Tom Grennan

Delighted to be welcoming Tom Grennan to Riverside Newcastle!

There are two major things that – in some strange, unlikely way – paved Tom Grennan’s way into music: The Kooks’ 2006 single ‘Seaside’, and an incident that left him hospitalised for several days.

Born and raised in Bedford, the 21-year- old’s childhood was a fairly typical one. He played football, went to school, got a moped at 16 and “was cruising with that for a bit.” Aside from an MP3 player his mate’s brother loaded up with grime, music was never a big part of his life growing up. Until, that is, he had a little too much to drink at a party, and demanded that everyone listen to him performing ‘Seaside’ a cappella. “I was just going around like, ‘Oi, listen to me…’ just being an annoying guy,” he says now – but his performance, bolstered though it may have been by a generous dose of Dutch-courage, was clearly impressive. His friends, unaware before that night that he could even hold a tune, roped him into joining their A Level band, where he discovered an untapped knack for performance.

Without that, he says, there’s no way he would have ended up performing. But it was something altogether more traumatic that prompted Grennan to turn to songwriting.

At the age of 18, a group of strangers attacked him on the street. He’s inclined to play the incident off casually – “just wrong place wrong time I think” – but it left its mark, and not just from the metal plates and screws he’ll have in his jaw for the rest of his life. “When that happened,” he recalls, “I was in a mad dark place. It hurt me mentally. I had this build-up of emotions.” So he started writing about it. Influenced by the likes of Ray Charles, Kendrick Lamar and Amy Winehouse, he poured his trauma, his pent-up pain and frustration, into songs, “and then I just found I could escape from it. I just loved doing it, it felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Now, anytime I feel anything, I write about it.”

The first thing he wrote was Old Songs, which has a cheeky, Jamie T-esque charm to its syncopated storytelling. But it was Something In The Water, the title track from his debut EP, that really showcased Grennan’s gritty, soulful vocals. After a scat-like, staccato verse, it gradually builds up to something rapturous: “I can see the light now, as I’m stepping out the door / Well there’s something in the water, calling my name.” The song, he says, “was like coming out of the dark. I felt sorry for myself for a minute, but I’ve got to just pick myself up.”

With Something In The Water’s success, the ball was well and truly rolling. Next came a Chase & Status collaboration, All Goes Wrong, which might never have seen the light of day were it not for Grennan’s sheer force of will. After a fruitful writing session, the electronic duo were unsure whether or not to release the resulting song.

Grennan, with the unabashed self-belief only a 21-year- old could have, told them, “Boys, this is a banger.” He was right, and a spot on the BBC’s Sound of 2017 songlist shortly followed. Now, there’s no stopping him.

“You only live life once, so you got to make every bit of it count,” he says with an infectious enthusiasm. “I want to put a stamp on my life, and I want to put a stamp on the world. I don't want to be here to be forgotten. [My music is] fiery, it’s real life and it’s passionate. There’s no bullshit.” The name of his forthcoming EP, Release The Brakes, could hardly be more apt. “I’m full throttle now. My foot is on the accelerator and I’m not braking. I ain’t stopping. Simple.

Dragonforce

DragonForce are an English power metal band from London. Formed in 1999, the group is known for its long and fast guitar solos, fantasy-based lyrics, and electronic sounds in their music to add to their retro video game-influenced sound. Guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman are the only two remaining founding members in the group since ZP Theart’s departure. Marc Hudson was announced as Theart’s replacement in March 2011.

Youngblood Brass Band

Youngblood Brass Band flouts convention in an ecstatic, raucous, incendiary fashion, taking the form of a New Orleans brass band and morphing it into a punked-out hip-hop behemoth of groove and purpose.

The ten-member ensemble has been unleashing their crash course in genre-bending on stages worldwide since 2000. What other band can claim the honor of having their music spun by DJs like Questlove (of The Roots), working with hip-hop luminaries like Talib Kweli, having their original compositions performed by student marching bands and jazz ensembles around the globe, and still not be out of place at a punk festival? What other band brings together the ostensibly disparate worlds of the trombone geek and the backpack b-boy?

Youngblood has headlined countless tours in the States and abroad, selling out dates in over 20 countries. Their festival résumé reads like a list of the heaviest music events in the world: Roskilde, Glastonbury, Lowlands, Pukkelpop, SXSW, CMJ, North Sea Jazz, WOMAD…ad infinitum. White-hot live shows secured the band’s status as an incredible group to witness, whether in an intimate club setting or in front of thousands on a festival stage.

Living Colour

During the 1980s, rock had become completely segregated and predictable, the opposite of the late ’60s/early ’70s, when such musically and ethnically varied artists as Jimi Hendrix, Sly & the Family Stone, and Santana ruled the Earth. But bands such as New York’s Living Colour helped break down the doors by the end of the ’80s, leading to a much more open-minded musical landscape that would eventually pave the way for future bands (Rage Against the Machine, Sevendust, etc.).

Stone Foundation

The musical bond between Neil Sheasby and Neil Jones is as concrete as their band name: Stone Foundation. It needed to be to survive over a decade of trial, error and frequent returns to the drawing board before finding the right direction, one that’s finally led them to Street Rituals, an album that is both rainbow’s end to their journey so far and starting pistol for new adventures to come. Produced by and featuring Paul Weller, its ten tracks realise Stone Foundation’s vision of a vibrant modern UK soul band, the kind who can play with the best of the genre’s American legends including Bettye LaVette and Stax’s William Bell while never losing their own distinctly British identity – the sound of Memphis, via the Midlands. “It’s the same mod ethic as the first Style Council album which had a lot of guests,” says Sheasby, “or Massive Attack’s Blue Lines. That’s sort of the mind-set we have. Making soul music without being a retro pastiche but bringing something new to the party.” “We’re obviously influenced by the music we grew up with,” adds Jones, “but we want to take that music forward. Really, it’s reminding people what modernism is actually about. Creating something for now.”

The two Neils came to soul music from very different directions. Sheasby hit adolescence as the early 80s mod revival reached critical mass, heeding the call of Dexys and The Jam to follow their muse back to Stax, Motown and the infinite riches of northern soul. Jones took a more scenic route, a fan of old skool hip hop whose detective work to decipher the many samples and breakbeats eventually led him to a similar record collection. Despite growing up on each other’s doorstep “along the A5 corridor in Warwickshire”, the Neils didn’t meet until the late 90s at a gig in London, both playing in different bands on the same bill. When their respective groups split, bassist Sheasby asked vocalist Jones if he’d be interested in writing songs together. “That was nearly 20 years ago,” notes Sheasby. “From that point forth we’ve never looked back.”

The Tom Robinson Band

Delighted to be welcoming the fantastic Tom Robinson and his Band to Riverside Newcastle

Born in Cambridge in 1950, Tom Robinson first became known in the late 1970s as a musician and LGBT activist with the Tom Robinson Band (TRB) who were early supporters of Rock Against Racism and Amnesty International. In 1977 their Top 5 debut release 2-4-6-8 Motorway became one of the landmark singles of the UK punk era. Other hits included Glad To Be Gay, Up Against The Wall and the band’s debut album Power In The Darkness which went gold in the UK and Japan.

As a solo artist Tom had further solo hits in 1983 with War Baby and Atmospherics: Listen To The Radio, and co-wrote songs with Peter Gabriel, Elton John and Dan Hartman. His 14th studio album Only The Now was released in 2015 featuring guests such as Billy Bragg, John Grant and Ian McKellen. Recent festival dates include Latitude, Green Man and headlining the Left Field stage at Glastonbury 2016.

As a radio broadcaster Tom hosts three shows a week on BBC Radio 6 Music, is a member of the Ivor Novello Awards committee and in 2016 was awarded a fellowship of LIPA to recognition his support for new music artists through BBC Introducing.

To mark the 40th anniversary of 2-4-6-8 Motorway in October 2017, Tom will be performing performing his entire Power In The Darkness album on tour in the UK. His first two shows shows at London’s legendary 100 Club sold out within 4 hours – a third date has just been added. In 2017 Tom’s incendiary live quartet features Faithless drummer Andy Treacey, Richard Ashcroft guitarist Adam Phillips and keyboard virtuoso Jim Simmons plus Tom himself on bass and lead vocals.

Mutation

What do you do when everything goes to shit? Not normal, mundane, day-to-day shit, but AAAARRRGGGHHHH KILL EVERYBODY AND START WITH ME shit. Depression, anxiety, misery, torment, whatever you want to call it. It needs a name and it needs a soundtrack. Welcome to Mutation III: Dark Black.

Mutation began as the deformed brainchild of Ginger Wildheart, one of British rock’s official living legends and the man behind The Wildhearts, Hey! Hello! and all manner of wildly tuneful and uplifting rock’n’roll shenanigans. This band is different, however. This band is the manifestation of all the horrible stuff that goes on in Ginger’s head. As a result, the first two Mutation albums were laborious in their creation but mind-blowing to all those who heard the: 2013’s ‘The Frankenstein Effect’ was like a Wildhearts album recorded by PCP-guzzling baboons, while ‘Error 500’ was a relentless barrage of squawking, screeching, glitched-to-fuck wrongness. Both featured an ignominious cast of characters that Ginger assembled to facilitate his sonic meltdown, with everyone from Napalm Death and Japanoise icon Merzbow to The Fall’s Mark E. Smith chipping in some wonky nuggets of aural sickness. But even the most extreme moments on the first two Mutation records sound like David Essex’s Hold Me Close compared to the foul, seething, mentally shattered insanity of ‘Mutation III: Dark Black’. A collaboration between Ginger and Scott Lee Andrews of Welsh bass-punk wretches Exit International, /this/ time the madness is very, very real.

Wire

Wire were formed by Colin Newman (guitar & vocals), Graham
Lewis (bass & vocals), Bruce Gilbert (guitar) and Robert Grey
(drums). The band subjected themselves to a lengthy period of
intense, 12 hour a day rehearsals, honing their – admittedly basic –
musical skills until razor sharp. What emerged was a version of
rock shorn of all ornamentation and show business. Newman and
Gilbert’s chord sequences often took unexpected turns, Graham
Lewis’s unique lyrics were vivid but oblique and Grey’s drumming
was minimal and metronomic.

They may have arrived at the same time as punk and drawn on its
initial burst of energy, however Wire’s forward looking attitude
meant they always stood apart from it. In fact, Wire could easily
lay claim to having been the very first post-punk band. And yet, it’s
equally true to say they could be viewed as part of the British
tradition of left field art-school bands which includes Roxy Music
and The Pink Floyd.

Wire played their debut proper at London’s Roxy club on April 1st
1977. The band were immediately picked up by the prodigious
EMI offshoot label Harvest, and their debut album ‘Pink Flag’ was
released in the December of the same year. The album was a
collection of 21 songs, many of them sharp, abrasive and
extremely short. In fact, six of them didn’t even make the one
minute mark. Yet many of the tracks, such as ‘12XU’ and ‘Ex-Lion
Tamer’, are now rightly regarded as classics.

‘Pink Flag’ not only received near universal acclaim, it would go on
to be cited as a major influence by a panoramic range of artists,
including Big Black, My Bloody Valentine, Blur, Henry Rollins, Joy
Division and R.E.M.

Akala : Visions Tour

@ Riverside Newcastle Thursday November 9th,

This show is presented as part of the ‘Freedom City 2017’ celebrations, to Mark the 50th anniversary of Dr Martin Luther King’s Doctorate from Newcastle University.

On 28th July 2017 Akala released his highly anticipated ‘VISIONS’, a Comic Book EP. This project is a first for Akala & a first for Hip-Hop tackling the book’s message & themes in musical form, pushing the boundaries of Art & Music.

Speaking of the book, when previewed at MCM Comic Con in London last October, he said ‘Visions is a semi-autobiographical magical realist story which forms part of a new comic book series, written entirely in verse. This all-encompassing multimedia historical tale explores higher states of consciousness, charting the evolution of the art of rapping from West Africa’s Griot traditions, through Jazz, Blues & Reggae up to the modern day’

With deeply stirring soundscape & hard-hitting beats produced by James Legget, (aka Nearly Native) & Akala with additional production from his long term collaborator Lavar Bullard, the ‘Visions’ EP sets Akala’s visceral trademark flow to moody strings & timeless rhythms, breaking new ground for his unique approach to Hip-Hop: theatrical long-form storytelling – a signpost to were Akala is taking the Hip-Hop genre…

‘Visions’ is available now on all digital platforms. It’s release will be followed by a string of Summer festivals & a UK tour where fans & newcomers alike will be treated to the full live performance / visual presentation of the ‘Visions’ Comic Book EP as well as songs from his decade-spanning back catalogue.

The first single to be taken from the album is, ‘Nothing For You, and is available now. Lead by a bouncy bass line and cutting guitars, the track is classic Milburn – and is sure to please the fans.. Listen to the single here.

Last year the band returned to play a number of high profile shows in Sheffield and a subsequent sold out UK tour. Those comeback gigs served to wet the appetite not only of the fans but the band themselves, who had no doubt about taking on a 12,000 capacity, hometown show at Don Valley Bowl in June this year.

Recorded and produced by Bill Ryder Jones of The Coral at Parr Street Studios, the album is packed full of highlights, with each track telling its own unique story in the Milburn tale. Previous single ‘Take Me Home’ evokes a guttural punch, whilst title track ‘Time’ has an almost cinematic, widescreen feel to it.

More than two decades after its release, their debut single, “The Murder Of Liddle Towers”, was included in Mojo magazine’s list of the best punk rock singles of all time.

With 2016 marking the U.K. Subs’ 40th anniversary; this legendary punk band continues to represent the true spirit of punk rock. Inspired by the Damned at the birth of British Punk, the now equally legendary Charlie Harper formed the Subs out of his then R&B outfit The Marauders, late in 1976.

Motionless in White

An industrial city situated in Northeastern Pennsylvania, you could say Scranton quietly prides itself on a tried-and-true Rust Belt blue-collar work ethic.

For their fourth full-length album and first for Roadrunner Records Graveyard Shift, Motionless In White—Chris Motionless [Vocals], Ricky Horror [Guitar], Ryan Sitkowski [Guitar], Ghost [Bass], and Vinny Mauro [Drums]—dug into the roots of their hometown’s pervasive attitude.

“We’re a band that came out of the small town blue-collar spirit,” affirms Chris. “We put ten years into growing this and working hard to do what we love the most. We look forward to putting in another ten. Both the area we come from and the fan base brought us to this point. Graveyard Shift is all about that work ethic. It’s been instilled in us. Early on, we realized if you give the time and effort to chase a dream, it’s possible to achieve it by the sheer amount of drive and passion you have.”
