Taking place in the Archway Room at Arden Rd (limited capacity so advance tickets recommended). After 5 years of trying we've finally landed Las Kellies from Argentina.
“They boast what is clearly an encyclopaedic understanding of all the best bits of new wave both sides of the atlantic, plus the fortitude to throw the rulebook clean out the window and sometimes sound just like themselves.” NME
This year Fire is going to release 6th Las Kellies album, *Friends & Lovers*, with classic and mature post punk/rock
sounds and lyrics that browse between all sorts of ways of expressing love.
Starting November, Las Kellies are coming back to the Old World for the sixth time around Europe and UK !
Comprised of guitarist Ceci, drummer Sil and bassist Manu, Las Kellies cut their teeth on the Argentinian music scene, patterning their sound after the raw post-punk of 70's all-female groups like the Slits and the Raincoats. After releasing independently two punky dancey and new wave-inspired albums, Las Kellies signed in 2010 to Fire Records for their third outing, *Kellies*. In 2011 Fire released the 7" split *Erase you*, with both Las Kellies and ESG versions. In the next LP released by Fire, *Total Exposure*, dub and hip-hop influence turned the raw and wild post-punk of Las Kellies into a more elegant and shiny sound.
The Black Isle
"Epic” – Alternative Tracks.
Imagine if the Pixies and Smashing Pumpkins made a baby with Nirvana... It would sound a bit like The Black Isle. Trashy guitars, driven drums and Megan Reece's vocals inject a well needed shot of grunge into the minds of the X Factor Generation. Sick with the rat race and all its greed The Black Isle formed to act as an antidote, to energise the soul and escape from the mindless consumerism. It's not about achievements, fame and being stars. It's about how the music makes us feel.
