Herman Dune & Good Friends: Evening 1

Thu 28 April 2005 // 19:30

(Thur 28th & Fri 29th / £8 for both nights / 7.33pm)

Two nights in the company of the wonderful travelling band with special guests, cameos, films and a special recording of a live album.

To coincide with the release of their rocking new album, 'Not on Top' (Track and Field), the band will be playing at the Microplex and recording a new live album, featuring wee and not so wee help from their Bristol buddies. What larks, what treats.

Time to get better aquainted or make new friends with HERMAN DUNE.

A special ticket covering both nights is available for £8.

HERMAN DUNE (acoustic) + Diane Cluck + My Two Toms + Stitch Stitch Djs (Thur 28th / £5 / 7.33pm)

A dress up, get intimate for tonight's coverted and rare acoustic set from the 4 piece from SWEDEN, FRANCE, USA - the WORLD. Herman Dune capture the spirit of melodramaa, minisule moments and deft observations in their melodic drift and upbeat songs. They tour constantly and are taking tonight to do something rare and exciting.

It will also go bang with Brooklyn's DIANE CLUCK (who also plays on HD new album) splashing baroque John Fahey-esque guitar parts overlaid with her hauntingly clear voice, enveloping the listener in an atmosphere that is unique and intimate. At times dark, and at times quirky and funny, the lyrics of her songs are stories woven together with love and a little bit of pain.

The unstoppable force that is the admirable, free spirited duo of TOM and TOM come to add fun and mischief to tonights acoustic love-in with banjos and plaid shirts.
