Raised on a diet of The Clash, The Jam, Specials, Billy Bragg and other such politically-charged, punk-ignited British pop, Southampton-born troubadour Seán McGowan had been playing up and down the UK for five years, and DIY released two EPs (given away / sold on a pay what you want basis at shows), before catching the ears of the music industry at 2013’s Great Escape festival.

An appearances on Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage at Glastonbury that year saw Seán exposed to his biggest audience yet, and touring / playing shows with artists the likes of Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, The Rifles, Beans On Toast and Frank Turner.

Green Mind 18th Birthday: OCTOBER DRIFT + Deep City + special guests

OCTOBER DRIFT
Deep City

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

Green Mind turns 18s this February and we’ve booked a stonking month of shows featuring some of our favourite bands, but for the main event we’ve done what we’ve always done and picked some of the hottest new bands to help us celebrate.

October Drift played for us in June of 2018 and blew us away. Massive walls of guitar, influenced by Mogwai as much as Joy Division, blended with introspective lyrics and earthy vocals.

“Why: Rhythmic and emotive, the latest track from German producer/composer Josin is truly enveloping. Crafting a sound that is both intense and seductive, ‘Feral Thing’ swirls and sways through its five minute running time. Building with consideration and an adept subtleness, the song flowers into a melancholic and, frankly, beautiful piece of steadily expanding delicateness.” Overblown.co.uk

“A voice for the voiceless, Louisa Roacher’s lyricism is poignant and powerful as she offers a critique on social norms and government actions, her words lifted higher by zero-gravity synth lines and psychedelic splashes of guitar. Spoken-word that borders on rap at times, Roacher performs poetry that challenges the status quo to create a sonic revolution; “how can one be free whilst one lives in pain,” she defiantly sings.” Clash Magazine

Green Mind presents JACK LUKEMAN

‘The most magnificent and enigmatic of performers.’ Edinburgh Spotlight Magazine

Jack Lukeman is an Irish singer-songwriter, performer, raconteur and a whole lot more besides. A platinum-selling, critically acclaimed artist in his homeland, in recent years Lukeman has devoted more of his time to winning a growing fanbase in the UK and abroad. In this regard, he has toured the UK as Special Guest on tours by artists as varied as Imelda May, Jools Holland, The Proclaimers and Neil Sedaka, and is currently promoting Magic Days, his latest album of idiosyncratic original songs. Lukeman is a compelling, dazzling stage performer. Incorporating the theatrical and romantic sensibilities of the likes of Jacques Brel, but with genuine melodic appeal and a knack for creating his own ‘magic realist’ world that is peopled by all manner of unusual, picaresque characters, Lukeman is a rare, unusual brand of performer.

Recalling the rich history of New York’s musical heritage whilst keeping its sight on the future, Endless Scroll revitalizes the rock and roll vocabulary under the influence of post punk, contemporary pop, hip-hop, kraut rock, and folk-derived narrative songwriting.

Endless Scroll was recorded and produced by Austin Brown (Parquet Courts) on the same Tascam 388 tape machine used for their LP Light Up Gold.

Green Mind presents PIROSHKA (members of Lush, Elastica, Moose…)

Green Mind presents PIROSHKA (members of Lush, Elastica, Moose...)

https://www.facebook.com/piroshkaband/

Piroshka is the Hungarian for Little Red Riding Hood, and gives a subtle nod to a certain red hairdo that stood out in the 1990s Brit-guitar-pop scene. It’s also the alter ego of four notable talents – Miki Berenyi (Lush), KJ ‘Moose’ McKillop (Moose), Mick Conroy (Modern English) and Justin Welch (Elastica).

Making gorgeous bittersweet, euphoric pop that is much more than the sum of the four parts, Piroshka’s music combines physical force with sublime delicacy and lyrics that reflect the brutal times we are currently living under. The band will be making their live debut in November 2018.

Green Mind presents TOM WILLIAMS

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

https://www.facebook.com/tomwilliamsmusicuk/

“He has released four albums as Tom Williams & the Boat but for his fifth, the Hastings troubadour has dropped his anchor, come ashore and is suddenly riding a quickening hype-wave, under his own name. The vintage pop-rock of All Change was recorded between classes with a student-backed band while he was artist-in-residence at Leeds Beckett University but its orchestral flourishes and even, on the track What a Shame, bursts of choir alongside an eerie organ, make it sound expensive and epic. Stylistically, Williams swings from Damien Rice acoustica on Sometimes to a whorl of psychedelic Radiohead on the refugee crisis-inspired Everyone Needs a Home, while nailing Oasis’s knack for pop songwriting. Better, though, is the monster, bourbon-laced riffage on Little Bird, as if latter-day Arctic Monkeys had done the Twin Peaks soundtrack, and the throaty urgency of Higher Place. Next year’s Brits critics’ choice award is surely his.” The Guardian

Green Mind presents PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS

“The pig has several connotations. Most civilisations and cultures have seen them as arbiters of fertility, virility, strength and abundance. The Buddhist tradition swings the other way, seeing the pig as ignorant, illusory, greedy, lustful. Other religions see them as unclean. Then there is the Celtic fable of Manannan, who owned a herd of pigs that never dwindled – they were forever replenishing their numbers.

I could go on. The point is that the pig is multifaceted and almost indefinable – a shifting construct for people to hang their hopes and fears on. It is also a heave bag of flesh that wallows in mud and s*** all day until taken to the slaughterhouse. A myriad of strong, indelible, contradictory images, fit for a Newcastle heavy psych band that can’t reign in their swine (although they have reined in members of likeminded noisemongers Khunnt and Blown Out).” The Quietus

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

‘The Last Day’ is the breathtaking new single from Luke Sital-Singh, available to stream and download now. A heart-wrenchingly poignant yet life affirming imagining of his last day alive, it’s a song that masterfully crafts hope and light out of the embracing of mortality.

I had no intention of writing another song about death, Luke says. I guess that’s just the happy fun-time guy that I am. I like how a song about the end is coming out first. Putting everything in perspective again as a new phase begins.”

The exquisite animated video for ‘The Last Day’ was directed by Uncle Ginger, who say: As fans of Luke’s music and approach to songwriting, we were delighted to be asked to create an animation for Luke Sital-Singh. Our animation visually reflects the beautiful narrative woven by Luke’s lyrics, whilst echoing the intimacy, honesty and tenderness of The Last Day.
