Slaves



DZ Deathrays

  Saturday 26th April 2014
SLAVES
DZ DEATHRAYS
B.C. & THE CHAIN GANG

We are very excited to welcome back Slaves to The Brickyard who delivered one of the stand out performances from last year.

We are all SLAVES. We are all slaves to something; our jobs, our families, our friends, our lives, hostage to finance, the money we need to earn to survive. Kent based duo Slaves, however, are breaking out of the shackles and doldrums with a vicious and highly original take on raw garage indie rock. Fronted by Isaac Holman on drums and vocals and Laurie Vincent on guitar, Slaves aren't like other bands. Isaac stands up in-front of his drums; there's no kick drum, just snare, two cymbals and floor tom. He replaces the thud of the kick by battering on the floor tom, propelling the sound forward with tribal rhythms and a seething vocal attack whilst beside him Laurie peels off wave-upon-wave of brittle post-punk guitar noise. Slaves are fast, noisy, aggressive and real.

Having already played storming shows and tours with Drenge, Andrew WK, The Skints and Vuvuvultures as well as an incredible set at Reading and Leeds festivals in August 2013. The Reading festival appearance was documented by BBC and has been followed up with a filmed Maida Vale Session with full support across Radio 1 and Radio 6 including Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens and Steve Lamacq who are all now big fans of the young band.

The song Beauty Quest (taken from their 2012 mini album 'Sugar Coated Bitter Truth') was heavily supported by radio and there's no sign of relenting as the band head out to Texas for SXSW festival in March followed by a European tour with Blood Red Shoes in April.

Their next single, the garage rock inspired 'Where's Your Car Debbie?' was released in January and will mark what is looking to be a very exciting 2014 for the band.

Who knew that only two young men from Kent could make so much noise?

"Slaves have a uniqueness that every band desires and in my opinion, they are the ones to watch this year." - Artrocker

"Slaves are brilliant. A pair of punks from Maidstone, their spit-in-your face songs contain more comedy, noise and boozed-up aggro than 47 series of danny dyer's deadliest men." - The Fly

FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS

To listen to most bands is to be briefly submerged into the scene they’re a part of. That’s not the case with Fearless Vampire Killers. No, this most willfully unconventional of rock bands have more ambitious plans in store, providing what Rock Sound describes as "an instant antidote to everything predictable and mundane" in the process.

Absolva

  Saturday 10th May 2014
Raz White Entertainment Presents:

ABSOLVA
BABYLON FIRE
DIE NO MORE
BLUE ORIGIN

Absolva is a classic metal band based in Manchester, UK featuring twin lead guitar in the great British tradition. Formed in May 2012 by Chris Appleton and Martin McNee (both of Fury UK) they were joined by Dan Bate (Point Blank Fury) to complete the line up.

Chris and Martin had featured together since October 2007 as part of successful classic metal trio Fury UK, a band which clearly established itself at the forefront of the UK scene.

From inception to May 2012, Fury UK signed to Rocksector Records, released three albums, one EP and one DVD. The band also toured UK and Europe extensively as a headline act, played Bloodstock, Hammerfest and PPM Festivals and toured as guests with Iced Earth, Saxon, Y&T, Michael Schenker and Blaze Bayley.

When Fury UK bassist Luke Appleton (brother of Chris) joined American powerhouse metallers Iced Earth, Fury UK was put on hold whilst Chris and Martin decided to form Absolva.

10cc's Graham Gouldman   Thursday 22nd May 2014
10cc's GRAHAM GOULDMAN & HEART FULL OF SONGS

As a founding member of 10cc, and the genius behind such pop hits as 'Rubber Bullets', 'I’m Not in Love' and 'Dreadlock Holiday', is Graham Gouldman one of the greatest songwriters of all time? We think so, and The Songwriters Hall of Fame clearly agrees! In June 2014 he is to be inducted into their ranks at a special ceremony in New York, joining previous inductees such as Noel Coward, Irving Berlin, Burt Bacharach, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Leonard Cohen.

It was in 1965 that the teenage Gouldman enjoyed his first taste of chart success, penning The Yardbirds’ classic single 'For Your Love' – a Top 10 hit on both sides of the Atlantic. Not bad for a lad who still had a day job at a gents outfitters at the time! From then on he was one of the 1960s’ most prolific hitmakers penning 'Bus Stop' and 'Look Through Any Window' for The Hollies, 'No Milk Today' and 'Listen People' for Herman’s Hermits, 'Tallyman' for Jeff Beck and 'Pamela Pamela' for Wayne Fontana; as well as follow-up Yardbirds hits 'Heart Full of Soul' and 'Evil Hearted You'.

And in 1972, he became a bona fide pop star in his own right, joining forces with Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Crème to form the mighty 10cc! A string of chart smashes followed… not just the aforementioned trio of Number 1s, but also timeless classics like 'Donna', 'Art for Art’s Sake', 'The Things We Do For Love' and 'Wall Street Shuffle'. And in 1987 he joined forces with legendary US songwriter Andrew Gold to form Wax, whose single 'Building a Bridge to Your Heart' brought further international chart success.

The Beat

Carlisle Music City
  Bank Holiday Weekend - Saturday 24th May 2014
THE BEAT
PLUS SUPPORT

“…..The Beat. Who needs the brave new world when the old school is still this good?” - Sunday Mirror

One of the biggest bands of the 2-Tone movement, The Beat present a wall of sound that transcends time and ska fusion rhythms to ignite a crowd. They play with the sole aim of connecting with and entertaining their appreciative audience with their relentless energy and world class musicianship.

The Beat are known the world over for a string of hit singles, including "Mirror in the Bathroom", "Too Nice To Talk To", "Can't Get Used To Losing You", "Hands off She's Mine" and "All Out To Get You". Their songs of peace, love and unity fuse ska, pop, reggae and punk rock and their dynamic live show has garnered them a loyal following at home and abroad.

The Beat formed in Birmingham in 1978, part of the West Midlands ska revival scene that also produced The Specials and The Selecter, whilst London saw the formation of Madness and The Bodysnatchers.

Their first single was an arresting version of Smokey Robinson’s “Tears Of A Clown”, given a completely new feel, and was backed with their own composition “Ranking Full Stop”. Released in a one-off deal on Jerry Dammers’ Chrysalis-backed 2-Tone label, the single stormed into the Top 10 in December 1979, and saw the band appear twice on Top Of The Pops. Backed by Arista, the band formed their own label Go-Feet Records. The first release in February 1980 was another Top 10 hit, “Hands Off... She’s Mine”, and was the first of twelve chart singles for the band on Go-Feet.

The band released three albums “I Just Can’t Stop It” (1980), “Wha’ppen” (1981) and “Special Beat Service” (1982), which contained many tracks that demonstrated their more politicised and socially-conscious leanings. All three albums were reissued in the Summer of 2012 by Edsel Records with bonus additions.

The 2014 line-up features Ranking Roger and Ranking Junior on vocals, Fuzz Townshend on drums plus Andy Pearson, Matt Godwin and Steve Harper and Bobby Bird on bass, sax and guitars.

Dragonforce   Tuesday 23rd September 2014
DRAGONFORCE

Dragonforce will embark on a massive 20 date UK and Ireland tour in September under the strapline ‘….this time it’s personal’ alluding to the fact that instead of playing a handful of larger venues the band are playing many shows geographically spread out across the country.

Commenting on the nature of the tour Herman Li said “We did a tour like this in between the 'Sonic Firestorm' and 'Inhuman Rampage' albums and have wanted to repeat it ever since but couldn’t because of touring commitments elsewhere in the world. This time we were determined to make it happen so we’re going to some cities we haven’t visited for years and some we’ve never visited at all.

One of the venues is a boat and one is a deconsecrated church! It will be great to see the fans up close and personal again, it’s going to be very hot, very sweaty and great fun!”.

Doors: 7.30pm
Admission: £16.00 advance. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.
Tickets: Buy tickets online* or call SeeTickets on 0871 220 0260*. Alternatively pop into The Kings Head (over 18s only) or S4*.

Kids In Glasshouses   Friday 17th October 2014
KIDS IN GLASS HOUSES
PLUS SUPPORT

After 10 successful years, Kids In Glass Houses have decided to call it a day.

This comes as no easy decision as Aled explains...“It's a surreal and daunting moment when you realise that you're contemplating bringing to an end something that has given you unquantifiable joy and satisfaction, and that is so personal that it embodies who you are or have been perceived as for so long.

”The band have had an incredible run which spans over 10 years. They’ve had chart success with multiple albums/singles, sold out numerous tours, toured with incredible bands and travelled the world doing what they do best. It’s a sad but an exciting time in the KIGH camp and no doubt their fans will be feeling the same.

Aled goes on...“It's not an easy void to comprehend filling, but I think now is the right time for us to do it. We're all unified in this belief and excited by the prospect of ending things in the best possible spirit at the end of the year. We've known this day was coming for quite a while and have done our best to make sure that the next few months are as memorable as those years that have come before. I really can't thank everyone who has supported us enough.

”To coincide with the tour the band are producing exclusive Smart Casual and Dirt T-shirt, Vinyl and screen print ticket bundles. These are available now (26th Feb) for pre-order from - http://www.kidsinglasshouses.com

The South Wales quartet started in 2003 and saw success on the strength of the singles "Give Me What I Want" and "Saturday" off their debut album Smart Casual in 2008. They released their second album Dirt early 2010, which saw the band releasing four singles from this, most notably "Matters at All". The band's third album, In Gold Blood, was released on 15 August 2011.

Cockney Rejects  

Saturday 22nd November 2014
COCKNEY REJECTS
THE MUFF WIGS

Rarely in the long history of British rock’n’roll has there been a story of such depth, magnitude and sheer turbulence as that of the Cockney Rejects.

The band were formed in the late Seventies in East London as an answer to the art school punk that had dominated the scene up until then.

Fiercely working class in stance and attitude, the band eschewed the political ramblings of punk’s first wave and sang about the circumstances that surrounded them and millions of street kids in Britain’s inner cities- Police harassment, street battles and football to name three.

Signed by EMI after playing four local gigs (less than the pistols!) they found themselves playing sell out tours the length and breadth of the UK and seeing their debut album storm the charts.

Top of the pops appearances followed, which became the stuff of legend as the band generally ran amok in the hallowed White city studios, finally getting banned from the show for their boisterous behavior.

In 1980 the band recorded a riotous version of ‘I’m forever blowing bubbles’ to celebrate the fact that their beloved West Ham United had reached the FA cup final that year, but their devotion to all things claret and blue proved to be their downfall as the gigs became battlegrounds between the band and rival supporters, culminating in the vicious ‘Battle of Birmingham’ that led to serious criminal charges that in turn led to the band being finished as a touring unit.

With the band’s first phase being over, in the interim they were discovered by a brand new fanbase such as US bands Rancid and Green Day, who cherished the Rejects and their terrace punk singalong anthems which, in turn, inspired a new generation of kids to check them out.

Due to overwhelming demand, the band returned to the live circuit in 2000, and have since gone from strength to strength, playing to hundreds of thousands of people across the globe with a live set that is so energetic that it has to be seen to be believed.

With the fractionalization of the late ‘70’s and early ‘80’s now gone for good, with every gig becoming a party for fans and band alike, the Cockney Rejects go from strength to strength.

With a feature length documentary, ‘East End Babylon’ and a brand new album of the same name being released in October 2012, there has never been a better time to check out the band that inspired a generation with their timeless brand of terrace sing along classics and white hot live set.

Doors: 8pm
Admission: £14.00 advance / £16.00 on the door. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.
