    Des Was a Bowie Fan ft The Death of Pop, Drömstad + Arkless

    Fri 28 Apr

    7:45 pm


    Here’s the first of a bunch of sweet summer nights on the Des Was A Bowie Fan dancefloor at Paper Dress Vintage, the blue touch paper lit by a trio of Pop bands wired to the stars.

    Bringing the Shivers Inside between 8pm and 11pm with a mix of janglegaze, dreampop and “twinklegaze” will be The Death Of Pop, Drömstad and Arkless.

    The Death Of Pop have a swirling, atmospheric and summer-sweet sound with lyrical touches that play on your heartstrings. The band themselves call it “janglegaze”, dancing in the spaces between My Bloody Valentine, The Beach Boys and Teenage Fanclub. New single ‘Pain is Needless’ comes out on April 15th.


    Drömstad have a sound of howling Pop empathy that gets into your bones; a euphoric, melancholic jangle and a burning lyrical interior, matching the serpentine dreaminess of Slowdive with a vivid, sharp-edged soul.


    Arkless play sweetly rollocking nocturnal “twinkle-Pop” that cuts, burns and sparkles with melody and poetry. Their ‘Arkless’ mini-LP, released on Barely Legal Records, is available via their Bandcamp.


    Then at 11pm, Kerouac’s bandanna wraps round the lampshade, Dai Dominoes adjusts his false teeth, and the dancefloor blazes to the sounds of Indiepop, New Wave, Post-Punk, Synth Pop, Riot Grrrl, 60s Soul and Rock’n’Roll till 3am.

    All flaming limbs at the front line x

    7:45 pm


    FIKA Recordings Present Stanley Brinks & Enderby’s Room – Weds 26 April

    Advance tickets available here: http://www.wegottickets.com/fikarecordings

    Stanley Brinks

    Stanley Brinks was born in Paris, France, in 1973. Half Swedish, half Moroccan, strongly inclined to travel the world, he soon began spending most of his life on the road and developed a strong relationship with New York.

    By the late 90s he’d become a full time singer-songwriter – André Herman Düne – as part of three piece indie-rock band, Herman Düne. Several albums and Peel sessions later and after a decade of touring Europe, mostly with American songwriters such as Jeffrey Lewis, Calvin Johnson and early Arcade Fire he settled in Berlin.

    The early carnival music of Trinidad became a passion, and in the early 21st century he became the unquestioned master of European calypso, changing his name to Stanley Brinks. Under this moniker he has recorded more than 100 albums, collaborated with the New York Antifolk scene on several occasions, recorded and toured with traditional Norwegian musicians, and played a lot with The Wave Pictures.

    “an absolute joy” Q
    “a set that’s as wistful and charming as it is playful and self-concious”
    “immaculately played, unpolished and, for the most, jubilant in spirit and mood, it’s a gem of its kind.” Folk Radio

    Enderby’s Room

    Enderby’s Room is fiddle player Dan Mayfield, once from rural Lincolnshire, but he has now found home living in London. His folk tinged songs reflect on his traditional folk upbringing. Mayfield has played violin for many artists including Daniel Johnston, Darren Hayman, The Wave Pictures, Allo Darlin’ and the Belles of London City morris dancers.
    Over the past ten years he has gently built up a collection of his own songs, which he performs with his band Enderby’s Room. The name comes from an Anthony Burgess character called Mr Enderby who composed his prose inside the toilet. The band’s make up has been constantly evolving; around 30 different individuals have been a part of Enderby’s Room over the last decade, before settling on the current 5 piece lineup.
    Enderby’s Room’s sound features a Victorian pedal harmonium, together with French horn, double bass, ukulele, guitar and percussion.

    Tickets: £8.50 adv / £10 on the door

    Homemade Disco: Lone Taxidermist, Martin Tomlinson, Heart Years

    Tue 25 Apr

    7:45 pm


    Ticket Link: https://billetto.co.uk/en/e/lone-taxidermist-martin-tomlinson-heart-john-doran-tickets-188099

    Following on from the amazing Laura Cannell/Hirvikolari show in March, the next Homemade Disco should be just as special.

    Lone Taxidermist, the chaotic project of cosmic Cumbrian synth artist Natalie Sharp should be a similarly stupefying live experience. On her new project Trifle she’s joined by Philip Winter and Will Kwerk for a journey into the murky, intertwined depths of sexual fetishes and food. The live show features music from the group’s forthcoming debut album of the same name, and explores the shadowy worlds of sploshing, cake sitting and crush fetish. It features a visual backdrop from a series of YouTube cake fetishists, and AV artist Ross Blake’s specially commissioned projections.

    Support comes from Martin Tomlinson of Selfish Cunt and Heart Years.

    John Doran from The Quietus will also be doing a DJ Set
