Projector ‘I Am Shamed’ Launch Party Gallery

On Thursday night, Projector launched their new single I Am Shamed at the Green Door Store, supported by Beach Riot (who we missed), CLT DRP and Egyptian Blue. For the first time in far too long, we were down the front with our camera, and here are our pics, then below that, there’s a spotify link to the single. As usual, click through to view large:

 

July Gig Previews

Three days in it’s probably time to make our July gig post.

31958801_10156507911402941_8413843466894704640_oFirst up on Thursday 5th July the Long Goodbye launch their new album Wait Another Day at the Brunswick. Support comes from Seadog and Luke Hyttner.

DITZ release their new single Seeking Arrangement at the end of next week, and to celebrate they’re playing a launch gig at the Hope & Ruin next Tuesday (10th July). Also on the bill are Haze, Guru and Demonstration.

When is a gig not a gig? When it’s a new club night. Crest of Death is a new night at Green Door store hosted by Wytches, and the first one takes place on Wednesday 11th July. Wytches play live on the first Crest of Death, which will also feature DJ sets from Rhys Webb of the Horrors and Jordan Cook of Crewel Intentions, but expect other bands on future nights.

34069152_793567730846634_7103242193749409792_oBreathe Panel release their self titled debut album in the next few weeks too, and will be playing an in-store at Resident on 17th July. The only way into the gig will be to pre-order the album, which will give you two guest list places.

Thursday 19th July is the launch party for the new Projector single at Green Door Store. I Am Ashamed comes out that day on Roadkill records. Support comes from Egyptian Blue, CLT DRP and Beach Riot. There’s an afterparty too – a new club night being run by Jamie from Tigercub. The night’s called Club Coco, runs from 11-4 and will be playing his favourite electronica, Disco and French House.

Our next gig is the following night, also at Green Door Store – Animal House headline supported by The Family Chain.

Last but by no means least on Saturday 28th July the Rock House Festival takes place at Green Door Store. There’s loads of Brighton Music Blog favourites on the bill including grasshopper, Projector, Fragile Creatures and other states, as well as a host of others. As well as all that, it’s raising money for local charity Carousel.

New Brighton Music

It’s been a few weeks since out last post for which we can only apologise – we had a holiday, then jet lag, and only now we’re back on the blogging wagon. In that time both The Magic Gang and Fickle Friends have released their albums, and it seems to have been one of the busiest periods for other bands to share new music. We’d have no hope of catching up if we wrote up our new music post the way we normally do, with us much info as we have and details of any upcoming gigs, so for this post we’re going to keep things brief – just names of bands and tracks – and hopefully by next week we can get back to normal.

The Magic Gang – Take Care

January 2018 gig previews

After posting our 2017 reflections in our top 25 over the past few weeks the time has come to look forward again. Here’s our January 2018 gig preview post.

GDS 7First up is a band who were in the top five of our end of year list. Fresh from supporting Fujiya & Miyagi on their UK tour in December, grasshopper are headlining their own gig at the Green Door Store on 3rd January, supported by Red Deer People and Olm. Continue reading

New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s new music post, two weeks after our last one – we were out of the country last week though, so we’re playing catchup a bit now. Our first tune this week is from Brighton supergroup Alien Stadium, made up of Steve Mason and Primal Scream‘s Martin Duffy. Their first release is a track called This One’s for the Humans, a lolloping almost-baggy almost-bluesy number which is taken from a mini LP called Livin’ in Elizabethan Times which gets released on 1st December. Have a dig around for the version that’s up on Spotify which clocks in over six minutes long and gets a much more psychedelic groove on.

September Gig Preview

One of these days we’ll get around to posting our gig preview posts at the end of the previous month rather than a few days into the new month. Not this month though. If I was on the ball, I’d have posted about ZOFFF’s gig at the Prince Albert last Sunday, where they were joined onstage by Terry Bickers and Jo Spratley and lit by Innerstrings. As a consolation, ZOFFF are playing again on 30th September at the Prince Albert. Continue reading
