  • Andy Wright Presents: WHEN WE WERE WOLVES + Death Remains + The Reckless Youth + The World Can Wait 17/09/15

    WHEN WE WERE WOLVES. When We Were Wolves are a five piece post-hardcore band from Bridgend/Newport, South Wales. Since forming in July 2011 the band have built up a strong following within the South Wales metal scene within such a short space of time. The band are often renowned for the fierce, dynamic live performance that they deliver at every show and have shared the stage with breaking bands from around the world such as Bury Tomorrow, Bleed From Within, Devil Sold His Soul, The Amity Affliction, Evergreen Terrace, Exit Ten, Carcer City and many more. At the start of this year the band released their debut Ep "The more things change, the more we stay the same" (KKKK-Kerrang). Influences Slipknot, Of Mice & Men, A Day To Remember, Architects, Parkway Drive, While She Sleeps DEATH REMAINS. Kerrang - KKK "Death Remains hit you square in the jaw like a sucker punch from oblivion." From London England, comes DEATH REMAINS. Formed in late 2010, Barry (vocals) Marc (guitar) were originally members of After Death. A band that had huge success touring across Brazil and many other places but unfortunately come to an end when tragedy struck while in Brazil when 2 of the members drowned while swimming in the ocean. Most people at that time would have called it day but Barry and Marc knew they had to carry on for their childhood friends dream. In 2010, changing the name to DEATH REMAINS (in memory of After Death by implying 'we are still here') brought a new vigor to the band and along with that came a more intense sound and an undying passion for the music they create. The band self released their EP 'A Thousand Lives' in 2011 which gained the band the respect of the London metal scene. Now with a ton of high profile shows to their name and a debut album, 'STAND.FIGHT.BELIEVE' which released in November 2013 through In At The Deep End Records, reached number 6 in the iTunes metal chart and received huge praise from the music media the band are ready to make their mark.

  • The Cookie Presents: REEVES GABRELS & HIS IMAGINARY FR13NDS feat. LISA RONSON 13/10/15

    Reeves Gabrels & His Imaginary Fr13nds Power trio celebrates album release with small club gigs across the UK Following a three week tour of the USA in July/August 2015, Reeves Gabrels, long-time artistic partner of David Bowie and The Cure’s current lead guitarist, is taking his power trio, Reeves Gabrels & His Imaginary Friends, back to the UK. The band toured England in October 2014 and look forward to a fuller UK run in October 2015. If you’re a fan of great songs, stellar musicianship and fearless improvisation, you should catch Reeves & friends live while you can. Tour set highlights from the new album include the biting “Drown You Out” and the spooky “House of Usher,” which draws its title from an Edgar Allan Poe story published in 1840. Unusual interpretations of Bo Diddley’s early rocker “Who Do You Love” and Jimmy Reed’s blues “Bright Lights, Big City” also feature. Fans of earlier Reeves Gabrels albums will be pleased too, as the trio plays songs from Sacred Squall of Now (1995), Ulysses (1999) and Rockonica (2005) plus co-writes with some of Reeves’ more famous friends, such as Tin Machine’s “Bus Stop,” written by David Bowie & Reeves Gabrels, and “Yesterday’s Gone,” written by Reeves Gabrels & Robert Smith of The Cure. Lisa Ronson Lisa Ronson is a singer and writer of songs with wry, existential lyrics and a sound that blends synth-pop and alternative rock. She relocated to London in 2012 from New York where she was a member of the art pop band The Secret History and released two albums with them. Lisa’s acclaimed solo single “Shopping & F” (2014) featured Reeves Gabrels on guitar. Most recently, in June 2015 she toured in the UK with Tony Visconti & Woody Woodmansey’s Holy Holy performing David Bowie’s seminal The Man Who Sold The World album live.

  • The Cookie & Magic Teapot Presents: GIRLS NAMES + Support (THE MUSICIAN) 17/10/15

    The Cookie & Magic Teapot presents... Girls Names Girls Names are a band from Northern Island who have only been together for about five years and they are already making quite a name for themselves with a sort of dated 80s sounding indie music. The guitar is very fragmented when they launch into their set opening with a song called “Portrait” which sounds as though it is going through a number of various effects pedals. There is also a synthesizer pad supplying a drone effect above the music. The lead singer and guitarist, Cathal Cully, is a very sloppy guitarist to say the least, almost sounding as thought he wants this band to sound a little bit like Joy Division. “The New Life” is a song that makes me realize that Girls Names’ sound is sort of formulaic with it’s vast soundscapes and lazy guitar playing, alongside those “I can’t be bothered to sing but I’m singing” style of vocals. “Hypnotic Regression” bring this set to a close seeing this hipster audience engaged but looking almost to cool to react. + Support TBA £8ADV Doors 8pm
