ATTILA THE STOCKBROKER: Launched into public consciousness by John Peel in the early 1980s, performance poet, musician, journalist and political activist Attila the Stockbroker has spent thirty five years touring the world. Having performed over three thousand gigs in twenty four countries, releasing forty records and seven books of poetry along the way, he pauses here to relate his life story, a tale of single-minded determination to earn his living, without compromise, doing what he loves in the context of the ever changing, increasingly corporate minded politics of the last five decades. Now his autobiography tour takes him to Bristol.
'A gifted writer and a hugely likeable character...this is a superb document of a life well lived'
Dave Jennings, Louder than war

NEWTOWN NEUROTICS :Legendary, influential radical punks from Harlow, with a new documentary due out soon, Sharp songs, ancient instruments, lyrics (sadly) as relevant as ever...

LENSMEN + Brutal Wounds

len.jpg

LENSMEN: quintet are dark and atmospheric. Formed in Stroud Gloucestershire in 2016 their explorations of the passions draw influences from post punk, new wave and psychedelia.
They have been likened to Magazine, Bauhaus, Joy Division, The Sisters of Mercy and Nick Cave with momentary lapses into Richard Hawley, Tindersticks and Radio/Motor/Portis-head.

Drawing on themes of death, dying and property speculationthey provide a soundtrack to our lives and its passing. Alternating between hard and soft, quiet and loud, Lensmen tell the stories that bind us all together. Lensmen will be playing Glastonbury 2019.

BRUTAL WOUNDS - Tim Kirby (Diatribe/The Loveless/The Cabal, Andy Curry (Hidden Bloom) and Jim Johnston (Monk & Canatella/Hexit) have come together to set alight the funeral pyre of 80’s and 90’s Indie. Savage baselines, crashing guitar and drums like thunder overlaid with the resolute hostile angst of Tim Kirby’s vocals recall the halcyon days of the 4 minute warning, the Miners strike and the poll tax riots.  BRUTAL WOUNDS are here to testify that nothing much has changed.’
