Get folked up with Moulettes

Heg and the Wolf Chrous
Heg and the Wolf Chrous

A couple of weeks back we were well and truly wowed by a true guitar great when Nils Lofgren returned to play another sell-out date at The Stables.

While the musical menu of this evening’s date at the venue varies somewhat, the delivery is set to be just as pristine.

Moulettes – that’s them sitting pretty on the cover of this very GO! section – will be sizzling.

Hardly a new name on the scene, they remain a potent one.

The Brighton-based innovators are best summed up as a band of Bjork, Frank Zappa and Gentle Giant loving multi-instrumentalists that weave in and out of several genres with three part harmony vocals, amplified cello, distorted bassoon, auto-harp, guitar, drums, bass and synths into an incomparable alt.pop/rock/folk universe.

Here’s hoping they enthuse this weary writer with a live rendition of Lady.

Fingers crossed.

An exquisite proposition, Moulettes are, and they’ll not be alone at this show – it’s a co-headliner with Nizlopi.
Even if you’ve not thrown yourself into their fantastic fare, you’ll know Nizlopi for one track in particular – The JCB Song saw the indie aces with a hit on their hands.

The band became a million selling success who ended up on the stage at Wembley Arena.

Best of all, they didn’t compromise to get there!

This tour is Nizlopi’s last for a while, and joining them in a supporting fashion will be Bristolian folk storytellers Heg & The Wolf Chorus.

Make it quick and google their current single The White Witch.

But hurry along, you’ve a ticket to book for this evening’s show, too. Show time is 8pm.
