Babble, Steve Page, Chameleon and Other Colours from Oxford to play at New Brewery Arts
9:49am Thursday 5th July 2012 in What's On
ANOTHER eclectic range of top live music at one of the greatest little venues around; Brewery Blues, Cirencester, Friday, July 13.
Babble are one of the most creative tour de forces in the South West. Their music explores the 'spaces in between' embracing a renewed and vibrant attitude to life, taking you upwards and sideways with rhythms and soundscapes, wild guitars and poetic lyrics.
The line-up is Rob Williams (guitars/synthesis), Karen Langley (lyrics and vocals/vocal arrangements), Paul Smith (Double Bass), Tony Bird (Drums/percussion) and Eric Hej drums/percussion/Wildman) all joined by a shared interest in the healing force of music. Their brand new album 'Shape of the Flux' will be in hot demand on a night that is sure to be a consummate performance experience.
Steve Page is a highly regarded Country Singer from Bristol but there are undeniable Texan Blues influences in his material. Steve's songs are populated by the drunks, losers and drifters of the American under-classes - all delivered in his careworn dark vocals. His master class album 'The Age of Plenty' bears testimony to lessons learnt along the old highway. Steve is joined by Chris Gamble on violin and Gary Peters on pedal steel.
Old friends Chameleon (Jan Newton and James Slater) add their own brand of entertaining Folk/Americana to proceedings. These two masters of the Bristol folk scene are well worth the entry fee alone.
Other Colours from Oxford describe their music as WAP (Wild American Punk), played with a classic British feel with some quirky originals thrown in. Phoebe Greggor delivers a crazy blend of Siouxsie and Lene Lovich, Max Maxwell's powerhouse drumming packs every moment with dynamic energy and Sam Cowley (Bass) and Angus Allman (Guitar) lock things together.
