The Georgian Theatre
Sat, 10/03/2012 - 20:00
£4 ADV / £6 OTD

In his other metal and rock musical lives (No School Reunion, Exit By Name, Skeat, Alsatian) Phil’s received a couple of KKKK reviews in Kerrang, had radio plays and played sessions for the likes of Marc Riley, Huw Stephens and Bob Fischer and supported everybody from Gallows to Biffy Clyro.

As a solo act Phil has shared stages with such luminaries as Frank Turner, Chris T-T, Franz Nicolay, Luke Leighfield, Jose Vanders and many more. His debut EP ‘So Much For The Aftershow’ picked up some lovely reviews. The loveliest from DieShellSuit Zine : “I guarantee you will find something about this record to fall in love with”. Influenced by a lifetime of rock, he also enjoys stuff like Willy Mason, Grandaddy and Graham Coxon.

He’s taking the stage in his spiritual home, The Georgian Theatre, with a full live rock ensemble to celebrate the release of his brand new full length album Hardcore Folklore. Everyone that comes to the gig gets a complimentary copy of the new CD, which goes on general sale the Monday after the show!

Support comes from:

LIFT - Regulars of the Georgian might remember Lift if they cast their minds back a couple of years. The original line up reunite to unleash their groove laden brand of funked up rock riffola for fans of Incubus et al.

LESSONS - East Cleveland punk rock with a twist. An anthemic blast, that’s just as much Cure or Springsteen as it is Against Me! Or Alkaline Trio.

VERY SPECIAL GUESTS! One more band is to be announced, watch this space for a hot new Teesside tip.

According to Radio 1's Bobby Friction,
Quote
"The Wolfmen have got pedigree, a full-on pedigree. I've been playing them on Radio 1 but – you know what? – f*** pedigree, they're an amazing band and they're going to take you somewhere else musically…"
Formed in 2005 by Marco Pirroni (Adam & The Ants, Sinead O'Connor) and Chris Constantinou (Jackieonassid, Adam Ant, Annabella Lwin) The Wolfmen have become a critically acclaimed force to be reckoned with.

Their debut album - Modernity Killed Every Night - was released in 2008 and described by Uncut as "Dense stuff… Extraordinarily overstated… an unholy mix…" and by MOJO as "Steeped in the space-age glam boogie of Bowie and T Rex with a bit of Iggy-in-Berlin thrown in… infernally catchy…" Lead track "Cecilie" was A-listed on NME Radio for seven weeks in a row.

The Wolfmen's second album – Married To The Eiffel Tower – was released early 2011 and produced by Courtney-Taylor-Taylor (frontman/songwriter with The Dandy Warhols) and Jacob Portrait (Queens Of The Stone Age, Foo Fighters). The first results of The Wolfmen's second album sessions are previewed with a limited edition single release of Jackie, is it my Birthday", a duet with Sinead O'Connor, which won massive radio support from the likes of Dermot O'Leary (BBC Radio 2), Lauren Laverne (6Music) and a host more.

Alongside their own work, the band is known for some surprising collaborations with artists ranging from Lou Reed to Daler Mehndi, the biggest selling artist Indian in music history. They've also covered Screaming Jay Hawkins' I Put A Spell On You with Primal Scream for an Alexander McQueen catwalk show and co-written a few tracks on Sinead O'Connor's new album.

Support comes from Adam and the Ants tribute act Ligotage.

Please note that tickets for this event are booked through the promoters ticket agent and therefore booking transactions vary to our own. Please check all details before booking

Hyde & Beast is somewhat of a supergroup, not in that awful SuperHeavy way (shame on you Mick Jagger) but in the marvellous way that features two drummers from the North East; Dave Hyde (Hyde) from Futureheads and Neil Bassett (Beast) from Golden Virgins, to be exact.

Together they have made a magnificent record by accident, Slow Down, with Hyde on vocals and both Hyde & Beast writing, recording, producing and mixing the album themselves, resulting in a very special project born out of a labour of love and a wonderful detour from the pair’s usual musical output.

The two drummers recorded at Beast’s Sunderland studio at the rate of one song a day, with Field Music’s David Brewis and solo artist Lucas Renney also providing some beautiful bass and guitar on two tracks Lord, Send For Me’ and ‘You Will Be Lonely.

A sprawling, gentle psychedelic meander, Slow Down harks back to a more experimental approach to songwriting, with some of the songs seemingly writing themselves as they recorded live in the studio. Inspired by the music Hyde & Beast love listening to, Slow Down recalls a golden age of mainstream pop meeting the sonic adventurism and kaleidoscopic music from the late 60s and early 70s, with more than a nod to the greats of that era Captain Beefheart, Velvet Underground and T Rex.

After a summer of festivals, gigs, and mass hype the band perform on at the Georgian Theatre for the first time, we can't wait. Don't miss it.

Friday 30th September 2011
Doors 8pm £8 adv £10 door


Acoustic songsmith Benjamin Francis Leftwich is heading out on an extensive U.K tour this autumn amidst a whirlwind of critical acclaim, and is kicking off the 24-date marathon right here at The Georgian Theatre.

Leftwich has been the talk of the radio in recent months with Jo Whiley, Dermot O’Leary, Zane Lowe and Greg James all pouring their support behind the young York native.

In the last year he has released four EP’s; A Million Miles Out led to his performance at Jo Whiley’s Little Noise Sessions at the Union Chapel. His track Atlas Hands was also named as one of Whiley’s tracks of 2010.

Further accolades were heaped on Leftwich following the release of second EP Pictures. Zane Lowe named the title track the Hottest Record In The World and it also became DJ Greg James’ Record Of The Week.

In April he filled Noah & The Whale’s support slot on their UK tour, casuing even more hype, and he will shortly be performing at a number of festivals, including the Camden Crawl, Dot-To-Dot, Bestival and Glastonbury. He blew crowds at Intro Festival away with his floaty, melancholic vocals and deft fingerpicking; if you missed out then don't make the same mistake again!

Critically acclaimed folk singer Emmy The Great will be heading to Stockton’s The Georgian Theatre this September as she heads across the U.K with her latest album, Virtue, out on 13 June.

Emmy, real name Emma-Lee Moss, was initially a member of the indie folk group Lightspeed Champion, performing as their vocalist for a brief period in 2007 alongside Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine).

Her debut album, First Love, was released in 2009 and garnered her mass critical acclaim, as well as many comparisons to Laura Marling; comparisons that still stick today.

Her new offering, Virtue, was written and recorded under very different circumstances to her first. It began as a series of stories Emmy embarked on after her engagement to an atheist, but took on a very different shape when he left her for the church.

‘She’s so wry, she’s practically Wry-an Adams.’ 8/10, Vice on Virtue

Noted for her evocative and thought-provoking lyrics, and her inventive way with rhyme, her live performances have bags of vulnerability and sass in equal measures.

‘Moss’ acid confessionals have always felt more interesting than Marling’s folk fairytales, and so it proves here.’ 4/5, Uncut on Virtue
