The Lost Souls at Northern Guitars

The Lost Souls at Northern Guitars

May 26, 2:00pm - May 26, 4:00pm

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

The Lost Souls are a two piece (guitar/bass) band playing mostly original material along with the odd Clash, Joy Division, Gang of Four cover. Some describe them as ‘Post Punk’. That’s quite a broad brush but seeing as they are both self confessed old punk rockers who still like to rattle out spirited 3 minute wonders, it fits well enough. They keep things simple but effective. No twiddly guitar solos or overblown effects but plenty beat through their drum machine, bass rhythm and guitar drive. Brooding dark wave numbers fit alongside infectious punk rattlers all performed with feeling, drawing an audience in with subtle stage craft and excellent vocal arrangements.

Pink Peg Slax Live at Northern Guitars

Pink Peg Slax Live at Northern Guitars

Jun 1, 9:00pm - Jun 2, 12:00am

Northern Guitars Cafe Bar
41 Call Lane
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.

Snakerattlers / Hell Fire Jack Live at Northern Guitars

Jun 7, 9:00pm - Jun 8, 12:00am

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

Snakerattlers is a Dirty Water Records band, comprising of married couple Dan and Naomi. It's a hellbound voyage of rockabilly, garage, trash and traditional gum-chewing greaser rock and roll. The music is delivered with ruthless venom and intense bursts of raw, erratic power. The band hails from the deepest, darkest depths of ghost-ridden York, in the heart of North Yorkshire, England. Since it's inception in 2016, Snakerattlers have carved themselves an intimidating and devastating live performance. Their sound will refresh your beliefs on what a two-piece band can be, as the sound that is produced by Snakerattlers is gargantuan and vast. It has to be experienced in the flesh in order to be completely believed. Watch them perform live if you dare.

"Immediate, scary and energising" - Louder Than War

"One of the UK's most dynamic acts" - The 13th Floor

"The punk and rock scenes should keep a close eye on Snakerattlers" - Spill Magazine

They're back!

An Old School feel with a new twist.

Formed in 2012 when Darnell “Big D” Cole, Nathalie "Wildfire" Campos met after college, the two formed the band and performed as a two piece. Two years later, the Duo went to an open jam and decided it was time to add bass. Shortly after, they met Jacob Lucero. The youngest of the trio, he earned the moniker "The Kidd", but his skill proved to be well beyond his years, and after a single practice, Porcelain Hill was Solidified.

Afternoon Americana
41 call lane
Leeds,  LS1 7BT Map

Influenced by the sounds of 1960’s folk guitar, progressive rock and modal jazz, Henry Parker creates a modern sound from these archaic influences, writing songs that lyrically entwine landscapes, people and politics. Traditional folk music contributes strongly to his sound, whilst a distinctive finger-picked guitar style calls to mind players as diverse as Bert Jansch and Bill Frisell.

Over the past four years that Henry has been performing live he has had the privilege of supporting many of his musical heroes including Wizz Jones, Michael Chapman, Bridget St John, Lau and Soft Machine. This cross over of folk and progressive rock is where much of his influence lies, informing his writing style and guitar playing.

His debut album Silent Spring is set for release in July 2019, recorded by David Crickmore (Steve Tilston, Pete Coe) and featuring the phenomenal flute talents of Theo Travis (Soft Machine, Travis & Fripp, Gong). It is set to be one of the most exciting folk debuts of this year.


“Henry Parker has a beautifully clear and precise finger picking acoustic guitar style...this isn't background folk club music, or filler, it's quite simply gorgeous.” - FATEA

"A gifted young guitar player who has been impressing local audiences with his dexterity and choice of material" - Tykes New

“A really excellent young guitarist/ songwriter” - Steve Tilston

“Bloody excellent” - Wizz Jones

The Harriets at Northern guitars

Jun 28, 9:00pm - Jun 28, 11:00pm

41 Call Lane
Leeds,  LS1 7BT Map

The Harriets are Daniel-Parker Smith (guitar and other instruments, baritone vocals, jawline) and Ben Schrodel (bass and other instruments, tenor vocals, Roman nose).

​They met at a party in Leeds when they were banging on about Tom Petty and Paul McCartney respectively, and they’ve not found a good reason to stop since. Both songwriters that were in search of a band, they formed The Harriets as a means of collaborating on existing tunes and continuing to write more.

The Harriets sound features the bright and distinctive vocal harmonies of its two frontmen, and jangly retro-inspired guitar work. The band has played many gigs in its native Yorkshire as well as the International Pop Overthrow Festival in Liverpool's Cavern Club. They are also on the line-up for Bingley Music Live Festival in September 2017, alongside acts such as The Manic Street Preachers and the Kaiser Chiefs.

As well as honing their live show gigging, the pair work on regularly releasing self-produced singles, allowing them to give an airing to the more diverse material in their songbook. These have recently received airplay on Tom Robinson’s Mixtape on BBC 6 Music, and won funding and support from Higher Rhythm’s Breakthrough programme after being selected by a panel of industry experts. ​
