Soundtrack To The End Of The World is a credible piece of imagination with its tracks nothing less than satisfying and enthralling. The Duel has been to the fore of UK punk for the past few years and shows no signs of leaving their position to anyone else as the album proves". 5th album coming soon! https://www.facebook.com/thedueluk?fref=ts JONA LEWIE Award winning songwriter, producer and musician Jona Lewie has had an illustrious career in the industry. From his early days playing piano with blues legend Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup, through early chart success in 1972 with his self-penned Zydeco hit “Sea-Side Shuffle”; to his Ivor Novello winning Christmas Perennial hit “Stop The Cavalry”. Indeed, Jona has had major chart success internationally not only with “Cavalry”, but also with tracks such as “Louise”, and “You Will Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties”, amongst many others. The majority of his hits will always be associated with his time signed to Stiff Records. http://www.jonalewie.com/ https://www.facebook.com/JonaLewieMusicPage?fref=ts FOLK GRINDER SEA SHANTY BORDELLO ROCK'N'ROLL: FOLK GRINDER are London based - singer/songwriter KOOZIE JOHNS - vocals,acoustic & electric guitars,foot stomps'n'yells and MIRO SNEJDR - accordion,piano,backing vocals - plus the occasional guests. Formed in March 2010, an album of demos titled 'Faith in hope, love and salvation' were recorded in the spring founding a blue print for the fG sound and then rehearsals began. ANNE PIGALLE The Last Chanteuse needs no introduction…. Like Edith Piaf , The Last Chanteuse grew up at the back of Montmartre in Paris, France. Her teenage years were spent playing guitar in an all girls punk band and watching films. Anne Pigalle moved to London, recorded with Michael Nyman and Adrian Sherwood and then went on to sign a Trevor Horn. Hailed as the Queen of Chic Bohemia, she toured Europe and Japan. Her self styled photo in 1985 in front of the red velvet curtain has become iconic. In the 90′s, Anne moved to LA she develops her film idea with the late Donald Cammell and returns to London where she produces some experimental music pieces as well as some classic songs, erotic poetry, paintings and some beautiful self portraits polaroids, exhibited at the Michael Hoppen Gallery (the show Amerotica voted 4th best in The Times in 2006 ); her role as a multi media artist becomes apparent and influential. The 2013 madame Sex Art Cd, is a home made Cd ( or perhaps made in a hotel somewhere ) combining some new songs and a selection of erotic poetry. Each object Cd is handpainted individually as a protest against the generic world of music and art where everything is mediocre, fake and unsexy, well according to Madame Sex, and she knows. http://www.annepigalle.com/ Sarah Pinks Rebellion https://www.facebook.com/SarahPinksPunkGardeningRebellion?fref=ts COMPERE : Bart Barton as The Spirit oF Andy Warhol compering and doing interviews https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dear-Andy/109559979102809?fref=ts + More Special Guests & To Be Announced ♥
