Hailing from Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire, the four-piece band The Tiny Minds released their new single ‘Jealous Sea’ on Leeds label Dance To The Radio on April 22. Combining a love of Motown with Brit-pop guitar influences the likes of Blur, ‘Jealous Sea’ also brings out snarling guitars, soulful organs, drawling punk vocals and Northern Soul persuasion. It’s a dance groove and an infectious alt-rock blaster combined. (Little Indie)
Kim Metcalf local handpan musician – discovered this rare and evocative melodic sound sculpture on the streets of Edinburgh during the fringe of 2009. Entranced she knew immediately this was her instrument. After spending a number of years connecting with the then small but enthusiastic handpan community around the world she began to source her own instruments. She now uses the handpans she owns to create her own instrumental pieces both solo and in collaboration with others. She has worked with dancer, poets, Indian classical musicians and has appeared at art and music festivals around Yorkshire. Her new album ‘Play the Space Volume 1’ was released this spring and as well as playing live she runs workshops and teaching sessions to give others the chance to come into contact with these rare instruments.
Paul Weatherhead is a local legend, with a huge back catologue of albums with titles such as “Exile on Market Street” and “The Hebden Bridge Plastic Bag Preservation Society”. When not playing mandolin for The Ukrainians or theremin for The Electric Brains, Paul writes and performs comic horror folk songs inspired by drug-addeled 60s psychedelia, blood spattered 80s video nasties and the Hebden Bridge Times.
Keiron Higgins is a ‘Punk Poet’ from the aisle of Halifax, West Yorkshire. Keiron started doing spoken word as a secondary outlet to music production in 2013 after seeing the likes of close friend and fellow punk poet Cayn White over the years, and being spurned on by attending Genevieve Walsh’s (one member of the up and coming poet collective, FIRM OF POETS) first spoken word night. In 2015 he released his first chapbook ‘KEIRON HIGGINS: PUNK POET AND CUNNING-LINGUIST’ and has become the co-host/compere for Genevieve Walsh’s Spoken Weird night based in Halifax. In performing he has supported the likes of Attila The Stockbroker, Steve Ignorant’s Slice of Life, Evil Blizzard, and ex. Stiff Little Finger member Henry Cluney. The book is a lighthearted and sometimes comical outlook on the everyday life and struggles of living in England, the love of punk rock music, and recommended for anyone who enjoy the works of John Cooper Clarke, Sleaford Mods and Craig Charles.
