THursday 24th November 2011

Bonanza & Son has moved into its ninth year of presenting the best in Country, Blues, Americana and Roots Music and recently celebrated four years of ‘Countrier Than Thou' at the Lock Tavern.

Way back in the days when Country was still a dirty word round these parts and Americana was thought by some to be simply a typo’ error, not only having consistently sourced excellence in traditional Country, Bonanza has also discovered the most forward thinking Avant-Country, Punk-Blues, Americana and Roots with zero irony just good old quality music and very good times.

Bonanza & Son also broadcast a popular weekly radio show on Resonance 104.4FM (Every Monday evening 11pm-Midnight with repeats Sunday afternoons 1-2pm) as well as running numerous other club nights and dj sets in the Capital.

Live acts

The Elasticated Waste Band:
A raggle-taggle, travelling minstrel ensemble of Banjo pickers, Penny whistle slickers, Howlin' Slim Harmonica Lickers, Eukelele flickers, Fiddle diddlers, crooners, swooners that all make for a veritable old-timey, medicine show of a freaky, Louisianna style rag-time Punk-Band!

The Elasticated Waste Band's sound also collides drunkenly but always majestically into vintage pre-War Blues, Hillbilly, Bluegrass and even Rootsy-Tootsy Ska workouts!

Watch all 9 of these guys take to the tiny Lock Tavern stage and show you just 'how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall!'... Righteous!

+ Mad Staring Eyes:
Mad Staring Eyes hail from North London and have been playing together since they were 15 years old. Imagine a kind of Avant-Country family band akin to The Carter Family but with London accents and a contemporary edge.

After releasing their self-titled, debut album they were invited to play the John Peel stage at Glastonbury and they have since played all over the UK as well as in the US of A, Canada, Germany and even Russia! They have played acclaimed international festivals such asSouth By South West in Austin, Texas and North By North East in Toronto.

Their latest and soon to be released album was recorded live onto tape using only vintage equipment and draws on influences from The Band to Ryan Adams, The Byrds to Bruce Springsteen to Van Morrison.

Their wistfull tunes will tug at your heartstrings and the whirling upbeat numbers will lift your boot-heels on to the dancefloor. The next day you’ll be humming them in the shower before you know it!

'Music that makes you want to cry, laugh, dance and sing...all at once.'

+ Guest DJ
Spacehips (If There Is Hell Below/Lead Soup/Cassette Player)
Psychedelic blogger extraordinaire and club night impresario Rob ‘Spacehips' Morgan makes a very welcome return-lunar-landing toCountrier Than Thou with his Cosmic, American Music collection that would have Gram Parsons & Gene Clark gagging at the rodeo bit!

+ Bonanza & Son DJ set (ResonanceFM)
Radio Presenter, DJ & Club night promoter 'Daddy Bonanza' spins his latest acquisitions of Country, Blues & Americana vinyl curios.

+ Bonanza & Son will be screening rare Westerns & Americana cinematic curios all night long including a special screening of Alex Cox' 1987 Acid Western ‘Walker’.
