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

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!
