The Independents Tour featuring...
JD Meatyard plus
Mankes, Tamsin A & KIN
Saturday 7th April 2018 9pm
Tonight we are very pleased to welcome back long time friend of Number 39, the one and only JD Meatyard and if you've seen JD before you know it's going to be pugnacious, political, poignant and pure gold! But that's not all, we also have Mankes and KIN both from the Netherlands and Tamsin A.
JD Meatyard's previous lives as singer/shouter in Levellers 5 and Calvin Party featured heavily on the late great and much missed John Peel show on BBC radio. JD still retains all the rage and the passion delivered in a very considered fashion.
Get yourselves over to the JD Meatyard Website where there's some sample tracks and more info.
Mankes are a Dutch band who play an atmospheric, dynamic mix of dark folk with an influence of fado tinged with a ragged edge, the effect is poetic and cinematic. The Mankes Website has videos and links to other Mankes web pages.
KIN is an Anglo/Dutch quartet based in Groningen, Holland. They frame shimmering, orchestral guitars and warm vocals with driving beats and bass, animated by noisy trip-hop and post-rock to shape expansive and hypnotic songs that tread a line between the concrete and the spectral. Take a look at the KIN Website where you'll find music and videos.
Tamsin A comes from much closer, namely Salford and it's a warm welcome back since she has played Number 39 a number of times. Besides her solo act Tamsin is lead guitarist with the Manchester band Mr. Heart. Making clever use of guitar and vocals Tamsin creates some hard hitting songs with strong meaningful lyrics. For more info take a look at Tamsin's Facebook site.
