We’re delighted to be working with GospelbeacH once again!

Brent Rademaker of further, Beachwood Sparks and The Tyde brings his band GospelbeacH back over the UK in February 2020. The touring band also features ex-Slowdive, Mojave 3 and The Loose Salute drummer Ian McCutcheon.

GospelbeacH is back with a set of great new songs. Let It Burn is the follow-up to Another Summer Of Love and the third proper studio album by the infamous Los Angeles rock combo. Let it Burn features the recently deceased guitar virtuoso Neal Casal (Chris Robinson Brotherhood).

Let It Burn is an album of West Coast rock ’n’ roll, redemption and guitar solos and is out now on Alive Naturalsound.

‘If you dig the late ’60s/early ’70s cosmic cowboy vibe of Flying Burrito Brothers, The Byrds and Gram Parsons, you’re gonna get on great with these guys’ – Louder Than War

Main support comes from The Swells. Tripped out guitar-pop band The Swells are a North West-based five-piece. They make simplistic, Big Star-esque songwriting awash with the noise and ambience you’d find on a Sonic Youth or Spacemen 3 LP. Sentiment and melody meet space and noise.

Opening the show are new band Surfing Pointers. Surfing Pointers are a lo-fi psych/fuzz alt-rock four-piece from Manchester. They’re influenced by bands such as Tomorrows Tulips, further, the swirlies and Sonic Youth.

This show is a co-promotion with Please Please You and the Brudenell.
