Dub Sex – Warm Up Show – The Eagle Inn Salford – April 7 2014

For me there are few better places to see a band you love in a small intimate venue where everyone can see the whites of everybody else’s eyes. Well The Eagle Inn scores on that count. My first time there & what a great little venue it is too. Tonight we are here to witness Dub Sex performing a secret warm up show for their first official headline show in around 25 years. The moment I heard I had to be there after being fortunate enough to witness their 7 song performance at a benefit show for St Mary’s Hospital Baby Unit back on October 13 2013. That show left me hungry for more.

Tonight’s show feeds that hunger as it is a longer set of Dub Sex classics, the bandDub Sex Eagle salford April 7 2014 -  Setlist have lost non of their edge, the sound is hungry, edgy & as wonderfully awkward & spiky as it ever was. The songs cross the years seamlessly, sounding a fresh as the first time I heard them 20+ years ago. If you want to hear some post punk the way it’s supposed to sound check this lot out sharpish!

The band’s line up consists of original members:- Mark Hoyle as ever on vocals, Cathy Brooks on bass, Chris Bridgett on guitar & new members Kevin Clark on drums & Marks song Stefan Hoyle on guitar. The 2 latter members crossing a complete generation, slotting in seamlessly & putting in solid full on performances.

2013 Stereokill Recordings
Release date – November 11 2013
‘Hope and Pray’ is the new single from Manchester band SupaJamma. The band feature ex Audioweb frontman Martin ‘Sugar’ Merchant on vocals, still mixing his styles from the sweet soulful melodies to the hard hitting ragga chants that he made his own personal trademark. The song is an expansion on the style he pioneered with his former band. This tune is about the raw savagery of human conflict both home & away.

Simon Worrall

Big Si, as everyone knew him, was the friendly drummer in Paris Angels, who passed away in October 2011. Si was big in stature at 6’4″ and big in personality. To give you a handle on him, he was a mixture between Keith Moon and Tommy Cooper,  a merry prankster that always had a one-liner ready for everyone and all situations. He was never punctual and sometimes infuriating, but you could never stay mad with him because he had a heart of gold and a rapier-like wit to match. A true mad-cap colossus of a drummer with an infectious smile who is truly missed by all that met him.

A true mad-cap colossus of a drummer with an infectious smile who is truly missed by all that met him.
Simon’s sudden death left no provision for his burial, this responsibility fell on his surviving brother and sister. To help with this all Simon’s friends clubbed together & paid for the funeral.http://louderthanwar.com/simon-worrall-from-the-paris-angels-rip/Then, in March 2013 ~ after they learned that Simon had no headstone ~ his friends met on St. Patricks Day at Leroy Richardson’spub, Gullivers in Manchester and decided to organise a fundraising gig to cover its costs. .
The resulting Paris Angels reunion/memorial gig was to be held at the Ruby Lounge, Manchester. Tickets sold out within two days of it being announced.Musician friends,Mark Burgess,Andy Whitaker,Cheapskakes&Eliza P also performed on the night and DJs,Tin Tin &Jason Boardman provided the tunes to keep the dancefloor flowing. Photographer,Ian Tiltondonated a print & former Manchester City footballer,Paul Lake gave a signed Manchester City shirt to raffle. The event was a huge success & enough money was raised for Si’s headstone.
