Longy & The Gospel Trash
 + (Gotobeat Records Single Launch Party)
 + The Hairen + No Content
Longy And The Gospel Trash – “Fuck me this is good” – EDDY TEMPLE-MORRIS (Xfm)- he’s right ya know! A former X ‘Demo Of The Week’ winner natch. Positivity imbued pop eyed transcendent pop with judicious brassy fills and a righteous intensity somewhere between the Brit rock neo soul of Richard Ashcroft and the moodier areas of the Supergrass canon. Launching the banging gotobeat Records release ‘The iLLUSIONIST’ … tales of social media, reality television, and his commitment to never giving up on his dream or those who have always been there for him. Recorded at Big Jelly Studios and produced by Chris ‘The Kid’ Hayden (Florence + The Machine). Longy ramrods his band from the seaside to East London for a last outing this year. The songwriter from Essex is releasing he’s 2nd single in two months, ‘Without you’, described as Arcade Fire meets Matthew and the Atlas and they they both want to win the belt. Raw, brutal and leaving nothing for the wolves to chomp on, Longy believes if you’re coming to the table bring something worthy of keeping your seat. THE HÁIRÈN – are a Blues-Core-Grunge-Funk-Punk band currently rocking around London. The Háirèn – it’s a Chinese word meaning “to inflict suffering and victimise someone’ NOCONTENT – Formed in 2019, the provocative duo Nocontent shamelessly pirates different music genres, laying down a sensual intercourse between Rock, Punk, Garage and Hip Hop, climaxing in blazing guitar riffs, ghetto blasting drum beats and heart-stabbing vocals.
