After the live music our regular final Friday of the month Paper Dress 80’s Club takes over the airwaves
Be ready for a ravy dancy Friday!
Volk fuses electronica and post-punk with rock, pop and psychedelia (Bowie, Roxy Music, Flaming Lips).
Led by a Ukrainian/British artist Igor Volk who has previously played in New Young Pony Club (2007 Mercury Prize nominees), Trans (Bernard Butler) and CSS, the four-piece band also includes Isaac Tucker (drums), Alex Bingham (bass) – both from Spektrum – and Dan Bramley on keyboards.
CHEWY SHE Is an ephemeral electro-disco-punk band. Singing about irreproachable themes like sex, lost loves, mustard or even where do we go when we don’t have any ego.
They mix the spontaneity of punk with the precise beat of electro while having melancholic songs that seems to have already been heard in a prom party in 1960s America
Adam Beattie (electric guitar and vocals), Marco Quarantotto (drums) and Filippo Ferazzoli (electric guitar) collaborate to bring you a heavy and dark blues and groove band. Selecting suitable pieces from Adam’s 15 year back catalogue of cross-genre song-writing, they reinterpret for the big stage with live and wild improvisation. So a unique line up of two electric guitarists, virtuosic drums and poetical lyrics, what more could you ask for!?
Adam also plays with PicaPica featuring BBC folk award winner Josienne Clarke and Samantha Whates and Grammy nominated producer/engineer Sonny Johns, a band signed to Rough Trade Records. And he is part of Band of Burns, a 12-piece folk band of singers and instrumentalists.
