THE SHOWS JUST KEEP ROLLING’ 

This time, it’s our annual Love-In with “Hit Or Miss” shows aka Rob Dahl aka, MR Buckfast. 

Date for your diary is Saturday 23rd June 2018, at the Cheese & Grain, Frome. 

This is an uber special initial announcement, not only because we haven’t announced the headliners and already this is a strong line up, but also because Blueneck are doing something special. 

For those who don’t know them, let me introduce Bristol based, EMI-signed, much-bigger-in-Europe-than-in-blightly BLUENECK are one of those seminal bands that came out just before Thought-Forms but trod a similar postrock, avant garde path. 

I was first introduced to them by then Moles venue manager, Steve Wheedon back in 2004, who gave me their album, Scars Of The Midwest. It blew me away, around the same time I was getting into bands like Youthmovies, Hope Of The States, iLikeTrains and the like. 

ANYWAY, I digress, as for this show only, they will be performing their seminal 2nd album “The Fallen Host” in it’s entirety. Better still, the first 200 ticket holders will receive a FREE copy of the CD album too. So your £10 goes a long way…

Which reminds me, early bird tickets are £10, until we announce our headliners, at which point they’ll revert to £15. Tickets can be purchased via this link on the CAG website, https://cheeseandgrain.ticketsolve.com/shows/873584400. 

OK, so the rest of the line up is equally as exciting. After being booked to perform last year and falling sick at the 11th hour, we finally mark the belated welcome to Heartwork. I promise he won’t play every Swindon pop punk show this year, but he’s been due a show way out west, and has promised to turn up this time. 

Marking his first show for Sheer (and his first for Hit Or Miss)  in years, in a rarer than hens teeth full-band performance, we’re delighted to announce that BEN MARWOOD will be performing the acoustic stage. Thinking about it is already bringing a tear to my eye. I cannot wait for that. 

Lastly completing this initial announcement is underground EMO hero, Brightr (formally Gnarwolves tour manager) and noise juggernauts Deaf Horse from Bristol. 

So there you have it. I hope that was as exciting for you, as it was for me. Many thanks to Rob Dahl for the late night no-you-hang-up, phone conversations, we’re onto a winner this year!
