Golden Spike EP launch Party at The Glad.

Support from The Yes mess

London’s Golden Spike, praised for their highly-melodic, concise and off-kilter approach to classic pop, celebrate the release of their four-track debut EP, Whom Shall We Shoot.

Formed in London in 2015, Golden Spike´s globe-spanning indie-Americana sound is made by two Australians, an Irishman and an American.

Come tonight and celebrate the launch of their new recording at The Glad. No charge to get in and you buy the bands a drink too…

Expect a live set from The Golden Spike who will be supported by the brilliant Yes Mess.

The EP, recorded at Soup Studios in London, will be released digitally on June 3rd by Chicago’s Hear Diagonally Records and features stunning artwork by Chicagoan Tamara Fraser.

The EP will be available through all digital stores and streaming sites.

In addition we have the most wonderful, most entertaining glad favourites…….The Yes Mess.

Long time friends The Yes Mess will be supporting Golden Spike tonight in a kinda Zappa meets Nilson type way…..perhaps

We only get to book La Vie en Rose a few times a year so this is a rare treat.

This lot are magnificent.

La Vie en Rose grew from the regular gypsy jazz jam sessions at Exeter’s Globe Inn.

Now, swinging guitars, hot fiddle, soulful clarinet and slaptastic bass-fiddle come together to play music inspired by the ‘hot jazz’ musicians of 1930s Paris.

The Kirkland Turn April 2016

The Kirkland Turn

Fronted by husband and wife duo Daryl and Katie Kirkland, on vocals and drums/brass respectively, supported by Christian Dezelu on bass and Ashley Francis on harmony vocals. They released their first album, Madness and Faith in 2014, had a baby girl, and are now recording Album number 2! Their sound is a collision of Low meets Roy Orbison meets Julie Andrews, powered by Katie’s marvelous junk-shop drumming and Daryl’s soaring vocals.

Kirkland turn on at 9pm

…and in a supporting role we have Nico & Julia, the pair of head honchos from the super group that is Panama Red with acoustic versions of the bands best songs.

Nico & Julia (Panama Red) on at 8pm

strouzer

Back at The Glad.

After spending some time honing his skills across the pond Joe Strouzer is back at the Glad.

A harmonica player, blues shouter and guitar picker, Joe Strouzer sings songs from his travels from Newcastle to New Orleans and a hell of a lot of places in between.

His driving resonator guitar is coupled with true harmonica voodoo and biting songwriting of modern trouble, heartpains, moonlit trysts, drinking and devilment, peppered with a rich history of blues.

Two sets

8.30/9.30
