KARL & THE MARX BROTHERS’ LP LAUNCH EVENT
Music, performance art and politics will all play a part when Karl and the Marx Brothers launch their debut LP Angry Folk on Friday, April 12th in the beautiful setting of the Guildhall Theatre, Derby.
The LP contains 11 original songs taking inspiration from recent events – some personal, some political, and some both together as they are in reality.
The evening’s entertainment will start at 8pm with guests being serenaded on arrival by Simon Monaghan, with his best impression of Woody Guthrie, surrounded by an angry crowd of Mis-Imp: Improv Comedy Nottingham, ‘protesters’ intent on nothing in particular.
In the foyer, to the sounds of folk DJs Hartley and John spinning their vinyl acoustic collections, Derby’s homeless hostels will be present to explain the effects of the draconian cuts they face to their financial support and the disastrous consequence that will ensue. All profits from the evening’s performance will be going to this crucial cause.
Upstairs in the theatre, and hosted by BBC Radio Derby’s Andy Potter, the first half of the show will feature the solo acoustic tunes of Josh Kemp and the bluesy folk of Scott Thomas.
After a short interval Karl and the Marx Brothers, five 30/40-somethings, will be previewing the debut LP that is Angry Folk … 11 songs of love and politics.
It may be a mid-life crisis, or one last trip on the musical charabanc, but they won’t be going quietly into some soft middle age (it’ll be at various volumes and in harmony). And afterwards? Well we’ll see you in the bar (mine’s a Guinness).
Tickets for the event are available priced from £5 at www.derbylive.co.uk or at the Box Office, Derby Market Place.
Angry Folk is available from April 14th on CD, vinyl, and download from CD baby; iTunes, the band’s Facebook page, BPM Records, Derby and Music Exchange, Nottingham.
