Event Details

Conflict is an English anarcho-punk band originally based in Eltham in South London. [1]  Formed
in 1981, the band's original line up consisted of: Colin Jerwood (vocals), Francisco 'Paco'
Carreno (drums), John (bass guitar), Steve (guitars), Pauline (vocals), Paul a.k.a. 'Nihilistic
Nobody' (visuals). [1]  Their first release was the EP "The House That Man Built" on Crass
Records. [1]  By the time they released their first album, It's Time to See Who's Who, on Corpus
Christi Records, Pauline and Paul had left the band. Conflict later set up its own Mortarhate
Records label, which put out releases by other artists including Hagar the Womb, Icons of
Filth, Lost Cherrees, The Apostles, and Stalag 17.
In 1983, Steve Ignorant, who was at the time a member of the band Crass, guested on the
band's pro-animal rights single "To A Nation of Animal Lovers". [1]  After the dissolution of Crass,
Ignorant later became second vocalist for Conflict on a semi-permanent basis. This followed a
1986 gig in Brixton, London, when he had joined the band on stage for a few numbers.
The band has always been outspoken regarding issues such as anarchism, animal rights,
the anti-war movement and in their support for the organisation Class War, and a number of their
gigs during the 1980s were followed by riots and disturbances. [

Current Line up :
Colin Jerwood (Vocals)
Stuart Meadows (Drums)
Gav King (Guitar)
Fiona Friel (Vocals)
Fran Fearon (Bass Guitar)

RYAN DAVIS

At the frayed bottom-edge of Indiana – just a moderate bike ride north of Louisville, Kentucky – multi-instrumentalist, artist
and songwriter Ryan Davis’ Americana-noir soundwaves have been emanating for years in a myriad of forms. As driving
force for the lauded State Champion, long-running member of Tropical Trash, administrator of the esoteric and excellent
Cropped Out festival, and lone proprietor of the Sophomore Lounge label, Davis lays down his first proper ‘solo’ release with
Dancing On The Edge – a rich, 2-LP tapestry of tunes that absolutely glows over seven expansive cuts. It’s a pure collage of
modernity and heritage.

After a period of introspection spent re-immersing himself in his drawing & painting practice, as well as his newfound
delvings into instrumental music, Davis’ sea change was imminent. “I wasn’t sure I would ever make another record of ‘song’
songs,” he says, “but last year I started writing again and it eventually took the shape of the record at hand. I worked
painstakingly hard on the material. It felt virtually impossible to complete for a bulk of the time I spent trying to enter into it,
but the process pulled me out of a strange place. I was eventually able to live inside of the songs enough to understand the
world within them – to ultimately help shape them into what I understood them to be.” Indeed, there’s a load of inspiration
captured in the grooves with Ryan’s unfiltered, folk-traditioned approach to poetic twists-of-tongue meeting head on with
sublime instrumentation.

Recorded in early 2023 with help both in-studio and remotely from peers like Joan Shelley, Catherine Irwin (Freakwater), Will
Lawrence (Felice Brothers, Gun Outfit, John Early), Jenny Rose (Giving Up), Christopher May (Mail the Horse), Elisabeth
Fuchsia (Footings, Bonnie “Prince” Billy), and Aaron Rosenblum (Son of Earth, Sapat), ‘Dancing on the Edge’ draws backup
perhaps primarily from Davis’ tight-knit drinking buddies-cum-cast of collaborators in Equipment Pointed Ankh (records on
Astral Editions, Bruit Direct Disques, Torn Light) – a five-headed hive-mind from which he drew impetus for his own foray into
more abstract and improvisational terrain these past few years under the Roadhouse alias. The results herein are
melancholic, gentle, minimal yet colorful in mood: a lilting highway accompaniment of crisp instrumentation and a relaxed,
amiable approach to vocals with rhapsodic wordsmithery. Fans of the aforementioned artists as well as those of Souled
American, David Berman, Kurt Vile and ‘Comes A Time’-era Neil should all easily find bounty.

While bare-boned and uncluttered in presentation, many of these pieces track over 6 minutes allowing a fair amount of
expansiveness. “Flashes of Orange” percolates with synthetic and organic percussion while Davis ruminates on how “a
steady drip falls from the ceiling to my forehead / a pitter-patter of my past mistakes” as a Cale-esque violin chatters through
impressionistic fields of pedal steel. It’s got an absence of recurring verses, replaced by an ever-unfolding story, words
spotlighted by tasteful flanging synths and lovely key shifts as finally the titular hook lifts its proceedings up into the clouds.
Other times the humor shines: tales of a jukebox that “only plays ‘Sultans of Swing’” in “Junk Drawer Heart,” ruminations like
“soon I’ll be seen as a problem for the neighbors / soon I’ll be seen as a trophy for the precinct” in “Free From the Guillotine,”
and of course the simple proclamation of “A Suitable Exit” being “I never asked to be born / I was only wondering where the
door went to.”

Tracked & mixed by Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets (Pawtucket, RI) and mastered for vinyl by Tohru Kotetsu at
Tokyo’s legendary JVC Mastering Center, Dancing On The Edge stares down into the navel of the American Experience
underbelly with a fair amount of outward reach. Besides the Kosmische-synth and violin stabs reaching into a European
element, stately organ swells build a musical bridge between 1969 Southern California and Felt’s latter era smooth moves,
with layers of intelligent gesture taking this well beyond the realm of its archetypal indie troubadour/acoustic songwriter tag.
Music and mint juleps never went down so well together.

“This is the sound of someone bearing a torch.” – Bill Callahan

“Davis’ talents are immense: vivid imagery and clever one-liners pulling epiphanies from the sacred, mundane, and profane.”

– Jon Blistein (Rolling Stone)

“On the latest and perhaps greatest notch in the storied songwriter’s belt, Ryan Davis is tipping his beer to a world in moral

and constitutional decline.” – Chad DePasquale (Aquarium Drunkard, Best of 2023)

“(His solo debut) Dancing on the Edge is singular and strong enough to put Davis in league with some of the very best
American songwriters of the past and present. He’s someone with the originality, wit and ambition to cut through the murk.

Someone worth paying attention to.” – Tyler Wilcox (Uncut)

“In Kurt Vonnegut’s debut novel, 1952’s Player Piano, the author delivered one of his defining ideas through the mouth of his
character Ed Finnerty: “Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center… Big, undreamed-of
things—the people on the edge see them first.” Seventy years on, this Kentucky-based songwriter traces life’s edges in the
same spirit, contemplating the human capacities for open-hearted euphoria and harrowing pain… In his investigation of the
human spirit, Davis has learned to embrace worry and wonder as companions for a restless heart. His place at the edge may
be perilous, precarious, and occasionally lonely, but it’s got one hell of a view.” – Allison Hussey (Pitchfork, *7.9 /Best

Rock Records of 2023 / Associate Editor Sam Sodomsky’s #2 Best Album of 2023)
“A treasure trove of brilliant songwriting and winding, unhurried alt-americana.” – Joe Graham (Americana UK)
“Like freewheeling meditations on the human condition, Davis’ songs tackle big issues (existential angst, disappointment,
loneliness, death) with sharp wit and gallows humor… I’ve been spinning Dancing on the Edge for weeks, and I still don’t feel
like I’ve fully plumbed its depths. Much like the best work of David Berman (who once called Davis “one of the best lyricists
going”), these songs will continue to reveal their layers for years to come.” – David Wilikofsky (Undercurrents)

Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band

Geno still enjoys cult status on the Soul, Blues, R&B and Northern Soul scenes today due to his unsurpassable reputation as a live performer. His magnetic stage presence and his love of performance (and of life!) combine to make him an inspiration and a joy to behold.

Possibly the best surviving front man from the 60’s, Geno has recently appeared as part of the Lord’s Taverners annual charity event at The Albert Hall.   Geno was also booked to play as the main act at The Royal Festival Hall to close Ray Davies’ Meltdown!

Geno went from being a humble M.P. in the U.S.A.F. in the 60’s, stationed over here in Norfolk, to having two of the biggest selling U.K. albums of the sixties with his famous Ram Jam Band. Amazingly both of these were live albums – a clear testament to Geno’s awesome and continuing ability as a live performer.

The 1980’s hit ‘Oh Geno!’ for Dexy’s Midnight Runners was about Geno Washington. Vocalist and composer Kevin Roland wrote the song about memories of Geno’s gigs in the 60’s as Geno ravaged club-land to the chants of Geno! Geno! Geno!

This tour will be a covid busting, ‘kick ass’, up-tempo, house rockin’, good time R&B show! Performing a blistering party set of sweet street soul and down and dirty blues to make the joint jump.

Geno has true pedigree in blues as well as soul, having released three blues albums to date (‘Loose Lips’, ‘Change Your Thoughts You Change Your Life’ and ‘What’s in The Pot?’)  but it ain’t the kind of blues to get you cryin’ in your beer… this is a house rockin’ party!

If you have not already booked Geno Washington for one of your events then do yourself a favour and call or email today and book a date. 

 

You wont be disappointed..

Rammlied: The ultimate Rammstein party and the UK’s number one tribute act

Experience the electrifying energy of Rammstein’s music with Rammlied, the UK’s #1 tribute act.

With 15 years of touring across the UK and Europe, Rammlied have perfected their live show, incorporating the iconic electro-metal sound and industrial look of the original Neue Deutsche Härte band. From classic hits like “Ich Will” and”Du Hast” to newer fan favourites like “Dicke Titten” and “Auslander”, Rammlied delivers an exhilarating experience that even the most die-hard Rammstein fans will appreciate. Plus, with highly detailed costumes, foam cannons, smoke effects, and of course, pyrotechnics, Rammlied stays true to the original band’s legendary stage production.

Rammlied are as close as you can get to the real deal, all from the comfort of your local venue. So join frontman Adam Lindemann and the rest of the boys for a night of laughter, dancing, and singing along to all your favourite tracks. Don’t miss out on the ultimate Rammstein party – check out Rammlied in a venue near you soon!

 

“As someone who has worked with the real Rammstein, this band are epic!”

– Sara Harding  TV Producer, Classic Rock Awards, Metal Hammer Golden Gods, Kerrang! TV, Scuzz and Headbangers Ball

 

“The guys in Rammlied provide an entertaining show by playing some of the songs you wish you could see Rammstein play. Who doesn’t want to boogie to ‘Mein Land’ or sing along to ‘Sonne’? Along with favourites such as ‘Links’ and ‘Pussy’… and yes they do have a pussy cannon (a bit on a smaller scale!!!) You can pretend that you have gone back in time before Rammstein became huge and have fun in smaller venues with other Rammstein fans. And you can tell the Rammlied guys love the band, love to perform and are a great UK tribute band. So if you need a Rammstein fix, or you can’t get to see the real thing… go see Rammlied because they would love to see you and honour one of the best bands in the World!”

Rachael Stewart – Admin for Rammstein UK (LIFAD)

 

“When you go to support a tribute band you expect them to be good, these guys are on another level, I have seen the real band live and you guys are exactly the same just on a smaller stage, one of the very best tributes I’ve ever seen…”

– Mac – InxsGB

ABOUT RAMMSTEIN

Rammstein are a German industrial metal band from Berlin, formed in 1994. The band consists of members Till Lindemann (lead vocals), Richard Z. Kruspe (lead guitar and backing vocals), Paul H. Landers (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Oliver “Ollie” Riedel (bass guitar), Christoph “Doom” Schneider (drums and electronic percussion) and Christian “Flake” Lorenz (keyboards).

Their songs are usually in German, but they have also performed songs entirely or partially in other languages such as English, Spanish, French and Russian. As of 2009, they have sold over 15 million records worldwide. Rammstein’s entire catalogue is published by Universal Music Group. Since their formation in 1994, Rammstein has had no changes in their band line-up nor have any members left the band.

Rammstein take their name indirectly from the German town of Ramstein-Miesenbach, the site of the flight show disaster on 28 August 1988. The band’s signature song, “Rammstein”, is a commemoration of the disaster. For a short period before the band became well known, they performed using the name “Rammstein-Flugschau” (literally meaning “Rammstein-Airshow”).

The majority of their songs are written in German, however, Rammstein has had success across the world.

Tragedy: All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyond

“Tragedy rocks sweet balls and can do no wrong! They are great fun!”

Tragedy Bio

Tragedy takes disco, soft-rock and pop classics, and completely reimagines them as glorious, red-hot heavy metal. They’re sure to get your head bangin’, your booty shakin’ – and put a smile on your face and your fist in the air.

Tragedy’s concept, while subversive and humorous, goes beyond what many have done in satirical music – they celebrate the soul of the original song, even while turning the soundscape on its head. The amps are cranked to eleven, but the emotion is not lost. You discover new meaning in songs that have been a part of your life for as long as you can remember. You laugh and cry. Dance and mosh. And feel newly connected to the disco-metal that was inside you all along.

Tragedy does not lazily rely on the concept or “the joke”. The band plunges deep – blazing musicianship, tantalizing riffs and stunning vocals. All except for Lance the towelboy. He’s just an idiot.

Born out of the impenetrable divide of Disco and Metal, this group of New York City brothers fearlessly obliterated the truce line that had been set in the great Disco/Metal Peace accord of 1977 when they seamlessly blended the two genres with their debut album, We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong – a collection of Bee Gees songs redone in a heavy metal treatment reminiscent of Judas Priest, Motley Crue and Guns N Roses. Since then, they have crisscrossed the globe with their spectacular live shows, storming across the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France and Switzerland. On subsequent full length albums, Humbled By Our Greatness, Death To False Disco Metal, The Solo Albums, The Joy of Sex, Tragedy Goes to the Movies and #1 Christmas Holiday Party Mix, Tragedy spread their glittered wings to take on non-Bee Gees classics from the disco era, soft rock anthems and party jams. In 2015, Tragedy broke the internet with a viral video featuring their take on You’re the One That I Want from the Grease soundtrack. In 2017, Tragedy’s video for Stayin’ Alive broke the internet once again. In 2019, two albums hit the NACC Heavy Top 10 charts.

In 2021, Tragedy signed a worldwide record deal with Napalm Records. The first album with Napalm was Disco Balls to the Wall, released date July 2021. It hit the top 10 in Hard Rock/Metal charts in Europe and the US. I Am Woman was released in March 2023, with six consecutive weeks on the NACC top 20.

Tragedy consistently tours North America, UK & continental Europe, having toured with Steel Panther, Nanowar of Steel and Electric Six. Tragedy has headlined festival stages of events such as SXSW (USA), CMJ (USA), Musikfest (USA), Bloodstock (UK), Rebellion (UK), Summer Breeze (Germany), Foudrock (France), Motocultor (France), ParkPop (Belgium), Glastonbudget (UK), Legends of Rock (UK), Belladrum (UK) and Hammerfest/Hard Rock Hell (UK).

Tragedy has changed the face of music forever. The world will never be the same.

Hot off the release of ‘The Noise’ EP (recorded by Billy Lunn of The Subways & mixed by Tommy from Feeder), Creature Creature hit the road for an extensive and first U.K. headline tour.

With some awesome special guests to be announced, come down for one incredible night!

A note from Scully (frontman/lyricist):
Creature Creature’s Bangarang Tour 24 – at ****ing last. After the pandemic annihilated our first ever tour which should have followed the release of our debut album ‘Two Finger Tantrum’ back in 2020, the damage caused took a while to recover from. We spent that wounded time gradually rebuilding, rebranding, reinvigorating and writing our best damn songs to date. In 2024, we are finally in a position to both release these songs to the masses in the form of ‘The Noise’ EP, and hit the road to show just how passionate we are in their live delivery. Brace yourselves, this year, months upon months of pent up passion will unleash itself on a stage near you. Let Creature Creature transport you to a place where the mainstream are quaking in their boots at the resurgence of alternative music as the driving force capturing the nation’s attention.

Scream your reasons and make them hear!

SCREAMING DEAD

Screaming Dead are a punk rock band from Cheltenham formed in 1980, who have often been characterized as “horror punk”. They released several singles and EPs with indie chart success, before splitting up in 1985. They reformed in 1997, disbanded again in 1999, and reformed with three original members in 2014. This line-up toured the East Coast of the USA in 2018.

Screaming Dead have been an inspiration to many bands in the Horror/Punk/Goth genre. Simply put, they are unique, genuine and full of energy, there really is nothing Dead about the Dead….

Event Details

Paul Andrews, a British singer better known by his stage name Paul Di’Anno, his nearly half-century-long career began explosively with Iron Maiden, when with the EP ‘The Soundhouse Tapes’, and the albums ‘Iron Maiden’ and ‘Killers ‘ forever cemented the foundations of heavy metal. With timeless hits like ‘Iron Maiden’, ‘Remember Tomorrow’, ‘Running Free’, ‘Phantom of the Opera’, ‘Killers’, ‘Wratchild’, Murders in the Rue Morgue’, ‘Purgatory’ etc., they influenced numerous musicians and bands and were responsible for the creation or development of many subgenres in metal music.

Paul is known as one of the most productive singers, who has a huge number of albums and other releases behind him, either as a solo artist or a member of bands such as Gogmagog, Di’Anno’s Battlezone, Praying Mantis, Killers, Rockfellas, Architects of Chaoz or Warhorse. In all his incarnations, Paul always knew how to find a way to the fans, with numerous hits, uncompromising singing, which is confirmed by his successful career and furious live shows around the world.

For the last eight years, Paul faced serious health problems that almost ended his career, but thanks to his loyal fans and his strong will to overcome the disease, Paul is on a big world tour again, and he recorded a new album with the group Warhorse. This icon of heavy metal with the heart of a punk rock rebel never spared himself in his life, but he always gave everything for music and fans, which is why they have followed him faithfully for almost fifty years.

Event Details

Credo were once described as “The best progressive rock band you’ve never heard of.”  With the the release of their third album – Against Reason – and the critical acclaim of  their last two releases – studio album Rhetoric and Live CD/DVD This is What We Do – Credo are certainly changing the ‘never heard of’ bit.  Now celebrating over 20 years recording and playing, it seems odd to say that Credo’s recent rise has been ‘meteoric’, but it is safe to say that Credo have now come to maturity, producing powerful, melodic and lyrically challenging rock music – on record and on stage – and have become one of the leading lights of the European progressive rock scene..

Early Days

Credo’s earliest roots can be traced back to the mid ‘70s when Tim Birrell (guitar) and Jim Murdoch (bass) took their first steps in the music business together in Scotland. Sadly, success eluded the talented duo and their original band split up and members dispersed across the UK.  

Many years later the pair decided to give it another go and recruited gifted lyricist and keyboard player Mick Stovold, followed by Paul Clark on drums.  Mark Colton eventually joined the, as yet un-named, band in 1992, having been spotted charismatically fronting cult legends Casual Affair.

The band played their first live show in Aldershot in April 1992 as Ad Hoc, temporarily changing their name to Chequered Past before ditching all-comers to settle on ‘Credo’ in 1993.

Field of Vision

Credo released their debut album – Field of Vision – in 1994, to some success in the UK and Neo Prog strongholds across Europe. The whole album was recorded and mixed in four days. Despite its acknowledged shortcomings, the songs were lyrically and melodically strong and well-received live. The original intention was just to sell the album at gigs on cassette, but UK label Cyclops approached the band, signed them up and released the album on CD shortly after.

Extensive touring followed, when suddenly Mick Stovold decided to leave the band. His replacement, Mike Varty(Landmarq, Shadowland, Janison Edge, Mick Pointer’s Marillion / Script For A Jesters Tour), marked the emergence of the Credo we hear today.

Rhetoric

The band immediately set to work on a second album in 1999, but following a horrific run of bad luck, ill health and assorted disasters, few people expected the new album to see the light of day; or even to see Credo on a stage again.  However, improved circumstances, a new drummer in Martin Meads and a lot of hard work and determination eventually resulted in Credo releasing their second album Rhetoric in 2005 – exactly 11 years to the day after their debut! The album was engineered and produced by Mike Varty; mixed by Mike and Karl Groom at Thin Ice Studio and released on the F2 label.

Rhetoric was exceptionally well-received, gaining universal praise, and is rightly viewed as a giant leap forward for the band from their debut CD.

What became the almost never-ending “Rhetoric On The Road” tour kicked off with the band playing their first gig in 6 years, bottom of the bill at a long-forgotten three band show in Reading. Mark’s well-documented health issues in particular led to the band and their loyal following all being very nervous about the return to the stage. But the gigs really showcased the new maturity of the music, together with Credo’s traditionally blistering live presence.

The widespread acclaim and numerous plaudits for Rhetoric that followed led to a string of prestigious gigs, awards and unexpected opportunities. In particular, Credo brought the house down in the USA at ROSFEST 2008 and PROGFARM in Holland, with a short tour with Blind Ego to follow.  

This Is What We Do

Finally, the Rhetoric Tour culminated in a fabulous show in Katowice, Poland that was released as a double live album and DVD – This is What We Do.  With this release, Credo really consolidated their reputation as an exciting and powerful live act.

Against Reason

Credo’s new album – Against Reason – was released on 11 April 2011. Once again produced by Mike Varty and released on the F2 label, the album is launched with extensive live dates in the UK and abroad.

Against Reason demonstrates a more intricate feel, lyrical challenges, fuller soundscapes and powerful melodies. The lead track from the album – Staring at the Sun – has already caused a stir amongst those who have had the chance to hear it.

2011 looks set to be a very exciting year for the band therefore and, once again, Credo are expecting to surprise, with a challenging and powerful 3rd album, a greater confidence and a cracking new live set.

In April 2012, drummer Martin Meads left the band and has been replaced by Gerald (Mully) Mulligan.

Conflict is an English anarcho-punk band originally based in Eltham in South London. [1]  Formed
in 1981, the band's original line up consisted of: Colin Jerwood (vocals), Francisco 'Paco'
Carreno (drums), John (bass guitar), Steve (guitars), Pauline (vocals), Paul a.k.a. 'Nihilistic
Nobody' (visuals). [1]  Their first release was the EP "The House That Man Built" on Crass
Records. [1]  By the time they released their first album, It's Time to See Who's Who, on Corpus
Christi Records, Pauline and Paul had left the band. Conflict later set up its own Mortarhate
Records label, which put out releases by other artists including Hagar the Womb, Icons of
Filth, Lost Cherrees, The Apostles, and Stalag 17.
In 1983, Steve Ignorant, who was at the time a member of the band Crass, guested on the
band's pro-animal rights single "To A Nation of Animal Lovers". [1]  After the dissolution of Crass,
Ignorant later became second vocalist for Conflict on a semi-permanent basis. This followed a
1986 gig in Brixton, London, when he had joined the band on stage for a few numbers.
The band has always been outspoken regarding issues such as anarchism, animal rights,
the anti-war movement and in their support for the organisation Class War, and a number of their
gigs during the 1980s were followed by riots and disturbances. [

RYAN DAVIS

At the frayed bottom-edge of Indiana – just a moderate bike ride north of Louisville, Kentucky – multi-instrumentalist, artist
and songwriter Ryan Davis’ Americana-noir soundwaves have been emanating for years in a myriad of forms. As driving
force for the lauded State Champion, long-running member of Tropical Trash, administrator of the esoteric and excellent
Cropped Out festival, and lone proprietor of the Sophomore Lounge label, Davis lays down his first proper ‘solo’ release with
Dancing On The Edge – a rich, 2-LP tapestry of tunes that absolutely glows over seven expansive cuts. It’s a pure collage of
modernity and heritage.

After a period of introspection spent re-immersing himself in his drawing & painting practice, as well as his newfound
delvings into instrumental music, Davis’ sea change was imminent. “I wasn’t sure I would ever make another record of ‘song’
songs,” he says, “but last year I started writing again and it eventually took the shape of the record at hand. I worked
painstakingly hard on the material. It felt virtually impossible to complete for a bulk of the time I spent trying to enter into it,
but the process pulled me out of a strange place. I was eventually able to live inside of the songs enough to understand the
world within them – to ultimately help shape them into what I understood them to be.” Indeed, there’s a load of inspiration
captured in the grooves with Ryan’s unfiltered, folk-traditioned approach to poetic twists-of-tongue meeting head on with
sublime instrumentation.

Recorded in early 2023 with help both in-studio and remotely from peers like Joan Shelley, Catherine Irwin (Freakwater), Will
Lawrence (Felice Brothers, Gun Outfit, John Early), Jenny Rose (Giving Up), Christopher May (Mail the Horse), Elisabeth
Fuchsia (Footings, Bonnie “Prince” Billy), and Aaron Rosenblum (Son of Earth, Sapat), ‘Dancing on the Edge’ draws backup
perhaps primarily from Davis’ tight-knit drinking buddies-cum-cast of collaborators in Equipment Pointed Ankh (records on
Astral Editions, Bruit Direct Disques, Torn Light) – a five-headed hive-mind from which he drew impetus for his own foray into
more abstract and improvisational terrain these past few years under the Roadhouse alias. The results herein are
melancholic, gentle, minimal yet colorful in mood: a lilting highway accompaniment of crisp instrumentation and a relaxed,
amiable approach to vocals with rhapsodic wordsmithery. Fans of the aforementioned artists as well as those of Souled
American, David Berman, Kurt Vile and ‘Comes A Time’-era Neil should all easily find bounty.

While bare-boned and uncluttered in presentation, many of these pieces track over 6 minutes allowing a fair amount of
expansiveness. “Flashes of Orange” percolates with synthetic and organic percussion while Davis ruminates on how “a
steady drip falls from the ceiling to my forehead / a pitter-patter of my past mistakes” as a Cale-esque violin chatters through
impressionistic fields of pedal steel. It’s got an absence of recurring verses, replaced by an ever-unfolding story, words
spotlighted by tasteful flanging synths and lovely key shifts as finally the titular hook lifts its proceedings up into the clouds.
Other times the humor shines: tales of a jukebox that “only plays ‘Sultans of Swing’” in “Junk Drawer Heart,” ruminations like
“soon I’ll be seen as a problem for the neighbors / soon I’ll be seen as a trophy for the precinct” in “Free From the Guillotine,”
and of course the simple proclamation of “A Suitable Exit” being “I never asked to be born / I was only wondering where the
door went to.”

Tracked & mixed by Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets (Pawtucket, RI) and mastered for vinyl by Tohru Kotetsu at
Tokyo’s legendary JVC Mastering Center, Dancing On The Edge stares down into the navel of the American Experience
underbelly with a fair amount of outward reach. Besides the Kosmische-synth and violin stabs reaching into a European
element, stately organ swells build a musical bridge between 1969 Southern California and Felt’s latter era smooth moves,
with layers of intelligent gesture taking this well beyond the realm of its archetypal indie troubadour/acoustic songwriter tag.
Music and mint juleps never went down so well together.

“This is the sound of someone bearing a torch.” – Bill Callahan

“Davis’ talents are immense: vivid imagery and clever one-liners pulling epiphanies from the sacred, mundane, and profane.”

– Jon Blistein (Rolling Stone)

“On the latest and perhaps greatest notch in the storied songwriter’s belt, Ryan Davis is tipping his beer to a world in moral

and constitutional decline.” – Chad DePasquale (Aquarium Drunkard, Best of 2023)

“(His solo debut) Dancing on the Edge is singular and strong enough to put Davis in league with some of the very best
American songwriters of the past and present. He’s someone with the originality, wit and ambition to cut through the murk.

Someone worth paying attention to.” – Tyler Wilcox (Uncut)

“In Kurt Vonnegut’s debut novel, 1952’s Player Piano, the author delivered one of his defining ideas through the mouth of his
character Ed Finnerty: “Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center… Big, undreamed-of
things—the people on the edge see them first.” Seventy years on, this Kentucky-based songwriter traces life’s edges in the
same spirit, contemplating the human capacities for open-hearted euphoria and harrowing pain… In his investigation of the
human spirit, Davis has learned to embrace worry and wonder as companions for a restless heart. His place at the edge may
be perilous, precarious, and occasionally lonely, but it’s got one hell of a view.” – Allison Hussey (Pitchfork, *7.9 /Best

Rock Records of 2023 / Associate Editor Sam Sodomsky’s #2 Best Album of 2023)
“A treasure trove of brilliant songwriting and winding, unhurried alt-americana.” – Joe Graham (Americana UK)
“Like freewheeling meditations on the human condition, Davis’ songs tackle big issues (existential angst, disappointment,
loneliness, death) with sharp wit and gallows humor… I’ve been spinning Dancing on the Edge for weeks, and I still don’t feel
like I’ve fully plumbed its depths. Much like the best work of David Berman (who once called Davis “one of the best lyricists
going”), these songs will continue to reveal their layers for years to come.” – David Wilikofsky (Undercurrents)
