Conundrum In Deed began in 2009 as a collaboration between psychedelic songster Greg Shields and
prog-rock aficionado and pianist Michael Sadler. They have been playing venues around London since 2011, and released their debut LP, GENTLEMEN, in July 2013. Their most recent lineup includes John Davidson (31) on bass and Tom Sibly on drums.
The music has a 1970’s feel, incorporating the musicality of prog-rock with classic song structures and
delicate melodies. There are eclectic influences from jazz, folk, psychedelic, and classical genres.
The lyrics are poetic and surreal, journeying through the absurd and beautiful. Similar artists include
David Bowie, Yes, Pink Floyd, Genesis.
This is the band’s farewell show, after which they will be on hiatus until mid-2015. So don’t miss out!
It started with a plan, how do you get the right people and get them playing like they’ve been locked in a rehearsal room for 10 years and are ravenous for the taste of their first gig? How do you get everyone on the same wavelength and pulling in the same direction as they craft interesting, catchy music that isn’t the paint by numbers safe bet that is the majority these days? You get 4 talented musicians together and form not 1 but 2 tribute bands of 2 of the most demanding and difficult to imitate acts around today, Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age.. Master that to healthy success and start writing your own songs and the results are there to be heard, with various musical backgrounds and tastes not particularly sounding like either tribute group apart from the level of energy and focus that can be said for both, this is Foxer. Sly, cunning rock n’ roll, Foxer knows what its doing, Foxer’s gonna get ya!
Night Screamer is a mix of classic metal, hook laden hard rock riffs and 80’s nostalgia making it’s way across London and the UK from 2014.
Pressurehead hopes to bring back the art of grunge, hopes to captivate peoples hearts and minds in the same way Nirvana, Sound Garden, Pearl Jam, Mother Love bone and many others did in the early 90s.
Hate Notes are a crunching Electro Indie two-piece outfit from East London. They have gigged extensively around London over the past year, at venues such as The Dublin Castle and The Comedy. Their main influences include New Order, Loom, LCD Soundsystem and Bloc Party.
