Black Rabbit Productions & TLF Presents: The Original John Rossall Glitter Band

The Glitter Band were without doubt one of the most popular and influential exponents of the 1970’s Glam Rock phenomena. Formed by John Rossall in 1972 from the embers of the highly successful Boston International, the Glitter Band released their debut single “Angel Face” on Bell Records in April 1974, reaching number 4 in the UK Charts. Further singles followed with “Just For You” (number 10) and “Let’s Get Together Again” (number 8) the same year, leading to the release of “Hey!”, the definitive Glitter Band and Glam Rock album. The band’s biggest hit, “Goodbye My Love” made the UK number 2 position early in 1975. All of these huge Glitter Band hits are John Rossall compositions.

Leaving the band for a Solo career in 1975, John Rossall released a number of solo singles before relocating to Sweden, where he enjoyed considerable success. Returning to the UK in the early 90s with a new band line up, John quickly established himself as a major attraction on the European revival circuit and has toured continually ever since, performing alongside some of the biggest names of the Glam Rock era. 2019 marks the 45th Anniversary of “Angel Face”, “Just For You” and “Let’s Get Together Again”. The Original John Rossall Glitter Band features founder member John Rossall on lead vocals, Bob Bradbury on Guitar, Dave Glover on Bass, Corrie Shiells on Sax and Jake Bradbury on Drums.

UnderCover2020web

Best known for his high energy full band shows, it is something of a rare treat to catch Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, giving an intimate solo performance. It offers an opportunity to hear the songs in their rawest form, up close and personal, and to really connect with the lyrics and the performer. One of Billy’s biggest strengths is the way he manages to pack his songs full of political and social commentary whilst at the same time remaining playful and uplifting, and this playfulness is even more apparent in an acoustic setting. Covering topics from fake news, internet privacy and the U.S. election, to nappy wearing barristers and best friends trying to snog your mum, his performance takes you on a rollercoaster of storytelling and thought provoking protest pieces.

MadProfessor2020

Global Beats Presents: Mad Professor Live Dub Show. Support by Sir Coxsone Outernational Sound with Lloyd Coxsone

He might be called MAD PROFESSOR, but he is one of the sanest working musicians around. In his long and accomplished career, this globally acclaimed dub talent has amassed a fine discography that includes many cult albums. He has also worked with the likes of Johnny Clarke and Mikey Dread, Reggae Regular and Ruts DC, all of whom are legends in their own right. Right back in the 80s did Mad Professor build his own first mixing desk and he soon began working with the Ariwa Studio and label on a 12 part album series Dub Me Crazy. With new instalments coming each year, they helped establish the Londoner as a real master of the mix, of echo and reverb, of spacious rhythms and dub attitude.

His crazy use of sound effects and clarity of mixing won him many fans and plaudits, and remixes of acts like The Orb, Beats International, Sade and 400 Blows all followed. And of course so did live shows, which took the Mad Professor to high profile gigs all over North America, Europe, Japan and many places in between. High profile remix work on Massive Attack’s seminal Protection album helped elevate him yet further, and the new century brought with it many more big releases for his Ariwa label, which eventually went on to distribute more than 200 releases in all. Still in demand for shows and studio work, Mad Professor plays cult events like Unsound and Outlook Festival in Croatia and works with the likes of Lee Scratch Perry, U Roy, BigYouth and many more on his ever excellent label.

The legendary UK soundman & record producer, LLOYD COXSONE, began his career in the sixties, soon after arriving from Jamaica. He was one of the first soundmen to play at West End clubs like Tiles and the Roaring Twenties, where a generation of British pop stars like the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Elton John first heard the music of Jamaica. Coxsone then dominated the seventies, when Bob Marley and Dennis Brown were among his closest allies, as heard on unforgettable dub-plates from that era. Lloyd is an elder statesman with more than fifty years’ history behind him, but he knows there’s still a place in the music for those who are young at heart and willing to embrace change.

JFairhurst2020

Solo tour March 2020! 

John Fairhurst has spent the majority of his life travelling the world and playing music, meeting innumerable characters, collecting stories and drawing influence and inspiration from the varied musical styles and first hand experiences of a life on the road.

Hailed by Acoustic Guitar Magazine USA as one of the Top Resonator guitar players worldwide, John has released 5 albums over the last 10 years as both a solo artist and with his full electric band. ‘The Divided Kingdom’, was released in April 2019 to international critical acclaim.

John Fairhurst makes heavy blues for heavy times. In equal parts revealing, vulgar, cathartic and thrilling, the virtuoso guitarist is channelling the discontent felt in the western world to pay tribute to – and to update – the very idea of rock n roll as protest music. “I feel that as an artist, I myself am duty bound to comment upon the times in which we live. Rather than avoid the topics of the day, I have decided to face them head on.”

From back alley Bangkok bars to international festival main stages, from the jungles of Panama, the streets of New York to a wide range of venues and podiums across Europe and beyond. From performances and tuition both formal and informal with blues greats, Moroccan gnaoua musicians, Indian Sarod masters and Spanish rock bands, Johns music continues expand from its blues basis.

A new album is currently in production for release in 2020. Its contents currently remain a secret, although it is rumoured to draw deeply from the rich and varied melting-pot of Johns musical and life experiences. He is not here to mince his words, expect the record to be raw and honest.

John Fairhurst remains probably the only performer ever to have played every single Glastonbury Festival Main Stage in one single day.... At 6am with a battery amplifier.

JakeMorrell2020web

Modern Age Music is pleased to present: Jake Morrell   

Jake Morrell could have come straight out of Nashville, or even from the Californian sunshine, as his music suggests; but Jake is from Norfolk, England!


Jake was ‘discovered’ by Dermot O’Leary, who featured him on his Radio 2 Show. One influential listener just so happened to be Glastonbury boss Emily Eavis, who immediately asked Jake to perform at the iconic festival.

Jake recorded his debut single with London based producer Brett Shaw (Florence & The Machine, The Kooks & Dry the River). The song entitled "Wire and Thorns" reached No.2 in the iTunes country charts on the first day of release.
 This led to Jake being invited to perform at this year’s Country 2 Country festival, where he premiered his first major single, the appropriately titled ‘Englishman (Trying to Write a Country Song)’ – written with the Grammy-winning writer/producer Kipper. 


The reaction to the song put Jake firmly in line as one of the country’s favourite new male artists in the genre.This lead to a string of both solo and band shows and festivals throughout the summer with Jake showing himself to be as irresistible as a solo act as he is with his band.

The most exciting new development, however, is the new music that Jake has now recorded to launch the next phase of his career. This is led by a joyous forthcoming single, ‘Home’, written and produced with Rolling Stones keyboardist, Matt Clifford. With an evocative mix of Mumford & Sons, Eagles and even Springsteen, ‘Home’ is the definitive track that firmly stamps Jake Morrell’s name across the UK country music scene. With a gig history that reads like a road atlas, Jake and the band have truly honed their craft and always leave you feeling joyous and wanting more!

The style is a fusion: rock and folk influences mingle with West-Coast sounds and even a hint of Prog !

The result is startlingly original and strongly melodic songs - for both the mind and body.

The Doctors are: Paul Stenner (Vocals, Electric Guitar, Harmonica) - David Bott (Keyboards, BVs) - Steve Harrison (Bass Guitar) &  Tom Andrews (Drums, BVs)

The band recently released their debut album: ‘A Kiss on your Apocalypse’ and the single ‘Theresa Won’t’. Both available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and other on-line media.CD copies of the album will be on sale at the gig.

Global Beats presents: Adrian Sherwood (On U Sound) Plus support

ADRIAN SHERWOOD (born 1958 in London) is an English record producer best known for his work with dub music as well as for remixing a number of popular acts such as Coldcut, Depeche Mode, The Woodentops, Primal Scream, Pop Will Eat Itself, Sinéad O’Connor, and Skinny Puppy.

He is co-founder of Carib Gems and Pressure Sounds, and founder of Hitrun Records as well as Green Tea Records and Soundboy Records. His most well-known label is On-U Sound. During the early 80’s he brought together many Jamaican artists under the collective name of Singers & Players including Prince Far I, Mikey Dread, Bim Sherman and many others, this helped promote the individual artists at the same time as promoting the On-U Sound label.

In 1986 he began working Jamaican dub producer and singer Lee Perry. They produced the classic album ‘Time Boom X De Devil Dead’ and Sherwood’s support helped relaunch Perry’s career.
He made contributions to the Industrial music genre in his remix of Einstürzende Neubauten’s song ‘Yü Gung’, on the album ‘Halber Mensch’, as well as his production work with Ministry, Cabaret Voltaire, KMFDM, Terminal Power Company and Nine Inch Nails. In 2006 he released his second album ‘Becoming A Cliché’ that again featured numerous artists such as Lee “Scratch” Perry, the late Bim Sherman, Dennis Bovell, Little Roy, Leigh ‘LSK’ Kenny, Samia Farah, Raiz and Mark Stewart. A limited 2-disc version was released simultaneously with the second disc titled ‘Dub Cliché’.

On beginning a solo career, Sherwood stated, “I wanted to do some of my own writing and make something that was challenging for me… As a producer, it’s my job to satisfy the artist foremost. I wanted to make something that was a little more aggressive and modern. I wanted to paint a picture that was contemporary, one that specifically showed where my brain was at. I’ve got to the point in my life where it’s time for me to call all of the shots.”
