The combination of live bands - Thursday 27th August, 2009 - including the exquisite Life In Film - the Confession Booth, the Bloody Awful Poetry Art Gallery, the Bloody Awful Poetry DJs and the world famous (seriously) Bloody Awful Poetry Competition - plus some surprises – is irresistible!

Live bands:

Barefoot Confessor
The new London band on the tip of a lot of tongues right now. They don’t profess to being part of any scene, they’ve just quietly got on with doing what they do best, penning excellent songs, and they are clearly enjoying exciting times. With a strange mix of the quirkily complex and unbelievably catchy pop, they’re a thinking man’s guitar band, but don’t fall into shoegaze, rather their intelligence is met by their musical panache, making a sound that you can recline from, drawing from your pipe at the back of the venue, or gallop forwards and dance your inhibitions away to.

"...early days for a sure-to-be-huge group..." - Red

Kill It Kid

Kill It Kid
From the nourishing springs of Bath come the John Parish-approved ragtime-inspired purveyors of bruised blues. Kill It Kid take their name from a command on a Blind Wille McTell recording, which gives some idea of the swampy delta blues the five-piece conjure up. A vibrant blend of The White Stripes, barn dances and the sort of Stefan Grapelli-like fiddle-frenzy jazz/blues which might have formed the musical interlude on Pebble Mill At One. Truly majestical stuff which will be seeping through every pore of every radio DJ by the end of the year. Catch them now!

"Uncontrived, Kill It Kid are brave, raw talent" - BBC Newsbeat ‘Introducing’ March 09.

"The Bristol band ... boast one of the most devisive sounds around. Following in the likes of Anthony Hegarty and Wild Beats, KIK’s main man Chris Turpin has a deep and rich voice that will entice and enthrall as well as create confusion aplenty. We think it's beautiful and hope you do too" - Gigwise.

Life In Film
Hailing from Hackney, this truly exquisite four-piece demonstrate ability to pen perfectly crafted pop, yet manage to maintain a substantial amount of uniquness. The tunes themselves could come from any decade since the Sixties, such is their vast appeal; yet it’s the delicate use of the instruments, including a glockenspiel, and the controlled emotion in every vocal that gives them their independence and really sticks to the brain membrane. It’s sweet. It’s catchy. It’s clever. It’s perfect.

"Life In Film could well be the next great British band to emerge" - The Beat Surrender.

"London’s Life In Film are of that new ‘bar has been raised’ breed." - The Independent, Band Of The Week.
