Romantic and honest, gloomy and curious, melodic and melancholic, Plastic Barricades chronicle life in the troubled yet fascinating XXI century with painstaking sincerity, asking questions and trying to find the answers. Inspired and influenced by almighty Radiohead, Oasis, Coldplay, Muse, Keane, Razorlight, Nirvana and many others, trio loves to experiment with styles, sound and approach.
Based in North-West London, Plastic Barricades are Dan Kert on guitar, keyboards and vocals, Daniele Borgato on bass and Frazer Webster on drums.
Sad Song Co
The Sad Song Co. is the project of Nigel Powell, currently drummer for Frank Turner And The Sleeping Souls, Dive Dive, and ex-Unbelievable Truth. The band also includes silent partner Jason Moulster, also previously of Unbelievable Truth, but he tends to keep himself to himself and stay in the background.
Formed in October 2015, Voodoo Blood are a brand new Manchester four piece, re-imagining blues rock with hard hitting riffs, soaring guitar solos and wailing vocals.
Voodoo Blood are fronted by the miniature powerhouse Kim Jennet who Manchester Metal Collective described as delivering “vocals with the power of Janice Joplin. And by TGC live as “nothing short of a goddess, a born performer who looks as natural on stage as anyone ever has”.
Backed by a band That Manchester rocks described to “dominate the stage, with fuzzy crackling tones and deep bass grooves punctuating a feisty performance”.
With songs compared to the likes of “Led Zeppelin”(Manchester rocks) the band are currently hard at work on their debut EP that will be independently released on the 14th of October 2016. In the meantime Voodoo Blood will be playing a tour de force of live shows!
In their first few months the band are already kicking up a fuss and have played many iconic venues including the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London.
Forming over a mutual love of classic blues and dirty grooves voodoo blood deliver songs filled with raw power and emotion giving you a performance that will leave you feeling all shook up!
