Green Mind presents STEVEN ADAMS AND THE FRENCH DROPS

https://www.facebook.com/stevenjamesadamsings/

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

Following a few years of performing and recording solo (see 2014’s House Music and 2016’s Old Magick), Adams has a new band – featuring members of The Drink and Absentee – and a new album; Virtue Signals (Hudson Records).

“He returns with a new band and fresh intensity, particularly on the furiously Neu!-like “Ex Future” and “Free Will”
UNCUT
“National treasure has a great new band”
THE GUARDIAN
“Indie snowflake remoaners left casting about for a smart, literate purveyor of melodic indie rock should really be taking Steven Adams to their hearts”
ECHOES AND DUST

Though the band worked on the songs for several months, the album was recorded in a little over a week, in September 2017, at Half Ton Studios in Cambridge. It was produced by Ben Nicholls, (Nadine Shah, Cara Dillon, Kings of the South Seas). Adams was initially ambivalent about having a producer on board, but Ben’s head is full of music. He came to a rehearsal and started making the occasional suggestion about songs and arrangements. At first we were a bit freaked out, but everything he suggested worked. In the studio he was in charge, which was oddly liberating. The album was then mixed by acclaimed producer and engineer (and Hudson Records supremo) Andy Bell.

It’s over 16 years since Adams started making music with The Broken Family Band, generating critical acclaim with each subsequent release and maintaining a dedicated cult following ever since. So, all these years later having been called a national treasure enough times to fill a pirate’s chest, without ever having become an actual pop star why does Steven Adams still do it? “I try not to overthink it or to feel reliant on this for anything other than what it is; sounds, words, feelings, and an excuse to hang out with good people. That’s virtue signalling, in case anyone asks.”

Aaahh!!! Real Records & Green Mind present BLOODY KNEES

Cambridge/London four-piece BLOODY KNEES return in support of their new EP “You Can Have It”.

Playing a mixture of grunge/slacker/punk, the foursome always put on a great live show. The last time they played Cambridge sold out the Blue Moon, so expect tickets to move quickly.

Green Mind presents GOAT GIRL ***SOLD OUT***

“Straight out of south London and determinedly DIY, Goat Girl are feisty, furious and fearless. Their incendiary rock, with shades of mid-noughties Cat Power and Medway garage girls Thee Headcoatees, challenges everything from national apathy in to the perils of public transport on Creep on the Train. The latter features the refrain “I really want to smash your head in,” and while singer and guitarist Lottie’s vocals are delivered deadpan, the firestorm of sharp riffs, pounding rhythms and defiant bass make the anger palpable.” The Guardian

Green Mind presents KIRAN LEONARD

https://www.facebook.com/digitalsustain/

Kiran Leonard has announced a brand new album Western Culture, released 19th October 2018 on Moshi Moshi. Ahead of this, he shares its lead single “Paralysed Force”.

Kiran Leonard: “”Paralysed Force” is about how insecurities you should settle within yourself often get transplanted onto other people you know. Projecting the question towards another allows you to shirk responsibility for your own wellbeing, but all this does is suspend the issue at hand, and prolong an inevitable falling back.

“There’s also a sort of compulsiveness, a wanting to be suspended, that’s involved in it all, because sometimes it feels good not to have to think about yourself. I suppose the song’s about being caught between those two points — basically, that even if you know you’re being irresponsible (and possibly daft), there’s still a desire to give yourself up.”

The album Western Culture marks a huge sonic progression due, in part, to the involvement of his venerable live band (Andrew Cheetham on drums, Dave Rowe on bass and Dan Bridgewood-Hill on guitar, synth and violin) on record for the first time. It is also the first Kiran Leonard album to have been made in a professional studio.

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

They emit smelting loud, visceral political punk rock with enigmatic, psychedelic poetry and diverse, raw music which takes them over, live on stage, forcing them to pour everything they’ve got into frenzied performances, leaving only blood-stained instruments behind. This verging-on madness experience is shocking audiences out of austerity inflicted apathy, into instant obsession.

Goldblume (album launch gig)

Aaahh!!! Real Records is unbelievably proud to present to you:

Goldblume (album launch show)

Having originally formed in 2015, and released two EPs and a single since, Cambridge three piece Goldblume finally release their début album “HUSK”.

HUSK is a record that is impossible to pigeonhole neatly, drawing aspects of math-rock, grunge, punk and alternative rock. Following on from 2015’s Real Nice and 2017’s Go Figure EPs—as well as the standalone single, ‘Fawning’, and a session with BBC Introducing—HUSK is a mature step forwards, showing Goldblume in a whole new light, and reaching a new level of songwriting craftsmanship.

Plus special guests Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam and FES uk.

Pre-order the album – on CD or deluxe CD – from http://www.real-records.co.uk
