Uncover Music Presents:
Vinny Peculiar [aka Alan Wilkes] grew up in Worcestershire and trained as a nurse before signing to Manchester cult label Ugly Man records [former home to Elbow]. He’s since put out twelve albums of literate autobiographical pop music over a twenty-year career touring band, solo and duo shows.
Variously described as – ‘an under sung national treasure’ [UNCUT] – ‘a warm hearted Morrissey’ [Q Magazine] and ‘the missing link between Jarvis Cocker and Roger McGough’ [Irish Times] past work associations include Bill Drummond [KLF], Luke Haines and Jah Wobble [PIL] and his various bands have included ex members of The Smiths, OASIS, Aztec Camera & The Fall. He’s written and recorded as Parlour Flames, the band he formed in 2013 with ex-OASIS rhythm guitarist Bonehead.
LOST WAVE MUSIC
A singer-songwriter from Worcester, UK, who has been writing songs since the age of 14, began a journey soaking upinfluences that include Gram Parsons, Jack Kerouac, Neil Young and The Band. This journey into roots rock music and literature has led Dance to record the album ‘Penance’ that pays tribute to his heroes, whilst simultaneously creating something that is “majestic” and “mesmerising.”
