The Middle Ones
The Middle Ones are Grace and Anna and they’re unfortunate enough to be touring with T-Shirt Weather. They play Lo-Fi pop music that makes you feel warm and fuzzy on the inside. Nice.

T-Shirt Weather
3 numpties, channelling Ozzy Osbourne and ABBA in equal measure. They never stop rocking and are persistently hailing Satan. 666.


Not Sorry
Synth-punk-disco from London.


On tour with Not sorry. Dark synth sounds from London


£3-5 (PWYC, no one will be turned away due to lack of funds)

Home Assembly Music presents: The Declining Winter + Manyfingers + Gerrard Bell Fife +DJs


The Declining Winter


The Declining Winter are the brainchild of Hood co-founder Richard Adams.  He makes warmly produced, forward-thinking, melancholic English music referencing Talk Talk, Bark Psychosis, Robert Wyatt, Radiohead and of course his former buddies Hood. These are the band’s first gigs in five years to promote latest album ‘Home For Lost Souls’ (Home Assembly).




Manyfingers is the solo project of Movietone/Soeza member and Third Eye Foundation collaborator Chris Cole. He makes incredible neo-classical compositions that reference Philip Glass and Steve Reich. His latest album ‘The Spectacular Nowhere’(Ici d'ailleurs) features vocals from David Callahan (The Wolfhounds/Moonshake) and is a thought provoking tour de force of comforting beauty matched with impassioned realism.  
Gerrard Bell-Fife


Gerrard Bell-Fife is Bradford’s best kept secret. He performs beautiful finger picked songs that have all the richness and melancholy of the greatest bits of the Nick Drake and Bill Callahan back catalogues. He has a beautiful baritone voice that lesser mortals would die for and audiences tend to turn to putty in his hands.
Some DJ’s will spin some fantastic new sounds in between the bands.

Under The Devil's Moon - poetry collection launch

Facebook event page

Join Susan Darlington for the launch of her debut poetry collection, Under The Devil’s Moon (Penniless Press Publications).

The Leeds-based poet will read extracts from her book, which is full of anthropomorphic animals, disintegrating bodies and the shape-shifting properties of water.

It has been praised by The State Of The Arts for its “supple, musical free verse” while Morning Star described it as a “lovely collection of fairy-tales, playground cruelties, bad-dreams, day-dreams and delicate similes.”

The evening will include a number of open mic slots. Priority will be given to new writers, especially women.

Entrance is £1 on the door.

Youth Anthems #9

Happy 2nd Birthday to us!ya9

In celebration of this momentous occasion we have for you the best Summer line-up that could possibly be squeezed into the four walls of Wharf Chambers!

Of course there shall be cake from That Old Chestnut. of course there will be fantastic hot, cold, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available from the wonderful Wharf Chambers bar, of course it will be free entry to all of those 14 and under (and only £4 for those 15 and above) and of course there will be three wonderful bands...


I have asked Protectors to play at every single Youth Anthems gigs and finally we found a date that worked! If you are unaware of the amazingness that is this five piece then get on over to Bandcamp, have a listen to their wonderful album "Soul and fire is all we ever need" and make a purchase right away! Anthemic, life affirming indie-rock, Protectors are the finest thing to come out of Wakefield since Rhubarb. With members from every single decent band in the Yorkshire region, expect nothing less than perfection.



I don't like to use the phrase "irritatingly young and talented" very often as it can seem jaded and patronising but Jacobean Ruff (and certainly The Keatings) must hear this a lot! Playing angular folk music with a seemingly myriad of influences (everything from Pete Seeger to Fugazi to my ear) this Ilkley five piece play music with a talent that is well beyond their years. Having received air play on Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Leeds, and having played gigs at the 02 Leeds, Fell Foot Festival, Beacons Festival and Live at Leeds amongst others you should make the most of seeing them at intimate gigs like this!


The Keatings

Jake and Nick are two Brother's from Bradford playing uplifting traditional folk that will melt your heart and remind you that a break from punk music is allowed some times! Already being played on the BBC and BCB Radio, once again I think we've managed to capture some talent for you before they blow up all over the place. If you're into The Coopers, The Wainwright Family (with hopefully less arguments!) or Billy Bragg then chances are this will be up your street!

Following on from the success of the Children's Clothing Swap at our last gig we will again be hosting.

We will also be using the gig as a collection point for the Leeds North Foodbank, please visit our website for more information on this and what foods they are after.
