Phantom Hound III – Sept 9th

o sweet lord it’s happening again… EVENT LINK

As you can see, this gig happens on Wed 9 Sept At The Coach House… If you don’t know about this venue, you should.  Same goes for the performers – I’m not playing this time, am just the door-bitch, but in ascending order we have:

Shonalika – one of the best singer-songwriters in a town full of ’em

Crysi di Milo – excoriating spoken word mayhem

& headliners Broken Ears – so tight and heavy it’s frankly SCARY

Music from 8pm, no messing.  The hound of pleasure calls! x


new(ish) Brighton bands I like

Just for a change, and because everyone loves a pundit, I fancy writing about local bands encountered recently who didn’t make me want to puke.

Well, not so much “writing” like a reviewer, more listing them in no particular order, without spoon-feeding – so you can discover their brilliance for yourself.  Also, lists are how we communicate nowadays:

Man Ray Sky – incredible layered guitar/electro soundscapes and vistas

Lutine – spooky anti-folk from the dark, dark ages (their debut gig in a church was stunning)

Thee Bald Knobbers – absolutely indescribable.  This link is live footage.  It’s terrifying.

Shonalika Tilak – a superb singer with some extremely dark, absorbing music

Stevie and the Nobodies – crunchy guitars, smart tunes, humour

Prissy Lips – utter fucking exotic trash glam

Plurals – drones and transcendence

Broken Ears – punchy, hard-edged acoustica (fairly new outfit, but already very strong)

& the marvellous Junkboy

An interesting mixture, and that’ll do for now – apologies to any I’ve missed out, although doubtless there’ll be more…  There were three very good acts at my recent launch gig, for example – check them out too.  In fact, check em all out.
