The beauty and the beauties from THE GREAT MALARKEY are coming!!!!
** The Great Malarkey **
“Rambunctious and right on the edge of control… one of the freshest sounds I’ve picked up this year” – Music-news.com
Releasing their second album in early 2017 on Batov Records, ‘Doghouse’ delivers not only the continued raucous energy of their live shows, as showcased in their first album ‘Badly Stuffed Animals’, but the eventual bruising, vulnerability of the morning after the night before.
Influenced by the likes of Tom Waits, The Pixies, The Pogues, Beirut, Nick Cave, Fanfare Ciocarlia, Manu Chao, The Dead Brothers and Toots and the Maytals (the latter of whom they supported with only their third gig), The Great Malarkey are riotous mix of musical styles and genres delivered in a “multicultural train of fast beats and trembling slams of punk-folk spirit”.

Drawing on their experience of over six years of extensive touring, with shows at Bestival (UK), the London Olympics, Boomtown (UK), Colours of Ostrava (CZ), Tønder Festival (DK), to name but a few, and mainstream airplay in both the UK and Denmark, The Great Malarkey continue to delight audiences across the UK and Europe with their explosive, “balls to the wall”, high energy live shows.
** DIN /drowned.in.noise **
Four chaps, four instruments, three voices and a confluence of styles ranging from gypsy jazz to British indie, alternative folk to flamenco et cetera, The Din are surely hard to pigeon-hole. It’s essentially acoustic music, but don’t expect sultry ballads… more relentless, upbeat mash-up.
Originating from Newcastle-upon-Tyne they now reside in London, where the notoriety of the band’s high-octane live shows has led them to perform regularly across Europe and at many of the UK’s top venues and festivals, including Glastonbury and Isle of Wight as well as support slots with Babyshambles, Carl Barat, Adam Green and Frank Turner.
