Fri 30 Nov
Join us on Friday 30 November as Joel Sarakula launches a brand new club night, here’s what he’s got to say about what’s planned…
Do you like Soft Rock Music? Are sweet falsetto vocals, fruity chords and easy, soulful beats your guilty pleasure? Then I want to welcome you to my Soft Rock Cafe!
I’ll be hosting the Soft Rock Cafe at Paper Dress Vintage on Nov 30. It’s a celebration of our much-misunderstood genre, featuring the latest and greatest in live and pre-recorded Soft Rock, Soul and Bedroom Disco. As well as playing a few of my own jams I have for your listening pleasure some of my favourite London artistes who know how to get soft and soulful:
As well as DJ sets from Mr. Mellow, Paul Milne (Green Seagull) and Smooth Sailors till 3am
There’s enough hardness in this world… it’s time to get soft.

/// THE LINE-UP ///
Culling influences from jazz cats and art rockers, B-movies and trash television, via Lynch and Tarantino, Late TV are the moonlighting house band for a surreal all-night dream club where the intangible dance floor shifts and folds to become the set piece of a talk show beamed onto the farthest reaches of your channel selector.
James Brute writes spooked out songs of love, loss and lust and delivers them in a heady mix of acid blues, doom-wop and rock n’roll.
The former front man of The Brute Chorus released the a cappella single Bury Yourself in 2014 with long-term collaborator Mat Martin. The single got picked up by John Kennedy on XFM and garnered a range of press including the NME. Shows followed in support of Nadine Shah, Kingsley Chapman and the Murder, John J Presley, Furs and Big Girls alongside legendary basement parties in Homerton under the old Railroad Café.
As the sound became more expansive he began to build his band, now featuring Dave Ferrett (Bass, Vocals & Percussion), Johnny Manning (Keyboards and percussion) and Findlay William Brown (Drums).
“…a must see for anyone with a hankering for bleak-abilly blues.” – NME
A new band. Soundscapes, immersion, installations, soundtracks, no rules.
THE FALLEN SKY
Drawing influence from the dream-like, distortion-laden shoegaze bands of the 90’s… atmospheric and melodic, and harking to the etherial soundscapes of David Lynch.
