It’s been a difficult few years for Saul Adamczewski. Originally the guitarist in Fat White Family, he was eventually forced to leave the band. One trip to rehab later and he’s joined forces with Childhood’s Ben Romans-Hopcraft to create an entirely new venture; the joyous eclecticism of Insecure Men.
The term ‘arty’ can be thrown at many bands, but no others can claim to have been formed as an actual piece of art. While at Brighton Art School, Dream Wife came together to write songs to be performed at the opening of an exhibition; intended as something of a parody, they became a fully-fledged band when they realised that they could actually write absolute bangers.
Virginia’s Lucy Dacus found critical acclaim with her debut album ‘No Burden’ back in 2016. A glorious melting pot of influences and unique musicality, it’s an album designed to stand the test of time. This year saw Dacus follow this release with ‘Historian’, an even more stunning offering which has pushed her into the mainstream.
Kilmarnock's Fatherson are grafters. Their relentless touring in recent years has helped them to build a substantial fanbase, so it comes as no surprise that tonight's Manchester date is sold out in advance; a milestone moment for the band as they've never previously achieved the feat in the city.
It's not often that a band don't make it over to the UK until after they've released their 'Greatest Hits', but Remo Drive are not a typical band. With the hyperbolic title of their debut album and this year's tremendous 'Pop Music' EP up their sleeve, Remo Drive are ready to launch their first ever British tour.
