G E Banfield is releasing her first literary novel, All The Little Birds, through Pegasus publishers and will be celebrating this occasion at Northern Guitars. Expect readings from the book, copies available for purchase and live music from the very gifted Joseph Moore. The event is free entry. ... Read more about G E Banfield and the book below! G E Banfield has been a fledgling poet, unknown contemporary dancer and romantic dreamer. It was when her English teacher encouraged her to write creatively that she became a true believer of dreams. After studying English Literature and Language, Dance and Performing Arts, then a Teaching degree she drifted and found herself writing poetry but only through transient living did she realise themes of loss, love, isolation, dream and mystery has been the ink that steadily spills from her pen. All the Little Birds is her first literary novel. All The Little Birds is a book that teems with imagery, darkness, secrets, wonder and the loss of childhood innocence, set in the backdrop of racial tensions dividing London through 1970's and early 1980's England. Within her world of lyrical content, spirit ancestors, fantastically stories and mystery, we meet young Mary who tries to manage the familiar and unfamiliar taking place in her life and home. Told through a realism that includes passages of light, hope and an emotional torrent of circumstance, we learn what it is to be a child venturing through the world, lost, confused, lonely and in need of the warm arms of love that keeps us from falling too deep into our own heads of turmoil and trauma.

THE 4 OF US are one of the most acclaimed bands in Ireland, having been a steadfast part of Irish music history for over 25 years. Blending contemporary roots with rock, the award-winning band was formed by brothers Brendan and Declan Murphy from the border town of Newry in Northern Ireland. Their truly unique sound has garnered a large and loyal fan base and an enviable catalogue of timeless songs, including six Top 20 Irish charting albums and several hit singles. Regulars on Irish radio playlists, their music has also been featured extensively on American, UK, and Irish TV soundtracks. THE 4 OF US shot to early fame towards the end of 1989 with their debut Songs for the Tempted, which featured the massive hits Mary and Drag My Bad Name Down. The follow-up Man Alive made Q magazine's prestigious Top 50 Albums of 1992 and included the UK Top 30 song She Hits Me. Sugar Island, their latest album, explores the Murphy brothers' early years growing up in a border town during the height of the troubles in Northern Ireland.

Leeds,  LS1 7BT Map

We are happy to welcome back the mighty Pink Peg Slax to Northern Guitars. Pink Peg Slax have been writing, recording and performing literate, original rockabilly more or less constantly since June 1980. The original line-up included the Mekons’ Jon Langford. The Slax went on to record 3 John Peel sessions and the records received 5-star reviews in the 80s music press. Ever-earlier day-time Radio One airplay did not deliver the success it promised, but the Slax have pressed-on. In 2012 they released a best-of CD Rock-A-Beery Boogie and later in 2018 they will release an EP titled Ear-Busting Twang. The Pink Peg Slax approach to original music is part camp pastiche and part dedicated homage to Sun Session country and rockabilly, with Cajun fiddle and Hank Williams regret poking its nose in. Though we throw in Elvis favourites in the live shows, the songs are studded with literary references and the trinity of Slax obsessions: death, decay and the consequences of drink.
