Bread & Circus
Bread & Circus is the musical vanity-project of London-based Glaswegian Fraser Parry and a number of his very talented friends and associates. They are self-releasing their debut EP, Thankyou, a quirky collection of humorous but heartfelt songs about solipsism, enjoying oneself, and the irrepressible passage of time. Expect sardonic lyricism, orchestral instrumentation, and rough-around-the-edges charm.
Playing alongside the band will be the iconoclastic Men Diamler, whose comedic and confrontational live performances are quite unlike anything else you’ll see. His idiosyncratic trail has left in its midst a series of obscure but wonderful home-made releases, festival appearances, mammoth 28 hour DJ sets and radio sessions. In 2017, he featured on the Stick In The Wheel-curated compilation ‘English Field Folk Recordings Volume 1’ and is currently working on a new release expected to drop in 2018. Tickets are £6 for entry alone, or £10 including a copy of limited edition Thankyou zine, featuring words and artwork by Stuart Nixon and Fraser Parry, and a unique download code for the EP.
Additional zines and codes will be on sale at the gig.
