THIS WICKED TONGUE
“Wow!” – Tom Robinson, 6th Feb 2012 after playing This Wicked Tongue’s song “Ray Mears versus Bear Grylls” on 6 Music. That’s the only word you need to really understand this band, though Amazing Radio were a bit more wordy – “epic gargantuan rock” and “sublime female vocals” was their take. The band’s live show measures up to and even eclipses their recorded sound. With the opening slot at 2012 Green Man under their belts already since forming in 2011, this is one band that justifies over and over again the reviewers’ hype: “incredible – stunning from start to finish”; “I am speechless… utterly infectious ”… the list goes on but you probably get the picture.
THE TUESDAY CLUB
Remember Top of the Pops? No we mean THE Top of the Pops. When bands went on TV, Jimmy Saville served up a menu of good times, smiling, dancing and just not taking yourself too seriously. Well The Tuesday Club are about to re-ignite that feeling. They release their debut single Dolly Dynamite, the lead track from an Ep via Perfect Pop in September. The whole band have a look and style that falls somewhere between The Rocky Horror show, Oh Boy!, Carry on Screaming, a BBC period drama and Dad’s Army. The Tuesdays certainly give off a refreshing air of who cares, which has got to be worth something in todays dark days of austerity and excessively skinny jeans!
“If Roxy Music were doing the Rocky Horror show, they’d sound like this” – Steve Honest
Hailing from Aberdeen in Scotland, the teenager exhibits maturity beyond her years with a flawless ability to write charming lyrics, further emphasised by her unique, delicate vocals, which she delivers beautifully. In the short space of time since Cara made her live debut, she has already supported the likes of Gemma Hayes, Rachel Sermanni, Pearl & The Puppets and Stephen Fretwell as well as underground indie hero Jonah Matranga. Cara is touring to promote the release of her debut EP “Have You Ever Wondered” which has seen her described by Radio One as having a “totally unique voice”.
Esperi is the project of Chris Lee Marr, from Dundee in Scotland. He is more than your average solo artist as his looping guitar parts, coupled with his multi instrumental talents create amazing soundscapes that will undoubteldy raise the hairs on the back of your neck. Debut album ‘In A Moment, Emotion, Sentiment’ was released in July via Fall On Records.
