Terry And Gerry are of course the seminal, thinking, drinking man’s skiffle cowpunk indie pop n roll group. Where Buddy Holly meets zippy infectious punk tood and pure big hearted Brummie joie de vivre… and eveyone’s a winner…Fresh from their rapturously received tour support with none other than The Quo, yes as in Status Quo, Bugbear tear Gerry Colvin away from Rick Parfitt’s pad and all the supermodels and starlets sipping pink Champagne n that and get him on the blower for an interview at Shoreditch Radio. Terry and Gerry initially reformed in 2014 after a 27 year hiatus, to ply a show in honour of their biggest fan, the late unutterably great John Peel. Status Quo famously played at Peel’s wedding come to think of it so while we ponder the zen-ness of all this why not kick back and enjoy the show. Be rude not to, it’s chock fulla good music naturally…And another thing….
From La Belle France, where they know a thing or two about Le Rock, Natacha B, Bugbear’s very own seeker of truth with a sharpened pencil and an enquiring mind has been tracking down musicians performing in The Dublin Castle sooncome and grilling them for your greater enlightenment. Not literally grilling them you understand, although, haha, there have been a few over the years we’d quite like to give the old Joan Of Arc treatment to…anyway read on dot dot dot.
Friday 22nd May Dublin Castle
New Vinyl + Centre Excuse + Hands Of Industry + Alias Kid
New Vinyl- Rootsy Americana infused indie-blues-rock with a bit of a nod to Kings Of Leon but it’s a gritty Northern indie take on them groovy inbreds. Centre Excuse- Eyeless In Gaza or Stuart Moxham (Young Marble Giants) spring to mind here, or maybe Colin Vercombe (Black)…In creating a blend of Electronic synthesizers and rock influences, a new energetic dynamic sound has already seen them in the vanguard of an emerging breed of underground electronic artists.
Centre Excuse has independently released one 6 track EP ‘All Systems Go’ and 6 singles, gaining coverage on local, national and Internet radio & press. Performing at some of the best venues across the UK and with over 600,000 views on YouTube….
Hands Of Industry- with the nod to Heaven 17 in the name we know we’re in the indie electropop realm here, harks back to early Human League too, especially the vocals, whilst the keys are on a Depeche Mode trip and there’s some nice solid live drums. There’s a bit of a goth element too..think late ’80s Sister Of Mercy in particular… HOI make a very convincing noise.
Alias Kid- ‘by far the next big band coming out of Manchester’…. They are causing a huge stir up north and we want to extend our fan base down South.…got that Manc monkey classicism for sure…
Doors from 7.15
