First "Alternative Sounds" gigNews
As we wait for hard copies to go on sale of "Alternative Sounds: Volume Two", the "Alternative Sounds" team have turned their attention to the next stage of the project to share the cream of Coventry & Warwickshire music: past, present & future.
The aim is to try to put on showcase gigs featuring acts on the records or who will appear on future volumes, to introduce their talent to audiences who may not yet be aware of it.
The gig has been set up in collaboration with APE Promotions' Johnny Satsangi. Johnny is already heavily involved in the project: his sleeve designs adorn the albums & his band Satsangi have the track "Sixty Four-Seven" on "Volume One"
Johnny & APE are a snug fit for "Alternative Sounds" too in a shared philosophy of presenting audiences with surprises & promoting the work of those who might not necessarily be on everyone's radar.
For this debut, we are extremely grateful for the support of one of the project's most generous members: Roddy "Radiation" Byers who has kindly agreed to headline. Roddy will need no introduction to anyone, given his international reputation. Indeed, as I write this, he is packing his suitcase for another US tour with his Skabilly Rebels.
Roddy of course has tracks on both the "Alternative Sounds EP" and "Volume One" and is a featured songwriter on "Volume Two"
Also on the bill are current "Alternative Sounds" stars Satsangi & Crokodile Tears plus acts we intend to feature: cult favourites Jackdaw with Crowbar, the ball of primal energy which is Grassroutes & the marvelous Mr Binx himself.
Tickets are £6 in advance (more on the door) from www.apepromotions.com from https://alternativesounds.brownpapertickets.com/ and shortly from a range of other outlets in Coventry & Leamington to be announced.
