Cesarians always have as much a cerebral aspect to their remarkable outsider chanson as an intensely emotional one … intensity, songcraft, passion and raw emotions. Something dark, beautiful and inordinately powerful comes your way. Nobody else does what they do, although there maybe some artful goodness to chew on for fans of Nick Cave, Jacques Bel, Scott Walker, Bowie, and of late edgy electronica artists like Goldfrapp. New material is about to be launched in the form of a heart rending new album centred around some very harrowing and deeply personal subject matter, as singer Charlie Finke says ‘Every word and every note is performed with utter passion and commitment’ …that’s certainly readily apparent when you watch this band perform live. And The Water Rats is a venue that fits them beautifully, don’t miss.
Starsha Lee- Talking of passion and commitment, you most assuredly get that with bells on from a Starsha Lee show. Starsha Lee, the artist, singer, front person, gives it her absolute all, as Starsha Lee, the ferocious post grunge psych punk rocknroll band plug into some feral but psychologically pregnant primal wigging out. She screams, she thrashes, she disrobes, she convulses and gurgles and yes it is art. For fans of Yoko Ono, The Stooges, Diamanda Gallas, Nirvana….
The Widows – a loveable and lurid mix of The Cramps and The Stooges and The Fall. A brilliant live proposition with some cracking tunes, this gig heralds new material and a hu ger to crack heads in Brexshit Britain. What an ace bill!
