  • The Cookie Presents: KATE JACKSON & THE WRONG MOVES + Guests 02/09/16

    Friday 2nd September KATE JACKSON & THE WRONG MOVES ----- Kate Jackson, former lead singer with much missed Sheffield greats The Long Blondes, is back with a new album ‘British Road Movies’ and new band The Wrong Moves. ‘British Road Movies’ will be released on May 20th 2016 via Hoo Ha Records with first track ‘Metropolis’ streaming now. The record was written by Jackson alongside guitarist and producer Bernard Butler at West Heath Studios in London. 'British Road Movies' takes in eclectic musical styles, from synth driven glam rock to Blade Runner electronica, faded piano allure to sweeping strings alt-country. All these recordings have two things in common, Jackson’s unique vocal top line and Butler’s instantly recognisable guitar sound. These are big, melodic alternative pop songs, with the guitarist’s naturally cinematic production perfectly complementing the narrative of the record. Each new song was conceived as a movie title. “The road, much written about in American popular song, and an American cinematic staple, is often ignored in British culture,” Jackson explains. “As an island our roads lead somewhere far too quickly to hold adventure. We are not the land of Jack Kerouac but of Antiques Road Trip. But who is to say our roads can’t be cinematic?” She cites filmmaker Chris Petit's 'Radio On' film from 1979, Patrick Keiller’s Robinson trilogy and the writing of Will Self and Iain Sinclair as touch points. The Wrong Moves were formed in 2014 after Jackson’s return from a four year hiatus in Rome where she lived and worked as a painter. Consisting of drummer Shannon Hope, guitarist Seymour Quigley, bassist Reuben Kemp and keyboard/synth player Jasper Kemp, the band bring a heavier take on the studio album, with dynamic interplay between a driving rhythm section and melodic guitar lines, synth sounds and vocal harmonics. Jackson is also a visual artist. Since studying fine art in Sheffield, Jackson has focussed her attention on painting, developing a style which mimics that of screen printing by building up colour layers with the use of acrylic paint and taped stencils to produce bright, graphic images. Her work is primarily concerned with urban landscapes and architectural forms, a recent series of paintings, ‘Abstract Brutalism’, being inspired by post-war Brutalist architecture. Removed of context, a backdrop or people, a single building often becomes the subject of a painted portrait. Structures and shapes in the landscape made by the concrete forms and shadows of these buildings inspire paintings which seem at first glance to be patterns rather than representations.

  • The Cookie Comedy Club Presents: ISY SUTIE 22/09/16

    The Cookie Comedy Club presents ISY SUTIE @isysuttie £14 / 14+ / 7:30pm -- ‘Gloriously upbeat.’ EVENING STANDARD ‘A real gem.’ THE GUARDIAN ‘A cross between Lena Dunham and Victoria Wood.’ SUNDAY TIMES THE ACTUAL ONE is Isy Suttie’s brilliantly funny new show about that moment in your late 20s when you suddenly realise that all your mates are growing up without you - featuring stories, songs and readings from the new book of the same name. The invisible deal that Isy had made – to prolong growing up for as long as possible – was all in her head. Suddenly everyone around her is into mortgages, farmers' markets and nappies, rather than skinny-dipping in the sea and sambuca sessions on rope-swings. When her dearest friend advises Isy that the next guy she meets will be not just The One, but The Actual One, Isy decides to delay the onset of adulthood for just a bit longer until a bet with her mum results in a mad scramble to find a boyfriend within a month. ISY SUTTIE is an award-winning comedian, writer, songwriter and actress. Her TV acting credits include Peep Show, Shameless and Skins. She regularly performs to live audiences and on radio, including her Sony Award-winning BBC Radio 4 series Isy Suttie's Love Letters, and has been nominated for a British Comedy Award three times. Isy has written for Red, Glamour, the Guardian and the Observer. Copies of Isy’s new book ‘The Actual One’ will also be available for purchase on the evening during a signing session at the venue.

  • The Cookie Presents: PILE + Guests 01/11/16

    Tuesday 1st November PILE The band's name speaks volumes to most, and to the rest... it soon will. Earning the reputation of "your favourite band's favourite band," the quartet (Rick Maguire, Kris Kuss, Matt Connery, and Matt Becker) have been setting the DIY indie punk scene ablaze since 2009, developing a unanimously praised back catalogue in the process and a legion of diehard fans throughout the entire country and abroad. The band have toured heavily over the years, playing all ages venues and basements in the spirit of DIY culture with peers Speedy Ortiz, Big Ups, LVL UP, Two Inch Astronaut, Krill, etc. Pile started to work on You're Better Than This at Omaha's Another Recording Company with producer Ben Brodin. The result of those sessions is Pile at their absolute finest, a perfect mix of the band's ferocious and gentle sides, an undeniably explosive record that twists and convulses with unexpected turns at every corner. Pile's exceptional ability to warp through loud-soft-loud dynamics is on full display, forgoing predictable song structures and triumphantly crushing any false sense of security. You're Better Than This is comforting at one moment and brutal the next, ripping through influences that include post-punk, noise rock, folk song-writing, and a particularly colossal take on indie rock.
