About The Event

Blue  Orchids - Formed in 1980 by Martin Bramah, a founding member of The  Fall, and christened by John Cooper Clarke, the Blue Orchids signed to  Rough Trade, released a clutch of well-received records and toured with  Nico, both as backing band and as support. Splitting in 1985, the band  have periodically reformed. Bramah has been their presiding genius  throughout. Whilst their 2019 album, the superb ‘The Magical Record of  Blue Orchids’, suggests their roots in 60s garage rock, Marc Riley  suggests a different set of influences describing Bramah as ‘a brilliant  guitarist and song-writer ... Think Tom Verlaine guesting with The  Doors.’ They are touring this Autumn to promote their new album 'Angus  Tempus Memoir'.

AlterModerns  - Originally from Brazil, AlterModerns are a Bristol-based duo who have  never been afraid to wear their influences on their musical sleeves.  Psychedelic, garage, punk blues... they perform 'docufictional' songs  about how communication, travel and migration affect a way of life.  Tipped as a best 'new band for 22' by Louder Than War.
