"Recovery: more stunning stuff from Rebel Soul Collective"
The Beat, BBC Radio Nottingham, Dean Jackson
" A conscious shift towards electronic dance and swaggering rock and roll. Think Primal Scream, Late of the Pier, the Rapture, Kasabian, TV on the Radio and the Go! Team."
Zoe Kirk - Nottingham Evening Post
THE BARNUM MESERVE
"Having set the bar pretty high I was now in search of a band that wouldn’t disappoint me, Barnum Meserve were happy to oblige. I climbed the stairs and found that I had to fight my way to the front to get a decent view of the band as the room was jam packed (this was promising). Their alternative take on atmospheric, OST style rock was original and was complimented very well with the singer’s powerful, raspy voice which had an American twang. I couldn’t put my finger on what it sounded like but after mulling it over I decided that it’s best described as a blend of Emery with Mogwai. The singer played a keyboard which replaced the more traditional guitar. He wasn’t the only talented musician either, the complicated bass lines were impressive which made up for the lack of a guitarist and the drummer’s arms seemed to be in two places at once."

10.45 - 11.15
Old Baford, wow, what can I say, here the holy trinity of the blues are both truly rendered and worshiped!
Jekyll and Hyde vocals, angelic falsetto ripping into a screaming growl with a seam bursting bass line locked into the scene by the whip crack drums. The guitar, greasy and keen shakes the cage violently and when released the boogie itch turns to rock and grit. The blues strut whipped up into a rampaging monster snaps your head off yet still forces you to dance incorrigibly."
John Hasse - The Rolling Stone
"Upstairs at the Rescue Rooms, in the implausibly named Red Room (it's actually green) – a couple of local acts took to the stage. First up were Boots Booklovers: five young lads from Beeston, who have been getting their name increasingly known around town this year. Earlier this week, they were announced as finalists in Nusic's competition to find a support act for Dog Is Dead at Rock City in December, having finished in joint first place in the public vote stage of the contest. They're a fresh-faced bunch, with neat, buttoned-up collars and instruments that still look a bit too big for their slender frames. The Eighties-slick singer and the Fifties-quiffed drummer have the best haircuts, the lead guitarist and the bassist look like brothers (perhaps they are), and the five-piece comes across as a closely-knit unit with a pleasing sense of purpose. Jangly indie-pop often sounds best when the ideas are slightly ahead of the execution, and if that sounds like a sly dig, then it's not meant to be. It's usually a sign that the band are pushing themselves hard as songwriters and arrangers, and in this case, the signs are already clear: this is a band with a future"
Mike Atkinson - Nottingham Evening Post
G & the JC'S
G and the JC's infect you with their particular blend of garage rock on this year of our Lord two thousand and twelve. They play like they party- hard, fast, loud and up tempo, G consist of 4 strapping lads from Nottingham's most intensely musical Cafe. Come see G & The JC Band before you die, it'll change the way you see things, blur the way you hear things and make you want to start a band or join theirs - come see G and the JC Band - they'll put the JAM back in your f@cking doughnut!
PATTERNS IN STATIC
"Female fronted indie poppy alt-rock from Nottingham in the vein of Hundred Reasons and Sucioperro."
SECOND ROOM (upstairs)
11.30 - 12.00
"And magic it was. So what is it about Ulysses Storm that has caused such awkward flattery? Well, everything really. Lead singer & guitarist is Michael Wetherburn, previously of Hellset Orchestra, who must have sold his soul at a young age to become the musician he is today. Not only can he play instruments to a highly technical level, he can write music that is exquisite, layered, interesting and fun. Oh, and he’s a showman who looks like he’s channelling Freddie Mercury whilst occasionally suffering from St. Vitus’ dance in his legs. Add to that the deftly skilled bass accompaniment from Russ Clarke and the exceptionally controlled but complex drumming of Ceri Howells on drums. And, they’re all having fun whilst doing it. Think of one of Jack White’s better side projects – Ulysses Storm are a big melting pot of blues, seventies rock and nineties indie (not Britpop!) influences with lyrics that don’t bother too much with longing and misery."
Ali Emm - Leftlion
10.30 - 11.00
The Derby Quartet will be touring their asses off this year to promote their debut album "The Shape of fun to come" which was released on the 15th December. Be sure to check them out before they fuck off to Europe again. If I had to describe them in two words I'd say these guys are fun fun!
9.45 - 10.15
On the 12th March 2012 Australian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joel Sarakula releases his debut UK single, 'Bohemian,' through Art Parade Records.
Fuelled by an addictive guitar riff, 'Bohemian' is a rootsy blend of late 60s/early 70s folk pop, with very playful lyrics and a killer chorus, which builds slowly with the repetition of a simple couplet, 'Because I am a Bohemian/ A modern Stone Age man' into a sing-it-from-the-terraces anthem.
Live, this one's a boy wonder. He's already rammed the likes of Proud Camden, Night & Day Cafe (Manchester), Catch and The Social, and don't miss an absolute flurry of upcoming London dates (plenty more TBA). I'm not someone who just sits there and stares down at the keys, he says. I like to communicate with my audience, so they can be a bit interactive but don't be scared.
Joel has been obsessed with music for as long as he can remember. Classically trained on the piano, self-taught on guitar, he fronted his first band at 16, before pursuing a solo career with debut album 'Mystery Morning.' He built a name for himself on the international piano bar circuit: I'm the human jukebox of pop, he says, wryly. A prolific chap, he found time to record two more Australian-only albums - 'Souvenirs' released in 2008 and 'City Heart' in 2009. Since 'City Heart', however, Joel has put everything into crafting 'Bohemian' and its forthcoming parent album. "The music I'm making now is the most natural fit for me, he says. I've kind of let go a little, and stripped back all the production. With 'Bohemian' there's no pretence, and I really like that."
9pm - 9.30pm
A real gem of a band here some bass lines heavy and math rocky but marrying that with the best emo screams with indie riffs and harmonies. A must check out band for fans of Smashing Pumpkins, Amusement Parks On Fire and Taking Back Sunday.
FOREST TAVERN (acoustic)
11.30 - 12.00
"Sexy songstress with a huuuuge voice. Emily's actually becoming one of the most name-dropped ladies on the circuit. There's a hell of a lot of great singers in Notts but that doesn't count for much. It's the balls and push that make you stand out, this is why she's hot!"
Emily also sings lead vocals for The Avengers, a Nottingham based musical project on which some of Nottingham's finest musicians have collaborated to date. You can hear what they're up to at www.myspace.com/entertheavengers.
"Combining folk sentiments with punk and blues. ali blends the sensitivity of ben harper with the legendary quality of johnny cash. his voice is one you'll love and your mum will love; it'll make you itch, glaze over with stupidity, and draw you to tears like they are attached to every guitar string. His songs resonate of pleasure and pain, a heartache that’s warming and a smile from one to another on the street. They are simply soulful full of male drama and climax. The simplicity of lo-fi guitar and vocals is like watching a man on his struggle to touch the most beautiful light in the world that just keeps slipping from reach, captivating and eloquent."
Amanda Young - Leftlion
"Unique blend of somnambulist folk, guttural blues and comedic ramblings. with an unpredictable voice that lies somewhere between tom waits and mickey mouse, funny beautiful and quirky music." Jamie Salmon
