Song Of The Day:

Bonanza & Son’s 'Song Of The Day’ is
’Hold On To Your Love’ by John Hiatt.
Taken from his 2011 LP ‘Dirty Jeans & Mudslide Hymns’.

The whole album is a winner on New West Records.

Our next gig is The Gaslight Club @ Filthy MacNasty’s

Tuesday 7th August 2012

Named after and taking it’s inspiration from the famous Greenwich Village Café, The Gaslight Club which was a favourite haunt of the young Bob Dylan and where he premiered early songs such as ‘Masters Of War’.

Live acoustic sets from

Dana Immanuel:
I had a discussion with Dana recently just before a Jim White gig in Wetherspoons. 'We' were in Wetherspoons, not the Jim White gig I should hasten to add... That was at the more salubrious Union Chapel.

Anyhow, Dana turned to me and asked 'how would you describe my music'. ‘Well', I said, 'Gothic-Country comes to mind but in the true sense of Gothic, so more Edgar Allen Poe than Marilyn Manson'… I also said that a Journalist friend of mine described it as 'Country-Noir'.

I think that whole conversation says more about what you can expect from tonights show than the paragraph of pretentious, music jouranalist blurb I initially intended to write.

So we have it then, a female Jim White, pissed in Wetherspoons with a Banjo and an attitude, praying at the alter of primal Rock ’N’ Roll in its infancy. Sounds good dunnit?

Emma Scarr:
Tonight Emma Scarr will play a selection of songs both in the guise of her solo, Folk-Americana with guitar and vocals and possibly slide-guitar resonator and also as Black/Scarr her more upbeat, Country duet with fiddle. Both incarnations are a delight to hear and see live and you won’t be disappointed. Emma has an uncanny knack of taking traditional, American Roots music and seamlessly imbuing it with a Britishness and a truly down-home London feel.

+ Guest dj 'Son Of Bonanza':
A pure and instictive selection from the entire history of music with no prejudice or pre-conceived ideas.

+ Bonanza DJ set (ResonanceFM)
10 decades of Volk-Music + any recent, vinyl-curio acquisitions and some brand new, underground adaptations of our chosen genres!

+ Film Screenings:
All manner of weird and wonderful rock ’n’ Roll celluloid artefacts will be screened as a backdrop all night long for your visual pleasure and seeing as we were talking about Jim White we’ll screen his film ’Searching For The Wrong-Eyed Jesus’
