Robyn Hitchcock

Fri 17 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

James Warren & His Mighty Miniature Orchestra

Sat 3 Jul • 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!

HP Lovecraft: Gallery of Screams

Sat 15 May • 8pm • Full £16 Concs £14 • Professional Theatre

Two tales of Eldritch Horror
Adapted and Performed by R M Lloyd Parry

“Any magazine-cover hack can splash paint around and call it a ‘Witches’ Sabbath or ‘Portrait of the Devil.’ But only a great painter can make it scare you…”

In these two tales of terror by HP Lovecraft, the American master of the weird tale, an art critic and a philosopher get pushed to very edge of sanity by the images and sounds they confront.

Pickman’s Model introduces us to the uncannily brilliant work of Richard Upton Pickman – a genius shunned by the artistic establishment because of his sickening canvases. It is paired here with The Music of Eric Zann, an eerie and baffling tale that Lovecraft himself counted as a personal favourite.

Robert Lloyd Parry has spent the last 14 years enacting The M R James Project, a series of one-man shows based on classic English ghost stories. Here he crosses the Atlantic to pay tribute to James’s exact contemporary – a stranger, sadder man but one with an arguably even greater talent for bringing nightmares to life.

“Utterly mesmerizing” The Washington Post on The M R James Project
