Tom Hingley band – Free Liverpool In-store gig for RSD // ‘Beggar’s Hand’ Charity Single

Tom Hingley band - Free Liverpool In-store gig for RSD // 'Beggar's Hand' Charity Single

Tom Hingley band

Tom Hingley shot to fame as lead singer of revered Manchester sixties keyboard-led heroes Inspiral Carpets, before turning his attention to a solo career that began with 2000’s Keep Britain Tidy, and has subsequently involved much-lauded releases such as Thames Valley Delta Blues (2009) and Paper (2013). Add to this his work with The Lovers – including two LPs, an EP and a single – and it’s fair to say few can match his oeuvre for variety.

Alongside his comrades in arms – Ste Pearce (Dirty Saint), and Malcolm Law (Silent Partners) – the Tom Hingley band are once again on a punk, rock ‘n’ roll and soul tip, veering from Bowie’s Tin Machine era to The Jimi Hendrix Experience read through the eyes of Frank Spencer. Or something like that.

From its beginnings in 20...

Meilyr Jones LIVE @ Liverpool Studio 2 – 29th April

Meilyr Jones LIVE @ Liverpool Studio 2 - 29th April

Meilyr Jones

MEILYR JONES (ex-Race Horses) is thrilled to release his wonderful debut solo record: 2013, which will be available 19th March. 

“I conceived of the record as a compilation of myself, over the period of a year,” says Meilyr Jones. “As an anthology, a collection of my songs and of what happened to me in that year.” The year in question was 2013, a curious time in Jones’s life, when the weeks were scored by loss and pleasure and revelation, and when he made a short but transformative trip to Rome, drawn by a fascination with sculpture and Byron and Berlioz, and by a desire “to see something new and different.”

In Italy he lived differently. “I’d go out every day, walking for hours, go to churches, just to see paintings,” he says...
