Plummie Racket and The Dicemen
Friday 6 April, 8:30 pm
Plummie Racket has been gigging in and around town here there and every where for the last 8 years landing support slots with Space, Sham 69, Twisted Wheel, Inspiral Carpets and many more taking him on tours of Germany for the last 3 years armed with only an acoustic.
Now with a full band line up the sound has been transformed, records have been made and are ready to gig making this not a show to be missed.).
Band Members include :
Jordan O’Sullivan – Guitar
Thomas Macca McCarthy – Drums
Luke Wride – Bass
Samuel Widzy – Keys
High energy psychedelic synth-punk, the ruthlessly creative and creatively ruthless Martyrials [MARR•TEER•EELS] produce an undeniably explosive blend of all killer, no filler Rock and Roll.
Punk ethics meet space-delay driven psychedelia like if the Ramones had synthesizers and jammed with Slaves or if System of a Down met the B-52’s. Formed in 2015 and releasing their second studio album this year, the exciting live shows of the Martyrials are not something to be missed.
“OUTSTANDING! one of the best gigs i’ve been to in years” – Rich Craven, Founder of Swindon Shuffle
“WHAT PUNK WOULD HAVE SOUNDED LIKE IF IT BURST ONTO THE SCENE AFTER THE ADVENT OF AFFORDABLE SYNTHESIZERS” – Dave Franklin, The Swindonian.
KID CALICO AND THE ASTRAL PONIES
Kid Calico & the Astral Ponies are a band that exists, but shouldn’t be real.
They make a joyous racket, wet and grubby from the musical ground from which it bubbles, brushed off and thrown to the wind with delightful abandon. Stalking in the shadows of the E street band, stumbling sideways into a drunken Dr John shuffle whilst copying Jonathan Richman meeting Tom Waits, they lose themselves in a stoned Floydian blur one minute, then tip coins in the hat of The Band busking on (English suburban) Desolation Row the next. Eclectic doesn’t begin to cover it.
Always there, holding the reins, the sartorial wonderment of Kid Calico, politely guiding his charges and balancing their unbridled enthusiasm with classic songwriting and singalong melodies to die for.
This is a band for people seeking foot tapping thrills, heart tugging anthems, daring circus ditties and Mexican waltzes proven to cause ankle injuries. Kid Calico & the Astral Ponies. Somewhat implausibly, they do exist, but only you can prove they are real.
