Thing…. Animator MAX HATTLER joins THE PARADE and the rather beautiful GLUE ENSEMBLE tonight in East London,…

THE PARADE invite you to come join them tonight, it was the mention on MAX HATTLER that caught the eye though…

Come join The Parade on 17th April at Shoreditch Strong Rooms (East London).

Here’s the events tonight, in the words of event organisers and record label Frenz, (don’t you just love cut n’ paste….”This is the new Frenz Experiment – can GIRLZ run GIGZ? Yeah, we reckon so… We’re starting the new year with a new night – Frenz is a live music night held on the third Wednesday of every month in the fabulous Strongroom, in Shoreditch”.)

“A threesome heading up London’s new mob of musical raconteurs, The Parade have been described as “the bastard love-child of Jarvis Cocker and Coco-Rosie fucking with the Smashing Pumpkins”. Since their debut gig in February 2013, the band’s natural swagger has proved so-far infectious, with Gideon Coe 6Music playing tracks from their forthcoming debut EP, ‘A Night Like This’ released on April 13th, and Record Stores Sister Ray and Rough Trade taking stock of their limited physical release, which is accompanied by a soon-to-be-released music video.

Shame you can’t actually get on to their web pages and explore a little bit to find out what they’re about, I don’t want to sign up for a mailing list and a bag load of spam for a band I don’t know that well, I want to explore your site and see if I like…. rather like this YouTube of a track from their debut EP though

Teatime At A Funeral cover artTHE GLUE ENSEMBLE

‘”We are the sound of slipping away before everyone else wakes. We are the feeling of a train journey back to where you grew up. We are the sound of tea-time at a funeral’. Founded in a hospital ward following a day’s drinking, The Glue Ensemble epitomise a mix of the astonishing, the poetic and the painfully mundane. The current members include Mr.Z Ahmad on bass, banjo, guitar and singing, Ms.L Christine on viola, Mr.B Blaine on guitar, banjo, piano and singing and Ms.CJ Lodge on Cello”.
