New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s new music post, which starts a bit differently from normal because the first track I wanted to share isn’t online as far as I can see – It’s the Record Store Day release from Blood Red Shoes’ Jazz Life record label, and the release is called AA Sessions Volume One. It features contributions from AK/DK, Blood Red Shoes, Tigercub, Sick Joy and Projector. Hopefully by the time you read this they might still have a copy at Resident. If not, give Cult Hero, Vinyl Revolution or Rarekind a try. There’s only 500 for the whole country though, so good luck.

Brighton Rocks #22 : Winter Gardens

Untitled (10)es

What’s the best thing about Brighton?
Always plenty to do, no feelings of being judged and the vibrant atmosphere

Who are the your favourite local bands?
Well that is a tough one, Brighton is home to one of our most favourite labels – Bella Union, so naturally Penelope Isles are first to spring to mind, it’s been amazing to witness them grow over the past few years. Currls, Radidas, The GO! Team, Bad For Lazarus (RIP), Toy, Sit Down, Projector…

What’s the best venue?
Hope & Ruin! the food is good, the sound is good and the staff are lovely. As for a bigger venue, we are both quite partial to The Dome.
What’s the best rehearsal space / studio? Well I (Jamie) have only practiced in a couple of studios in Brighton and haven’t had the opportunity to record in Brighton either, WG practice in the middle of nowhere near Battle, I guess it’s pretty perfect as we are surrounded by country and have very little to distract us.

What’s the best club?
It’s a shame we have lost Sticky’s 😦 Went to some fantastic Club Nights there, the Brit-pop night Star Shaped was a lot of fun, The Volks for the Skanival too.

What’s the best record shop?
We both tend to buy new-released vinyl rather than crate-digging the secondhand shops (which we still do of course), so it’s got to be Resident hasn’t it? The’re great at supporting the local promoters and make it easy to obtain gig tickets. I would like to give Michael a shoutout from Pebble Records in Eastbourne too.

Where’s the best places to eat?
Well this is bloody difficult, hmm.. Purezza, The Earth & Stars, Coffee Counter, Beelzebab, Deadwax Social & The Revelator.

What’s the best pub?
The Earth & Stars! The best beers on tap and probably the best pub-grub money can buy. We also have a soft spot for The Colonnade.

Who’s your favourite Brighton celebrity?
Clarissa Dickson Wright or Nick Cave

When was the last time you had any Brighton Rock?
True story, a friend of mine used to own The Brighton Rock company and mocked up a prototype stick of rock for The White Stripes, he managed to secure a meeting with Jack – who (being fond of British culture) fell in love with it. They were planning on making thousands to sell on a huge tour… alas Meg fell ill and the tour was cancelled. Not really fans of rock, unless you’re talking about ROCK’n’ROLL.

Coral Bells by Winter Gardens is out now on Austerity Records. You can catch them live at Deadbeat Disco at the Richmond on 21st March.
