Monolithic riffs from Birmingham’s new alt/ math rock power trio. Ferocious musicianship combined with an unforgettable live experience make TSND MNTN an act not to be missed
“A legend on the Bristol scene, Rita’s songs are an explosion of sexual, religious and social imagery driven by an energy that comes across just as strongly in an acoustic set as when Rita performs with a band.”
Known for her insurmountable stage presence, Rita performs solo, or with her band consisting of John Langley (drums) and Mike Youe (bass). Rita is also known for her time spent as guitarist in Bristol Art-Rock band the Blue Aeroplanes, of which her accompanying musicians are current members.
Lost Tiger To The Wild is an alternate-indie rock band from Worcester described by BBC Introducing as “great guys, with great melodies and a great live show”. Having turned down university offers last year to pursue a career in music, they attracted the attention of a manager and booking agent in February. Since then they have played shows across the UK university circuit supporting the likes of Tinie Tempah, Wheetus, Lithal Bizzle and Sigala.
Worcester based Musician and poet Vinny Peculiar [aka Alan Wilkes] has been variously described as – ‘An under sung national treasure’ [UNCUT Magazine 2014] – a warm hearted Morrissey [Q Magazine 2014] and the missing link between Jarvis Cocker and Roger McGough [Irish Times 2014]. He’s released eleven albums of outsider pop music to great critical acclaim. A new ‘concept’ album Silver Meadows, [Fables from the Institution] is currently in development as a musical stage play.
Peculiar has collaborated with Bill Drummond [KLF, SOUP ART], and his various bands have included ex members of The Smiths, OASIS, Aztec Camera & The Fall. Live shows have garnered comparisons to Eels, John Cooper Clarke and the more pastoral elements of The Kinks.
He’s opened for British Sea Power, Edwyn Collins and Luke Haines amongst others and is a former compere on the Glastonbury Acoustic Stage.
“They are young, fearless and immensely talented. Appreciated by critics and audience alike, the quintet mysteriously named Nth Cave is taking the West Midlands music scene by storm” – Rita Dabrowicz
nth cave are a female-fronted indie/alternative band from worcester who deliver a mix of modern indie and powerful grunge in their original material, with a few classic covers thrown in. Read about them in the June edition of SLAP MAG (page 42) and check out their music video (both linked below):
The Humdrum Express – Breezily delivered observation, withering social critique and sharp wit are fused with a mix of familiar cultural references and surreal characters.
Recent singles Festival At Home, Cryptic Self Pity, Double Edged Swords, Copy Cats and Leopard Print Onesie have been championed by Steve Lamacq on his BBC 6music show. All five songs can be found on the current album, The Day My Career Died.
