Charlie Jones plus support – Jack Cheshire
September 5, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm£10.00 – £12.00
The drama. The narrative arc. The pay-off. Listening to LOVE FORM, it’s all there. From the opening tantalising tendrils of ‘The Messenger’ to the blaze of distortion, intimately conversational piano and persistent snare keeping things tight that follow, the debut album by the West Country’s CHARLIE JONES immediately puts you in the mood.
“A piece like that is a kind of selfish gospel music,” says Charlie. “It represents the emotion of undertaking something which is deeply enjoyable, yet you know to be very bad indeed to be indulging in. That very fact feels so good.”
“Hugely beguiling. A talent in urgent need of discovery.” THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
Jack Cheshire is an English singer-songwriter & musician. Having released his third album Long Mind Hotel in 2013, he writes “…mildly psychedelic, quintessentially English…dreamlike & beautiful” music.
Jack was born in Bath, Somerset, and grew up surrounded by a plethora of eclectic records; Beach Boys, Augustos Pablo, Fairport Convention, Tom Waits, Billie Holiday, Laurie Anderson, Echo & the Bunnymen, Can…. A reserved songwriter but keen bass player from an early age, Jack studied and played music full-time in Liverpool for a number of formative years, developing an unusual finger-picking style on guitar as a result of bass being his first instrument.
