LMP & Lomax Presents: The Wood Burning Savages, DDT, Sulking Dutchmen

Lomax, Cumberland Street, Liverpool

 

https://www.facebook.com/TheWoodBurningSavages/timeline - .

The Wood Burning Savages are The Most Amazing Live band I Have Seen All Year - bar none. End of." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music.

Their live performances have been a talking point - eclectic sets involving boneshaking vocals, fuzz guitar assaults and a rhythm section fed on a diet of TNT and whiskey mash. With an Armenian tour under their belts and a string of Ireland and UK festival appearances scheduled for the summer (including a prestigious performance slot on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury) audiences can be sure of great things as the band charge through 2014.

"One of my favourite tracks of 2014 tracks so far…We just sat there and we watched the guys absolutely slay it to a load of people in the BBC Introducing stage" - DJ Phil Taggart, BBC Radio 1, on the band's song 'America' and their performance at Glastonbury 2014.

"Great new band from the North" - Dave Fanning, RTE 2FM.

https://www.facebook.com/thredsband/timeline - Threds are an ever-growing group of musicians who draw on diverse musical experience and tradition to create their own original style. Their material consists of female and male resolute vocals, a stomping back line, classical offbeat grooves on the piano and bright inspirational lead guitar. They have a professional and conscientious attitude towards music composition and performance, and are currently rehearsing and recording professionally, aiming to perform the North West Circuit. Their eclectic style is hard to pinpoint falling somewhere between Indie, Punk and folk with Irish inflections. Threds like to showcase the talents and musicality of each of their individual band members. They have strong social ethics and conviction and believe that music can be used to initiate community and self-expression.

https://www.facebook.com/SulkingDutchmen/timeline Sulking Dutchmen are a rock band from England based randomly around Liverpool, Warrington, and Manchester. They harness the emotion of generations of sulking Dutchmen and attempt to turn this into something more joyous - maybe even something to jump around to. They are to rock music what Ryan Babel is to rap.

https://www.facebook.com/DDTliverpool?fref=ts DDT are a quirky Liverpool band who receive higher praise after every gig. With furious drumming, heavy bass lines, and layers of feedback blasting from the guitar amp, the trio combine noise and blues rock to be one of Liverpool's loudest bands. Mersey Radio's own Billy Kelly likened them to “a punkish Cream or Led Zeppelin”. Simply by having fun on stage they prove to be a very interesting live band, well worth seeing. Winning over crowds whenever they play, DDT reached the final of the prestigious Hunger Games competition back in May. Keep your eyes and ears open for the yelling and fuzz that is DDT!

£3OTD. All proceeds go to the artists. Doors at 8pm. Strictly 18+ only. Cellar bar open from 6pm

Lomax presents: 'Thee' Duke of Dark, Louise Turner, Ian McNabb (special guest appearance)

Lomax, Cumberland Street, Liverpool

 

'Thee' Duke of Dark Re-born in 2007 after years of failed attempts seeking his 'true-self' under another guise which yielded some fine material but inconsistent in vision and execution, 'Thee' Duke (title given by UK keyboard player-Parsley) hit his stride when he found complete solace in the works of Noel Engle (Scott Walker), and his many disciples (Bowie, Bush, Cave, Hannon etc.). Name change and musical direction firmly in grasp, he was now able to approach the art form without the need for 'compromise', and began exploring from 'untapped' resources, which led to a depth unknown to even himself. Realizing he wasn't Weller, Springsteen or even Sir Richard (as in Cliff), he now felt comfort in his own skin, and began to present his highly unique style in a manner rarely seen since the days of 'Bowie and Bush'. And this led to support slots for acts such as 'The Long Blondes', 'Everybody was in the French Resistance...now'!, and 'Theoretical Girl', as well as great support from highly regarded acts such as 'Art Brut', 'The Pipette's' and 'Camera Obscura'. "My songs are written for those who walk amongst the shadows fearing not truth but deception". The story continues... Description It's a visual Aesthetic, Theatrical and highly explicit. "I'd rather explore the depths of despair and conquer, than accept a fate assumed rather than challenged." https://www.facebook.com/TheeDukeofDark/info

Louise Turner This is Turner…Born and bred in Tamesides Audenshaw Turner was introuduced to the world with music cursung through her veins & even as a young girl was spoonfed delicious melodys from the greats such as Dusty Springfield, Scott Walker, Blondie, The Beach Boys to name but a few!

After moving up the road to Salford & a chance meeting with Guy Garvey at a recording studio Louise was asked to appear on the Mercury Prize-winning & platinum-selling album ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’ with Elbow from then on Turner made many Manchester Connections with even Peter Hook asking to jam sometime!

Salford-based Louise then teamed up with the successful "Art&Soul" band DC Fontana from 2012 to 2013, and enjoyed a busy action packed year gigging around the country Appearing at numerous venues including the 100 club London & Euro YeYe festival Spain and recievng fantastic reviews for the bands EP "Pentagram Man" which was produced by Julian Copes Guitarist Donald Ross Skinner & working closely with 60’s Legend Don Fardon.

She already enjoys a successful career as an in-demand session singer...& with a string of collabarations and guest appearances on tunes featuring Primal Screams Denise Johnson, Manc Poet and songwriter Edward Barton, Bluebird Kid Clark &The Electric Stars.

Indeed, her crystelise vocals and powerful lungs have appeared on numerous records but despite her prowess as a much sought-after studio singer this Salford Chanteuse decided to step out on her own with her Debut Mini Album “This is Turner”.

Turner has had an action packed year so far building her platform and becoming the first female solo artist to sign with respected indie label “Detour Records”.

The 6 track Album was produced by another respected Manchester face- Yves Altana ( The Chamelons/ I Am Kloot/ Mark Burgess) and showcases the many sides of Turner, all part of her vintage charm, one minute classic Dusty, the next epic Scott Walker style ballads & just for good measure a track that could easliy fit into the next Bond Film.

Ear Catching,eye catching and described as “One to watch” In John Robbs “Louder Than War” Turner invites you to sample her excellence in wistful melancholic joy. http://www.thisisturner.com/

Ian McNabb Needs no introduction at the Lomax... A special guest appearance in support of The Duke of Dark who is an old friend from the USA. http://www.ianmcnabb.com/

JEX THOTH, BLACK MAGICIAN, VOLITION, MIND MOUNTAIN

Lomax, Cumberland Street, Liverpool

 

JEX THOTH (Wisconsin, USA) [Psychedelic Rock/Doom Metal] https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jex-Thoth-Official Named after the band's striking female vocalist, Jex Thoth is a psychedelic rock / doom metal band from Madison, Wisconsin, USA. Heavy and thick in the spirit of Black Sabbath, brewed with the soul of Sabbath contemporaries like Amon Düül II, Witchcraft and Blue Öyster Cult. The classic song craft, weaving melodies, rich tones, and crushing drums will have even the most sober of listeners completely transfixed. Jex Thoth ride a delicate balance of sounding disturbingly fragile at times whilst laying some of the heaviest riffs this side of Electric Wizard, thanks both to the superbly deep bass sound and Jex's haunting vocal melodies. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uh6irmFRpGU

BLACK MAGICIAN [Doom Metal/Prog] https://www.facebook.com/Blackmagiciandoom Monolithic doom metal in the vein of Paul Chain and early Cathedral coupled with swirling Hammond organ and a more-than-generous pinch of seventies folk-prog eccentricity. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOJ1f00gyLU

VOLITION [Doom Metal] https://www.facebook.com/volition666 Notoriously heavy Cumbrian doom veterans. 'The Vastness Consumes Us' from their upcoming album on Total Rust music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc_8Po4Oo4U

Lomax present: Barb Wire Dolls

Lomax, Cumberland Street, Liverpool

 

We at the Lomax are excited to welcome back Barb Wire Dolls. Anyone who was at their last controlled explosion of a gig will be back I'm sure...

Barb Wire Dolls is a female-fronted street rock band based in Los Angeles, CA. The band is fronted by Isis Queen (vocals), with Pyn Doll (guitar), JayJay Doll (bass) and Krash Doll (drums). With all band members originally from Greece, Barb Wire Dolls formed at The Ikarus, a remote artist commune on the island of Crete. With Greece in a state of political turmoil and bankruptcy, fate and destiny intervened when Rodney Bingenheimer of L.A.'s KROQ - the first DJ to spin records in the U.S. by the Ramones, Blondie, Guns N' Roses, Nirvana - discovered the band and started playing the bands’ demo in heavy rotation. Bingenheimer invited the band to perform in Hollywood and within a few weeks Barb Wire Dolls sold everything they owned and moved to Venice Beach in Los Angeles. Surfing/skateboarding icon of Greece, Pyn Doll, put his professional surfing career on hold and something magical happened: “Grecian imports Barb Wire Dolls have taken The Sunset Strip by storm” writes the Roxy Theatre as their first show at the famed venue sold out. "Barb Wire Dolls are the most important punk invasion to the U.S. since the Sex Pistols" writes PMP as the band cemented their place at the top of the newly emerging L.A. punk scene by selling out and packing monthly residencies from the Viper Room, On The Rox, to the Doll Hut before heading out to conquer the rest of America. "In recent times it has seemed that popular rock music has lost a bit of its attitude, bands seem a bit soft, carefully treading along a musical path whereas new punk sensation Barb Wire Dolls have seem to tear the path apart, going against the grain, going against what is "Now", creating a new blueprint for the future of rock in the mainstream" - The Viper Room

“Every few years or so a band comes along that changes the music landscape. They are different from the other bands that are out there. They bring something new and exciting to an otherwise generic music scene that the public has grown tired of. The Beatles did this, The Sex Pistols did this, Guns N’ Roses did this, Nirvana did this. But for the past 20 years no band has been able to stand out from their predecessors. No band has been able to re-ignite the music scene, to bring back the energy it once had….that is until now. With their sound, their look and their attitude, Barb Wire Dolls are going to do what no band has been able to do within the last two decades…take the music industry by storm.” – Sugarbuzz magazine

Lomax presents: Michelle Shocked

Lomax, Cumberland Street, Liverpool

 

Stopping off at the Lomax on her first UK tour in three years this talented political, controversial, troubadour will shine in the deceptivly intimate setting of the Lomax

Michelle Shocked received her first international exposure in Europe, with her debut album, The Texas Campfire Tapes, a bootleg recorded around a festival campfire on a cassette recorder. Her U.S. debut came with the release of her 1988 album, Short Sharp Shocked on college radio rotations around the country, which was met with strong acclaim from listeners. The songs of Short Sharp Shocked are mostly about what it was like to grow up in rural Texas. Every song on this album is a gem. She signed with Mercury in 1987. Captain Swing, recorded in 1989, is almost perfect; the style is not exactly swing, because it's also rock and roll. Arkansas Traveler, recorded in 1992, is mainly bluegrass. Michelle recorded and distributed Kind Hearted Woman in 1994 herself after leaving Mercury. In 1995, she contributed an original song to the soundtrack for the film Dead Man Walking called "Quality of Mercy". In 1996, she released a studio version of an underground release Kind Hearted Woman. Starting in 2002 with the release of Deep Natural; Shocked established her own label, Mighty Sound. A 2005 trilogy called Threesome, and a 2007 bootleg of a gospel set called ToHeavenURide were followed In 2009 by her new album, Soul of My Soul, all released on Mighty Sound. Shocked continues to make music as an independent artist and currently lives in Downtown Los Angeles.
