Dohnavùr - The Flow Across Borders Live

Ali O’May and Frazer Brown met in early 2018 while performing with their respective bands at an Electronic Music Open Mic (EMOM) gig in Edinburgh. With obvious common interests, further discussions lead a few months later to Ali passing Frazer a USB drive filled with stems recorded directly from Ali’s vast modular system. Across August and September 2019, Frazer used about a dozen of those stems as the foundation for a set of tracks, building them into fully realised pieces across a range of styles from techno, lo-fi, breaks, acid house and ambient. And thus was born the Dohnavúr method - Ali coaxing the raw materials from his modular set up and Frazer working them up instinctively with his encyclopedic knowledge of electronic music into tracks for which the feel, genre and direction is inspired by Ali’s foundational building blocks. It’s a fascinating and unique way of working, but the results are staggeringly good.

Taking their name from the the Bridge of Weir family home in which Ali grew up, fifteen miles West of Glasgow, the newly christened Dohnavùr released this first batch of collaborative tracks on their debut album, “You Can and You Shall”. A joyously diverse set, filled with innovation and promise of the great things to come.

Just two weeks after “You Can and You Shall” was released in March 2020, the pandemic brought the world to a screeching halt, placing any opportunities to promote the album with live appearances on hold indefinitely. Ever resourceful, Ali and Fra started looking around for allies and likeminded musicians and labels on Twitter. Enter Castles in Space, who had sent out the call for submissions for “The Isolation Tapes” a release requesting submissions recorded in lockdown and released in support of the Cavell Nurses Trust. Dohnavùr submitted a long, paranoid, snarling mood piece called “Surmonter” (French for ‘Overcome’) which confused and delighted “The Isolation Tapes” compiler Colin Morrison in equal measure. The track was given pride of place as the opening track in the downloads section of the album (which went on to be awarded “Compilation Of The Year” in the Electronic Sound 2020 awards).

The link with Castles in Space firmly established, Morrison snapped up the subsequent “Pristine Environments” EP, created with further stems from the by now legendary USB drive, for a vinyl release for the 500 subscribers of the Castles in Space Subscription Library service, where it was been greeted with huge enthusiasm upon release in March 2021.

May of 2021 saw the long awaited release of the new Dohnavùr album “The Flow Across Borders”, supported by a leading 12” single of album opener “New Objectivity” expanded and remixed by electronic music legends, The Orb.

For the band's first headline UK tour, expect an epic array of dirty machine rhythms, lo-fi breaks, analog synths and acid house leanings.

The tour also features a massive list of support from the leading lights of the UK's independent electronica scene.

BatTS Presents'Calendar Girls: The Musical'

The death of a much loved husband prompts a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Womens Institute to do an extraordinary thing. Blasting away all preconceptions of what it is to be in a womens institute, they decide to do an artistic nude calendar to raise money for charity. Upturning preconceptions is a dangerous business and none of them expect the emotional and personal ramifications, but gradually the making of the fabulous and funny calendar brings each woman unexpectedly into flower.

The true story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon, a million copycat calendars, a record breaking movie, stage play and musical written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow which coined the term "craughing"  - the act of crying and laughing at the same time.

With unforgettable songs, every performance continues to add to the millions already raised for charity and also prove that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.

Director: David Sismore. Choreographer: Hollie Saunters. Musical Director: Lorraine Barry.

An Evening With Simon & Oscar (Ocean Colour Scene)

In 2015 Ocean Colour Scene celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a sell-out acoustic tour of some of the most prestigious UK Concert Halls,  it was not only their most successful for 15 years, but also their best received, with ecstatic audience reactions every night.

Simon and Oscar are continuing the theme in 2022 with a tour of intimate seated venues, the perfect stages for their acoustic performances of all the big hits and anthems, including The Riverboat Song, The Circle, Traveller’s Tune, Hundred Mile High City and The Day We Caught The Train. These shows are the latest chapter in a remarkable career that’s seen OCS rise from Breton shirt-wearing Stone Roses disciples to one of Britpop’s biggest bands (their 1998 arena tour was the biggest by any UK group that year). In their 30 years together, they’ve enjoyed five Top 10 albums, six Top 10 singles and a mantelpiece full of awards. But behind all the swagger and the style were great songs, with words and melodies that found their way into your head and heart. It’s time to hear these songs again, stripped back but every bit as brilliant.

Lou Sanders: One Word: Wow

It's me again, your old internet friend Dr Giggles.

It's time for a little get together; so pull up a chair, get all cosy and let me tell you about the time I gave this horse a boner. I'll bring my skates, you bring your wallet and we'll all take some piccies.

Maybe this show is the real vaccine?
