psychedelia psych, rock, West Yorkshire

An evening of stunning live psychedelia

We are thrilled to present Hurricane Heart Attacks (Wrong Way Records) straight off the stage from their appearance at Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia. They play heat-hazed roadtrip soundtracks that draw from every era of psychedelia with their own strand of clangorous, melodic drone & shoegaze.

With support from the massively popular and Todmorden’s very own Featherteeth playing their beautiful chilled out psych.

Thorbjørn Risager & The Black Tornado - Danish Blues-Rockers touchdown in the UK this month!

Thorbjørn Risager & The Black Tornado……….a magnificent band and what a great new album!

They have been called one of the most successful blues & roots bands on the European continent, and are selling out most venues when they play there for the 2nd time.  From now until April next year, they have more than 50 confirmed gigs, in 8 countries and next month, they return to the UK for their first four date tour of Northern England and Scotland.  The great news for live music lovers in and around Manchester, particularly those that haven’t seen or heard them yet, is that they are playing at Band On The Wall on Sunday 1st October!

Words alone cannot convey the musical dynamics and chemistry of this Octet and the only way to truly experience this is by seeing them live. Having said this, to get a real feel for what this band are all about, you can have a look and listen to a brand new live video from Culemborg Blues (NL) at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4C5s86kBE0

In 2003, singer and guitarist Thorbjørn Risager asked some of his favourite musicians to join him in a brand new band, choosing the name ”Thorbjørn Risager Blue 7”.  Playing initially in and around Denmark, it didn’t take too long for them to get international recognition when BluesWax, a well-respected US publication made this comment about their third album ‘Here I Am’; Sometimes a singer’s voice just stands out and forces you to listen. Take one part Ray Charles, one part Bob Seger, and one part Joe Cocker and you may have the vocal instrument of Denmark’s Thorbjørn Risager”.

In between playing 100 gigs a year in 21 countries, they have managed to write, record and release a range of new material and in 2014 they secured a record deal with Ruf Records.  In the same year, before the release of the multi-award-winning album ”Too Many Roads”, they decided to add the band name ”The Black Tornado” – to signify that this is a real band and not some random musicians that back up a vocalist.

With Change My Game, Thorbjørn has raised the stakes once again. In a world where most bands are content to tread water, here’s an album that breaks new creative ground, explores fresh musical directions and delivers a bold batch of songs that are at once catchy and immediate, but rich with deeper meaning.  Released in the UK on 27th January 2017 by Ruf Records, Change My Game is not just an album title, but also the guiding ethos that has driven this band from the start. Since making their first impact with 2006’s From The Heart, Thorbjørn and his all-star line-up have dodged media pigeonholes and broken down the boundaries of genre, their confidence to experiment growing with every year spent together on the road. Now, on this 11th album, their musical leap is greater than ever before, with dynamic arrangements sent through the roof by the band’s musicianship and Thorbjørn’s electrifying vocal.

The band’s latest album has had plenty of international airplay and some really great reviews.  In the UK, Paul Jones and Huey Morgan played tracks on their BBC programmes and it regularly featured on the playlist of the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association…………and still is!

Henrik Freischlader Band play in Brighton on 24th September

Henrik Freischlader; singer, songwriter and phenomenal Guitarist from Germany………..is back in the UK with his new band this month!

Henrik loves the Blues and is always open for new musical experiments.  For this UK Tour, he has gathered seven young artists from different countries to form a new band and from a total of five individual voices, a small chorus originates which is carried by a colourful sound and a bold groove.  At times, the guitar and sax play together with the keyboards, then, in unison with the bass line – and overall, there’s a lot of room to highlight the individual male and female singers.

The great news for blues-rock fans, live music lovers and aspiring guitarists in and around Brighton, particularly those that haven’t seen or heard Henrik yet; is that the final show of his six date UK Tour takes place at Komedia on Sunday 24th September!

Henrik is a workaholic when it comes to music.  For the self-taught multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, and label owner, the stages in Europe have been a second home for many years now.  His extensive discography already contains six studio albums and three live albums.  On his own music label Cable Car Records, which he founded in 2009, Henrik has been able to realize his musical projects and experiments.  The albums “Recorded by Martin Meinschäfer”, “Still Frame Replay” with a guest appearance by Joe Bonamassa, and “Night Train to Budapest” were recorded single-handedly.  The two live albums “Tour 2010 Live” and “Live in Concerts” as well as “House in the Woods“, which was recorded together with his band, were also released on his own label.

Through numerous shows all over Europe, amongst them, performances with legends such as BB King, Peter Green, Gary Moore, and Johnny Winter, Henrik has gained a steadily increasing number of fans.  Today, the German singer & guitarist is one of the most sought-after musicians of his genre worldwide.

Words alone cannot convey the special sound this artist generates and the only way to truly experience this is by seeing him live.  Having said this, you can get a feel for what’s in store by having a look and listen to a video of the Henrik Freischlader Trio playing “Got It Made” at https://youtu.be/QZ-FfQrOlOQ
