Krankenstein

*Sponsored Post* New London musical event


Have you ever wondered what the music scene will look like in a few years time?

At the moment, the pop songs are on top of the music charts all over the world so of course it might be possible that majority of people will forget or have already forgotten about the other genres like metal, disco, jazz, classical music or rock.

But wasn’t it rock music that used to be the most played and loved genre in the past? Everybody was obsessed with The Beatles, AC/DC or Elvis Presley back in the 50’s and 60’s. So what happened?

If you ask your children who Metallica, The Rolling Stones or Nirvana are they will not know. The fact that they once were the greatest rock groups, everybody loved them and not many people listened to pop music will shock them.

But worry no more. We have a great way how to take you to a world where rock music is as admired as it has never been before!

KRANKENSTEIN is a unique theatre show that takes place in the future, in year 2059 where pop music industry rules the world. But big rock playboys have decided that it has to change. They are ready to fight for what they love, claim back all that has been stolen from them and make it even bigger and better.

If you miss the sound of deep voices and unique fashion choices, come to the London Fabric club between Tuesday 14th November and Thursday 16th November and let the sound of an electric guitar tickle your ears.

Tickets are priced at £18 each, with just 50 available per date.

GospelbeacH come to the UK – California Fantasy Tour 2017

We’re super excited to announce that our fave Cosmic Americans (the best kind) are on their way to the UK. Our very own JON ‘MOJO’ MILLS will be deejaying the London show


 

Brent Rademaker (leader and founder) says:

“I haven’t played in the UK for 15 years, I was waiting until I had something special. GospelbeacH is very special to me as it represents not only my life in music and beyond but it really gives folks a proper taste of the California rock ’n’ roll sound. Come out and dig on the West Coast vibes and help us raise the spirit of Another Summer Of Love.”

 

GospelbeacH

Brent Rademaker of furtherBeachwood Sparks and The Tyde brings his new band GospelbeacH over the UK for the first time this summer. The touring band also features ex-Slowdive and Mojave 3 drummer Ian McCutcheon.

GospelbeacH play dreamy American roots music and their new album Another Summer Of Love is out now on Alive naturalsound.

On Another Summer Of Love, like Gram Parsons, Rademaker has drawn nourishment from the openness of Southern California and the sunny, hopeful feeling that epitomises his work is in full effect here. From the kick-off ‘In The Desert’, which slyly references The Jam to the jaunty swing of ‘You’re Already Home’ which pays a subtle tribute to Rademaker’s hero Chris Hillman’s ‘Girl With No Name’, this is what Americana is supposed to be and sometimes is not. Smart, informed, soulful, well-executed and avoiding the slick assembly-line of 2017 Nashville, this is the kind of record that true fans of well-crafted tuneful rock live for.

The Damned celebrate the 40th of ‘New Rose’ with an extensive tour

The Damned set off on tour to celebrate the 40th of the first UK punk single


image-19-10-2016-at-14-15

Punk legends The Damned have announced a huge UK tour taking in more than twenty towns and cities across the UK, and have revealed they are currently working on a brand new album for 2017.
Celebrated as the most entertaining of the original punk bands, The Damned were the very first British band to release a punk single (their mighty debut ‘New Rose’, released on 22nd October 1976), the first to release an album (’77’s Damned Damned Damned) and also the first to tour America. From the very first moment they started playing live in tiny punk clubs in ’76, The Damned quickly gained a reputation as a band who would always deliver an accomplished live set.

To cap their incredible 40th Anniversary year, which has already seen the band play a memorable set at Coachella Festival, where The LA Times raved; “The Damned’s no-future UK punk thrash sounded gritty and immediate” and Rolling Stone claimed their set as “One Of The 20 Best Things We Saw”.  The band also delivered a blistering three-hour show at a completely sold-out London Royal Albert Hall in the summer. The Damned will play across the UK this winter on dates listed below where they will be playing their legendary debut album ‘Damned Damned Damned’ in full, plus a career-spanning retrospective set.

The band are currently recording a new studio album, with exclusive merchandise and experiences available to pre-order now via Pledge Music – http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/the-damned-new-album.

Following a new film documentary on The Damned, ‘Don’t You Wish That We Were Dead’, directed by Wes Orshoski (Lemmy), released in 2015 to much acclaim, BMG Music will release a new 40th anniversary Art Of The Album’CD, digital and heavyweight vinyl LP special-edition of the band’s classic debut album, Damned Damned Damned, complete with extensive new sleeve notes, in February 2017.

Always unforgettable, The Damned continue to wave the flag for originality, stick two fingers up to mediocrity and celebrate a DIY punk ethos in the face of plastic entertainment and scripted reality. Original members David Vanian and Captain Sensible never expected to still be doing it 40 years later, but here they are in town for one night only, as their loyal following will attest, all simply because they are still an incredible live band who sound as fresh and exciting as they did way back in 1976.

See The Damned live through November and December on the dates below. Tickets are on sale now at – http://www.officialdamned.com/tour/.
