Galley Beggar To Perform At Rituals For The Blind Dead Pt.2, Lee Dorrian’s Curated 2016 Roadburn Event

Posted on Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Galley Beggar hail from London and Kent in the UK and describe their mission as ‘to imagine the next phase of English folk-rock’ – something that they achieve seemingly effortlessly on their third album Silence & Tears, out earlier this year. Given that Roadburn’s artistic director, Walter, has already earmarked Silence & Tears as his album of the year, we were thrilled when Lee Dorrian decided to invite them to appear at Roadburn 2016 on Saturday, April 16 at Het Patronaat in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

“I’m extremely excited to introduce one of my favourite UK bands to my Rituals of the Blind Dead curated event”, says Lee Dorrian, “Galley Beggar have been around for several years now and I have always followed what they have done. They are one of very few bands around today that understand the timeless beauty of acid-tinged folk-rock. In the true spirit of classic era Fairport, Trees, Spriguns, Mellow Candle and other contemporary kindred spirits their gentle, yet melancholic will act as the perfect refrain from all the dark, beastly heaviness surrounding the event. Don’t miss them!”

Roadburn Festival takes place between 14 – 17 April 2016 at the 013 venue, in Tilburg, The Netherlands Tickets will go on sale on Friday, October 2, 2015.

Album of the day: Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats – The Night Creeper

Posted on Friday, September 4th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Looking at the ascendancy of the UK’s Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats (often stylized with a lowercase ‘d’ on the last word) over the last half-decade is like staring into the abyss of our own worst impulses, and it seems unlikely the band would have […]

Album of the Day: Lucifer – Lucifer I

Posted on Thursday, June 18th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Treble Zine: The name Lucifer comes up frequently in searches through the vinyl archives of 1970s obscurities. It’s the pseudonym that electronic music pioneer Mort Garson used for his eerie, Moog-based progressive concept album Black Mass. Lucifer was also a short-lived and little known hard rock band […]

Album of the Day: Galley Beggar – Silence and Tears

Posted on Monday, May 18th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from The Active Listener: Kent based troubadours Galley Beggar unveil their third long player Silence and Tears and it is something rather special indeed. Unashamedly following the path of classic acid folksters such as Mellow Candle, Mr Fox and Trees, but with their own peculiar and wyrd twist, […]

Chocks Away With Admiral Sir Cloudesely Shovell at Roadburn 2015!

Posted on Thursday, January 29th, 2015

‘Airy ‘erberts Admiral Sir Cloudesly Shovell wowed ethusiasts of greasy balls-out ’70s rock with their very first sold-out 7″ for Rise Above back in 2011, followed by the one-two punch of a brace of albums – 2012‘s Don’t Hear It… Fear It! and last year’s not-so-difficult second album Check ‘Em Before […]

Album of the Day: Death Penalty – S/T

Posted on Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: He’s blessed us with the classics – Forest Of Equilibrium, The Ethereal Mirror, The Carnival Bizarre, Endtyme – the list goes on; as the main songwriter and penultimate “riff-finder general” for legendary doom outfit Cathedral, the name Gaz Jennings has been synonymous with skull […]

Album of the Day: Rog & Pip – Our Revolution

Posted on Friday, June 6th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Like a lot of “lost” groups the origins of Rog & Pip are winding and complicated. The duo of Roger Lomas and Philip “Pip” Whitcher trace their origins back to mid-’60s Coventry outfit The Sorrows, which found success not in the UK, but in Italy, […]

Album of the Day: Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell – Check ‘Em Before You Wreck ‘Em

Posted on Saturday, May 24th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: The old adage “never judge a book by it’s cover” could just as easily apply to albums, and yet the artwork for Check ‘Em Before You Wreck ‘Em, Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell’s second full length effort, seems to perfectly belie its musical content. The […]
