Shindig! 50th Birthday Issue

It’s a big one for anyone; us particularly, considering what 2015 threw up. And here we are, alive and kicking at 50. The issue hits the shops on September 10th (when we will also unleash our Podcast with interviews and chat with TEMPLES, GHOSTBOX and WHITE FENCE recorded at Green Man). On October 8th we’ll have a fabulous party at Rough Trade East in London’s hip East End with THE PRETTY THINGS (sign up here).

Win a Ronnie Lane Slim Chance T Shirt

The kind folk at Toe Rag T Shirts have given us one Ronnie Lane Slim Chance in honour of issue #50 featuring The Faces on the cover. To win please answer this question: “What should have been the second hit for Ronnie Lane’s Slim Chance but wasn’t due to a BBC cameraman strike hampering the band’s Top Of The Pops appearance?”


Please email win@shindig-magazine.com with “Ronnie Lane” in the title and state whether you would like a small, medium or large T-shirt. Closing date is October 1st.11052036_10152986548111962_5807431856007403790_n

Shindig! on Green Man Radio

Jon and Andy had a lovely time at this year’s Green Man (full review to run in issue #50) and were invited by friend Will Hodgkinson to come onto his “’70s Acid-Folk Hour” show on the festival’s own radio station. (Listen here.) They popped in, philosophised and then headed off out into the temporal sun to enjoy yet another fine Welsh ale. 11900015_10206903973175383_3995401922685020408_n

The Faces “1970” – Cover Stars of Issue #50

We just love The Faces, and we know you do too. They really were the most relaxed, yet feral, band of their era. Mark Raison and Jon ‘Mojo’ Mills met Kenney Jones two weeks back (for the now written) cover story that charts the band’s formation and rapid rise.

Enjoy a live ’70 show recorded at The Marquee and a cool early interview with the band below, alongside information on the forthcoming boxset.

Blitzen Trapper ‘Lonesome Angel’

Acclaimed Portland, Oregon rock quintet Blitzen Trapper are set to release new album All Across This Land on October 2nd via Lojinx in Europe (on Vagrant in the US). The band have built a solid reputation unafraid to take chances by incorporating a vast array of influences from Americana to psychedelic, to rock and to folk. 

Shindig! think this sample sounds great.

Promised Land Sound ‘She Takes Me There’

Wow, after the delights of yesterday’s country-rock sensations GospebeacH here’s a passive new tune from Promised Land Sound; a fine Nashville based band featuring members of The Paperhead and Fly Golden Eagle. This track is taken from their forthcoming second album For Use And Delight issued by Paradise Of Bachelors on October 2nd.
