    Eel Daddy Presents: SIMON TOWNSHEND BLUSHING BONES DU BELOWS Plus DJ to Finish on: 8th June - 7:15pm - Late at: Drayton Court 2 The Avenue Ealing London W13 8PH Tel: 020 8997 1019 TICKETS: £7 General Admission SIMON TOWNSHEND A familiar name with an original sound, Simon Townshend is straight from the lineage of one of British music’s most famous families. The son of England’s top big-band reed man and baby brother of Who legend Pete Townshend, Simon has been recording and performing since the age of nine, when he was brought in to add vocals to The Who classic Tommy. He went on to successfully self-produce six well received solo CDs on the Stir Music label, including Among Us (1997), Animal Soup (1999), Bare Bodies Bare Assets (live acoustic)(2000), Ages (2000) and simontownshendis (2002). Simon is back in 2011 with the EP entitled Something New. The 4 track sampler is a preview of material from what may be his best and most impactful solo recording to date, the forthcoming 2012 release, Looking Out Looking In. In addition to his own music, Simon has produced artists both in London and New York. He has performed with numerous established acts ranging from Jeff Beck to Pearl Jam, and including elder brother Pete Townshend, with notable song writing and vocal contributions to Iron Man and Psychoderelict. Other credits include 15 years as guitarist and vocalist in The Who, playing sold out tours of Europe, Asia and North America, and a monumental performance at the 2010 Super Bowl. He was referred to by one U.S. newspaper as The Who’s “secret weapon.” In 2004 Simon served as producer for The Who’s first new, original studio recordings in more than 20 years and in 2006 contributed his talents to their highly anticipated album, Endless Wire. Since 2009, Simon has accompanied Roger Daltrey on tours of the United Kingdom and North America, including a stint with Eric Clapton. Simon Townshend’s own music is his priority and it has made a significant impact. As brother Pete Townshend told London’s Daily Mail, “he’s brilliant.” British and American papers have variously described his songs and performances as … “supercharged…Mr. Townshend pushes the band to climax upon climax” (The New York Times) “buoyant melodies…soaring vocal harmonies,… irresistible chorus hooks pushed and pulled by the refreshing optimism of Simon’s voice” (The Washington Post) “impressive” (Billboard) “really pushes the envelope and is highly recommended” (Amplifier) “wonderful melodic punch…truly enjoyable listening” (Goldmine) a “catharsis” (The Los Angeles Times) In short, as London’s Gig Guide said, “you would be a fool to miss him.” Check out Simon @ www.SimonTownshend.com Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/simon.townshend.9 ................................................................................................ BLUSHING BONES Genre: Epic Folk Members: Tessa Shrubsall - Vocals James 'Jibs' Manigley - Guitar Holly Peters - Bass and BV's Jonny Rogers - Drums and BV's Having met in a maths metal band several years ago, and subsequently playing in a lively funk rock band "reprobates", Tess and Jibs now prefer to sit down, have a nice cup of tea, and write acoustic folk melodic loveliness. When writing and rehearsing, they never stray far from the kettles they call their own, in West Ealing, London. Having recently supported "Thunderclap Newman" at Talking Heads in Southampton, Tess and Jibs are currently gigging regularly in London.

Du Bellows Du Bellows formed after TJ and Jade met at an open mic night in Ealing, West London. After months of hanging out and writing with no particular musical direction they stumbled upon their very own sound.The songs created and performed by "Du Bellows" involve a soulful feel and just the right amount of rhythmic and cadence tension to create both an interesting and enjoyable sound. The unique blend of sensitive and virtuoso guitar playing from TJ, including impressive, embellishments of 'machine-gun' rapidity, provides a perfect accompaniment for Jade's impressive voice. Their songs range from folk-inspired gentility through to bluesy gospel and funky melodic rock, with always thoughtful and poetic lyrics. The combination of TJ's unique rhythmic and finger-picking style and Jade's powerful and soulful vocals has already made waves on the music scene. Music aficionados of all kinds have savoured their performances over the last year or so, and they are sure to attract many more fans in the near future with the addition of the talented Richard Leeds on bass guitar and the masterful stylings of David Watkinson on the drums.
