+ The Blue Orchids + The Reverse Cowgirls + The Fnords
Stereo presents Birmingham's finest - The Nightingales, who are touring to celebrate the recent release of their new EP Become Not Becoming. The band are joined by The Blue Orchids (feat. Martin Bramah, founding member of The Fall), The Reverse Cowgirls, and The Fnords.
THE NIGHTINGALES, John Peel favourites, were invited for more sessions than any other band bar The Fall. Nightingales are a contemporary band now, releasing album's on Cooking Vinyl which made Mojo's Top 50 end of year albums ( http://yearendlists.com/2012/12/mojo-50-best-albums-of-2012/ ). They had a new album out in April 2015 on Louder At War Records, recorded at the great Faust Studios. With a worldwide LP/ CD release with a full 2015 UK / USA tour.
“The Nightingales play a uniquely indigenous, all-encompassing brand of working class rock ‘n’ roll. Beneath the Beefheart lurch and the Stooges stomp you can hear football chants and northern soul, blues and bluebeat, folk song and country and western; even music hall and Frank Sinatra. Filter this through mainman Robert Lloyd’s own experiences, observations, temperament and talent and you’ve got music that is as original as it is uncompromising.”
