Huggelig Sunday

We are excited to be back with the 3rd Hyggelig Sunday which as usual includes amazing acts:

Sophie Worsley, a singer/songwriter reaching the end of her studies at Leeds College of Music, which allows her to really focus on her writing and performing. After three years of playing with her current band, her album is well on its way. She is a melodist and lyricist first and formost, and she will be gifting us with songs of her new album performed solo in an intimate atmosphere.

Dariush Kanani who's voice evokes shades of John Mayer, Paul Simon, James Taylor and Michael Jackson, his sound is deeply soulful. A searching musician, his songs masterfully combine his influences of pop, R&B, soul, jazz and folk into a style that is truly his own.
Facebook | Bandcamp

Henry Bateman is a musician and songwriter from Gloucestershire, currently studying at the acclaimed Leeds College of Music. Never one to be in a ‘mould’, Henry’s style has been influenced by a range of original guitarists/singer/songwriters – ranging from Michael Hedges to Peter Gabriel, Randy Newman and James Taylor.

May Day Movies: workers' film day

Join Film Fringe for the launch of their new film series #WAWLeeds - What About Work, Leeds?

Drop in to Hyde Park Book Club anytime from 2pm to 10pm, for back to back relaxed screenings and coffee / beers / discussion / veggie hot dogs / solidarity. 

Below are the start times for the four rare films. They come from Argentina, Italy and the United States, all have a labour connection and have been programmed in collaboration with the Bristol Radical Film Festival

2ish: FaSinPat (Fábrica sin patrón)
(Danièle Incalcaterra, Argentina, 2004, 67min, documentary

Insightful documentary about FaSinPat, a worker-controlled ceramic tile factory in the southern Argentine province of Neuquén, one of the most prominent in the worker-syndicalist movement of Argentina.

3.30pm: On the Art of War
(Luca Bellino & Silvia Luzi, Italy/USA, 2012, 85min, documentary)

Four workers occupy the top of an 80 foot crane inside INNSE, the last active factory in Milan. Living in only a few square meters for 8 days and at 40° they must be organised and prepared, but they have a strategy and they know their enemy.

5.30pm: Harlan County USA
(Barbara Kopple, USA, 1976, 105min, documentary)

Oscar-winning documentary about the 1973 "Brookside Strike", a bitterly violent miners' strike at the Eastover Mining Company in Kentucky.

7.30pm: Matewan
(John Sayles, USA, 1987, 142min, fiction)

Tragically overlooked, this wonderful film celebrates 1920s labor organising "with the sweetness and simplicity of an Appalachian ballad" . Filmed in the coal country of West Virginia, it festures a very young Will Oldham too.

Schoolhouse [Live]
---------------------------
Making the jawn over the pennines from MCR we're delighted to be hosting Schoolhouse. With releases on Tombed Visions Records they have made excellent impressions on folk such as The Wire, Boomkat and beyond

“Textually, it resembles the dense minimalism of Pauline Oliveros or Makoto Kawabata’s most cosmic excursions, but the inclusion of rhythm adds an intoxicating sense of urgency and drama. Even by dizzying standards of the prolific underground of greater manchester, the heavy textures and inundated tendrils of this music are hard to resist.”
- The Wire

Following recent gigs with the likes of Pharmakon and Factory Floor we aresuper duper excited to welcome them to Leeds for a live set, CANNY WAIT!

Here's an album which floated into Blackest Ever Black's top 25 releases of 2015:
https://schoolhouse.bandcamp.com/album/herd

---------------------------
CARLOS [Live]
---------------------------
Also playing a live set, we have local sound maker going by the name CARLOS. Using various equipment CARLOS makes immensely beautiful and intruiging soundscapes, one of which can be heard at the start of our 4th podcast - such an incredible peice I felt far too rude to mix in and out of, so just ended up running it all the way.


Really really excited to see them live and u shud be 2!!!!

EABHAL join us in Leeds as part of their spring tour. Support TBC.

“Full of energy and bold ideas but firmly grounded in the Scottish & Gaelic tradition, Eabhal are one of Scotland's brightest up and coming bands that continue to evolve our music.” - Angus Lyon (Blazin’ Fiddles)

"These guys can charm the birds from the trees or raise the roof at the drop of a hat! Expect Scottish tradition but with a drive and a passion that will astonish and lift even a cheap dram to high spirits!" - Allen Valley's Folk Festival

Eabhal are hitting the road again for Spring and are bringing their Hebridean-born, highly charged music down to Newcastle for a night of absolute craic! 

Playing folk music from Scotland, Ireland, Europe and further, alongside self-penned tunes, they have a unique sound that demonstrates their collective musical ethos. The band have been working with singer and 'Dansi' frontman Wilf Stone on a new set of soulful, primal and socially-conscious material.

The Fanny Collective Presents: Synergy

Synergy: the combined power of a group of people when working together that is greater than the total power achieved by each working separately.

Feminism is forever developing and changing and we believe that the only way in which we will ever achieve true gender equality is to stand together. Synergy is about teamwork and creating together.

Women have been working together since the beginning on time whether that be for protesting for equality, making art/textiles together and supporting one another. “Synergy” as an exhibition hopes to promote the unity of all all self-identifying women and the power of working together.

We invite you all to come and join us at The Hyde Park Book Club to celebrate women and all things womanly in an exhibition showcasing feminist work from our own resident Fanny Collective members plus many other talented artists.

Max Lilleyman

"Based in Wakefield and inspired by the likes of; Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Lloyd Cole, Mark Kozelek, Jason Molina, sad sappy country songs and dreamy atmosphere; Max makes songs that blend atmospheric Americana with fuzzy dreamscapes and a hint (or heap) of melancholia

Max's new material is a blend of acoustic folk & country with the dreamy, fuzzed-out atmospheres of dream-pop, slowcore and ambient music."
Facebook  | MusicGlue | SoundCloud

Dave Lynch

Dave Lynch is a Leeds based singer/songwriter who combines rock, folk and instrumental new age in a unique, emotional acoustic set. He draws influence from various acts from Andy McKee to Tool and Alice in Chains. He has been playing in and around Leeds for around ten years, and is soon releasing a solo album.
Facebook | SoundCloud

Nida

"Nida Mozuraite is a self taught musician who likes to compose her own material and perform. 

Her influences come from many genres as she has an open minded taste. Although, what really fuels her passion for acoustic song writing is hard rock music, such as Shinedown."

Thomas Truax

American Thomas Truax is one of the most imaginative characters on the pop music fringe. He travels the world performing with his evolving "band" of surreal self-made Harry Partch-esque instruments including a motorized drum machine made of bike wheels called 'Mother Superior' and a pimped-up Dr. Seuss-ian Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as guitar. UNCUT magazine says "Truax is shaping up nicely as one of the great rock eccentrics" while Splendid magazine called him "one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you've never heard of...an exceptional talent, unique and resistant to comparison."

"It's a mutual exchange of blood, bone, wood and metal, most of which is home grown. If you leave a Truax show without smiling somewhere in your body, you're fucked." -Richard Hawley

"When he performs, it is a spectacle - the originality and seeming impossibility of what he does is much of the appeal." -The Guardian

Firstly, thanks to everyone who came to our last party. It was probably our busiest yet and the music from Ranyue, Chris and Alex was stellar.

Next up, we’re delighted to have another trio of local favourites coming to play. Fresh from studying, Will Lowe (Brudenell Groove) has his feet firmly back in Leeds and will no doubt be marking his return in style. We also have Tom O’Rourke (Plato’s Disco) back for another seductive session, and jazzman Sam Toone (Sonic Sahara) to complete the workout!

We're expecting many twists and turns for this night as each DJ has a very unqiue and expansive taste in music and we're not sure where they could take us.
