sister chain brother john 0817

A One and Only chance to see Sister Chain & Broter John in London!!!

But wait - remind me....

Sister Chain (SkinBlues, SpinsterSister) and Brother John Higgins (former frontman of London band Val’s Basement) met in a mysterious Berlin bookshop on Halloween a decade ago.

Since that day the couple have played numerous concerts in churches, on boats, on street corners and gambling houses as well as the usual nightclubs, festivals and concert halls. They have toured Scandinavia, UK, continental Europe and the US and supported international acts such as Lene Lovich, Jowe Head (Television Personalities) and Michael Dempsey and Lol Tolhurst of The Cure.

They released their debut album “Darkness to Warm Your Heart” in 2008 and followed up with their second album “The Androgyne Show” in 2012. Their EP “Take Cover” was released in 2013 and their latest release “Staying in Soho” 7- inch picture disc was launched in March, 2017.

Sister Chain & Brother John live in Berlin with their sons Hamlet and Marlowe and their cat Edgar.

OK, BUT WHAT'S NEW?
In their new program, the duo presents a song-cycle of utopias and dystopias hand picked from their previous concept albums: Darkness to Warm your Heart and The Androgyne Show as well as their upcoming British themed album which features a mythically utopian England, as seen through the playful prism of exile: a suburban fairyland of woodsheds and tipsy ghosts, a nostalgic London of club cads and dissolute thespians and so on...

http://lynnruthmiller.net/

The Hanging Gardener of Babylon, 'BBC Radio London' s gardener and everyone's poet ' will delight us with cuttings from his canon, filling our noses with scent and our ears with sound. With a voice as tall as hollyhocks, he is no shrinking violet.The Fuschia's so bright , you gotta wear shades
.https://twitter.com/HangingBabylon

The Yes Mess:
"Joyful and damaged, the vocal combinations live to tell the tale, harmonising and winning. The solid guitar rhythm will welcome you on a journey through the streets of, ‘Illness and Danger’, the ‘Land of the Laughing’ and the afterlife of a ‘Caterpillar’. The snarl and passion, groove and nagging pop melody, will boot-through as the drums roll out the swings and blows, supported by tight, peachy bass beats, and lead guitar experimentations; cheeky, creepy and bewailing. The accordion waves nightmarish imaginations; swiftly U-turning between klezmer to Cuban, jingle to jangle." https://theyesmess.bandcamp.com/

Duncan Whyte is a singer/guitarist with an enviable voice and a wide, varied repertoire of songs. He is also a member of the Chorus of Dissent, with a recent appearance as a soloist in their Stokey LitFest concert.
