Saturday July 31st at The Book Club, Shoreditch
Featuring:

DERRIERE (LIVE)
http://www.myspace.com/derriereband
Conceived late one night in Brighton’s ever-pregnant musical underbelly, Derriere delivers a playfully raunchy mix of old school rock and roll, vintage soul, rockabilly and jumpin’ rhythm n blues.

Comprising the devastating double bass playing of Blood Sugar Hill, wailing blues guitar of T Bone LeRhone with magic fingers Matt Gest pounding the key, the formidable horn section of Gram Canyon and Rosie Cheeks, the bone-crunching rhythms of Redhand Mallon, at one time one of the most feared sticksmen in Portslade. At the forefront of this collection of raw, soulful, hipsters are the ball breaking, brassiere busting vocals of fireball front-woman Gloria Stittes, whose voice will strip you naked, box you soundly about the ears, then throw you back out on the street where you belong. Ready your hips and open your heart – Derriere will take you from behind.

DJ SCRATCHY
http://scratchysounds.co.uk/
Guest DJ Scratchy toured the globe spinning tunes for with the legendary Clash, The Pogues, and latterly Gogol Bordello, Scratchy still has his finger on the rockin’ dance pulse, bringing together an irresistible blend of rock’n’roll, reggae and roma, a true mestizo mix of the greatest music on the planet, from and for all times.
