Kick The Plug August 5th 2009 w/ 6 Day Riot + Mariners Children + Rowan Coupland


And so we’re back, from outer space… not really, just N16 but they’re both full of stars. Just the other day, I saw Tjinder Singh chatting with John Power on Church Street. Stellar.

Anyway, this month we have a headline set from Six Day Riot, which is incidentally what happened when we decided to take a month off. We have support from Mariners Children and Rowan Coupland.

6 Day Riot are aces:

“a great big, bouncy, cynic-defying barrel of fun” Word

“sunny harmonies, calypso beats, buoyant melodies and quirky lyrics. Unashamedly poppy and irrepressibly charming” NME

“Stealing beats and licks from all over the folk-pop globe, ukulele led acoustica bursting with a joyous Afro-Latin energy… recalling the post punk clatter of Bow Wow Wow with a side order of Vampire Weekend” Uncut

“Lush” Independent on Sunday

“Fin de siècle folk-pop.. splendid” The Times

“Woozy Folk-Pop, a glorious jamboree of sound and sentiment. Come join the parade.” Clash

“rich both lyrically and musically, an enchanting album” The Fly

“Think Los Campesinos crossed with Emmy the Great at an evangelical church meeting with a revolutionary political agenda” Artrocker

“Unashamedly poppy and unashamedly fun while touching on serious, almost cathartic issues makes for a fine, fine record.” 8/10, 405

“Fuzzy, expressive, eccentric earthy pop songs” The List
