Yeah yeah I know, I said no more gigs but when Bombed Out Records come calling, who knows what happens when you say no? This little shin-dig is a warm up for the main event the following day at The Well but should provide some pretty awesome entertainment for the good people of Leeds on a cold Friday night!
The gig takes place at The Fox & Newt (just a minute away from The Well) in their suprisingly well kitted out gig room (and check out the amazingly cheap and tasty food before the gig!), performing for you on the night we have…
Protectors - Wakefield’s finest! Gradually becoming Legends in the locality of Yorkshire (and hopefully soon and beyond). Having plied their trade in such previous greats as Nathanial Green, Dugong, Chopper and Pylon these lads know how to rock out a tune or two. Evoking Supergrass and Guided By Voices their indie ditties are well worth checking out.
Digger Barnes - all the way from Hamburg, this travelling troubedour was last seen over these shores with Austin Lucas and left quite a mark. If you’re into Richmond Fontaine and the like then be sure to get down!
Achtung Everybody! Fast, tight and sexy. And that’s just frontman Benny’s legs when he’s on his bike. AE! don’t play enough gigs due to several complicated reasons (disorganisation apparently one of the more prevelant ones), so make sure you get to see them here. Technical yet catchy punk rock not a million miles from Strike Anywhere and all that.
Jimmy Islip. Yes he of That Fucking Tank, The Magnificent, Kill Yourself and Milloy but on his tod! Singing bittersweet acoustic anthems. Check out his split with Helen Chambers, Sam Russo and Chuck Ragan. Good times.
Get Human. Er it’s me new band innit! Don’t let that put you off. I’d like to think we sound like Snuff, J-Church or Sicko but I’d also like a lot of things so don’t put too much weight on that.
