The evening will be kicked off by The Dead Reds the outlaw band with a very modern edge and powerful social commentary. They are a six piece band based in Brighton and Lewes who play all original dirty British blues, psych and rock and roll. Fresh from touring with the likes Alabama 3 and Cam Cole, they have just released their latest album, Circle Serpent, recorded Metway Studios at the end of last year and showcasing a broader sound both in genres and instrumentation. A very special piece of work, but it is thanks to their high-octane live shows that the Dead Reds have established themselves as a firm favourite of the Brighton music scene.
The people’s best friend and the councils worst enemy, The Gulls have taken an alternative, freewheeling approach to life. Living and traveling in their vans, they’ve built a loyal following across the UK and Europe through the impromptu, outdoor performances and crazy publicity stunts they set up .
As frontman Will Fairhead says, “It could be 3pm on Portsmouth beach or 3am outside the clubs in Glasgow, but when we start playing, anything could happen. Some of the stories from the last year alone… I’m quite amazed we haven’t been arrested or killed. When you do crazy things, crazy things happen to you.”
