Never miss another 'Stackridge' show
Prog rock, psych, Beatlesque powerpop, folk or even the precursors of Britpop? And that's not even including their late 70's skinny tie, New Wave stint in the UK Top 20 as The Korgis!
Either way James Warren and Andy Davis - aka Stackridge are an unmissable live act aided and abetted by the "Scottish Firebrand" Clare Lindley on Violin, Eddie John on Drums and Glenn Tommey on Keyboards. With a pedigree that stretches to over 40 years of eccentric, perfect,quintessentially English music Stackridge are truly timeless and uncategorisable.

"Taking the more muted moments of Florence + The Machine, a more accessible Portishead and Ellie Goulding’s angrier little sister and mixing it in a sparse little electro sound-lab has created something particularly enthralling. The beats gently lurch forwards while the electric melodies pulse and sparkle in the shadows allowing Mostyn’s voice to take centre stage in all its breathy elegance." Listen with Monger blogspot.
The Blackheart Orchestra are a British singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist duo comprising long term collaborators Chrissy Mostyn and Richard Pilkington.
The band blend musical styles in a non-conformist way seamlessly sidestepping boundaries to create their unique, highly individual, emotion-drenched music.
One moment their sound is minimalist and fragile, weaving melodies and atmospherics with silence to create ethereal musical landscapes that leave audiences and critics describing their work as haunting, enchanting and captivating. Other times the pair create a mountain-like wall of sound using ancient synthesisers, electronic drums, acoustic, electric and bowed guitars and bass to create vast energetic symphonic climaxes.
The band have drawn comparisons to Kate Bush, Ellie Goulding, London Grammar, Pink Floyd, Steve Reich and Ludovico Einaudi.
The Blackheart Orchestra have toured extensively in the UK, Australia and New Zealand and are touring with 60s legend Melanie Safka before embarking on a headline tour of Europe in November.
