Aziz Ibrahim http://www.myspace.com/azizband
The Aziz show is an acoustic evolution of the Aziz album ‘ Lahore To Longsight’ and EP ‘Middle Road’ on Indus Records. Its quite simply a new form of music that Aziz calls ‘Asian Blues’. Get ready for Asian/blues guitars, voices and rhythms merged into songs and instrumentals written by Aziz with maybe a few co-writes with his Ex-band mate Ian Brown from ‘The Stone Roses’. Accompanied by Dalbir Singh Rattan one of UK’s finest Indian classical artists from Leeds it’s a complete psychedelic guitar/tabla fest’ that sounds like five guys not two !
Park Bench Poet http://www.myspace.com/parkbenchpoet
“Park Bench Poet are a new and exciting act who are proving more than capable of infusing witty anecdotes and social commentary with a melodic and sometimes reggae twist. Songs such as ‘New Direction’ and ‘After Midnight’ are only snippets of what this act are capable of! Park Bench Poet are sure to impress and given recent airplay on BBC Radio 1, it won’t be long before the big time is calling! Coming half Gomez, half Mike Skinner, this is the soundtrack to your summer and the story of your life.” Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.
