Shiiine On Mini Cruise: The Bluetones, Miles Hunt, John Power, Jay Lewis, Bentley Rhythm Ace, The Frank And Walters, Rick Witter, Paul Banks (Interpol), Gaz Whelan
Shiiine On are delighted to announce the third instalment of their Minicruise for March 2019.
Taking place over the weekend of 15th -17th March the Hull > Amsterdam jaunt will be headlined by The Bluetones and Miles Hunt of The Wonder Stuff.
There will also be live performances on board from Cast’s John Power & Jay Lewis, Bentley Rhythm Ace, The Frank & Walters, Mull Historical Society, The Seahorses’ Chris Helme, Ian Prowse (Amsterdam / Pele) and big beat legend Cut La Roc.
Bez & Rowetta bring their brand new club night “On The 6th Day God Created Manchester”. Rowetta will be doing a live PA and Bez will be doing Bez.
There will be a performance from Aziz Ibrahim and Inder Goldfiger who will celebrate 20 years of Ian Brown’s debut album ‘Unfinished Monkey Business’. Aziz and Inder made up Ian’s backing band as he entered a new dawn after The Stone Roses demise with a sublime debut offering.
In Amsterdam there will be a rare acoustic performance from Shed Seven’s Rick Witter and Paul Banks. Joining them is Gaz Whelan who will perform his Happy Mondays Undrugged set and Northside’s Dermo who will be on DJ duty.
That’s not it! There will also be a Britpop pub quiz hosted by Shed Seven’s Alan Leach and club night DJ sets from Little Indie Night and Liverpool’s iconic club night Liquidation.
Mark Morriss and the boys continue to go from strength to strength twenty years on. They appeared just as the Britpop boom was waning - which helped in getting their debut album 'Expecting To Fly' to the top slot in the UK charts. Musically, they endorse a tight but lithe sound, with a nod towards psychedelia, that falls somewhere between The Stone Roses, classic pop and a little touch of Oasis swagger.
The Bluetones tour dates
Lead singer and songwriter from Stourbridge indie-rockers The Wonder Stuff, Miles started his solo career after the band split in 1994. The Stuffies re-formed in 2000, and Miles has continued to tour as both a solo artist as well as with the band. Known for his dry wit as well as his songwriting talents, expect some banter, new songs and acoustic versions of one or two Wonder Stuff favourites.
Miles Hunt tour dates
Former bassist with The La's and singer/guitarist with 90's hit makers Cast, Power has also carved out a career of his own, releasing three solo albums in the Noughties. His solo work maintains the spirit of Cast songs, but also explores acoustic folk territory. He is now continuing both his solo career and touring with Cast.
John Power tour dates
West Midlands duo Mike Stokes and Richard March (former Pop Will Eat Itself) with a manic beat assault overladen with sampled kitsch. Their sound evolved in 1996 with the Ep 'Bentleys Gonna Sort You Out' - then followed a monthly residency at 'The Heavenly Social'. Their live performance is 'serious with a smirk' - they've dressed as Vikings in Iceland, Scousers in shell suits at MOS, ravers with vicks in Camden. These boys are wicked fun and very entertaining.
Bentley Rhythm Ace tour dates
Once upon a not-so-very-long-ago three friends from Cork decided to form a musical band. Their collective love of melody and God-given gift for a hook saw riches and acclaim bestowed on them from far and wide and they lived happily ever after safe in the knowledge that hard work, wonderful songs and honest talent would always win the day...
It's been a long, strange, beautiful journey for The Franks, who in the 90s flirted with the charts on this continent and others, but no-one can deny they made their mark. Hell, there's even an all-girl Japanese Franks tribute band! Sing along to After All, Fashion Crisis Hits New York, This Is Not A Song and Happy Busman.
The Frank And Walters tour dates
Famed former lead singer of Shed Seven, born and raised in York. His former band having split in 2003 (thirteen years after their formation), Rick now performs solo and with his new indie-rock ensemble The Dukes, who are venturing into the 21st century with a brand new collection of songs and a hark back to the good ol' days with some classic Shed numbers.
Rick Witter tour dates
