Well, here it comes!…
The debut live offering of ‘Johnny Powell and the Big Sad Face of Infinity’ and YOU are invited.
Live at Nelson’s Wine Bar, Hebden Bridge – Sunday the 27th of November.
Here’s the word on the street:
– New material.
– New band… including the fantastical talents of Paul Mill and Ian Hinton-Smith.
– Lovely intimate venue with nice peoples, real ales, wine etc.
– Lots of instruments, no space, bugs to iron out, lots of potential sound problems.
– Plus the fantastic WAS IST DAS? Soundsystem will be spinning some lovely vinyl with a DJ set after the gig… and possibly before too.
And if you still need to read reviews after that mouthwatering opener:
“It’s the sound of a world-weary detachment of both acceptance and confusion tempered with restraint. The Broken Leg Sessions is Definitely something for fans of the musical doodlings of Will Oldham, Joanna Newsom and a hint of Sparklehorse.”
BBC Radio Introducing:
“Exciting times lay ahead for Johnny Powell and co.”
“Johnny Powell’s new solo venture is a harrowing, ethereal creature that swims in delicate voices, folky reflection, minimalist electronica and incidental found sounds – like an even lonelier Devendra Banhart. Interesting and affecting”
Manchester Music/Piccadilly Records:
“This EP gets more interesting as it unravels, the cold reverb giving way to a temperate ebb of sparse electronica, embellished with creaky fireside singing”.
….So, you coming?
