David Guetta

Marking his fifth-consecutive year as an Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Club headliner, David Guetta will continue his reign on Monday’s slot from 27 June until 29 August.

Levellers announce November & December UK Tour 2016

Levellers

Brighton folk punk band Levellers will play their classic album in full plus other hits on a mammoth UK tour supported by Ferocious Dog to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of their second full-length, and now classic, album.

 

Their platinum-selling 1991 album Levelling The Land features the hit singles One Way, 15 Years and Far From Home plus The Game, Liberty Song, Sell Out, Another Man’s Cause, Riverflow, Boatman and the incendiary Battle Of The Beanfield.

During the summer of 1991 Levelling The Land redefined the UK’s musical landscape. Levellers provided the soundtrack for a society fed up with the twin evils of Thatcherite politics, and the post-80’s, pre-grunge musical wasteland.

She Drew The Gun – Set for UK Tour, Announce New LP ‘Memories Of The Future’

She Drew The Gun - Set for UK Tour, Announce New LP 'Memories Of The Future'

She Drew The Gun

Skeleton Key Records are pleased to announce the release of ‘Memories of The Future’. The superb debut LP from She Drew The Gun.

The debut draws lyrical inspiration from Louisa Roach’s (aka She Drew The Gun) own real life experiences. Whilst the chugged guitars and a laid back percussive tempo glide effortlessly through a chorus of glacial blues tinged understated and soulful sublime offerings. Self-scrutiny and drunken reflection, are just a few of threads in the rich tapestry and myriad of intertwining themes found within She Drew The Gun’s music. That isn’t afraid to explore or veer outside the norm with a Sci-Fi protest song and dreamy love song straight out of a Kurt Vonnegut novel amongst the gems on the album.

The album was recorded at Parr Street studios...
