Each month Bonanza & Filthy MacNastys pay homage to the icons, innovators, outlaws, renegades and mavericks who in the name of their art went further than the rest and paid the 'ultimate' price…

On Sat 4th June 2011 we will pay tribute to the true Queen of Country Miss Patsy Cline (September 8 1932 – March 5 1963)

Patsy Cline took the standards for being a Country music vocalist and raised the bar to cross over into the mainstream delighting audiences and fans of ’ALL’ genres. A true innovator as well as an artist who gained mass appeal; it’s scary to think what might have happened if her life had not been so sadly cut short at the peak of her career.

We will celebrate her life & those she has influenced and been influenced by with bands, djs, visuals and film projections.

Playing Live

+ Emit Bloch:
London based American Country Beatnik and Son of a Utah Cattle rancher Emit Bloch draws on a rich history of Americana and beyond to create his distinct brand of authentic sounding lo-fi, Avant-Americana.

Primarily relying on the basics of voice, guitar and harmonica, Bloch fuses old-timey structures, absurdist wit and earthy melancholy to produce highly narrative Country tunes that bring something fresh and vital to the great American tradition of the Country-Folk song and speak of today as well as of yesteryear.

An exceptional songwriter, very much in the same lineage that runs from Hank Williams to Woody Guthrie, through to Bob Dylan right up to and beyond Bon Iver, Silver Jews, Devendra Banhart et al.

Bloch recorded a batch of songs for his One Little Indian released debut album, ‘Dictaphones Vol. 1’, at home from his kitchen table for the princely sum of just £6 with all tracks recorded directly to his dictaphone. It went on to be HMV’s recommended album of the week as well as a five star review in Mojo Magazine.

His sound has matured and been augmented by the use of psychedelic effects and ephemera. Can’t wait!
