AMY RIGBY BAND (New York City)

amypoetryshirt copy.jpg

For these UK dates, Amy will be accompanied by Eric Goulden (Wreckless Eric) on bass and guitar and Ian Button (Papernut Cambridge, Death in Vegas) on drums

“Her whimsical, often autobiographical songs are masterful. Funny and enticing, she is up there with the likes of Paul Simon and Randy Newman.”

— New York Times

“Rigby combines formidable aural craftsmanship with blunt, self-deprecating honesty.”

— Village Voice

“Her wit, emotional intelligence, and superior gift for melody have enabled her to capture a moment in the lives of men and women as precisely as Carole King did in the early 70’s.”

— Chicago Reader

 The Old Guys, Amy Rigby's first solo album in a dozen years, measures the weight of heroes, home; family, friends and time. Philip Roth and Bob Dylan, CD/cassette players, touring, the wisdom of age and Walter White, groupies, Robert Altman, egg creams and mentors are paid tribute. Twelve songs written unmistakably by Amy and recorded by Wreckless Eric in upstate New York, The Old Guys is the sound of a good girl grown up, never giving up.

Amy Rigby has made a life out of writing and singing about life. With bands Last Roundup and the Shams in eighties NYC East Village to her solo debut Diary Of A Mod Housewife out of nineties Williamsburg; through a songwriting career in 2000s Nashville and during the past decade with duo partner Wreckless Eric, she’s released records on visionary independent labels Rounder, Matador, Signature Sounds and reborn Stiff Records as well as her and Eric’s own Southern Domestic Recordings.  For the last twenty years she has toured the US, Canada, UK and Europe, appearing on Fresh Air with Terry Gross, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, World Cafe, Whad’Ya Know, All Things Considered, BBC Radio 6 Music’s Marc Riley Show and Mountain Stage. She lives with Wreckless Eric in the Hudson Valley. Her record “Dancing With Joey Ramone” is a staple of Little Steven’s Underground Garage radio show, and kitchen sink anthem “Are We Ever Gonna Have Sex Again?” is played in cafes and bars and living rooms by real life mod housewives and husbands.

SLOW RIOT (London) + Wet Bath


A heady mix of layered atmospherics and fuzzy pop that bodes well for the future” – Drowned in Sound

“With this latest release, Slow Riot join the ranks of Eagulls and Savages at the forefront of a new breed of bands fusing danceable beats with dark-pop sentiments.” – The Line Of Best Fit

Slow Riot are releasing their new double A-side single, ‘Voyeur/Burn in the City’, via Straight Lines Are Fine on February 2nd. The tracks are the first new material from the band since last year’s ‘Pink December’. Much has happened in the interim; the band expanding to a four-piece after the addition of second guitarist Liam O’Connor (formerly of Fonda), an intense period of songwriting, honing their live craft via numerous festival appearances (notably Electric Picnic, Other Voices), and the recording of a debut album which will be released later in 2018. ‘Voyeur and Burn in the City’ showcase their new approach and provide a tantalizing glimpse of what is to come with their debut full length release.

Slow Riot emerge from their hometown of Limerick backed with support from the likes of The Irish Times, Nialler9, Other Voices, Electric Picnic, Today FM and Whelan’s One’s to Watch; their plaudits building at an impressive rate. They’re flying the flag for a new breed of Irish acts ready for the global stage.

They have also amassed a rich profile of support this side of the Irish Sea, with the likes of Drowned In Sound, Q Magazine, The Line Of Best Fit, Clash and Gigwise amongst many others citing them for big things. Previous single ‘Trophy Wife’ earned the band plaudits from Shaun Keaveny on the 6Music Breakfast Show, Radio X, Absolute and was a mainstay on the band’s native Today FM with DJ Paul McLoone declaring Slow Riot to be “my new favourite Irish band”.

Bizzaro Promotions Presents; THE CRAVATS + The Folk Devils + Otalgia


Legendary UK post-punk sax-inflected surrealists The Cravats are back with their first new album since the early ‘80s. They were early favorites of legendary BBC DJ John Peel (they recorded four sessions) and released music for beloved UK indie labels like Small Wonder and Crass Records. They sound as madcap, adrenalized and inventive as ever. Nobody sounds quite like The Cravats.

Formed in Redditch, England in 1977, these dada fueled, Jazz-Punk colossals soon became firm John Peel favourites with their unique brand of sax-riddled, bass-laced punk weirdness, doing four sessions for the great man and releasing numerous records on Small Wonder, Crass, Glass and Corpus Christi between 1978 and 1985, as well as, ‘Séance’, a collaborative single with Paul Hartnoll of Orbital in 2006. 

Applauded by such luminaries as Mark E. Smith, Jello Biafra, Steve Albini, Mike Patton and Henry Rollins amongst others, the band reformed in 2009 in order to play select shows in the UK and abroad and have since performed at the UK’s Rebellion Festival five years running, played as special guests of Steve Ignorant at the final Crass - Last Supper show at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire as well as the Steve Albini-curated ATP, the critically acclaimed Incubate Festival in Holland, the Unpleasant Meeting Festival, Paris and have recently supported Sleaford Mods amongst others. 

After two critically acclaimed 7" singles (“Jingo Bells” & “Blurred”) released in 2016 on Overground Records, the band have recorded a new album (the first in 35 years) called 'Dustbin of Sound' which is released on Sept 29th on all formats through Overground Records. 
The band features founder and vocalist The Shend as well as legendary original Cravats saxman Svor Naan along with Viscount Biscuits on guitar, Joe 91 on bass and Rampton Garstang on drums. Oscillator wiz Simeone Cox of the legendary Silver Apples guests on “Motorcycle Man”. 

The band released two double CD retrospectives in recent years on Overground Records, the 32 track 'Land of The Giants' compilation and the band's first LP from 1978 plus all their Small Wonder singles on the 'The Cravats In Toytown' CD which includes a bonus disc of the original 8-track master tapes re-imagined by legendary Crass mainman Penny Rimbaud. 



Folk Devils made a considerable impact on the UK music scene in the mid-80s with a run of indie chart singles and three John Peel sessions, several of which have been repeated recently by Marc Riley and Gideon Coe on 6 Music.

They recently re-issued their entire recorded output as “Beautiful Monsters” (Singles & Demo Recordings 1984-86) on the boutique label Optic Nerve, which got amazing reviews in the UK press and 4 spins on BBC6 Music. To celebrate the release, the band have done several re-union shows around the UK with like-minded bands The Inca Babies and The Membranes. John Robb from Louder Than War in his review of Preston wrote…

“Folk Devils recently returned with their punk blues sounding fully intact. Even without charismatic frontman Ian Lowery who died a long time back the band are still hypnotic. They know how to strip down the mess of blues and leave plenty of space and dynamic for their seething and tense songs that are full of the colliding riffs switching with the taut build ups that were so much part of that micro scene they ran parallel with of the Gun Club and the Birthday Party. They used to say there were no second acts in rock n roll but the Folk Devils are still further proof that age and experience can make the music even more urgent and vital and their powerful melee sounds more vital and urgent now than it did way back in the day of John Peel”


“Folk Devils gigged (and lived) hard, establishing a fearsome live reputation while sharing stages with Nick Cave and Spacemen 3” – RECORD COLLECTOR
“Folk Devils were a staple of John Peel’s legendary radio show in the mid-80s...twisting ancient blues and rockabilly riffs into hot-wired post-punk” – LOUDER THAN WAR
“Folk Devils took a torn leaf from swamp delta blues and married it to a measured Fall-like frenzy” – VIVE LE ROCK
“This excellent, feral compilation draws together on CD and vinyl their first three singles and B- sides plus eight previously unreleased demos” – UNCUT

Plus - Otalgia
Formed in 1985 as The Mist, became Black Mist and finally Otalgia (the medical term for earache), the 2 headed pop noise merchants from Wales are noise meets C86 twee in a buzzsaw of twisted tunes!

John first achieved notoriety with his eye-watering performance on Old Grey Whistle Test and subsequent hit single 'Really Free' in 1977. A heady mix of blind ambition and rank incompetence was to keep this microstar shining for almost two decades despite Otway's ability to turn any situation to his own disadvantage. 

His autobiography 'Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure' out sold, by a factor of ten, all the records he had released since his hit, and now Otway is struggling to live up to this billing - selling out London Astoria for his 2000th gig in 1993, filling the Royal Albert Hall in 1998, and charting at number 9 with his 2002 single 'Bunsen Burner'. For John 'Two Hits' Otway, 'the future's bright; the future's Otway! 

Check out tonight’s gig. Joining John on stage are Richard Holgarth on lead guitar, Seymour on bass guitar, songwriter Murray Torkildsen on guitar and drummer Adam Batterbee.!

Wreckless Eric is Eric Goulden. He was given the name to hide behind. After a while he realised he was stuck with it. Onstage he hides behind nothing, he tells the truth with big open chords, squalls of feedback, lilting enchantment, bizarre stories and backchat.

Nothing Eric has to say sounds like it was said by someone else first. Some people can’t take it. Thirty seven years of touring have left him in good shape. He’s coming to town.

His new album “amERICa” out now on Fire Records is enjoying universal acclaim

One of the greatest songwriters ever to come out of Great Britain Marc Riley BBC 6 MUSIC

amERICa is that rare record. Goulden is grownup, with all of the stereotypical benefits: an air of wisdom, emotional texture, and, perhaps most cliché of all, a seasoned voice. amERICa isn’t complacent or satisfied; Wreckless Eric anatomizes his surroundings with the wide-eyed thrill of discovery. His American flyover reveals simmering cultural disturbances and essential beauty alikePitchfork

Wreckless Eric has always been a pop musician. That is, he writes melodies with hooks in the chorus and fills his verses with quick, vivid details aimed to make you nod your head in recognition. The precise nostalgia and wry yearning he brings to this slice of autobiography rings true, funny and poignant. Ken Tucker, NPR/Fresh Air

Detroit-born legendary post-punk pop singer Lene Lovich hit the top of the UK charts with her single “Lucky Number” in 1979, and was crowned the “Queen of Quirk”, influencing a generation of pop and alternative acts, from Nina Hagen to Boy George, and from Madonna to Dresden Dolls. A normally reclusive figure, Lovich turned her back on the limelight after her third album No Man’s Land was released in 1982 amid disagreements with her record company about her unwillingness to compromise her groundbreaking visual style for the then newly emergent MTV. Subsequently she has recorded only two albums in the next thirty years. Lovich’s unique vocal and visual style, along with her catchy but experimental songwriting, has exerted a huge influence over alternative pop culture and garnered her many plaudits and continued interest. She has been described as everything from “Kate Bush on acid” to “the New Wave Maria Callas”. Her hits “Lucky Number”, “Say When”, “Bird Song” and “New Toy” are still regular features in the clubs and radio of Europe, Japan, Australia and the USA. 

In May 2012, Lene joined forces with Subterraneans frontman Jude Rawlins for a celebration of the music of German composer Kurt Weill. During the tour they hatched an idea to form a new band to take Lene’s classic material back on the road. Very soon, however, it was realised by all concerned that whilst the band was brilliantly adept at celebrating Lene's history, it was something more than that. Turning down lucrative offers to play nostalgia tours, they instead furnished themselves with a DIY manifesto and christened themselves the LENE LOVICH BAND, diving into the sweaty rock clubs of Europe without a safety net and coming up, n the words of one reviewer, "festooned with metaphorical bouquets".

At present, the band's set is a rotation of songs from Lene's back catalogue, in particular her much celebrated first three albums, although some scene-stealing goodies from her last studio album Shadows and Dust, as well as B-sides and obscurities have also made the setlist.

The Lene Lovich Band are: Lene Lovich (vocals), Jude Rawlins (guitar), Kirsten Morrison (keyboards), Valkyrie (bass) and Morgan King (drums).

There is no code of dress, only honour.

STUART MOXHAM (Young Marble Giants) + Helen McCookerybook + Steve Bush and Fran Fey


 Bizarro Promotions Presents..

Three great acts, all in one night...

Stuart Moxham, songwriting founder of Young Marble Giants and The Gist, is also a prolific solo artist who rarely plays shows but is guaranteed to air a wide range of material which all sounds distinctively him. Drawing from his mighty back catalogue he covers all the bases in an impressionistic blur of short, emotive songs each of which is a little world of its own.

“Moxham is gifted in areas which most people don't even possess”
Johnny Black, Smash Hits (1983)

Helen McCookerybook was a John Peel favourite through the '80s and '90s, singing and playing bass in Brighton outsider indiepop/punk bands Jody and the Hooligans, The Smartees and The Chefs before forming her own sumptuous, country-inflected Helen and the Horns. She has more recently helped write women back into the official history of punk with her book 'The Lost Women Of Rock: Female Musicians Of The Punk Era', which has interviews with The Mo-dettes, The Slits and Dolly Mixture amongst others. Helen's songs are beacons of outside of everything lyricism, and her set shall consist of songs from her new LP 'The Sea' and classics of yore. 

Steve Bush and Fran Fey, have been writing, recording and gigging together for well over a decade now. Their first album,´Row of Ashes', was released in November 2008, with the follow up, ´Earl Grey and Leather´ released in November 2016. Steve Bush first stepped out in Bristol with Essential Bop - one of the city´s seminal new wave bands. His reputation for intense stage performances and ascerbic lyrics has not diminished since. In 2001, after many years in London, Steve – having just returned to Bristol - released the acclaimed ´Blossom Freak´ album. Fran hails from Wales. Proficient on guitar, mandolin, zither and ukulele, Fran has played all over the world, including jamming with Arab Musicians in Kuwait and playing echoing space music atop the Himalayas. He is an urban rustic and guru combined.

They are £7.00 in advance and £9.00 on the door.
