Matt Berry & The Maypoles

They are back, after last December’s fantastic performance Matt Berry and the Maypoles are heading back to Riverside Newcastle once more!

Witty, theatrical and musically spellbinding; Berry’s live shows are always an invigorating journey. Tripping into a world that’s both beautiful and surreal, this latest tour will see Berry deftly navigate an eclectic back catalogue – including tracks from albums Witchazel and Kill The Wolf, and recently reissued Opium. And then there’s the inevitable surprises, be that unique renditions of classic songs, freeform jam sessions, extra special guests, orchestral stage invasions … anything is possible in the world of Matt Berry.

“As a frontman, Berry is laconic but focused, and unstarrily generous”
Classic Rock Mag

“Mind blowing”

“Best gig we’ve been

Black Grape

Alias Kid

The Happy Mondays fell apart in 1992, leaving most observers to assume that it was the end for Shaun Ryder, as he struggled to recover from his numerous drug addictions. No one could have ever predicted that three years later, a relatively fit and healthy Shaun would return to the top of the charts, with a new band.

Black Grape’s debut album, It’s Great When You’re Straight…Yeah, is a surreal, funky, profane, and perversely joyous album, overflowing with casual eclecticism and giddy humor. Ryder’s sound was reinvigorated, creating bizarre rhymes that tie together junk culture, drug lingo, literary references, and utter nonsense. One of Britain’s best wordsmiths Shaun Ryder’s lyrics have always been delightfully freewheeling, and full of multicolored imagery. Teaming up with Kermit (ex Ruthless Rap Assassins) he now had a rapper on board with equal skills to bounce off. Even better, the music has deep grooves and catchy pop hooks that come straight out of left field. From the blaring harmonica of the triumphant ‘Reverend Black Grape’ and the trippy sitars of ‘In the Name of the Father’ to the seedy, rolling ‘Shake Your Money’ and the stinging guitars of ‘Tramazi Parti.”

Black Grape has always been the simmering stalking horse, waiting in the wings, for a time to come back to life, and remind people of the huge commercial and musical celebration that it was. It’s time for the party to start again. 2016 sees the 21st anniversary of the release of It’s Great When Your Straight……Yeah Shaun Ryder is again back in the rehearsal studios with Kermit, about to unleash the mad carnival that disregards boundaries between rap, house, rock, soul, and pop and is Black Grape.
