David Cronenberg’s Wife + Black Kes + Washing Machine Repair Man
Pure West Promotions are delighted to present David Cronenberg’s Wife, and a night of Anti-Folk like no other.
Doors 8 pm
£5 + BF from Hull Box Office
UK Anti-folk, legends David Cronenbergs Wife are undoubtedly the countries coolest band. After wowing a packed Adelphi audience last year, DCW vowed to revisit the city in its year of culture and will make good on their promise. Hailing from London DCW are a key player in the UK anti-folk scene. With regular airplay from BBC6 music and heaps of media and record label interest, this is the band to watch. Described by Mark Lamarr as “where genius meets idiocy” on BBC2 radio. Think post punk, think The Fall. These guys are %100 the real deal.
Support is from Hull’s own avant-garde, chicken in a basket, entertainers, Black Kes. Black Kes are like if The Grumbleweeds really got in to Roxy Music, Bowie and Can and wrote songs like Bob Dylan. Witnessing is believing.
Also featuring Washing Machine Repairman. An amazing duo from York. Simple words can not describe the transcendental insanity that is Washing Machine Repair Man. Acoustic guitar, double bass and some fantastic song writing.
This is a night that really can not be missed
