  • Andy Wright & The Cookie Presents: The Chameleon Vox + Guests 10/05/16

    Andy Wright & The Cookie present: The Chameleons vox playing "The Script of the Bridge" album in full plus more. The atmospheric pop band the Chameleons formed in Manchester, England, in 1981 from the ashes of a number of local groups: vocalist/bassist Mark Burgess began with the Cliches, guitarists Reg Smithies and Dave Fielding arrived from the Years, and drummer John Lever (who quickly replaced founding member Brian Schofield) originated with the Politicians. After establishing themselves with a series of high-profile BBC sessions, the Chameleons signed to Epic and debuted with the EP Nostalgia, a tense, moody set produced by Steve Lillywhite which featured the single "In Shreds." The quartet was soon released from its contract with Epic, but then signed to Statik and returned in 1983 with the band's first full-length effort, Script of the Bridge. What Does Anything Mean? Basically followed in 1985, and with it came a new reliance on stylish production; following its release, the Chameleons signed to Geffen and emerged the following year with Strange Times. The dark, complex record proved to be the Chameleons' finale, however, when they split following the sudden death of manager Tony Fletcher; while Burgess and Lever continued on in the Sun & the Moon, Smithies and Fielding later reunited in the Reegs. In 1993, Burgess surfaced with his proper solo album Zima Junction. He and his band the Sons of God toured America the following year. As the '90s came and went, the four members of the Chameleons UK continued to work on music and see one another on a personal basis. While their own musical projects kept them busy, a reunion was practically inevitable. The Chameleons reconnected in January 2000 to prep for three May dates in England. The acoustic-based, self-released Strip was available by showtime and for a limited time only. Additional European dates followed throughout the summer, and by fall the Chameleons UK played their first American shows in nearly 15 years. Several live efforts appeared shortly thereafter. Why Call It Anything? (2001) marked the Chameleons' first studio album since 1986's Strange Times. This Never Ending Now appeared two years later. Influences The Soft Boys, The Kinks, David Bowie and The Beatles http://www.thechameleons.com/ £16 adv www.gigantic.com

  • The Cookie Presents: JOHN METCALFE + Guests 28/05/16

    JOHN METCALFE john-metcalfe.co.uk £10 / 8pm / 14+ John Metcalfe (Durutti Column) performs live 'The Appearance of Colour’ out now on Real World Records. Producer and arranger to the likes of Coldplay, Peter Gabriel and Blur, Metcalfe’s gorgeous new solo album beautifully unites the disparate strands of his kaleidoscopic musical world. Within the album are powerful rhythmic strings evoking the world of systems music, moments of transcendent solo piano, shimmering electronics and guitar, elements of drum and bass, and of chamber music. For these live shows Metcalfe’s has assembled an incredible line up of musicians from the worlds of post-classical, electronica and pop: the crisp, jazz-influenced beats from Rae Morris’ drummer Daisy Palmer, deeply felt groove from Red Snapper's bassist Ali Friend and the exquisite voice of Rosie Doonan, fresh back from touring with Birdy. "effervescent, divinely beautiful, packed with Eno-esque passages of ambience and glistening guitar lines worthy of Vini Reilly." – Clash "Very beautiful" - Lauren Laverne Headphone moment **** MUSICOMH "Staggeringly beautiful’ - Mary Anne Hobbs, BBC 6 Music

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

    The Cookie Comedy Club presents ISY SUTIE @isysuttie www.isysuttie.com £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.
