Alex Rex

October 26 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

£10
Alex Rex is the ‘ghost-rock’ project of Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Shirley Collins, Current 93 et al).Inspired by Greek Tragedy, Barbara Streisand and Alex’s own internal critic, Alex Rex perform songs of love, loss and loathing that make the detestable whistleable. The group released their 4th album, Paradise in July this year, which introduces us to a new and uncharacteristically playful side of Alex Rex.
For this show, Alex Rex will be a two-piece of Alex (drums, lead vocals) and Rory Haye (electric guitar, vocals)

Praise for Alex Rex:

“Full of grief, romantic anguish, but twinkly as well” Uncut

“Gothic pop noir reminiscent of Nick Cave” Q Magazine

Ashtray Navigations

From the depths of Meanweird, traversing the fields of drone, noise, krautrock, lo-fi, psychedelia and ambient across 180 or so releases since 1994. Sonic explorations dedicated to exploring the weirdest of unnamed feelings and perverse half-thoughts scuttling around the back of your minds, with a sharply-honed sense of playfulness and joy.

Thanks to last year’s universally acclaimed Greatest Imaginary Hits retrospective compilation on VHF, a new generation of music fans are discovering Ashtray Navigations for the very first time.

Ashtray Navigations new album ‘Before You Play This’ is out on Blue Tapes on 24th September.
