Jim Ghedi

Brudenell & HPBC present…

Jim Ghedi
+ Redwood River Band
+ The Walker

Tuesday 27th February | Doors 7.30pm | Hyde Park Book Club
Tickets £5.00 advance from See Tickets

––

Born in Sheffield before moving around various parts of the British Isles and then settling in Moss Valley - an abandoned and forgotten area on the edgelands of South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire - it makes perfect sense that 26 year old Jim Ghedi’s music feels both fluidly transient yet also deeply rooted to a sense of place.

His current solo work explores connections to the natural environments and heritage of rural communities and landscapes across the British Isles, including the village in which he grew up. Drawing musically from some genre-crossing ideas combining 6 & 12 string finger-style guitar composition, orchestral arrangments and traditional folk song.. 

Nature permeates through his second solo album ‘A Hymn For Ancient Land’ (released this winter to much praise on Basin Rock) He will be heading out on tour throughout the year with his band, good friends Neal Heppleston on Double Bass and Dbh on Violin, very much anticipating a busy year ahead.

Samsara Soundscapes

We are proud to present a film screening of ‘Samsara’. Voted the world’s most beautiful film by Cinefix.

At the heart of Leeds creative scene, we will be hosting a celebration of iconic filmmaking, fused with a live soundtrack providing the soundscapes to create a unique and mesmerising experience. 
Set in a mega cosy atmosphere of bean bags, fairy lights and FREE popcorn, it's bound to be magical. 

With music from:

They have been selected as ‘Jazz North’s introducing artist 2017’, are on Lancaster Jazz Festival’s artist development programme and have received funding from Help Musicians UK to promote females in the improvised/jazz scene. 
Recently they have played live on Chapel Fm radio station, supported Matthew Bourne, Edgar Jones, Roller Trio and Elliott Galvin. They thrive on challenging both their own and their audiences perceptions, pushing each performance to new levels.

Sourpuss
With influences from atmospheric jungle of the 90s, DJ and producer, sourpuss creates deep, atmospheric tracks that blend percussive breaks with deep pads and chords to create music that is as reflective as it is progressive. His debut single released last summer received appraisal from the jungle scene with support from artists such as Om Unit and Dexta. Sourpuss will be digging deep in his record collection and showing his influences to accompany the film with a meditative set of krautrock, balearic, ambient and down tempo music.

Futuresound Events & Dance to the Radio Presents: 
LELO + Special Guests

LELO is a young solo artist from Leeds, UK. Intent on delivering heartfelt vocal performances laid on top of densely layered tangled guitar and synths, LELO’s songs address topics familiar to all of us, but are perhaps left somewhat overlooked. 

Taking influence from 90's greats such as Slowdive, LELO marries ethereal soundscapes with intricate, choppy drum beats and quirky hooks similar to that of modern day indie-rock outfits such as Real Estate. 

LELO’s debut EP, ‘DIFFERENT TYPES OF LOVE’, was self-released in July 2017 to critical acclaim and has several new releases lined up for 2018 and is hitting the road with a full live band of friends and guest musicians.

Manuka Hive

Manuka Hive - The debut hometown show

A glittery explosion carved out in the depths of Leeds. A cosmic symphony of rock and roll blasted through every available string.

FFO: Tom Petty, Phil Lynott, Fleetwood Mac, Father John Misty, David Bowie, Billy Corgan, The Smashing Pumpkins.

BAD LUNGS

Formed in Islington’s New Rose pub – a bar named after UK punk pioneers The Damned’s 1976 single – the five piece are just as influenced by West Coasts psyche, classic rock and atmospheric sound groups like The 13th Floor Elevators, and The Seeds as English songwriters. It’s a very fuzzy garage rock reverb sound, but with an English twist – especially lyrically.

FloodHounds

From British Indie to raw American Blues, "gloriously guitar-heavy," and rumbling with subterranean rock; FloodHounds are a swirling explosion of bluesy fire, tearing its way through the UK’s packed and sweaty music venues. Sheffield 3-piece FloodHounds’ hits you like a British Black Keys or White Stripes, inspired by the likes of Band of Skulls, or Drenge with just a hint of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

Latenight Honeymoon

Dreamy London quartet creating swooning and sonic dream pop with iridescent guitars.

FFO: Arcade Fire, The Verve

Mother Lover

Since forming in 2017, Mother Lover have been in the studio working on their debut EP, with their first single set for release in April 2018.

Katie Von Schleicher

Katie Von Schleicher

PPY & Brudenell presents...

Katie Von Schleicher

Katie Von Schleicher’s Bleaksploitation was an accident, years in the making. While interning at Ba Da Bing Records, owner Ben Goldberg offered that she make a cassette for the label to release. It could be anything, demos or a live performance, but she took it a bit more seriously than Goldberg intended. The result was her first self-produced and engineered effort, a strange, hazy, pop-laden tape. Doing her own press under a pseudonym and referring to it as an “album,” Von Schleicher garnered enough attention for Bleaksploitation to see it released on vinyl in Spring 2016.

On her debut full-length, Von Schleicher strikes again on the magic that comes from her warped and uncompromising sound. Shitty Hits channels the bright, sunny radio burners of the 1970’s, songs you drive to, carefree, and songs you can cry to.

From start to finish, Shitty Hits confronts feelings of isolation and powerlessness. Opener ‘The Image’ (named for Daniel Boorstein’s The Image: A Guide to Pseudo-events in America) finds Von Schleicher at bottom, struggling for perspective: “The image runs and runs together / I’m glancing at it on a screen / I can’t tell you how I feel / It runs and runs together / I’m standing beneath it.” Overheated vocals, distorted drums and unwieldy guitars push back, unrelenting. Von Schleicher fights to get out of her head the way Springsteen tries beating it out of town. Shitty Hits doesn’t tackle grandiosity, but mediocrity; the struggle of being deeply flawed and unmistakably human.

Conjuring the home recorded sound of Paul McCartney’s McCartney or Jeff Buckley’s Sketches For My Sweetheart The Drunk, Shitty Hits was created on a tape machine at Von Schleicher’s childhood home in Maryland. Where Bleaksploitation courted a kind of sonic nihilism, Shitty Hits shows confidence and growth. It ends in unflinching self-realization, as Von Schleicher sings “Where is everything I hold to be true? / When you feel like you’re a door they’re knocking on / Or worse, that no one passes through / Do I hold my life? / No one’s gonna sell it back / Over my head.” Words form the questions, answers are given in sound.

“Katie Von Schleicher’s debut tackles feelings of mediocrity and turns them into something grand instead” – Loud & Quiet: 8/10

“Brilliant debut from wry US writer.” – Uncut 8 / 10

OMNI + Special Guests

Interior + Tally Ho Promotions Presents: 

Omni

Framed from within the relentless heatwave of Atlanta, Georgia, Omni cuts through the oppressive humidity of the gilded southern capital with a cool and breezy combo of lo-fi nonchalance. In paying homage to post-punk forebears like Pylon, Wire and Devo, Omni exploits a succinct and focused sound in their 2016 debut. Strung taut with wiry guitar and incisive rhythms, their approach is not without plenty of sneaky, danceable melodies to round off the hard angles. Indeed, 'Deluxe' represents a mission statement to cruise a steady though lavish wave of disenchantment like it was 1979.

'Multi-Task’ is an improvement to that surefire philosophy. Where guitarist Frankie Broyles once kept his noodling perfectly strict and razor-sharp, he now fans and stretches out, allowing his silvery tone to breathe in a way that summons the art and funk of Roxy Music, or occasionally even the cheekiness of Sparks. Vocalist and bassist Philip Frobos continues to ebb and flow with his crisp and oft-detouring beats. Philip's stony voice retains a detached stoicism with hints of spirit sneaking in here and there. On the road for a solid year and left to finish the record in between tours, Omni ratchets the fidelity higher as the punk gets more 'proto' and less ‘post'—all while the decade melts away - ex post facto, into the late 60s and early 70s. Welcome in the eccentricities, guys.

With 'Multi-task', Omni capitalizes on the indulgences of ‘Deluxe’ melodically, rythmically and in their aesthetic indifference. In doing so, they never sound ostentatious during any facet of their evolution. It’s with that expert handling of subtlety that the power trio—recently bolstered by the addition of ex-Warehouse drummer Doug Bleichner—has managed so much of its charm in its brief history. Luxuriate in two-minute track after three-minute track of covert hooks that lock into subconsciouses and keep the record spinning, front to back to front again.

Tickets onsale.

Overture Presents: Ninety-Nine

First off, big thanks to Andrew Kemp and everyone who came down for the party in December, you’re all bloody ace.

Next up we’re delighted to welcome James Bevan and Josh Nesbitt from Ninety Nine to lay down the sizzlers.

Founded in 2015, the Ninety Nine crew are no strangers to inducing some seriously good fun round these parts. With their residency at the 212, occasional takeovers at Sheaf Street, a fantastic boat party and the force that is the Yarden Party at Duke Studios, you’ll often find the south east end of town dancing to their beat.

Carried by top class residents who really know their onions, a big part of their ethos is about giving a platform to local talent. Add some larger bookings such as Mark E, Ewan Pearson and Psychemagik to the mix and you’re left with a pretty impressive spectrum. They’re just a cracking set of chaps, really.

As their page proudly proclaims, expect SWEAT, DANCE-RELATED INJURIES, EPIPHANY-INDUCING DISCO and a REET GOOD TIME.

We hope your transition into 2018 has been a smooth one!
