside Kris Kristofferson, Bill Munroe and Porter Wagoner. Whether solo or with a band, guitar in hand, Dave Sharp delivers the ”Spirit of Rock & Roll.”

His music has been described as everything from folk and blues to rock, country and punk; his performances as everything from legendary to lousy. However one word can never be used to describe Dave Sharp: ”Predictable.”

Dave Sharp has embraced mainstream popular culture whilst at the same time remaining one step away from its grasp . . . he likes it that way!

‘It’s a Mighty Hard Road to be Travlin’ Down.’ Dave Sharp writes it, sings it and lives it.

The Tea Street Band [+]

Free before 9pm // £4 thereafter.

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

(tickets available due to high demand.)


The Tea Street Band have announced details of their new album ‘Frequency’, to be released November 9th on Modern Sky UK. The first track to be taken from the album, ‘Feel It’, is available to stream now and as an instant grat with album pre-orders. ‘Frequency’ is the cult Liverpool band’s follow-up to their 2014 self-titled debut, which gained support from tastemakers such as Huw Stephens, John Kennedy, Janice Long, Clint Boon, and Rob Da Bank, and saw The Tea Street Band travel as far as Australia and South Korea on promotional duties.
 
The Tea Street Band follow in the tradition of tunefully idiosyncratic Liverpool bands like The Coral, The Lightning Seeds, and Shack, though their blissful Electronica sounds like none of those bands. Rather, The Tea Street Band are closer to artists like Tunng and This Is The Kit, blending instrumentation with synths and beats. Like so many Liverpool artists, at the heart of The Tea Street Band is a keen ear for melody. Driven by propulsive hooks, their songs grab from the get-go, often building to a euphoric rush.
 
Recorded over a year in Liverpool’s fabled Parr Street Studios with Chris Taylor (Ian Brown, Millburn), ‘Frequency’ is a big leap forward for The Tea Street Band. “The writing process was different than the first album,” says frontman Timo Tierney. “We wrote it together, with all of us having a massive input on each song, the title and the art work (photo By John Johnson, designed by Dom Foster). It’s all of ours. We have all pushed each other musically and that can be heard on songs like ‘Sacré-Coeur’ and ‘Marseille Blues.’”
 
Like any great second album, ‘Frequency’ is the sound of a band who have found their sound whilst constantly pushing for more.

“The band make people feel good and forget about the stresses of everyday life, there’s an edge of melancholy in their “euphoric” sound.”
 
Emily Brinnand , The Guardian
 
“Think of The Charlatans meeting The Chemical Brothers and lap up the finest cuppa that clubbers can come across”
 
John Earls, Daily Star
 
“Think of 808 state having a meeting mid channel to hear some French electronic by Space Disco You need to check these out soon – Come on were British we love a cuppa”
