[Apr 26, 2012] Chris T-T with She Makes War and Davy Shanks (Aberdeen)


Recommended Posts

A kind of pre-announcement, if you will; Chris T-T will be gracing Cellar 35 with his presence on 26th April, with She Makes War in tow.

NOW, there is a wee space for a local support, and we're currently having a look for someone to fit the bill by going to various gigs and (albeit drunkenly) making an assessment of their suitability for such a show. However, if you are a soloist, or possibly a couple of people, who feel your music would complement this line-up, we'd love to hear from you.

Message us a link to yer stuff if you're interested.

The full details will be up in this thread in good time, once tickets are set up etc.

Also, Thomas Truax (the only other thing we've ever put on...) is nigh, next week in fact, but I foolishly neglected to make it into a thread on here, simply creating an event. Derp indeed. Hope to see some of you there, yeah?

Brighton based English singer-songwriter, Morning Star contributor, Twitter loo documenter (#loo2012), the man who taught us that Eminem is Gay, and revealed the heartstring-tugging properties of the Nintendo Wii...

Following his 2010 release Love is Not Rescue with its critically lauded single/EP Nintendo, and his Bandcamp-only Disobedience album, Chris T-T tours his upcoming Sings Jeremy Clarkson to Sleep EP.

His brilliantly observed vignettes on the stresses of modern life, love and politics are accompanied with an honesty and artfulness which goes some way to explaining his enduring appeal, from the early plays of his Beatverse (1999) début on Radio 1's Evening Session, to his performance on the 'fourth plinth' as part of Anthony Gormley's One and Other project.

In recent years he has gigged with Ben Folds, The Divine Comedy, British Sea Power and The National, to name a few.

"Genuine hairs on the back of the neck stuff. An incredible voice, heartbreaking, soaring and compelling all in one. ‘Nintendo’ was both a surprise and a joy to listen to, Chris T–T pulls something special out of the bag and brings it all to the table. Stunning from start to finish."

Chris will be joined by She Makes War - multi-talented multi-instrumentalist Laura Kidd, who combines a DIY ethos with a sublime voice and a new-riot-grrrl aesthetic.

"Imagine appealingly grainy angst-pop à la Blood Red Shoes shot through in leftfield with the conceptual imagination of someone like Melissa Auf der Maur, and you’ll get somewhere close to She Makes War." - Wears The Trousers
