BIG FISH 7 – HUGE THANKS
Now, I know we say this after every Big Fish show, but huge thanks need to go to everyone involved with Big Fish 7 – Marketing Events, the student promo team, the Media crew (staff and students), Cockpit staff, all of our punters and of course the fabulous Spills, Post War Glamour Girls and Random Impulse! Was a truly fantastic evening and we look forward to Big Fish 8!
Review by one of our students for the Yorkshire Evening Post is here. Photos and videos to follow!
Big Fish 7 Review
BIG FISH 7 IS COMING
Friday 8th March at The Cockpit, to be specific.
But who is on the bill this time?
Two brilliant local bands, for a start. Wakefield’s The Spills released their debut album, ‘Occam’s Razor’ last year, following support slots with the likes of Dinosaur Pile-Up and appearances at Live at Leeds and Tramlines festivals. You can have a listen here – http://thespills.bandcamp.com/album/occams-razor
Leeds’ own Post War Glamour Girls have set tongues wagging since bursting onto the scene in 2011. Described as somewhere between Tom Waits and Grinderman, the guys (and gal) won the right to open the NME/Radio 1 stage at last year’s Reading & Leeds festivals – something which became all the more special when Green Day’s surprise appearance on that stage shifted them up the bill one!
Our headliner is the fantastic Random Impulse. Due to play Big Fish 6 but curtailed by illness, he’s making good his word – which is great for us as big things are expected!
Championed by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Random Impulse has performed support slots for Tinchy Stryder, Professor Green and Ed Sheeran and last year completed a UK tour with Rizzle Kicks as well as playing Bestival and headlining the Hackney Weekender. His new single is out in late February and we’ve got him in March!
Tickets are free for Leeds City College students, or can be bought for just five English Pounds from Luna Tickets online, Crash Records and Jumbo Records.
Big Fish VI Making Waves YEP Review
Well, despite the late withdrawal of Random Impulse due to illness (don’t worry, he’s hoping to play Big Fish 7!) the hundreds of people who came to Big Fish 6 still witnessed a fantastic trio of bands. The excellent Marsicans stepped in at late notice, they were followed by local favourites I Call Shotgun and finally the fantastic Little Barrie wowed the crowd with a set packed full of songs from latest album King of the Waves. You can read a review in ‘Line-Ups and Reviews’. Photos and video footage coming soon!
