John Fairhurst Band + John E Vistic + DJ Jack Rabbit Slim

January 20, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - January 21, 2017 @ 2:00 am

£5 – £8

 

Meet John Fairhurst – the British rock guitar phenomenon. Sucker punch solos and a gravel swilled belter of a voice! Following rapturous receptions with main stage shows at numerous UK festivals, including Glastonbury, the band – John on guitar and vocals, Toby Murray on drums and Justin Kool on bass – are back for a London show!

Expect heavy electric guitar riffs, face-melting solos and his unmistakable growling vocals. Backed by the hardest-hitting rhythm section on the scene, John’s live shows are loud, sweaty, explosive and powerful.

“A mutant Jimi Hendrix/Neil Young hybrid. The inspiration here comes from Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters and manyothers…over-driven guitar and Tom-Waits-dukes-it-out-with-Mark-Lanegan vocals… astonishingly powerful.” (Music Riot)

“John Fairhurst is a phenomenon known as the Wigan Jimi Hendrix…Audiences are blown away by his ability to channel rock & roll greats into a modern and really jumping sound.”

(Chris Tofu – Island Records/Continental Drifts)

 

 

 

 

With a slew of larger-than-life projects under his belt —John E Vistic – is something of a Bristol household name. (Bristol Live)

John E Vistic is a singer multi-instrumentalist and internationally award winning songwriter. As well as his guitar and vocal duties with The John E Vistic Rock N Roll Soundsystem, Vistic is known for his work as Creative Director of The Russian Winter show (Old Vic) and his collaborations with other artists including Crippled Black Phoenix, Emily Breeze, Way Out West and General Midi.

The last John E Vistic album Modern Love was described as having ‘its roots in the halcyon days of albums when music had dynamic and you heard something different every time you listened, music that begged you to listen’ (Live Music Scene).

John E Vistic’s new album Welcome Down the Night is produced by Tristan Longworth (Jon Allen/The Third Degree). It is a beautifully crafted album of songs about ‘love, death and the landscape of the heart’. Recorded with a lush and sensitive dynamic utilising a wide range of instrumentation, the album features collaborations with a legendary range of artists including members of Primal Scream, Morcheeba, Jon Allen, the Marc Ford band and Rachel Stamp as well as Katey Brooks and the Vistic Rock N Roll Soundsystem. The first EP from the album, What Will Be (out on ITunes now) has been described as:

“…psychedelic country folk, laden with soul and thought provoking literary lyrics. Think Hozier and Johnny Cash meets The Doors with more than a dash of Jack White.” (Nurture Music)
