Brighton Rocks #20 : Ex-Display Model

A few months ago, a new account appeared in Instagram suggested people to follow section. It was in the name Ex-Display Model, but it didn’t have any posts, or any follows. Thanks, but no thanks Instagram. It popped up again a few weeks later, followed by a few music accounts that I follow, but still with no posts, so this time I thought maybe I would start following it myself. Then a few weeks later a single picture was posted, which looked like it might have been David and Ed from Fujiya & Miyagi, but I wasn’t 100% sure.  And then in August, Ex-Display Model put out their first single Immaculate Rip. A couple more tracks were drip fed out, then last Friday their self titled debut album was released with no great fanfare, slipped out for people to discover themselves. I got in touch to ask if they fancied doing a Brighton Rocks, but it turned out that AKDK are on tour in Brazil for the next few weeks so Ed wasn’t about. David was keen to strike while the iron was hot though, so he arranged for a stand in and the photo shoot went ahead anyway: Continue reading

Kitfest gallery – Fujiya & Miyagi, Alice Russell & TM Juke, The Miserable Rich and Gloria Cycles

Yesterday a charity concert was held at St George’s Church in Kemptown for the Kit Tarka Foundation, MC’ed by David Shrigley, with Fujiya & Miyagi and Alice Russell & TM Juke at the top of the bill, and Gloria Cycles and The Miserable Rich reforming especially for the event. The Kit Tarka Foundation was set up around a year ago following the tragic early death of The Miserable Rich lead singer James de Maplequet’s baby son, and the evening wasn’t without it’s emotional moments, but the evening was a celebration for what would have been Kit’s first birthday. Our words can’t do the event justice, but hopefully our pictures can go some way there. Click through for larger versions: Continue reading

The big gig to mention this month though is Kitfest, taking place at St George’s Church on Saturday 15th September. It’s in aid of the Kit Tarka Foundation, a charity set up by The Miserable Rich lead singer James De Malplaquet following the sad early passing of his son at just thirteen days old. The Miserable Rich have been on hiatus for a few years but are reforming for the concert which sees Fujiya & Miyagi (playing their only Brighton gig of the year) and Alice Russell & TM Juke at the top of the bill for the evening, which will be MCed by David Shrigley. Gloria Cycles are also reforming for the night – newcomers to Brighton might know the name from the vintage sign in the Basketmakers, but Gloria Cycles was also the name of one of the city’s top bands around ten years ago – alongside Jess Bishop, We Bop Choir and 1BTN DJs.

Ex-Display Model / Immaculate Rip

We don’t generally do posts about individual tracks. That’s what other blogs do. Blogs that have plenty of time on their hands, and whose writers have that ability to turn on a tap of descriptive prose, a skill that still hasn’t come to us yet even after nearly seven years of Brighton Music Blog.
