JULY 19TH – OLD QUEENS HEAD – ARTHUR RIGBY & THE BASKERVYLLES / IGOR VOLK / THE MODERN JESTERS – FREE ENTRY!!
Oh! Inverted World returns to the Old Queens Head on July 19th with (as ever, obvs) an AMAZING line-up of Arthur Rigby & the Baskervylles, Igor Volk,and The Modern Jesters. You’d expect to pay good money for such quality, but no, IT’S TOTALLY FREE!
———-ARTHUR RIGBY & THE BASKERVYLLES———-
Arthur Rigby & The Baskervylles are a Leeds orchestral-pop eight piece (yes that’s right, there’s EIGHT of them).The sound the band creates is a genuinely beautiful mixing pot of lush orchestrations, poetic lyrics, romantic melodies and powerful energy.
Arthur Rigby have become firm favourites of BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson, who regularly features the band on his show. The music is the invention of front man and guitarist Benjamin, scoring songs for violins, piano, bass, trumpet, trombone, Saxophone and flute. Originally a 2-piece, with drummer Alex joining Benjamin, the Leeds based duo used orchestral backing arranged on laptops with samples and programming.
Beautiful tunes here.
Igor Volk, I believe, has made one of the best songs I’ve heard this year with ‘Voice’. I defy you to not spin this on repeat. Ivor was a member of New Young Pony Club and is now currently working on a full album with Nick Phillips from the New Sins. We are super excited for this!!
———-THE MODERN JESTERS———-
Our friend Jonny Taylor is now fronting The Modern Jesters which from what we’re heard are are also pretty awesome.
