The Hallows

The Stables, October 14

Charlie has spent most of the last year writing material for his next studio album, which will be his 29th!

Eager to keep the fans happy too, he is on the road just now to play a handful of selected dates, and naturally the Wavendon venue features in the itinerary. Expect a slick performance from a clever creator.

The Hallows

MK11, October 14

Milton Keynes-based alt-pop trio The Hallows recently issued their debut album, Of Times and Tides.

They call themselves an ‘enchanting concoction of Kate Bush, Muse, Portishead and Tori Amos with their own individual dream essence thrown in.’

The Hyena Kill

The Craufurd Arms, October 20

Manchester-based duo THK make a tremendous noise, as you can hear on their debut album Atomised, which hit the racks last month. But the best way to listen to them this week, is in the live environment. Geldof said he didn’t like Monday’s but he might have, if he’d seen these at play!

The Eskies

Bedford Esquires, October 14

The Eskies are purveyors of music that meanders from sea soaked waltz to Italian tarantella, from Brassy funeral march-esque lament, to weep along Klezmar knees up, from chain gang holler to rag time finger snap. Skipping through the dark side of anything that makes you want to dance. Simples.

Jah Wobble

Bedford Esquires, October 14

Jah Wobble (he was given that moniker by Sid Vicious)began his musical career at 18 as a founder member of Public Image Limited.

His heavy, hypnotic bass lines defined the post punk era and have influenced many musicians over the last 30 odd years, and there’s plenty more to be done yet...

The Dub Pistols

The Craufurd Arms, October 14

“We don’t put on many shows these days,” the Beatcheck Monkey told us, “But when we do we make ‘em big and banging....” And he wasn’t fibbing – his promotion has booked The Dub Pistols for the Craufurd Arms this Friday night.

“The last time The Pistols rode in to MK it was a sell-out show. “They give an instant and insane party from the second they walk on stage; they really are an incredible live act to see.”

Prepare yourselves for a fired up and fabulous ‘reggae-breaks-jungle mash-up with a punk attitude,’ in exchange for your £14 quid.

The Pistols might fire on all cylinders wherever they play, but there ain’t nowt better than an intimate sweat soaked litte hub to see them in, making the Wolverton haunt the perfect place to rock along with them. Support is coming from Kioko and tickets are shifting.

Move fast or miss out.
