Funeral For A Friend   Friday 12th September 2014
FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND
THE SUN EXPLODES
OVER AND OUT.

Over the course of a decade, Funeral For A Friend has changed British rock music forever.

A bold, brave, yet undeniably true statement. The band’s journey from hardcore roots and DIY shows in Bridgend to major label records and worldwide tours has built a long and prosperous road that many home-grown bands from across the alternative spectrum have been travelling along ever since.

For those reasons (and more) it would be easy to understand if Funeral For A Friend chose to retreat into the comforts of nostalgia and the appealing warmth of retrospect as they prepare to unleash their sixth LP, Conduit. But, instead of seeking solace in the memories of past triumphs the band have set their feet forward as they embrace a newfound energy and passion for what they do on the record.

For singer Matthew Davies-Kreye, Conduit is their most honest and heartfelt record to date-

“For me the goal on this record was to be honest. I think we’ve tried that approach in the past but other people in the band have different ideas about how they see a record it can make it tough. Conduit is a new chapter for me in terms of performance and getting ideas and emotions across (a high priority for me on this record). I think with Romesh (Dodangoda, producer) we all did a really good job of putting our hearts on our sleeves.”

They are a band ready to explode, but most of all they are a group of guys who are thrilled to be where they are, and excited to be in the band they are in. Matt sums it all up best-

“My goals are simple- to work hard, play shows, have fun with my friends and make music that matters to me. Those are the only goals I’ve ever had when it comes to this band and they’re not going to change.”

Amen to that.

SECRET AFFAIR

Legendary Mod Revival group Secret Affair, led by Ian Page & David Cairns, head to Carlisle for the first time with a show at The Brickyard as part of their 35th Anniversary Tour!

Secret Affair were the most popular of the Mod Revival scene groups of the late seventies and early eighties. From their very first gig, opening for The Jam at Reading University in February 1979, the band were adopted by a group of East End mods, who readily embraced Page’s Glory Boy concept. This group of fans began referring to themselves as Glory Boys.

Secret Affair had become so closely linked to the emerging mod revival that in March 1979 Cairns wrote what would become the youth movement’s main anthem, “Time For Action”.

The debut single "Time for Action" sold a quarter of a million copies and firmly established the group's popularity by hitting No. 13 in the national UK charts and gaining the band a slot on "Top of the Pops".

More chart success followed with “Let Your Heart Dance”, "Sound Of Confusion", "Do You Know" and "My World". Two incredible albums, “Glory Boys" and "Behind Closed Doors" cemented the band's reputation and led to them gracing the front cover of the NME, Smash Hits, Melody Maker and Sounds.

Doors: 7.30pm
Admission: £12.00 advance / £15.00 on the door. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.
Tickets: Buy tickets online* or call SeeTickets on 0871 220 0260*. Alternatively pop into S4* or The Brickyard. For all ticket enquiries please contact The Brickyard direct rather than the local outlets.

CASTANETTES
DJs COTTONCONTROLLER (KONTIKI SUITE) & JOHNNY THIEVES

Hitting the road again in support of their soon-to-be-released second album, local band Kontiki Suite play their first home-town gig for quite some time. Their 2012 debut album, 'On Sunset Lake', attracted a host of glowing reviews worldwide, including the honour of being named album of the year on more than one music blog.

The follow-up to 'On Sunset Lake' is in the can and due for release anytime soon, so expect to hear the best of both albums at the show.

Praise for 'On Sunset Lake'...

"Equal parts cosmic Americana, west coast psychedelia, and pastoral Englishness… you'll definitely be hearing a lot more about these guys." No.1 Album of the Year - Active Listener.

"I’m struggling to remember when I last fell in love with a record as gorgeous as this." No.1 Album of the Year - Monkey Picks.

"2013’s Next Big Thing and I’m already pencilling this in as one of my top albums of the year!" - Terrascope.

"A bumper thirteen tracks of Byrdsian jangle, late ’60s folk-rock vocal harmony and West Coast haze." - SKRBBLR.COM

"English dreaming seldom sounded so sweet" **** - Daily Mirror.


Support on the night comes from The Wellgreen and Castanettes.


Glasgow's The Wellgreen combine classic sixties songwriting, early powerpop and psychedelia on top of vintage recording techniques to create a familiar yet fresh & original sound.

Having toured extensively over the last 2 years supporting Euros Childs & Stevie Jackson (as well as providing drums, bass, guitar and harmonies for both on their respective sets & records), 2013 saw The Wellgreen release their second album, Grin And Bear It on their own label, The Barne Society. They love writing songs, tea, blueberries, B&Q, shoes and sunshine.


Castanettes cover a broad spectrum of music, the Carlisle quintet fuse different ideas from a collection of genres to give them a unique and diverse sound. Their self recorded demos 'Live For You' and 'Never Change' were picked up by BBC Introducing with 'Live For You' also receiving airplay on stations such as Amazing Radio and appearing in the top 25 tracks of the week on Tom Robinson's Fresh Faves show on BBC Radio 6 Music.

Dragonforce   Tuesday 23rd September 2014
DRAGONFORCE
NEONFLY

One of the UK's most well known and loved power-metal bands, Dragonforce will embark on a massive 20 date UK and Ireland tour in September under the strapline ‘...this time it’s personal’ alluding to the fact that instead of playing a handful of larger venues the band are playing many shows geographically spread out across the country.

Commenting on the nature of the tour Herman Li said “We did a tour like this in between the 'Sonic Firestorm' and 'Inhuman Rampage' albums and have wanted to repeat it ever since but couldn’t because of touring commitments elsewhere in the world. This time we were determined to make it happen so we’re going to some cities we haven’t visited for years and some we’ve never visited at all.

One of the venues is a boat and one is a deconsecrated church! It will be great to see the fans up close and personal again, it’s going to be very hot, very sweaty and great fun!”.

Doors: 7.30pm
Admission: £16.00 advance. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.

Die No More   Saturday 27th September 2014
Raz White Entertainment Presents:

DIE NO MORE - ALBUM LAUNCH
SEEK SOLACE IN RUIN
MOTHERLOAD

Die No More are a British metal band based out of Carlisle, Cumbria. Forged by a group of friends back in 2011 and playing under the moniker of Dynamo, they built a strong local fan-base and ventured onto the main stage of Newcastle 02 Academy as well as gigging throughout the UK. The band decided a name change was required due to foreseeable issues with the magician Dynamo and in May 2013 before the band announced the release of their debut EP 'Blueprint' the name changed to Die No More.

Influenced heavily by the Bay Area thrash metal scene Die No More have merged elements of that intensity with legendary British bands such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Saxon. Heavy, melodic & riddled with incredible guitar riffs and solos, Die No More, while reminiscent of the greats; bring a fresh and hugely enjoyable slab of thrash metal to a young audience.

Shortly after the release of ‘Blueprint’ in September 2013, the band gained the attention of newly appointed A&R rep at Rocksector Records and after several meetings the band were more than happy to sign to the label which boasts an incredible array of talent on their roster.

Die No More booked back in with Matt Ellis at Axis Studios and set to work recording their debut album 'Elected Evil' – due for worldwide release through Rocksector Records on 3rd November 2014.

With dates being booked in on a daily basis and gigs arranged in the Netherlands and Belgium, Die No More are building quite a buzz on the metal scene. With slots secured at several Festivals for summer 2015 already, the band has much to look forward to.

The track 'Oblivious' taken from the album 'Elected Evil' is currently available as free download over at www.rocksector.com.

Doors: 8pm
Admission: £5.00 advance / £8.00 on the door. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.

LIGHT YOU UP
HEY VANITY

Decade are an alternative rock/pop punk band from Bath, UK. Formerly known as 'Ready Set Low', under which they released their first EP 'Lost At Sea', they soon changed their name to 'Decade'.

May saw the band on the Slam Dunk Tour, playing with fellow pop-punkers Hit The Lights, Transit and The Story So Far, and finished off with them playing Slam Dunk Festival itself. With their signing to ICE GRILL$, they even saw themselves playing overseas in Japan for the first time.

2013 has been a hardworking year for the band, with self-funding the recording of their debut album with special merch sales, and signing with Spinefarm records (a part of Universal Music Group).

They have since released their debut album 'Good Luck' and have toured successfully with Mayday Parade at the beginning of 2014. The latest excitement for Decade is their upcoming Autumn headline run with Light You Up and Hey Vanity.

Castanettes cover a broad spectrum of music, the Carlisle quintet fuse different ideas from a collection of genres to give them a unique and diverse sound. Their self recorded demos 'Live For You' and 'Never Change' were picked up by BBC Introducing with 'Live For You' also receiving airplay on stations such as Amazing Radio and appearing in the top 25 tracks of the week on Tom Robinson's Fresh Faves show on BBC Radio 6 Music.


"Not content with being lumped in with Manc music’s current psych revival, Stockport five-piece Blossoms have opted to invent their very own sub-genre: Ethereal Nostalgic Sonance".

"There's something of a Doors-ish mysticism about them; frontman Tom Ogden's deep vocals twisting through woozy, lysergic melodies and guitar lines, while a distinctive organ sound further cranks up the sonorous vibes".

"Manchester's Blossoms offer a lighter take on psychedelia, one that's steeped in classic British pop songwriting" - NME


Carlisle one-man loop project Fading Face will bring up the mood with his own brilliant blend of funk and psych. Think the party beats Chic covered in plenty of shining psychedelic guitar solos.

Kids In Glasshouses   Friday 17th October 2014
KIDS IN GLASS HOUSES
SAVE YOUR BREATH

After 10 successful years, Cardiff pop-rockers Kids In Glass Houses have decided to call it a day.

This comes as no easy decision as Aled explains...“It's a surreal and daunting moment when you realise that you're contemplating bringing to an end something that has given you unquantifiable joy and satisfaction, and that is so personal that it embodies who you are or have been perceived as for so long.

”The band have had an incredible run which spans over 10 years. They’ve had chart success with multiple albums/singles, sold out numerous tours, toured with incredible bands and travelled the world doing what they do best. It’s a sad but an exciting time in the KIGH camp and no doubt their fans will be feeling the same.

Aled goes on...“It's not an easy void to comprehend filling, but I think now is the right time for us to do it. We're all unified in this belief and excited by the prospect of ending things in the best possible spirit at the end of the year. We've known this day was coming for quite a while and have done our best to make sure that the next few months are as memorable as those years that have come before. I really can't thank everyone who has supported us enough.

”To coincide with the tour the band are producing exclusive Smart Casual and Dirt T-shirt, Vinyl and screen print ticket bundles. These are available now (26th Feb) for pre-order from - http://www.kidsinglasshouses.com

The South Wales quartet started in 2003 and saw success on the strength of the singles "Give Me What I Want" and "Saturday" off their debut album Smart Casual in 2008. They released their second album Dirt early 2010, which saw the band releasing four singles from this, most notably "Matters at All". The band's third album, In Gold Blood, was released on 15 August 2011. Their fourth album, Peace, was released on 30 September 2013 through Transmission Records which mid weeked in the UK Official Charts Top 20.

Kids In Glass Houses are – Aled Philips (Vocals), Iain Mahanty (Guitar) , Joel Fisher (Guitar) , Andrew Sheehy (Bass) and Phil Jenkins (Drums).

Phil finishes with...“The October tour will be the last for Kids In Glass Houses. However sad that sounds, the whole idea behind this split is to make most of 2014, truly enjoy what we have & give the band an honorable send off. Let's celebrate.”

The Doors Alive   Friday 7th November 2014
Live! Planet Presents:
THE DOORS ALIVE

Back by popular demand!

The Doors Alive are a British tribute band widely regarded as the closest and most enthralling representation of the legendary 1960s rock gods The Doors in the world today.

The band re-create the sound, look, presence and magic of a real 1960s Doors concert, perfectly and effortlessly transporting the audience back in time with classic hits such as 'Light My Fire', 'When The Music's Over', 'Riders On The Storm', 'The End' and many more.

Willie Scott captures the look, attitude, and rich baritone voice of the late, great Jim Morrison with ease while his compadres showcase the musical chops of original Doors members Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore with finesse and skill.

To achieve that authentic Sixties sound, the band even use the very same instruments that members of the Doors originally used. These include a vintage Fender Rhodes Bass keyboard, a vintage Gibson keyboard and a vintage Gibson S.G guitar.

The Doors Alive have left audiences awestruck all over the world and repeatedly sell out some of the most respected venues in the business, including O2 Academies all over the U.K.

“Truly AMAZING… They capture the true spirit of The Doors” - Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1.

"If you thought Val Kilmer was good, be warned this guy is even better. Moving and singing like Morrison the rich baritone clung to the air like molasses - Simply The best Doors tribute band on the road at the moment" - Ron Clooney (Author of "Mr. Mojo Risin).

"The Doors Alive is the best Doors "tribute" band that I've seen... Sometimes they sound more like The Doors then The Doors" - Doug Cameron (Assistant road manager to The Doors 1968/69).

Take a trip with one of the greatest bands that ever lived.

Doors: 8pm
Admission: £10.50 advance. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.

In a bone crushing two hour set, all the essentials are covered with breathtaking accuracy including 'Welcome To The Jungle', 'November Rain', 'Sweet Child O' Mine', 'Paradise City', 'Mr. Brownstone', 'You Could Be Mine', 'Nightrain', 'Rocket Queen', 'Knocking on Heaven’s Door' and so much more.Having played with current and past Gn'R members along with members of Cinderella, Alice Cooper, White Lion and Slash's Snakepit to high praise/rave reviews, The Guns N' Roses Experience have the only tribute band guitarist officially endorsed by Marshall amps, just like the legend Slash himself.

Together with 4 other GnR clones, these guys deliver a sound and look that is unequalled by any other band.

Cockney Rejects

COCKNEY REJECTS
NO THRILLS
THE MUFF WIGS

Rarely in the long history of British rock’n’roll has there been a story of such depth, magnitude and sheer turbulence as that of the Cockney Rejects.

The band were formed in the late Seventies in East London as an answer to the art school punk that had dominated the scene up until then.

Fiercely working class in stance and attitude, the band eschewed the political ramblings of punk’s first wave and sang about the circumstances that surrounded them and millions of street kids in Britain’s inner cities- Police harassment, street battles and football to name three.

Signed by EMI after playing four local gigs (less than The Pistols!) they found themselves playing sell out tours the length and breadth of the UK and seeing their debut album storm the charts.

Top of the pops appearances followed, which became the stuff of legend as the band generally ran amok in the hallowed White city studios, finally getting banned from the show for their boisterous behavior.

In 1980 the band recorded a riotous version of ‘I’m forever blowing bubbles’ to celebrate the fact that their beloved West Ham United had reached the FA cup final that year, but their devotion to all things claret and blue proved to be their downfall as the gigs became battlegrounds between the band and rival supporters, culminating in the vicious ‘Battle of Birmingham’ that led to serious criminal charges that in turn led to the band being finished as a touring unit.

With the band’s first phase being over, in the interim they were discovered by a brand new fanbase such as US bands Rancid and Green Day, who cherished the Rejects and their terrace punk singalong anthems which, in turn, inspired a new generation of kids to check them out.

Due to overwhelming demand, the band returned to the live circuit in 2000, and have since gone from strength to strength, playing to hundreds of thousands of people across the globe with a live set that is so energetic that it has to be seen to be believed.

With the fractionalization of the late ‘70’s and early ‘80’s now gone for good, with every gig becoming a party for fans and band alike, the Cockney Rejects go from strength to strength.

With a feature length documentary, ‘East End Babylon’ and a brand new album of the same name being released in October 2012, there has never been a better time to check out the band that inspired a generation with their timeless brand of terrace sing along classics and white hot live set.

Doors: 8pm
Admission: £14.00 advance / £16.00 on the door. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.

Bad Manners   Sunday 28th December 2014
BAD MANNERS
MAX SPLODGE

Formed in 1976 while attending Woodberry Down comprehensive school, London, Bad Manners went on to become heavyweight Ska legends and a much loved 1980s pop band. Between 1980 - 1983, Bad Manners spent 111 weeks in the UK's pop charts and the band had 12 hit singles which included Lip Up Fatty, My Girl Lollipop and Special Brew.

Although their line-up has fluctuated since their successful chart career, Buster Bloodvessel has always remained, continuing to play the classic anthems to audiences all over the world.

Their numerous TV appearances included many performances on Top of The Pops along with slots on Tiswas, Cheggers Plays Pop, The Time of Your Life, Nevermind The Buzzcocks and The Time & The Place. Buster often dressed up for Top of The Pops, much to the bemusement of the show's producer, and who can forget him clowning around in a frilly dress and a pair of DM's for the Can Can, playing the part of Henry VIII while singing to a Blow-Up Doll during Lorraine, and also pretending to be a human blackhead while performing Just A Feeling for the nation!

In 1981, the group performed in front of a television audience of millions at the Brit Awards, and Buster himself also starred in the movies 'Sammy & Rosie Get Laid' and 'Out of Order' in the late 80s, before landing a part in an episode of Boon in 1990. Classic track 'Special Brew' has promoted a popular biscuit and also a large UK supermarket chain on TV adverts in recent times.

Bad Manners have always been a non - stop party band and continue to hold that high accolade to this day, touring extensively both in Britain and abroad.

With support from Max Splodge, this promises to be one awesome night!

Lace up your boots, pull up your braces and get ready to party with Buster and the boys. You won't forget it!

Doors: 7.30pm
Admission: £17.00 advance / £20.00 on the door. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.
