Hightown Pirates are the band fronted by Simon Mason last seen supporting on Peter Doherty's solo Eudaimonia tour of the UK.
The debut album 'Dry And High' is released this summer and if reaction to the intial tracks put out on Spotify, iTunes etc is anything to go by, they are going to be massive. The full live experience includes a flute player, horn section and backing singer.
RUDY WARMAN & THE HEAVY WEATHER
"Mystical, folky blues. Is it a thing? Yeah. Now, it is anyway. There’s no better way to describe Rudy Warman and The Heavy Weather. From Folkestone, they being with them a sound like no one else. There is a real class about songs like “Air” and “Supertramp” which when mixed with the feel that they might have just pitched up here on their way back from Glastonbury, that makes – rather like Exile on Main St era Stones’ – Heavy Weather anything but. Shimmering and summery, this is music for a hammock on a cloudless day. This chilled out, blissed out vibe is rather exemplified by their closing number “Gazelle” a gorgeous strum of a thing dedicated to the children of war, this is peace and love, and needs your understanding."
