(blatant plug for the night I'm co promoting)

Pure Reason Revolution (http://www.purereasonrevolution.com)

Pure Reason Revolution have been making waves since debuting at Manchester’s ‘In The City’ with Steve Lamacq in 2003. Pulling influences from Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and the Beach Boys, it wasn’t long before Poptones mogul Alan McGee and Sony/BMG signed them, leading to the release of the epic 12-minute ‘Bright Ambassadors of Morning’ and mini-album Cautionary Tales for The Brave earlier this year. Their appearance at Screwball Cabaret will be their first ever acoustic show!

Six Nation State (http://www.sixnationstate.co.uk/)

Since Six Nation State combine their catchy upbeat ska tunes with one of the most energetic stage shows you'll see. They've supported Nine Black Alps and reportedly wiped the floor with them. They have been in Reading for less than a year but they've taken the town by storm.

Kaldera (http://www.kalderamusic.com/)

Kaldera's sound is funk, soul, jazz and even a little bit hip-hop. It's edgy, a little bit rocky and it'll make you dance. Debbie's powerful vocals are more than ably backed by 8 incredibly talented musicians. This year they've been in Incognito's Blueroom studios recording their latest EP under the guidance of producer Simon Cotsworth.

Pete and the Pirates (http://www.peteandthepirates.co.uk)

Artrocker says 'So strange! Folk bits! Byrdsy bits! Kraut-rock frug-outs, punk blasts of power and superb pop moments all segued and strewn together carelessly but precisely'. We couldn't put it any better. The Pirates debut mini-album, released on Stolen Recordings, was one of the local records of the year.

Damien A. Passmore

Think country, then move that further South, add some inbreeding and these are the tales Damien tells with the occassional Bon Jovi cover for good measure - worth the entrance fee on his own.

Is there any kind of "guest" list?

13-12-2005, 12:17:45
Not other than industry/press/some for the bands.

Unfortunately our break even is quite high.

BTW we want to book the Palestinians for the next one (whenever that might be).

:rolleyes: I remember when you were happy to queue in the cold with me. Man.

Hopefully there won't be too much queuing but if there is you can watch the fire jugglers who should be back to help guide people to the venue.

Even I didn't get in on the guest list for the last one *sulk*

Although it was a fantastic night, I thought all the bands were good but Aqua Livi at the end was amazing.

That reminds me. He's got a live track from that gig here:


It's about fourth one down. Great recording considering it just came straight off the sound desk. You can hear Pete shouting at the end.

Was good night.

I think I'm the only person who was glad when PPR finished? They were crap.
