Final Sumo Kings gig

The Sumo Kings were never off local music stages in 2008 and 2009 but follwing quieter times, have sadly decided to call it a day.

Chris Farrington (bass guitar/vocals), Steve Foster (guitar/laptop) and Jamie Oliver (drums) will make their final appearance at Square One in Mill Street, Crewe.

Also playing on the night, are Inuendo, Blunderbuss Benefit. Plus former manager, Richard Barclay will be DJing under his Rodeo Terrorists guise.

Farrington, 28, said: “We wanted all the people who helped us out over the years to be involved in this.

It had been hoped that former bassist Adam Davies would make a come-back for the farewell but Blunderbuss’ Sam Boulton will fill on bass duties on some of the older tunes.

I’m giving you plenty of advance on this one as I’ll know you’ll want to clear your schedule and make sure you’re there. Or is that just me? I’ll be the one in the black armbands crying.

Another shameless lift from the Facebook page I’m afraid, but it does seem a waste to retype the same info!

Acoustic Addiction – Thurs 19th May – BlueYellows

Acoustic Addiction No. 5 features The BlueYellows.

They’re a 4-piece band from Sandbach, who create original music which is intense, melancholic, uplifting, quirky, passionate and unique. With influences as diverse folk, metal, funk and grunge, the band have no interest in following the path or style of others, even if they stand on the shoulders of those bands and artists they love.

Compared with bands as diverse as The Pixies, The Dandy Warhols, Arcade Fire and James, their sound has been described as grunge/folk which is perhaps a reasonable pigeonhole when labels are unavoidable. 

This is a free gig, starting at 9pm.

Jason Johnston to play the next Acoustic Addiction night

Coming to The Imp, Edleston Road,  Crewe on Thursday 21st April:

This third Acoustic Addiction gig features the fabulous Stalybridge-based singer/songwriter Jason Johnston.  Once described as a male Taylor Swift, with a flavour of Damien Rice and some say a English Dave Matthews Band.

Jason’s new studio album, ‘A Tale of Two Halves‘, is a collection of his new songs which talks about loss, love, life and a observation of the world around him.  It has received rave reviews in the music press, including being rated at 4 out of 5 by Leopold Sprout of ’That New Sound’ magazine who said “Character + individuality + technical ability + charm = Jason Johnson”.

Acoustic Addiction is a FREE gig and it starts at 9pm.
