Chris Scott & Max Noble – Acoustic Soul

18/06/2017
17:30 -19:30

Chris Scott – The Royal Assassins Late 1980s Chris Scott first came to public notice with a band named The Royal Assassins. Sharing the same label (Fire) as Chuck Prophet, The Blue Aeroplanes, Pulp and Spacemen 3, an album and single were released. ‘Music Week’ approved mightily and called them “…a riotous explosion of electric voodoo…” but sales were poor and the band split before recording the second album. Chris Scott – Bluesdevil Early 1990s After this he was influenced by early Womad festivals, and, due to restrictive aspects of contracts, being unable to sign to or write for anyone else, he worked with rediscovering old Delta Blues, re-interpreting old classics for the 21th century. He self released various albums and worked with Adrian Utley and Clive Deamer before Portishead and Radiohead and Ian Matthews before Kasabian. He toured, both solo and with his band ‘Blind Lemon Beefcake’ in the UK, Western Europe and Canada, and was described by the press as ‘Punk Blues with Attitude’. Side projects included a jamming band mixing hardcore Delta grooves with Brendan Whitmore’s Bebop sax noodling (Jack the Dripper) and a series of recordings with DJ Skoob mixing House beats and loops and editing techniques with classic Delta songs.(unreleased) Whilst touring Canada, he discovered the meaning of Country Music at a birthday party in honour of the Great Great Grandson of The Red Baron and set about evolving a style of music which seamlessly blended roots music from across the world into a cohesive sound. Chris Scott – from ‘Crawdaddy Bristol to Bristol, with Yah Supreme New York City late 1990s He then formed Crawdaddy with Steve Payne with this express intention. They went into the studio with Simon Edwards of Kpassa to define the sound and eventually they filmed a trip around the East Coast of the USA, jamming with musicians of all sorts of roots genres there in unusual locations, (all called Bristol) to be transmitted on HTV in 1998 under the title ‘Crawdaddy – Bristol to Bristol’. This generated praise and interest from the likes of Roy Thomas Baker and Geoff Baker (PR for Paul McCartney).Other albums followed including the live acoustic album ‘Hope’ with a Bristol all star line up of Jason Sparks, (Spiro) Claire Mc Taggart, Rick Payne, Paul Huggett and Bill Crampton. He played Glastonbury festival the year the Avalon stage sank. (1997) and supported (amongst others) Albert Lee, John Renbourne, Wilco Johnson, G Love & Special Sauce, Black Roots, Taka Boom, and Dr. Feelgood. However, family commitments forced a hiatus of over a decade, limiting him to occasional appearances in the South West and a day job, this latter finding him becoming involved in prison education and coaching…. Chris Scott – Acoustic-Soul In 2012, he moved to the Somerset countryside and set about picking up the traces of where he left off by recording an album of material to further refine his concept to blend roots musics. Working closely with Max Noble and Ernie Bell, these nine tracks define the concept of ‘Acoustic Soul’ a blend of Folk, Blues, Soul, Country, and Pop.(see music page) Guests include Gerry Rafferty’s guitarist Richard Brunton, Frank Swindells, Crawdaddy bass player Richie Gould and 70’s folk diva Aj Webber. The whole thing was mixed by Grammy nominated Ben Findlay, whose day job is Front of House for Robert Plant, Peter Gabriel and Jeff Beck. Chris Scott Acoustic-Soul. Farm Fest 2015 Sadly, shortly after the completion of the recordings, Ernie Bell died. Max set off travelling around Europe and Chris relocated to North Devon, where he now lives. Current plans are to release a 3 track EP (already available for download) which has been remixed by Starsailor and Blok Party producer Mark Aubrey.

The Shrinks

02/07/2017
17:30 -19:30

The Shrinks are a loose band of Bristol-based musicians who like to make, share and play music together whenever they can manage to snatch a few hours between all those things that get in the way of music – like tax returns and laundry.

The music they create is best described as a strange looking, yet at the same time, strangely familiar car that has been welded together from several other cars; a Pink Cadillac fin here, a psycedelic Silver Cloud grille there, the driveshaft from a yellow El Camino, wing mirrors from a white VW van, a Buick 6 gearbox, a squeaky wheel from an El Dorado, the diamond studded windshield from an ol’ 55, the upholstery from a Ford Econoline, the footlight from an Austin Cambridge and a Pontiac steering wheel, all held together on a Bristol chassis.

It may be rusty in places and perhaps it doesn’t get out on the road as often as it should but, when it’s firing on all cylinders, the rhythmic throb of all the parts working together makes it a vehicle that can really move and transport you to some pretty unusual places.

Enjoy the ride.
