Gallops - Glyndwr TV Live Session

After releasing their debut album, a monstrous slab of dark experimental rock Yours Sincerely Dr. Hardcore in 2012 and at the peak of their sci-fi powers Wrexham’s Gallops soon announced they were no more and broke up in 2013. In 2016, almost three years to the day, they announced their return. “We missed it too much, basically having some time away from the band gave us a fresh perspective and made us realise that Gallops still has life in it. It just needed a nap.” 


After awaking from their nap, they have done so revitalised, rejuvenated and driven, creating an album that has stretched their horizons even further and is driven by the propulsive charge of electronic music. “I think the move towards a more electronic sound has been a natural progression for us. These days we tend to be more excited by the possibilities of electronic music than we do by traditional instrumentation.” That said, guitars and drums are far from strangers on the record, but instead they are used to colour and shade around the electronic centerpiece of the record. “We are very interested in marrying the real with the unreal." 


After a replacement and a departure, the band are now a three-piece of Mark Huckridge (electronics, guitar, keyboards), Liam Edwards (drums) and Brad Whyte (guitar, noise). Tucked away from anything resembling the music industry, their hometown of Wrexham somehow seems emblematic of the band’s desire to do things on their own terms and operate in their own world. "We enjoy the isolation from any sort of scene.” They say, “It means we can just get on with things and not worry about fitting into anything. It's a very working class town too, which keeps our feet on the ground and gives us a good work ethic.” 


Sonically the record matches the band member’s fuller sense of scope and vision; the sputtering electronics, and often-elongated guitar wails, recall the dystopian visions as depicted in the finest 1980s horror and sci-fi films. There are moments of soaring post-rock, humming dark ambience, esoteric offshoots, bubbling electronics and even the odd gargle of industrial-tinged noise. Huckridge moved next to a car park in which the throbbing sub-bass of boy racers has helped inform the rhythmic ideas for the record. And when the writing process begun the band were drummer-less and thus all the drum parts were written by non-drummers."This is very much Gallops MKII. We intend to keep pushing things further and we are already writing ideas for our next record.”

Theatre Of Hate
In 1980, Kirk Brandon formed Theatre Of Hate from the ashes of heralded punk band The Pack.  Joining Kirk on vocals were notable punk musicians Stan Stammers and Luke Rendall, along with old school friend, Steve Guthrie and Canadian born John “Boy” Lennard, who revolutionised the band’s sound with his haunting sax lines. Theatre Of Hate’s debut double-A-side single, “Legion”/”Original Sin”, topped the independent chart in 1980, and “Westworld”, their debut album, produced by Mick Jones from The Clash and released in 1982, held the number one position for 21 weeks.  The single taken from the album, “Do You Believe In The Westworld?” has become an anthem and is still widely played in clubs and on international radio, as well as featuring on numerous compilation albums. Supporting the likes of The Clash & Ian Dury lead to Theatre Of Hate headlining major venues across the UK & Northern Europe. Theatre Of Hate imploded in 1982, with Kirk taking Stan forward to form Spear Of Destiny, but the band has resurfaced over the years to play some very special shows. Having been asked by John Curd to join The Damned for a massive show at London’s infamous Roundhouse in December 2014 the band once again joined the fray. A short set of dates around the London anchor show attracted rave reviews, as did a 6 night night SOLD OUT run in December 2014. (see reviews below) 2015 saw the band play two short jaunts across the UK in April and December bothsets of dates wowed large crowds. During touring in 2014 and 2015 the band constantly recorded at Oxygen Studios in Manchester, the first new studio album in 30+ years is now complete and released via a private pledge! 'Kinshi' was released on October 14th 2016 on CD, Vinyl, Download & Dub to pledgers. The 12 brand new songs are simply stunning.  2017 is looking like a very busy year with the album getting labels releases in Europe & the USA. Shows in the UK, Europe and the USA are already on sale. Kirk, Stan and John will be joined by current Spear Of Destiny band member Adrian Portas (New Model Army) on guitar and Chris Bell(Hugh Cornwall) on drums to pay homage to the iconic TOH sound.  www.Kirkbrandon.com www.facebook.com/kirkbrandonofficial .... more info

Campfire Social
Free before 9pm…£4 after
Free all night with a student card.

Celebrating the release of their first collection of studio tracks ‘Wellbeing EP’ Indie-pop 5 piece, Campfire Social, are a refuge from the wild woods all around. Their incandescent, melodic songs take the intimate heartbreak of Elliott Smith and embellish with golden harmonies borrowed from The Beach Boys. At times getting you up off your chairs in a passionate rage, at others just to dance but always filled with hope. 

Last year the band released the single ‘Nothing Nowhere Never Now’, listed by Adam Walton (BBC Wales), Rock Current (podcast) and Drunk on Music (Blog) in their best of 2016 roundups.
That song is now one of two tracks from the newly released Wellbeing EP selected for the A-list by BBC Radio Wales resulting in continued airplay, a live session with Janice Long and further BBC 6 music plays. Now the band have taken on a ‘full steam ahead’ philosophy, performing as much as possible including a scheduled appearance at this years festival number 6 and a trip to South Korea, with the Backing of Focus Wales and WAI, for this years Zandari Festa.
