Daylight Music is a dazzling idea presented by the Union Chapel to open up their amazing gothic venue to a shiny new daytime crowd and provide a rather exciting platform for artists. Produced by Arctic Circle and supported by The 405.
Howard Hughes & David Tattersall
The Lobster Boat is the side project of Dave Tattersall (from The Wave Pictures) and Howard Hughes (from Coming Soon).
It was written and recorded in a few days in Paris and London in 2010.
They were inspired by Captain Beefheart, Howlin' Wolf, The Rolling Stones, John Darnielle, Stanley Brinks, Crispin Glover, Friday the 13th (final chapter), Bruce Willis and Elmore Leonard.
The Vatican Cellars
The Vatican Cellars are novel, in fact they are a novel, but then as a lit grad you knew that, right? Novel, because they thought a set of ballads and country songs should be dark but never gothic, should be joyous and yet intricate; in short the indulgence would be yours, never theirs.
So when Mr S. Hughes Esq., (guitarist with Piney Gir), and The Birthday Girl (the Schla La Las) decided to combine the former’s love of folk and the latter’s love of high heels and harmonium, something truly unique was born.
Picking from the cream of the crop of Oxford’s thriving music scene they soon had a drummer called Russell who could understand 9/18 time AND shuffle and a double bassist called Tom who channels pure anxiety into walking lines of dastardly brilliance.
Et voila, The Vatican Cellars.
Some call it heartbreak in a glass. Some call it “night-folk”. But why don’t we all just agree on “excellent” for now.
