WagonWheel Presents… begins our new regular monthly night at Shakespeares on Friday March 30th, and we have a fantastic three band bill lined up to kick things off. Launching their new EP Saluting Magpies will be hotly tipped Doncaster band In Fear Of Olive. Bringing their cowboy rock ‘n’ roll we have the gentlemen of The Clench and the night fires into action with some dirty twang from Roaming Son. Advance tickets priced at £3 are available from WeGotTickets.com (http://www.wegottickets.com/event/157403) or entry will be £4 on the night. Doors open 7.45pm.


***IN FEAR OF OLIVE***

On March 26th In Fear of Olive release their second EP “Saluting Magpies”. Once again the band recorded with acclaimed roots producer Keith Angel (Kate Rusby, Martin Simpson, John Boden, John Tams). In Fear of Olive, comprising of Jake Cope, France Lahmar, P.J.Burdett and Arv Teeroovengadum further consolidated their growing live reputation in 2011 with over 70 gigs and performances at boutique festivals together with BBC Radio plays and sessions for the likes of Clive Anderson’s Loose Ends on Radio 4. Louis Theroux, who was also on the show, is now a big fan declaring, “…the band sounded terrific, kind of Doorsy”.

After support slots with Alabama 3, Southside Johnny, Haight Ashbury and more, In Fear Of Olive were confirmed as tour support for Howard Devoto’s cult band Magazine where audiences were calling for that most unusual of things for an opening act… an encore.

The Magpies EP sees Jake Cope’s songwriting stretching to impressive breadth and depth – much more personal and aggressive at times. This had some unexpected payback that threatened to end the band before it really took off. “I was in a state of change when I started to write these songs” explains Jake. “I didn’t go looking for it” he jokes “Change can drive you crazy if you’re unprepared. In those moments of panic you know all you can do Is grab what you can and make some sense of It all and it all comes out in that song” (Saluting Magpies)

In Fear Of Olive may be from Yorkshire, but they have a distinct American rootsy vibe that permeates their not so traditional folk style.

Twanged-up skiffling rock and roll from the Deep South – deep South Yorkshire, that is. Energised by Johnny Cash, Bright Eyes and Bob Dylan, this quartet has the Richard Hawley seal of approval and ours too.” – The Word Magazine

Really, really great songs, boss lyrics too and sympathetic arrangements played with real feeling and soul… what is there not to like?” – Richard Hawley

***THE CLENCH***

Image

The Clench deliver whiskey-fuelled, blues-swamp-funk-country rock, to put it in a not very small nutshell. The six piece band caused a bit of a stir on the Sheffield live circuit since unleashing their debut EP ‘Pain Don’t Hurt’ which they since followed up with the acclaimed album ‘Walking In The Devils Tracks’. They aim to make ‘music to ride horses by’ and their sound conjures up images of Western desert landscapes and cowboys.

Doesn’t so much buck the trend as fit it with spurs and place JR Ewing’s hat on its head.” Sheffield Star

A truly stunning swoon that’d make any red-blooded listener want to canter off into the distance. It’s sexy, sultry and visually evocative. The band’s Western-drenched material is intoxicatingly evocative.Sheffield Telegraph

Tight as Wrangler jeans with sounds as big as Tennessee, these boys are ones to watch.” The Culture Vulture

***ROAMING SON***

Image

Roaming Son are a Sheffield based band that mix earthy heartfelt vocals with twangy dirty guitars, greasy bass and jungle drums to create a sound that is influenced by the classic rock’n'roll recordings of the 50′s / 60′s but while adding a distinctive modern flavour. From brash to beautiful, the sound of chainsaws & rainbows.

^^^^^ what he said.

There are planned strikes from all gig promoters and venues over the next few weeks so severe live music shortages are expected. Get your fix NOW!
