John Peel Night: Malcolm Middleton + Sky Larkin + The Loves + Sweet Baboo + Marc Riley
Born and raised in Falkirk, Scotland, Malcolm Middleton first found fame as a prominent member of Scottish lo-fi folk group Arab Strap. Middleton's solo career, which he ran alongside Arab Strap until their split in 2006, has provided a perfect outlet for his personal, harrowing and heartfelt songwriting. 'While his morale languishes somewhere in a cold Falkirk bedsit, melodically his songs whoop from mountain peaks.' – Observer Music Monthly.
Malcolm Middleton tour dates
Euphoric and atmospheric rock from indie-types Sky Larkin. Having toured with The Gossip, Broken Social Scene and iForward Russia!, this Leeds based trio are most certainly ones to watch. '...a glorious mixture of stupendous pop melodies, pleasing-to-the-eye personnel and a host of quirks to boot.' - Drowned In Sound.
Sky Larkin tour dates
Legendary psych-pop collective from Cardiff, who fuse Nuggets-style garage pop, bubblegum fuzz, sugar sweet indiepop, and hand-clapping, hip-shaking rock'n'roll. Favourites of Marc Riley and John Peel, for whom they recorded four sessions, including one live at Peel Acres, the band are fronted by Simon Love, whose "did-he-really-just-say-that?" style of stagecraft is entertainment itself.
The Loves tour dates
A native of the North Wales countryside, Sweet Baboo aka Stephen Black is a single minded, idiosyncratic singer possessing an ear for sparkling melody and a gift for a deft lyrical turn – from darkly funny to piercingly tender, twinkling boastful to deliciously self-deprecating.
Sometimes performing solo with an acoustic guitar, sometimes with a full electric band, his music is influenced by the likes of The Beach Boys, Daniel Johnston and Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci. but with a unique delivery all of his own.
