The Southbound Attic Band
The Southbound Attic Band consists of Barry Jones, guitarist, singer-songwriter,and Ronnie Clark, bass and backing vocals. Their high energy live set is a combination of Americana, English and Celtic tinged folk rock. Their first full length CD, The Willows Suite (SAB2 2009) is a full musical suite of original songs, written by Barry, based around the book Wind In The Willows by Kenneth Grahame. The Willows Suite, which incorporates readings from the original text, followed by the song inspired by it, is also an hour long theatre piece which is suitable for all ages except the very young. To critical acclaim, the Southbound Attic Band performed The Willows Suite at Formby LittleTheatre for Formby Live 2010 and at the inaugural Liverpool Threshold Festival in 2011. Their second CD No More Tears (SAB3 2011) incorporated what have become their trademark songs, Howling at the Moon and Southbound Train as well as a tribute to their home city of Liverpool, City By The Bay, which featured as a you tube video http://youtu.be/eTMVeZXEwYAon a popular Liverpool Tourism Website. Their latest recording Living The Dream (SAB4 2012) which includes a song written by Ronnie Clark, followed the previous two by featuring in its own hour long edition of Radio Merseyside’s Folkscene programme with Stan Ambrose, and Radio Merseyside’s Billy Butler has also played music from the CD featuring Nostalgia Still Rules on his popular prime time show. In Americana-uk.com’s review Jeremy Searle described the CD as “Fine old school song-writing and playing... a hugely enjoyable listen.” FATEA webzine described it as “an album full of home truths delivered with a subtle wit and good honest humour.” And Tony Donaghey from LiverpoolBands.com said “great solid songwriting, every song had a proper tune - immediately hummable and often sing- a-longable.” The Southbound Attic Band are currently hosting a series of Acoustic Dustbowl events monthly at The View 2 Gallery, Mathew Street,Liverpool for Americana UK Promotions. CD’s are available from News From Nowhere, Bold St,Liverpool and Quicksilver Music, Market Street Southport or from Barry JonesThe Southbound Attic Band ×
UK based musician and poet Vinny Peculiar [aka Alan Wilkes] has been variously described as – ‘An under sung national treasure’ [UNCUT Magazine 2014] – a warm hearted Morrissey [Q Magazine 2014] and the missing link between Jarvis Cocker and Roger McGough [Irish Times 2014]. He’s released eleven albums of outsider pop music to great critical acclaim and a new album release ‘Down The Bright Stream’ on his own Shadrack & Duxbury Records comes out March 30th 2015. Vinny comes from the north Worcestershire village of Catshill and enjoyed a methodist upbringing. The music of the church was his first love but Glam Rock soon put an end to all that. After flunking formal education and spending an eternity on the dole he trained as a nurse working working in long stay hospitals and developing mental health services in the community. He ended a long standing relationship with the NHS some years ago in search of everything he’s still looking for. Much of Vinnys work is autobiographical, songs are remarkably candid, honest, witty and laugh aloud absurd and at the same time poignant and self effacing, you really need to hear them.×
