As part of our new series of free entry shows at the Eagle Inn, we present John Myrtle and Rosey PM.

John Myrtle is releasing his debut EP, Here’s John Mrytle, on Bingo Records and is taking the jangle pop that has earned him fans at BBC 6 Music and Rough Trade on the road.

Here’s John Myrtle sees John collect a number of his early demos and live favourites, as well as new songs, and record and mix them proper for the release on Bingo. The EP shows the best of John Myrtle’s idiosyncratic pop songs so far, and builds on the recordings done on old tape machines in his bedroom by adding parts from live band members Ben Bartrop and Sean Harper. Tracks Cyril The Slug and Foggy have already gained extensive airplay on BBC Radio 6 Music and the band played their first live session for Marc Riley on the station in March. Radio X and Amazing Radio have also been backing the tunes, and Cyril The Slug attracted the praise of Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand and FFS.

John’s music calls to mind The La’s, The Kinks and Harry Nilsson, while his lyrical subjects are reminiscent of words by Richard Brautigan or Ivor Cutler. John Myrtle and his band have been honing their live show all year, having played with labelmates Mr Ben & the Bens as well as fellow 6 Music favourites Lavinia Blackwall and Wesley Gonzalez.

Local support comes from Rosey PM. Self-proclaimed pyjama-jazz singer-songwriter Rosey PM trips over jazz-pop beats and flirts with young romance, wrapping harmonies around lazy-day tunes and hypnotic bass lines.
