GiddyUp Music @ The Wheatsheaf, Oxford review

GiddyUp Music at The Wheatsheaf Oxford review

Welcome to another GiddyUp Funday Sunday at the Wheatsheaf here in Oxford, England. What a great turn out it was, and a fine line up of entertainment to compliment the good folk who had come along to enjoy some of Oxford’s finest tunesmiths.

Purple May started the ball rolling with our acoustic guitar, harmonica and harmony vocals. We were breaking in a new cover today as well as one of our own too. “Because The Night” written by Bruce Springsteen and “Great escape” written by us! (Listen to Purple May – “Great Escape!”)

Soon we were passing the baton on to Waterfahl. That is Finn and Hanne, this was their first time playing a GiddyUp show with us downstairs at The Wheatsheaf, they are an acoustic duo with Hanne singing and playing excellent harmonica and Finn on the guitar. He has a great rhythm style and a percussive guitar technique. A stand out moment for me was their version of “Space Oddity”, a David Bowie classic. Hanne’s use of the harmonica on this was unique. Even their own songs had us singing along like we had heard them before. We look forward to having Waterfahl back soon. Waterfahl website

Megan Josephy is a singer/songwriter who we have enjoyed hosting over the last year, but this time she brought Mike the drummer with her and have called themselves Jinjacooze. This was their first show playing together and they really had the the bar rocking. Megan has a very strong voice and an individual style of music. She is always a favourite here at GiddyUp and Mike was a really good addition to her armoury.

After rearranging the furniture and packing the drums away we were ready to make space for Tom Ivey. He played an acoustic set, bluesy old favourites, and rousing the crowd into full singalong and dancing mode. This guy is a natural behind the guitar and is good with the chat between songs also, you have to get to see him live with his band or acoustically he is always very entertaining. Tom Ivey Band has an album release soon, there is a link here to a teaser from their forthcoming material.

Lastly but definitely not least was No Horses, a brilliant blues rock band who we are lucky enough to be able to call local. You know, to get to hear music as good as this at the end of a bar in Oxford on a Sunday evening is a bit special to say the least. If you like your blues then you have to check these guys out next time they’re playing. Toward the end of the set Tom Ivey joined them and cranked it up to 11 with some excellent lead guitar work.

Thanks to all who came to the show and turned it into a party. Thanks to everyone who played and a special thanks to the staff at The Wheatsheaf. See you next time!

The Dandy Warhols release new video featuring Joe Dallesandro

The Dandy Warhols release new video “You Are Killing Me” featuring Andy Warhol superstar Joe Dallesandro

New album ‘Distortland’ out April 8, 2016 on Dine Alone Records

“Still looking dandy after all these years.”Mojo

“Several steps ahead of being the last swingers in town.”Q

“Distortland is one of those rare beasts that doesn’t have a single duff track on it.”Disc of the Day / The Arts Desk

The Dandy Warhols are excited to share a video for their single, You Are Killing Me starring Joe Dallesandro, who is best known for his well known roles in Andy Warhol films. Dallesandro, who also graced the cover of Rolling Stone in 1971, has rarely appeared on camera in the last 20 years making his involvement all the more exciting.

The video was directed by Mark Helfrich who notes:

“The concept for the video came out of Courtney’s desire to have a film featuring not only Joe Dallesandro, but furries as well. I thought Joe had the perfect look for a Film Noir setting so I came up with a trippy treatment and everybody signed off on it. The day before shooting, I got a message that Zia was flying to Los Angeles because she wanted to be the Bunny! So Zia’s the Bunny. I was thrilled to work with the iconic Joe Dallesandro. He hasn’t acted much in the past couple of decades, but he wanted to do this project because he digs the Dandy Warhols. It was an honor to direct him.”

The Dandy Warhols release their new album Distortland Friday 8th April 2016 on Dine Alone Records. Hear it today streaming at The Independent and pre-order the album from iTunes, Spotify and all digital retailers.

Watch video: The Dandy Warhols – “You Are Killing Me”

Formed in Portland, Oregon in 1994, the band features Courtney Taylor-Taylor (vocals, guitar), Zia McCabe (keyboards), Peter Holmstrom (guitar), and Brent DeBoer (drums).
