Bandoramma/Club Velocity presents Little Red/Ocean Ruins/Jonathan Amphlett !!!All Will Be Well Records!!! Showcase Saturday October 21st 2016 Rising Sun Arts Centre 30 Silver Street Reading RG1 2ST 8pm All Ages
LITTLE RED A folk trio from the South of England, Little Red (Ian Mitchell, Ben Gosling and Hayley Bell) are a musical outfit inspired by Neil Young, PJ Harvey, First Aid Kit and Elliot Smith. They write and perform songs of a dark and playful wit with passion and sincerity.
Championed by the likes of BBC Introducing Berkshire, BBC Introducing Oxford.
Ocean Ruins are a melodic trio, with fierce vocals & 90's alt rock inspired guitars, their style has been likened to bands such as The Pixies, Wolf Alice, Yeah Yeah Yeahs & early PJ Harvey. Delicate melodies descend into bass fuzz distortion in a varied set blending grunge, indie rock & anthemic choruses. In 2015 the Berkshire band released their debut EP titled 'Hope' which found favour with BBC Introducing & they signed to Oxford indie label 'All Will Be Well Records' in January 2016.
Jonathan has been part of many successful Reading bands, including Johnny Arrow & The Cheap Day Returns, Sleep Room and Kicking Television and has supported the likes of Mark Morriss of the Bluetones, critically acclaimed band Everything Everything and Guardian favourites, Tuff Love.
He is now taking the whole blame for everything that he does as he strikes out on his own.
No shrinking bedroom troubadour, Jonathan Amphlett rips off the best bits of Josh Ritter, Courtney Barnett, Matt Berninger and Jeff Tweedy? lyrics that would make Hemmingway fire his shotgun in appreciation combined with an electric English country swing.
