SATURDAY 14 JULY, TIVOLI, BUCKLEY
The wonderfully named Twisted Banana Promotions have hand-picked six exciting Welsh bands for your ultimate summery musical pleasure. All for £10.
In their own words: “We are literally bursting with excitement to be putting them all in front of you on one stage on the same evening.”
It would be easy to take that statement with a pinch of salt. After all, they are promoters with tickets to sell. The line up for Buckley Tivoli on July 14 is, though, tremendous.
Sixties pop viewed through a rose-tinted haze, Colorama are based around the talents of singer-songwriter Carwyn Ellis – who has in the past worked with Oasis and Edwyn Collins amongst others.
Similarly Cardiff’s Houdini Dax jitter their way through Beatles-esque harmonies and doo-wop rhythm with reckless youthful fervour.
Ewloe’s Golden Fable are the brainchild of Tim McIver and Rebecca Palin. They mix electronics and guitars into lush atmosphere. Camera, Cal Roberts and the Ill Gotten Gains and The Loving Cup make up the excellent roster. For full details go here.
