Booker T is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, a Grammy lifetime achievement winner and his 1962 single, with the MGs, ‘Green Onions’ won Greatest Single of All Time (popmatters.com). But this makes him sound like he’s past his prime – something which is definitely not the case. His relevance definitely endures today, as proven by his most recent Grammy award for the album Potato Hole, 2010’s best instrumental album.

Born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1944, Booker T. Jones was named after the civil rights leader Booker T. Washington. But unlike Washington whose middle name was Taliaferro, Jones’ middle name is famously just ‘T’. A multi-instrumentalist prodigy, he entered the professional world of music aged just 16 when he played baritone sax on Stax Record’s first hit ‘Cause I Love You. In 1962 he formed Booker T and the MGs, and with his group, who hit the charts in their first year, he recorded the classics Green Onions, Hang Em High, Time is Tight, Melting Pot, and, familiar to all UK cricket fans, Soul Limbo.

The MGs went their separate ways at the end of the 70s (before later reforming) and the 80s saw Booker T strike out on his own. He instantly hit the charts with 1981 single I Want You and successfully turned his hand to producing for artists such as Bill Withers and Willie Nelson. Booker T also lent his keyboard magic to recordings by Neil Young and Ray Charles.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992 and presented with his Grammy Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2007, the last few years have seen some of Booker T’s best work. The critically and popularly acclaimed Potato Hole featured Neil Young, returning a favour, and this year’s The Road to Memphis will include collaborations with some of today’s funkiest artists including the Roots and Sharon Jones.

Now 66, Booker T clearly still has a lot of life in him and his appearance at ARC is something of a coup for the Stockton venue, as this will be Booker's only non-festival UK date this year! Don't miss it.

7:30pm - £6 advance // £8 on the door - 18+

Confident Slough quartet BROTHER blasted their way into 2011 with a massive bang by adorning the front cover of the first NME of the new year!

Describing themselves as 'grit-pop', they recently kicked off their set at a sold-out show at The Flowerpot in London with the now infamous phrase:

"Are you ready for the future of music? If not, leave now."

Their confidence (arrogance?) is admirable and also justified because their rather brilliant indie guitar sounds are like the best bits of Oasis, The Bluetones, Kasabian and Gaslight Anthem all rolled into one.

The lads have already signed a rather tasty record deal with the legendary Geffen imprint, making them label mates of Guns 'n' Roses, The Cure and Aerosmith to name but a few.

Their debut album "Famous First Words", which was produced by Stephen Street (Blur, The Smiths), is released in July and features live favourites including Darling Buds Of May, New Years Day and Still Here.

Fresh from touring with The Streets, massive things are expected of Brother in 2011 so do yourself a favour and believe the hype!

Advance tickets are still available from We Got Tickets and See Tickets for £6, or it'll be £8 on the door.




"It is safe to say that if Britpop is going to make a revival then Brother are the band to start it!" Zane Lowe (Radio 1)

"The swagger of a band who sense their time is coming" The Guardian

"Amazing…brilliant…wicked…" Huw Stephens (Radio 1)

The Hitchers + Little Pink Polliwog + No School Reunion
Thu 21 Apr, 8pm, £6
ARC, Stockton-on-Tees

Tickets: http://www.arconline.co.uk/detail.php?id=2364

Influenced by the Stray Cats, Eddie Cochran, Descendents and The Cramps, Teesside heroes The Hitchers are back with their first Stockton show for years.

Their awesome and unique sound combines the infectious buzz of punk rock with the fun and style of the 1950s rock 'n' roll years. Rich, Mike and Greg have toured all over the world - including on the world famous Vans Warped Tour in the USA - and have received a plethora of plaudits from the likes of Rock Sound, Kerrang and BBC Radio 1.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to catch one of Teesside's finest ever bands back on home soil.

Support comes from the much loved and recently reunited Little Pink Polliwog and ex-Skeat boys No School Reunion, who'll be celebrating their 10th anniversary with the release of their brand new EP at this show.

Right Said Fred - Night Of The Living Fred
Fri 6 May, 8pm, £15
ARC, Stockton-on-Tees

Tickets: http://www.arconline.co.uk/detail.php?id=2355

There isn't a person on this planet who hasn't heard I'm Too Sexy. Fact! Well, maybe not a fact, but you know what we mean. That single hit the number 1 spot in over thirty countries and picked up an Ivor Novello Award before the likes of Deeply Dippy, Don't Talk Just Kiss, Stick It Out, You're My Mate and Stand Up For The Champions helped the band shift over twenty million records all over the world.

This is not only a unique opportunity to hear Right Said Fred perform a stripped down set of their greatest hits, but also a rare chance to enjoy some frank and honest anecdotes from the brothers Fairbrass.

An unmissable event for fans of the band and music lovers in general.

An evening with Frank Turner
+ Franz Nicolay and Ben Marwood
Monday 9th May, ARC in Stockton
7:30pm - All Ages - £16


Frank Turner’s meteoric rise to success continues this year with news of two NME award nominations (including for the impressive Best Solo Artist alongside Paul Weller, Florence And The Machine, Laura Marling and Kanye West), festival appearances (including headlining a stage at Download) and a fourth studio album scheduled for release this summer.

The past twelve months has seen Frank reach new dizzying heights of success that has included a support slot for Green Day at the vast Wembley Stadium in June; scooping the prestigious ‘Spirit Of Independence’ Kerrang! Award in August and headlining a sold out Brixton Academy show back in December; as well as spending the year touring extensively not just in the UK, Europe and America but also as far a field as New Zealand, Australia and China.

With the release of his new album and a summer chock full of gigs and festival appearances, 2011 is shaping up very nicely indeed and Frank’s path to total world domination will continue apace.

Support comes from ex-Hold Steady man Franz Nicolay and hotly tipped singer-songwriter Ben Marwood.

The Black Atlantic are an incredible acoustic indie pop band from Groningen, the Netherlands. Their music is an introspective and intimate affair of melancholy, folk influenced acoustic pop, relying heavily on vocal harmonies and melody on soft strummed guitars, piano and minimal percussion. Comparisons to Bon Iver are perhaps a tad lazy, but also quite accurate!

In recent times The Black Atlantic have toured all over the world, sharing stages with such luminaries as Midlake, Nada Surf, Patrick Watson and Saturday Looks Good to Me along the way. Their stunning debut album, entitled “Reverence for Fallen Trees”, was recorded over the fall of 2008 in a log cabin in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York and has already been downloaded over 100,000 times. Blimey.


Rock fact #23532: The band's singer Geert was previously the frontman of legendary hardcore band Shai Hulud, having replaced Chad Gilbert when he left to focus on New Found Glory.

Support comes from Hartlepool musicians collective The Woven Project with their wonderful lo-fi acoustic folk and former DARTZ! frontman William K.J. Anderson whose solo stuff is sure to please fans of Nick Drake, Woody Guthrie and Iron & Wine.


As always, Uncle Albert's superstar resident DJ Ste Foy will be on hand to soundtrack your evening and there'll be some great drinks promos to help give you that Saturday feeling. Oh, and why not make a night of it? Advance Metropolis Empire Q Jumpers on sale.

We're over the moon to welcome THE BRUTE CHORUS back to Uncle Alberts. One of our favourite live bands, they've been getting some great press recently with both Q Radio and Kerrang Radio awarding them single of the week accolades! Not to mention Steve Lamacq and Marc Riley showing them some love on 6 Music and Huw Stephens giving them a few spins on Radio 1. Nice!

They've been effortlessly combining garage, blues and folk music with a scatology of Biblical stories, nursery rhymes and fairy tales since 2008 and their enormously accessible sound has managed to escape any generalised genre pigeon-holing, instead they’ve been carving out their own genuine, word-of-mouth buzz from their breathtaking live shows.

Mixing up elements of rockabilly, post-punk, skiffle and dirty garage rock 'n' roll, their sound is very much their own but at a push, sits somewhere between Gogol Bordello and Nick Cave.

"Dirty delinquent Stomp" - NME

"Frantic flamboyance" - The Fly


Support comes from Teesside's own RUSSELL & THE WOLVES.

"Excellent Pixies-style Surf rockers" - Artrocker

"I've never seen someone play guitar with a shoe before!!" - Bob Log III

"The Jesus and Mary Chain meets The White Stripes" - Blues Matters Magazine


Guest DJ Nicky Peacock will be warming up your ears before and between the bands and then, as always, superstar resident DJ Ste Foy will be on hand to soundtrack your evening and we'll have some great drinks promos as well as those precious Metropolis Empire q jumpers.

Uncle Albert's proudly presents the the Roxy post-Christmas bash:

Roxy @ Uncle Alberts in Middlesbrough
Tuesday 28th December 2010
8:30pm - £2 or £1nus/flyer


After leaving audiences across the North-East breathless with their intense live shows, "Indie Ibiza" trio Polarsets have raised the bar with recent single 'Morning', which is an indie-dance-floor smash hit that has already been championed by Paul Oakenfold and Erick Morillo. One of the stars of the recent Constellations festivel in Leeds, they're hotly tipped for 2011 so don't miss 'em!


Support comes from Maccabees-esque indie-rockers Said The Gramophone and brand new Teesside supergroup Collectors Club, who's demo captured our imagination with it's catchy blend of Vampire Weekend-esque rhythms and Bombay Bicycle Club-esque melodies. Splendid stuff!

As always, the drinks will be cheap as chips (and yeah, we mean CHEAP!) and resident DJ Gemma Kate will be on hand to get her hits out - expect anything from The XX to Roxy Music to Foals to Fleetwood Mac to Bombay Bicycle Club to David Bowie to Interpol to The Doors to Yeasayer to Rolling Stones to Vampire Weekend to MIA to Blondie... you get the idea.

Joining them will be mysterious Glaswegian dubstep/post-rock/pop four piece Kid Adrift and the wonderful Flashguns, who blew us all away when they played at Uncle Alberts back in October.

10:30pm : £6 : 18+

Advance tickets: http://www.seetickets.com/Event/FRANKIE-THE-HEARTSTRINGS/The-Empire/527757

The 5 members that make up Frankie And The Heartstrings have had pop flowing through their veins from the off, their ability to fire out fantastic pop singles and wow audiences is testament to that. From lead singer Frankie Francis regularly winning dance competitions from the age of sixteen, to drummer Dave Harper’s aspirations towards pop stardom ‘I told my careers advisor I wanted to be a pop star’, their drive to perform is almost overwhelming.

Their first London headline show took place at the 100 Club in June 2010, where a capacity crowd hung on every note the band blasted out to their growing army of fans, with the NME and Guardian joining in on the frenzied furore. One of the successes of their live show could be contributed to the simple policy, as stated by Frankie  "Never rely on a crowd, a gig isn’t their job, it’s ours", but it is equally likely that the ferociously catchy melodies and high velocity hooks play a large part too.

One of the stars of Glastonbury, BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend, Latitude, Evolution, Leeds/Reading and every other festival under last Summer's sun, they've toured with such luminaries as The Futureheads, Florence & The Machine, The Drums and Edwyn Collins to name but a few and their debut album is released on February 21st via PopSex Ltd & Wichita Records - home of Bloc Party, The Cribs, Les Savy Fav and Los Campesinos amongst others.

A live band not to be missed!

"Making indie special again" - NME

“Their stomping sound – which is surely scientifically impossible to dislike – dips into Dexys circa Searching for the Young Soul Rebels, mid-period Clash, 60s pop, Orange Juice, northern soul, romance and literature without loitering anywhere.”The Guardian
“There are some people who seem to have come into existence only to be in a band. Like the wonderous dandy lovechild of Morrisey and Jarvis. Frankie Francis is most definitely in this number”The Fly

Big Scary Monsters Christmas Tour
Tall Ships + Tangled Hair + Antlez
Uncle Alberts in Middlesbrough
Saturday 11th December 2010
8:30pm - 18+

Since their stunning performance for us back in August, Tall Ships have toured all over Europe with such luminaries as Minus The Bear, 65 Days Of Static and Maps & Atlases. Phwoar.

They're an instrument swapping, loop pedal abusing machine who wield so many moves you won’t know where to look! The trio fuse the energy and stylings of Battles and Foals with influences as wide ranging as Why?, Prince and Explosions In The Sky to form a dynamic musical marvel, full of excitement and intricacies.


Joining Tall Ships on this year's BSM Christmas Tour are the wonderful Tangled Hair. Featuring ex-members of the much missed Colour, Tangled Hair have a free EP available to download from Bandcamp and you should really go and do that right now:


We've roped Hartlepool math-pop sensations ANTLEZ into opening the gig up so make sure you get down early to see 'em.

"Lifeless are the most exciting new UK Thrash band of 2009, now how’s that for a quote? Seriously, they play crossover with heavy leanings towards metal, and possess a significant Slayer edge both in riffs as well as solos: imagine SSS, only better! 9/10" Terrorizer

They’ve toured the length and breadth of the UK on numerous occasions in exchange for petrol money and a few cans (if they were lucky!) playing alongside SSS, Rolo Tomassi, F.K.U., Pulled Apart By Horses, The Plight, Hospital Of Death, Sylosis and Fighting With Wire to name but a few.

"Fired up on radioactive beer and rampaging party zombies, Lifeless play punked-up, crossover thrash that rampages on like a shopper-mowing Robo-centurion with a half life of its own." Metal Hammer

In September, Mainland Europe was subjected to 100mph drumming and lightning fast riffs as Nixon, Pacey, Paul, Ben and Gordon got in the van and drove 4000 miles in 10 days, wowing audiences across Belgium, France, Germany and The Netherlands.

"Pitching their sound somewhere between Slayer and old-school Agnostic Front, they have more in common with the founding fathers of the genre than the increasingly wanky and sanitised modern offerings, but to hear this kind of thing done well is a joy. 8/10" Subba Cultcha

Notable gigs include an in-store performance at Zavvi (RIP) in Manchester for SSS’s album launch party, opening for Youth of Today and The Spermbirds in Hasselt, Belgium and Middlesbrough Music Live Festival, where Nixon, Pacey, Ben, Paul and Gordon attempted to set a world record for the most stage dives in one set. Unfortunately the independent adjudicator from Guinness didn’t show up, so there’ll be no place for Lifeless in the Book of Records just yet...

"Bolstered by some mean shredding and seriously lairy lyrics, Lifeless deliver their goods with snot-splattered energy. This is the ideal soundtrack to a circle pit - get in! KKK" Kerrang!


Main support comes from Anchor Fast Anchor who will be unleashing their usual unstoppable cacophony of chaos sitting somewhere between Dinosaur Jr and My Blood Valentine.


Kicking things off will be Control with their Minor Threat/Striking Distance-esque hardcore.


After the gig, head over to Sumo at The Empire for Drunk In Hell, Möse and Diet Pills:


Uncle Albert's proudly presents the Roxy Christmas special featuring:

Roxy @ Uncle Alberts in Middlesbrough
Tuesday 21st December 2010
10pm - £4 or £2nus/flyer

Razmataz Lorry Excitement is Kev Dosdale, guitarist with the North East's greatest band (Field Music) and also Zane Lowe's favourite Geordie electro-punk-pioneer! As seen at Leeds/Reading and alongside the likes of Klaxons, Shy Child and Crystal Castle, RLE is sure to please fans of Hot Chip, Daft Punk and LCD Soundsytem.

"The weekend's most unlikely triumph belongs to a Geordie calling himself Razmataz Lorry Excitement. His bonkers dance beats and Prince falsetto pull a large crowd in a contest otherwise carred by Las Vegas and Glasvegas." The Guardian


Polinski is a new project for Paul Wolinski, programmer of 65daysofstatic. It’s a return to his beat-driven sampling and synth days, trying to meld loud, scruffy, analogue fuzziness with sparkly melodies. Like the walls of sound made by Oneohtrix Point Never and Fuck Buttons with added beats, or the old school melodies of Underworld and Orbital coated in warm distortion. Switswoo.

This will be only Polinski's second ever live date - and his first on UK soil! Don't miss it.


Plus loads of festive treats from team Roxy including awesome drinks promos and resident DJ Gemma Kate on the decks.
