Sunday 1st August – Glasswerk Leeds Launch Gig @ Josephs Well, Leeds
Latest news just in is that Cadium will be the guest headliners for the night. After taking a year off to finish university, the metalic, post hardcore 4 piece are back on rock, doing some pre-production recordings this month, before going into the studio with Ace (ex Skunk Anansie) and touring from September onwards, including several dates supporting Katastrophe Wife (ex Babes In Toyland).
Your favourite independent new music promoters, Glasswerk.co.uk, are heading along the M62 to the fine city of Leeds on Sunday August 1st to launch the Glasswerk Leeds piece of the jigsaw puzzle, ie launching the Glasswerk.co.uk Leeds music website. To mark this virtual occasion they are throwing a semi-all dayer gig filled with the cream of local Leeds talent. Performing are This Et Al, Lycra Sleep, The Lucida Console, !Forward, Russia!, The Old House and iLIKETRAINS. Doors are at 5pm and it’s a delightfull £4 entry all night long.
This Et Al – Atmospheric/alternative garage rock four piece have recently been hailed as “Sonic Youth with an English twist”
Lyca Sleep – “Absolutely magnificent”, Mary Ann Hobbs
“Simply breathtaking” – Drownedinsound.com
The Lucida Console – Math post-rock as seen with the likes of Biffy Clyro, Aerogramme and This GIRL
!Forward Russia! -Screeching guitar/bass/drums post-punk attack with numbers
The Old House – Wakey lads with top indie-punk-POP tunes, “catchier than pneumonia”
iLIKETRAINS – A post rock band writing beautifully arranged epic songs influenced by Sigur Ros and Mum to XTC and The Smiths. Their live shows are haunted by super projections and slide shows.
Mat Ong (chief booker) states, I am very excited about opening up our operations in Leeds. There are some really cool bands coming out from there at the moment yet the national media seems to have not noticed that The Music, Kaiser Chiefs, The Gliteratti, Thisgirl etc all come from this part of the country. More exiting is that its not just one type of music emerging but a whole bunch of different styles.
