Robyn Hitchcock

Fri 18 Sep • 8pm • Full £20 • Music

Proudly Presented by RMT Music

Robyn Hitchcock is one of England’s most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician’s musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock’s father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).

Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in ‘Storefront Hitchcock’, an in-concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.

Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as “paintings you can listen to”. His most recent album is self-titled and marks his 21st release as a solo artist. Out on April 21st 2017, the album is produced by Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs). Hitchcock describes it as an “ecstatic work of negativity with nary a dreary groove.” It has received rave reviews from UNCUT, Rolling Stone, Paste, Tidal and more.

“A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings…” – Rolling Stone


“These 10 gems slither, rock, roll, glide and shapeshift, coalescing around Hitchcock’s typically anxious, strained but striking and immediately identifiable vocals.” 
– American Songwriter

Stephen Bailey: Can’t Be Bothered

Wed 30 Sep • 7:30pm • Full £15 Concs £11 • Comedy

Proudly Presented by Phil McIntyre Live Ltd

“An outrageous, hilarious hour of comedy. Stephen Bailey is a superstar in the making”.  British Comedy Guide

Stephen Bailey has made a name for himself for being a little gossip – but this year he’s grown up and decided to have a conversation with you (but a funny one – he’s still Channel 5’s darling) – about everything that is going on in the world.
Host of Channel 5’s Celebs on the Farm and off of shows such as ITV’s Coronation Street, ITV2’s The Stand Up Sketch Show, BBC2’s Live at the Apollo & The Apprentice: You’re Fired, it’s been a very big year for Stephen, he’s even bought a new microwave.
He’s the best mate you want to chat to at the pub and he thinks the world has gone mad. This show is bit of storytelling, some inappropriate anecdotes and more sincerity than he’s ever dared have! What more do you want? He’s basically Holly Willoughby.
Trigger warning – he does NOT mention Brexit. The government don’t know what to say so he certainly doesn’t. Radio 4 listeners still welcome.

“Stephen’s show was hilarious from the first line, and for the whole performance I don’t think a single joke died”   Voice Magazine
★★★★★ – Voice Magazine, Fringe Guru, One4Review
★★★★ – Sunday Express, The Herald, The Skinny, Scotsgay

James Warren & His Mighty Miniature Orchestra

Sat 3 Oct • 8pm • Full £20 • Music

Way back in the 1960’s when love was all around and The Beatles were fab, a young James Warren took up the guitar.
His ‘silent admiration for the boys in the Beatle boots’ soon gave way to a band called Stackridge. The music was heady, wayward and like nothing else.
A dream came true when their 3rd album ‘The Man In The Bowler Hat’ was produced by none other than George Martin – his first production after the Fab Four.
Out of the smash hits of The Korgis through to the eclectic solo albums of James Warren, always with a strangely compelling mix of psychedelia, love songs and some other odd things(!) emerged the idea for a new show.
An amazing journey would need an amazing band! – WE HAVE ONE!

James Warren – Vocals/Acoustic guitar/bass,
Al Steele – Guitar/Vocals/Keyboards/Bass/Percussion,
Richard Mainwaring – Violin/French Horn/Vocals/Trumpet/Bass/Percussion
Pete Wilson -Keyboards/Clarinet/Sax/Vocals/Percussion.
As if that is not enough(!) we will be augmented by a fabulous 5-piece string section!

SO!… get your loons out, dust off your paisley shirt, and come take a trip that begins in the 60’s and ends up…
Well, wherever we end up, we hope to find you at the other end!
