Dave Sutherland is a London based singer songwriter who, this year, is celebrating his 20-year Anniversary in the music business. The last 2 decades have seen Dave hone his acoustic Americana style by serving his apprenticeship in the early 90’s under Bert Jansch, tour the UK and America, and release 6 albums with the latter – “On the Waiting List” – reaching No.1 on the US Americana play list. It’s also on the current BBC Radio London playlist. His songwriting and finger style guitar have enabled him to share the stage with many acts including Bert Jansch, Billy Ray Cyrus, Glenn Tilbrook, Van Morrison and Bob Dylan.

Biography
Blind Dead McJones was never a fan of being in the spotlight, no number 1 singles, cheesy videos or appearances on celebrity cooking programmes. A true Bluesman in every sense of the word, living a life on the road shrouded in mystery. Some say he died years ago in an agriculture related accident, some say he is part of the keyzer soze family and some say he now makes Halloween costumes for dogs. One thing we know for sure is he is responsible for bringing together the blues rock behemoth that is The Blind Dead McJones Band.

Back in 2008 McJones was a lost and tortured soul, wandering the earth just like Kane in Kung Fu. Battling with his demons and struggling to keep going through the Hell that is the music business. All he needed was a friendly face, a pack of smokes and something to help him once again shake the earth to its very core, bring grown men to tears, turn sophisticated women once again into sreaming schoolgirls, and well and truly cement his place alongside the Gods.

He found all this and more when he met…

“The Boys”!

Attila Vural at Northern Guitar

Oct 10, 8:00pm - Oct 10, 11:00pm

Northern Guitars Cafe Bar
41 Call Lane
Leeds,  LS1 7BT Map

NOT WITHOUT MY GUITAR
His baggage tells it all:
while others wouldn’t ever travel without taking their umbrella – as you never know what the weather may be like – and while many wouldn’t break up without a suitable evening dress – as you never know, which party you will involved in – you will never see Attila Vural leaving home without his guitar: as you never know which melody is going to cross your path.

No need to say that his music sounds like a big suitcase full of lovely holiday memories – yet those are no fancy city day-trips, nor are they sailing adventures giving illusions of a pink painted moon-shine romance. The 1972 born guitarist, currently living in Zurich, Switzerland, rather tells us about journeys undertaken with eyes and hearts wide open, during which the musician is inspired by a touch of Latin American rhythm, tonalities from good old Jazz, and sober melodies close to straightforward Pop.

Since his very first arrangements, dating back to the early nineties, a creative mixture of influences characterizes the music written by Attila Vural. This mixture inspired both Vural’s own interpretations and the style of the various formations that played his compositions (Saf-Inütill, Approaches). Furthermore, Vural’s percussive mode of guitar playing is inspired very particularly by the German guitarist Claus Boesser-Ferrari. Other important inputs came from the experimental pieces by Heitor Teixeira Pereira.

In 1997, it was Dominic Miller’s CD «First Touch» that led him to focus increasingly on his solo guitar endeavor. Ten years ago, he decided to consecrate his passion entirely to the single guitar. He plays six- and twelve-string instruments and counts since recently on the support of a special edition 15-string guitar - a Semi Fretless Nylon String Uke-Guitar (guitar facture: Arns & Kallenbach).

Join Attila Vural’s guitar and embark on a trip into the world of musical encounters. Twelve Solo-CD’s are available to invite you there – «A handful of Thoughts» (2004), «Painting a Reverie» (2007), «Some Place Of Sounding» (2009), «the Last Laugh» (2010), «Something Plays Like a Child» (2012), «According Outside my Room» (2014), «Moonbeams Rise as Quavers» (2015), «Another Strumming in the Blue», «With Dom at the Meeting Point - A Tribute to Dominic Miller» (2016), «the Ten Hour of Delight» (2017), «Encounters at the Riviera» (2018) and, coming soon, «Harmonized but Different» (2019). On many occasions, Attila Vural also performs live on stage: recently, he appeared not only nationwide in Switzerland, but also in the USA, in the European Acoustic Guitar Night at Rome’s Theatre Goethe- Institute, the “Open-Strings” Guitar Festival in Osnabruck, Germany and the International Festival Neuotting also in Germany. Among other things he plays the live soundtracks for the silent movies «the Last Laugh» and «Nosferatu» by F.W. Murnau which he played on the Music Festival in Winterthur and Neisse Film Festival in Gorlitz (D) too.

Whether you join him live or on CD: A musical journey with Attila Vural will take you to places that you would not have thought a solo guitar may discover.

The Banquets at Northern Guitarz

Oct 24, 8:00pm - Oct 24, 11:00pm

Northern Guitars Cafe Bar
41 Call Lane
Leeds,  LS1 7BT Map

While Banquets’ debut 7", 2010's This Is Our Concern, Dude, was well-received and showed off a wealth of potential, the band’s first full length, Top Button, Bottom Shelf, blows all expectations and pre-conceived notions out of the water. Sometimes a band comes along and is able to cut directly through all the bullshit. Banquets do just that on Top Button, Bottom Shelf. The band catches your attention right from the start with a sense of urgency and a call to arms that is palpable.

The ten songs that make up the Top Button, Bottom Shelf build and hold the momentum for an incredibly rewarding and all too short 25 minutes. Waiting for some lull or filler to catch your breath is fruitless as the band delivers gem after gem. Banquets’ refreshing take on melodic punk rock truly transcends any limitations of the genre. Of course you can talk of the band’s pedigree, Banquets lead singer Travis Omilian was the original singer for Let Me Run and other members have played in bands such as Outsmarting Simon, Static Radio NJ, The Stand In and The Banner, but all that undersells just how quickly Banquets have grown into their very own exciting entity.

Top Button, Bottom Shelf burns with passion and desperation as Banquets are searching for clarity amidst all the confusion of the world. These are songs about the frustrations of love & life told through weathered eyes and battered hearts. Yet there is an aching hopefulness for something real still to come.

Deeply rooted in traditional country and mountain music but presented with an edgier punk-energy, switching from guitar to banjo, "Rye Whisky" was a standout from their soon to be released self-titled debut on April, 12.

Ready Steady Rock!
Ripper Rattle Rock!
Snakerattlers is a Dirty Water Records band, comprising of married couple Dan and Naomi. It's a hellbound voyage of trash rock and roll, punk potency and fragments of the oldest, dustiest rockabilly. Those genres combine to make the band's own frenzied and furious take on music, known as Rattlerock. The sound of Snakerattlers is acerbic, ruthless, erratic and uncompromising. The band hails from the deepest, darkest depths of ghost-ridden York, in the heart of North Yorkshire, England.

Biography
"If Elvis had been a Marx Brother, he would have invented Pink Peg Slax" (James Brown, NME) "Plangent, Cajun-tinged Jiveabilly" (John Peel) With a name derived from an obscure Eddie Cochran rocker, Pink Peg Slax promise rockabilly revivalism, but these veterans of the Leeds 80s music scene want you to feel the power of rock but grin while you're at it. Borne out of punk and inspired by Glam, the Slax line-up were original members of the Mekons, the Sisters of Mercy and The Gang of Four. Celebrated by John Peel and Andy Kershaw (4 Radio 1 sessions), the NME (3 singles and 2 albums gained 5-star reviews) and TV chef Keith Floyd (who wrote sleeve notes) Pink Peg Slax knocked out 100% original tunes with a deft rockabilly-cajun approach. Pink Peg Slax provided the necessary knowing wink to counter the gothic scowl on the face of indie music in the mid-80s. The Smiths released Meat Is Murder; the Slax released Eat More Meat. The only band ever to offer James Cagney impressions as serious musical output on night-time Radio One, Pink Peg Slax busked their way onto C4's The Tube, annoyed legions of Goths by supporting The Mission on tour and wrote songs about drunken pigs, deaf railwaymen, murderous Frenchmen and Holsten Pils. Frontman Vince Berkeley once thanked an audience of fairground workers for not being "gippos", told an indifferent audience in Dusseldorf to "go away and make some chemicals" and if spat on by the audience, would spit back. And yet the band's Roman Catholicism led to album reviews in The Universe, the premier UK religious weekly.And now Pink Peg Slax have re-grouped, discovered Facebook and some of them have retained their hair.

The Zanibar Aliens are four piece rock band based in Portugal, Lisbon. Their sound reminds you of the classic rock’n’roll bands from the 70’s but mixed up with some other interesting elements like classical music and jazz.
Carl Karlsson ( lead vocals, keyboards) and Filipe Karlsson (guitar, vocals) are the swedish part of the band. Diogo Braga (drums) and Ricardo Pereira (bass) are the Portuguese part. The band released their first songs online in 2012 and their first demo album “Zanibar Aliens I” which was only available online with no physical format. Their first official album was released in 2015, titled “Bela Vista”, it was recorded in Namouche Studios Lisbon, this one being available online and in the CD format. Since then, the band has played some major festivals in Portugal, such as NOS Alive, Vodafone Paredes de Coura and EDP Vilar de Mouros. In 2017 they drove all the way to England to record their second album titled “Space Pigeon”, which was recorded in only two days at Factory Road Studios in Eastleigh. Later on they took their 1989 Ford transit to go on their first legit European tour. In 2019 "Zanibar Aliens III" is released, this is the band's third studio album, it was recorded in three different locations but most of it was done in their studio at home. This album features their classic rock n' roll sound that band is known for but introducing some new ideas to mix like bossa nova and samba, which you can hear right away in the opening track "All i need is you".

Brodie Milner wears his songs like an ill fitted suit. Combining intelligent lyricism with intricate melodies, his music feels nuanced, evocative, and a bit too sad for a summer's party. Listeners can expect to hear influences from the likes of John Martyn, Sharon Van Etten, and some old novelists you might not have heard of.
