We have invited some of the finest female and non-binary fronted local talent to The Book & Record Bar for Saturday Sheningans, as we have a band line up for the first time! We will also be raising money on the night for Bloody Good Period, which provides period supplies to asylum seekers, refugees and those who can’t afford them!
Here’s our Line Up…
Xylo Aria is a plastic bag hating, keep cup loving, menstrual cup wearing singer/producer. In her opinion, there is no better medium than music through which to discuss the issues which in some way impact all of us. She’s recently moved into self-production, allowing her to bring these goals to the forefront of her music creation and has tackled topics such as animal rights and conformity in her music
Influences: FKA Twigs, The Weeknd, James Blake & Banks
*Solo mission by Jemma Freeman, expect high energy performances and compositions of cosmic content*
The Cosmic Something is the first solo project by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Jemma Freeman. Known previously for their songwriting and guitar work with dreamy psych band Landshapes (Bella Union) and new wave art band The Fucks, Jemma has taken these two approaches and tinged them with energetic glam rock. She’s also graced the airwaves on Tom Robinson (6 Music) & Jon Kennedy (Radio X) and received praise for her recent performance at Rockaway Beach by Drowned in Sound
Influences: Throwing Muses, Captain Beefheart, PJ Harvey, Cyndi Lauper & T-Rex
Expect Feminist Psychadellica & Acid Punk, and knack for societal commentary, righteous anger, and political rage but pulling from a broader musical palette than just ‘70s punk. They’ve caught the ears of BBC 6 Music on Steve Lamacq, Iggy Pop, Tom Ravenscroft to name a few. Lead Singer Melodie Holliday is active within Decolonise Collective & Loud Women as well as being a mother to two members of Skinny Girl Diet, themselves no stranger to healthy feminist meander!
Influences: Sonic Youth, X-Ray Spex, The Damned & Hole
Tits of Death were an awesome all-girl rockband based in London. Once described by Time Out as a cross between the Shangri-Las and Slayer, they were christened a ’10 breasted rock machine’ by The Londonist. Their unusual line-up consisted of two basses, bad-ass guitar, synth, drum machine and a singer so powerful she once blew out a PA. Together they rocked people’s faces off across Europe, playing shows in Barcelona, Berlin, Porto, Malmo and the UK – everything from the 100 Club to Madame Jojos to co-headlining Hawkfest on Hawkwind’s personal request. Their raison detre? Blood red lipstick, fishnets, hairspray, plentiful snacks and a killer heel.
T.o.D.’s very own Titania Tornado and Miss Kitty Darling are reuniting to grease the wheels of steel with the very best female-fronted tracks and girl-rock-heroes.
