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.
