Check out the line up.
Texas Banjo Massacre
We are delighted to have this exciting new Chester group (formed January this year) performing at The Flispside.
Through their mutual disillusionment with just about everything, except music and all things five stringed and banjo shaped, Dave Steele and Pat Ranscombe set about changing the universe.(This is often referred to as a midlife crisis).
And so, in January 2016 Texas Banjo Massacre was born. The aforementioned musical troubadours teamed up with a posse of wandering souls and began choogling.
Based in the North West’s cultural Mecca aka Chester they are
Jordan Curley Vocals
Pat Ranscombe Guitars, vocals, banjos
Dave Steele Guitars, vocals, banjos
Pete Atwood Bass
Tony O’leary Keyboards
Barbara Grande Gil Drums
They play a blend of edgy, garage country folk rock, with a bit of banjo somewhere.
Already they are creating a rumble with a clutch of shows in and around Chester and a radio session to boot. Currently writing and recording material for a forthcoming project which is yet to be announced, 2016 is shaping up to be an exciting prospect for these guys.
Check out Texas Banjo Massacre’s fantastic live session which was aired on Flispside Radio recently.

Flipside Radio (formerly Lache FM) is a community radio station for Chester. We aim to celebrate the people, music and culture within our community. We promote local musicians, charities and community groups, as well as playing a wide range of music, from chart pop to roots reggae and everything in between. All of our presenters are volunteers.

The station has a monthly event at Telford’s Warehouse where we get to showcase local musicians and it’s always free entry.

I was asked to organise this month’s event on the 25th of August, so I’m taking it a bit out there.

 

First up will be Patchwork Man from Wrexham, bringing his unique blissy blend of acoustic psychedelia to proceedings.
We had him on last year and he went down a storm with his leftfield humour and engaging performance.

Our main act are Chester space rockers Civilian Zen.

Civilian Zen was formed in 2006 by Keith Hill & Mark Broster, recording two albums for the Shelter charity in 2006 & 2007, including former members of Hawkwind.

Since then they have gone on to record a number of quality releases including the magnificent Tell Lie Vision from 2014.

Civilian Zen are

Ralph Wordenweber, Mark Broster & Keith Hill.

Soundtracking the event will be the boys from popular music panel show Ear Of The Tiger so expect an eclectic mix of absolute quality to nod your head to.

And of course. Who else could host such an evening but our very own Rusty Mahone.

We’ll hopefully see you there for a fantastic night of music.

Flipside Community Radio and Seeds Present
The Flipside @ Telfords
Thursday September 15th – 8pm – Free Entry
Live on Stage – The Daymons
Flipside DJs – Ole Smokey / Alex Arditti
Flipsideradio.org

The Daymons –
Since their formation in 2012 the daymons have been blending guitars, harmonizing voices and scintillating trumpet lines. Their song writing takes influences from the very best of the past five decades of music, with definite nods to the sixties and nineties, spinning them into something fresh and new. Their songs have an indie sensibility with no fear of a danceable groove and a big, catchy chorus. The band’s exuberant live shows are a celebration and are not to be missed!
