The Brighton Hussy

Brighton Music

Love Music, Hate Racism... is it really the simple? Let us consider some of the other possibilities..

1. Love Music, Love Racism

Nasty people can still have a gentle  heart when it is melted by sweet sounds pouring through their ears. Take Nick Griffin for example, prior to life on the acceptable edge of right-wing thuggery Nick was in a ukulele band. Coming ...

 

Just in case you aren't already struggling to fit all the events of 24th October into that one extra hour, here is something else to throw into the mix... "Lana has a pouty and sultry fullness to her voice and she plumbs the ...

 

The Hussy's  inbox is an overflowing pit of PR releases.  I Had been ignoring all but the most appetising messages. That seems a bit of a waste and I am sure many nights worthy of a promotion slipped beneath me unnoticed. So, I have decided to chuck it all out there. If you have something to promote email events@thehussy.co.uk and ...

 

The Half Sisters, (c) Ben Petrucci  To be more precise it is Sister, Sister, Half Sister. But Bros allowed Craig to join in so there is family misnomer precedent in band names. Actually one third of the trio are half sisters so the name is 67% accurate. The Brighton band are fun. And ...

 

 It pleasures me to help promote the Brighton Live Music Festival. Why? because it is five days of FREE events that work to promote local artists. That means free gigs. WIN-WIN-all around. Brighton Live is a non-profit organisation which makes a pleasant change in a town filled with greedy fuckers. At the core of the festival is a showcase of new and ...

 

This could be a chance for a nobody to become a somebody; or at least remain a nobody -but a nobody that has played at a music festival... "The organisers of White Air have today announced an exclusive partnership with MySpace, that will see the festival teaming up with the social network to find a new unsigned band or ...

 

Orchid Thieves: Prince Albert, Brighton: Sep '09

Orchid Thieves brought every ingredient to the Prince Albert that makes watching a live band such a treat; gorgeous vocals, fantastic stage energy, multi-layered percussions and guitar chords as raw and ripped as your old Levi's. From the very first note a thick beautiful noise belted out of the speakers and filled ...

 

Reduce your carbon footprint by attending a chilled out acoustic night. No amps, no electricity, no global warming, happy polar bears. poster Of course "tipping point theory" tells us that we are already fucked and even teeny-weeny gerbil sized footprints can't save us. So, go and listen to sweet tunes. Three bands, ...

 

orchid-thieves'Producing a sound recently described by Tom Robinson on 'BBC Introducing' (BBC6 Music) as ‘completely professional, beautifully recorded and produced’, six-piece rock band Orchid Thieves have been busy performing at major London and Brighton venues since March. Likened to bands such as Fleetwood Mac, ...

 

Bearded Beauty: William Fitzsimmons Feeling lucky enough to be provided a chance to see William Fitzsimmons at on his latest wiz-round-tour round the U.K I headed out to the freebutt, to watch him play, and promote his latest album, "Goodnight". This bearded beauty of a man - rated as one of americas finest ...

 

The Great Escape Diary - Day 2 It feels rather bizarre cooping onself in the dingey confines of the Arc on a grey afternoon to watch bands, at least at most other festivals you're in a field, here you're where you would be on a Thursday night, except not drunk and - in my case - clutching a much ...

 

Great Escape Diary - Day 1 Getting off to a late start due to work and acting commitments I made my way into Jam for the tail end of We Were Promised Jetpacks, a band with a name close to my heart.  Their Scottish indie-pop sound was instantly appealing and emotive, and once I'd found a perch ...

Bright-AID @The Brighton Coalition Saturday April 4, 2009 One of the best things you can do on a Friday night in Brighton to wind down from a busy week is nip out for a few drinks and a spot of live music, even more reason if it's in the name of charity.  For all of those reasons, last night my friends and I ...

 

Apologies in advance for accidentally putting this up after a few dates have gone by, but if you hurry out tonight you'll be able to catch the wonderful Charlot Webster along with Kate Walsh, Conrad Vingoe, Dannii Nicholls and Ben Griffiths all tucked inside Kemptown's Fairtrade Gallery tonight (4th April). The April Alternative kicked off ...

 

Zeeb? - Zeeb As Thermal Detonator In Gargantuan Rock Monster zeeb This is straight up punk rock, but Zeeb fail to gain any momentum throughout their second album. Though they are not doing anything that hasn't been done before, they admittedly do it well.  This is despite unimaginative titles - ...

 

Agitated punkers and 'doo-wop' ska band create a storm in Brighton

Phinius Gage & The King Blues  phinius-gage Phinius Gage opened up to a crowd who looked on slightly nonchalantly, but that didn't stop the Brighton punkers from putting their all into the show.  Starting with a ...

 

SINGLE REVIEW:   The Brian Jacket Letdown

'White Sky'

It's been a good ol' while since TBJL hit us up with their sonic airbrushes. Lying largely fallow since '07, the band's ever changing line-up have since enlisted the help of bassist Alyssa McDonald of Scritti Politti fame. Along with Alyssa, newcomer Gemma Ware fans The Jacket's flames with her oddball box of ...

 
 

ALBUM REVIEW:   Dirty Stop Out

'Cuntro Classics Volume 1'

agent As the play on words in the title suggests, Volume 1 in a succession of similar releases is a brazen, filthy, fuck-mouth dollop of psycho billy, country punk and rock'n'roll. Comprising seven tracks, Volume 1 is hosted by three whip-ass collaborators who ...

 

SINGLE REVIEW:   Sunday Driver

'Rats / The Gayatri Mantra'

It's both a shame and no surprise that the Cambridge sixpiece, Sunday Driver, haven't garnered the recognition they perhaps ought to have during their nine years as a band. A melting pot outfit of characters, they marry traditional Indian sounds and instruments with very eccentric Englishness: ...
