Keiron Phelan and Peace Signs + Grifter Kid and the Midnight Raiders
Keiron Phelan and Peace Signs return to the SJQ. Baroque pop songs about Hippy priests, hippie girlfriends, scandi-noir heroines, Japanese satellites, jealousy, Jingoism, Moon landings and Millwall.
“Bristling with outre, all star indie talent, Peace Signs is as witty as it is charming, as wry as it is inventive” – Greg Healey (Shindig!)
“Neil Hannon with a hint of Bill Fay’s wisdom” – Jenny Bulley (MOJO)
Grifter Kid and the Midnight Raiders are a hybrid of primarily folk/jazz/country genres utilising varying styles and moods to deliver finely crafted storytelling – a consummate band of players fronted by singer songwriter Karl Theobald.
“Turning eclecticism into a quality hallmark, the band arrives brimming with finely wrought, feistily essayed songs” – David Shepherd (MOJO)
“Beautifully constructed, compellingly performed, supremely absorbing” – Simon Rowland (R2 magazine)
