Back to top.

Uniqulture road show 2014 is a game of two halves. The first half kicked off with an early doors packed house at The Alleycat on Tin Pan Alley and ended with an outdoors stage at People’s Day (30,000 people partying for peace and community) and a HQ for Rocklands at the new Art Music community hub, Number3London.

One thing though, these are QUALITY new artists developing into star potential close up where we can see the white of their ideas. They may not be TV advertised or day time play listed on national radio, but they deserve to be. With thanks, and more to them all, some of the next wave that are making things happen for UK composition, performance, marketability and potential futures.

16 Hole Boots, Aeromancy, Bad For Lazarus, Bad Wolf, Cat Bear Tree, CuT, Dana Jade, deux furieuses, Eighteen Nightmares At The Lux, elephants and castles, Kosmic Troubadour, Mourning Birds, Rhiannon The Nightmare, stella +, The Otherside.

What happens next? No idea. The second half kicks off at The Alleycat in Central London, again on 18th September - another yellow brick road to follow.

musictouristboard:

Just in time for the return of Doctor Who from his travels, a debut album of universal proportions sound tracking intergalactic battles with sky punching tunes by London trio Bad Wolf.

'False Conscience is a sci fi opera fusion of alternative rock n roll anthems which veer smoothly between Muse, Mansun, The Manics and Metallica (via beautiful balladary and choirs) like an out of control punk space ship day dreaming towards a crash.

Rather than me try to review it (in short, “magnificent”), you can hear and discover it for £0 (Free or pay what you want) http://ukbadwolf.bandcamp.com/album/false-conscience - also available on iTunes.

Images: (top) Edward Batchelor - bass, backing vocals, Simon Harris - guitar, vocals, piano, Mathias Upton-Hansen - drums, photographed by Peter Arboine. The London band have won an international underground following through previous releases, global stream shows and engaging live gigs. (bottom) the sky photographed through ultra red lens by Rupert Hitchcox.

This album release features a series of select live appearances over 2014 and 2015. Bad Wolf are a freaking JOY live.

Having made a huge impression with their debut appearance at Europe’s biggest new music festival, The Great Escape, Bad Wolf utterly stormed The Camden Crawl. "One of the highlights of this year" (Earwax Radio). "The band aren’t subtle, but it would be hard to find a room where people are having as much fun". (Call Of The Wyld). 

More shows being confirmed for Autumn onwards. Grab an album. Come along. Sing along. Dance along… and ROCK.

Zoom Starting from a dark place, then going forward therapeutically with music, has created an album’s worth of gentle songs, some tinted with an admiration of Ryan Adams. Delivering them with quiet intent, James Fisher is charming the pants off The House Of Wolf so much with his engaging “an audience with…” live charisma, that he has been invited back for a third time. If you would like to connect with a musician with so much more going on behind his eyes, this could be the show for you. https://twitter.com/fissicella Free Entry Highbury & Islington / Angel tube stations, many buses.

Zoom London scene queen, Jean Genie Graham (DJ, promoter, radio presenter, creator/host of Panda Power! events, an ArtBeat ring leader and formerly assistant to John Kennedy of Xfm Radio) has proved herself a star scout and music guru in her own right.
Her life is so immersed in a love of music, that JG radiates sun shine. Blessed by a wealth of influences and inspirations, her own compositions were always going to be good, but with her poetic words, melodically hooky  tunes and sweet voice, performing as Jean Genie’s Massive Hugs, she is so much more than that.
I am priviledged to have heard demos, and can’t wait for you to hear them to. In the mean time, get a good idea from live appearances. Keep an eye on https://www.facebook.com/jeangeniesmassivehugs
