Gothic, clattering, musical steam-punk contraptions combine with one mans eccentric vision to create a show you WILL definitley remember.

Thomas Truax has just recorded a covers album made up of songs featured in David Lynch's films and, somewhat paradoxically, made them somehow more Lynchian. It's a melange of garage rock songs, avant garde sounds and cabaret showtunes, full of whistles, toy piano, ice cream chimes and invented instruments... with shades of Tom Waits' storytelling, Nick Cave's theatricality and Lux Interior's howling-at-the-moon madness...

Nominated for BEST LIVE ACT OF THE YEAR by Is This Music Magazine, The Indy Music Awards, and Maps Magazine.

"When he performs, it is a spectacle - the originality and seeming impossibility of what he does is much of the appeal." -The Guardian

"Truly unsettling and perplexingly brilliant... testament to both the quality of Lynchs soundtracks and Truaxs talents" - The Skinny

"Truax is paying homage to a kindred spirit with this album. It's the best kind of tribute affectionate and respectful, but with its own quirks and imaginative leaps and its own distinct identity." - The Scotsman

"Truax here performs to great and disturbing effect." - Uncut

"Surreal, really." - Artrocker


Admit it. You all watched the York six-piece on Channel 4s MobileAct Unsigned show. They played devil blues and soul music?

Hijak asked to leave the TV show in the semi finals, having got what they wanted from it and believing nothing good could come from a record deal that you win. They're now touring their second album, and they're bloody good.

The British music scene's in a really healthy state at the moment, but it's always when you see something different that you get really excited. There's a band called Hijak Oscar on the show who are amazing - they've got a real Tom Waitsy air of menace to them."- Alex Zane Digital Spy


SLIDE guitarist & songwriter Dave Arcaris alt.blues sounds owe as much to trash country, punk and rockabilly as they do pre-war Delta blues and have been showcased via five internationally-acclaimed solo CD releases.

A series of shows with the mighty Alabama 3 (by personal request from the band), Seasick Steve, Son of Dave and Jon Spencer along with his relentless UK and European tour schedule have established Arcari as a formidable international solo performer.

"... a pertinent reminder that British people do backwoods hoedowns as well as anyone. By some bizarre accident, Dave Arcaris bluesy growl owes as much to Long John Silver

as it does to Big Bill Broonzy."- BANG Magazine

"There's no fleet-finger twiddlage here, just blasting bottleneck riddims and Arcari's scary Captain Beefheart vocal. It's the original blues message - drink, be merry, fall over. Hurrah!"- GUITAR Magazine

Plus local support from classic rockers LIARS DICE. Onstage about 8.30pm.

8pm-1am, 18+ only, 4 door tbc
