Nottingham: Bob Mould

February 06, 2016 at Rescue Rooms in Nottingham.

Genre: Alternative Rock

For Fans Of: Husker Du, Sugar

Hometown: New York

About:

Guitarist/singer/songwriter Bob Mould was initially a member of Hüsker Dü, one of the most influential American bands of the ’80s. Hüsker Dü was a post-hardcore punk band that helped define the sound and ideals of alternative rock. After Hüsker Dü broke up, Mould signed a solo contract with Virgin Records in 1988. The following year he released his first solo album, Workbook, which represented a major shift in sonic direction. Workbook was an introspective collection, featuring keyboards, acoustic guitars, and even strings. The album received excellent reviews and spent 14 weeks on the charts, peaking at 127; “See a Little Light” became a Top Ten modern rock hit. Mould returned to loud, guitar-driven rock on his second solo album, 1990’s Black Sheets of Rain. Featuring the Top Ten modern rock hit “It’s Too Late,” Black Sheets of Rain received mixed reviews.

Frustrated with the business operations of major record labels, Mould left Virgin after the release of Black Sheets of Rain; they would later release a compilation of the two albums, Poison Years. Mould then formed an independent record company, SOL (Singles Only Label), which released 45s from new, developing bands as well as cult bands. In 1992, he formed a new trio, Sugar, with bassist David Barbe and drummer Malcolm Travis; the band signed with Rykodisc in the U.S. and Creation in the U.K. Sugar’s first album, Copper Blue, was released in the fall of 1992 to enthusiastic reviews and became Mould’s most successful project to date. Copper Blue nearly went gold and spawned several alternative radio and MTV hits, including “Helpless” and “If I Can’t Change Your Mind.” In the spring of 1993, Sugar released the mini-LP Beaster, a more abrasive collection than Copper Blue that was recorded at the same sessions. Around the time of the release of Beaster, Mould was forced out of the closet by various gay publications, with hopes that he would embrace their political cause; he rejected their requests.

Mould wrote the material for the second Sugar album during 1993. The band began recording in the spring of 1994, but the sessions ground to a halt and the tapes were erased. Mould decided to give the album one more try, and it was recorded quickly late that spring. The album, File Under: Easy Listening, appeared in the fall of 1994. Although it received good reviews and was moderately successful commercially, it didn’t match the performance of Copper Blue. In the spring of 1995, it was announced that Sugar was on hiatus. Besides, a collection of rarities and B-sides, was released that summer. By the fall, Mould had broken up the band and begun to work on a third album entirely by himself. Mould played all of the instruments on his self-titled third album, which was released in the spring of 1996. The Last Dog and Pony Show followed in 1998. In 2002, after a long period of musical inactivity, Mould returned with the electronics-heavy Modulate, followed by the more conventional Body of Song in 2005. After Blowoff, a dance project with Richard Morel, Mould returned to his guitar roots and paired up with Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty to record District Line in 2008.

Mould inched back to alt-rock on 2009’s Life and Times, then devoted himself to writing his autobiography with the assistance of Michael Azerrad. See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody was published in the summer of 2011. The following year, Mould returned to the sound of Sugar, playing the band’s 1992 debut in its entirety while on tour, reissuing the band’s catalog as deluxe editions, and, finally, reviving its sound on Silver Age, his first album for Merge Records. Silver Age was greeted by strong reviews, as was its 2014 successor, Beauty & Ruin, which also appeared on Merge.

Nottingham: Minus The Bear

January 27, 2016 at Rescue Rooms in Nottingham.

Genre: Indie rock

About: When the members of Minus the Bear first convened in a dingy practice space in 2001, there were few expectations for the project other than providing a reason for the five drinking buddies to hang out, have a few laughs, and write some idiosyncratic pop songs. Seattle had just closed out a decade of living in a cultural spotlight due to their city’s penchant for loud, earnest, brooding rock music, and the guys in Minus the Bear seemed to take pleasure in writing songs that were the antithesis to the ‘90s heavy- handed big-riff gloom. All the members had done their time pedaling angst and frustration in other music projects, so it seemed to make sense to offset that vitriol with cerebral pop songs. Their debut EP, This Is What I Know About Being Gigantic, with it’s nimble guitar work, observational lyrics, complex hooks, and four-on-the-floor dance beats, proved to be a breath of fresh air in a city that lived under a bank of black clouds nine months out of the year.
Over the course of the next four years, Minus the Bear demonstrated that they were more than just some flashy playful indie pop act. Sure, their first full-length album Highly Refined Pirates still displayed some levity in its aesthetics, as if the band was one-degree removed from the often overly serious indie rock world, but the frivolous elements of the band belied their forward-thinking instrumentation, razor-sharp chops, and forthright lyrical vignettes. Even still, the band were on a mission to shed the remaining vestiges of their whimsy when they released their sophomore album Menos el Oso in the late summer of 2005. The lush, intricate two-handed tapping guitar lines that defined their early work were replaced with glitchy guitar samples and effects pedal manipulations. The big, boomy room sounds of their previous records were ditched in favor of air-tight, in-your-face drum tones. Their melodies took a turn toward minor keys. Even their lyrics seemed to hint that the late night parties and escapes from the city described on their past records were now tainted by some hard life lessons. Minus the Bear had always taken their craft seriously, but Menos el Oso was their first record where the overall tone of the album matched the stern discipline of their musicianship. It was a bit of a gamble to follow up the buoyant guitar gymnastics of their debut album with a full-length that throbbed with staccato riffs, sepia-toned lyrics, and an almost electronic pulse. But it wound up being a pivotal album in Minus the Bear’s trajectory. Not only did Menos el Oso propel the band to bigger audiences, it set a precedent for the band’s future fearlessness in exploring new sonic frontiers. To commemorate this landmark album, Suicide Squeeze is offering a 10-year anniversary vinyl edition of Menos el Oso. The LP is being repressed in a gatefold jacket with a matte finish and UV gloss. It includes a printed inner sleeve with expanded liner notes about the creation of the record provided by longtime friend of the band Brian Cook (Russian Circles, These Arms Are Snakes) and includes quotes and insights from the members themselves. The 10-year anniversary edition of Menos el Oso has a limited first pressing of three thousand copies (1k on clear vinyl with a green high melt, 1k on yellow marble, and 1k on clear). This is the first time the album is available on colored vinyl and the first time the LP has included a download card. The 10-year anniversary edition of Menos el Oso will be available worldwide from Suicide Squeeze Records on December 4, 2015.
Minus the Bear is Jake Snider (vocals, guitar), David Knudson (guitar), Cory Murchy (bass) and Alex Rose (keyboards, saxophone, vocals, programming).

Nottingham: The Running Horse Presents Maniere Des Bohemiens, The Long Intros, Secret Special Guest And More

January 15, 2016 at The Running Horse in Nottingham.

THE RUNNING HORSE PRESENTS
*****************************************

MANIERE DES BOHEMIENS – 10:45 – 11:20

Manière des Bohémiens play energetic and improvised Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli influenced Gypsy Jazz and Eastern European swing. They are the most debauched, ecstatic and downright amazing live band you will have seen for a long while.

Gypsy jazz played with the jaunty abandon of a misspent youth and a broken heart arranged for 5 young virtuoso musicians who travel around playing the violin, guitar, sax and double bass whilst dipping in and out of Parisian alleyways and absorbing pieces of the colourful lives they meet along the way. They have been entertaining the folks of Nottingham and far beyond for many years with their infectious blend of improvised, manouche jazz and rough-edged, virtuosic eastern-european gypsy-folk music.

Manière des Bohémiens’ current line-up of Rob Rosa – Violin, Roger Rosa & Rob Coates – Guitars, Peter Beardsworth – Sax, Matt Marks – Accordion and Mark Houlgate/Catherine Jones – Bass have now collectively played over 250 shows which has created a tight, energetic sound which has made people get up on their feet up and down the land. This year was another huge step forwards for the band with a clutch of festival appearances including Southwell Folk, Port Eliot Literary Festival, Hay-onWye Festival, City of London Festival, Galtres Festival, Camp Bestival, the Tatton Flower Show and ending with 3 shows at Bestival on the Isle of Wight. They’ve also appeared at Summer Sundae, Matt & Phreds, Kendal Calling, Limetree, Headstock, Larmer Tree, Towesey Folk and Fire in the Mountain to name a few. They are regularly the headline act at their hometown Nottingham gigs and have also had support slots for Jools Holland, Polar Bear and Quantic. They’ve been played on 6 music several times and have been included on Tom Robinson’s ‘best of Introducing’ podcast.

Nottingham: Dua Lipa (live at Stealth)

January 30, 2016 at Rescue Rooms in Nottingham.

Genre: Dark pop

For Fans Of: Lana Del Rey, FKA Twigs

About: From her BBC Sound of 2016 Profile –

Smoky of voice and sultry of photo, Dua Lupa looks and sounds like a pop star in waiting.

Born in London to Kosovar-Albanian parents, she was raised on David Bowie and Bob Dylan – but the first album she bought was by Canadian pop magpie Nelly Furtado.

As a child, Lipa attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School until, aged 13, her father’s job took the family back to Kosovo.

She lasted two years before persuading her parents to let her move back to the UK to pursue a singing career.

Living with friends, she worked in clubs to make ends meet – the darker side of London’s nightlife inspiring her early lyrics – before scoring a modelling contract with Next Management.

Her first original songs were uploaded to SoundCloud in 2012, drawing the attention of Lana Del Rey’s managers, who signed her up and set her to work with Emile Haynie (Eminem, Bruno Mars and, naturally, Lana Del Rey).

The result is an off-kilter, it-girl sound, powered by Lipa’s deep, resonant voice; one that’s a world away from the thinly auto-tuned sound of most radio-bound pop.
