The Pink Diamond Revue / Duchess / Go On Do It Jump / Ben Pilston @ The Wheatsheaf, Oxford
Saturday 14 March 2015, 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
£3 (advance) / £5 (door)
The Pink Diamond Revue: “Reading duo Pink Diamond Revue’s guitarist Tim Lane holds that air of subtle menace about him, his sullen, hollowed-out, gum-chewing demeanour giving him the look of a 1950s thug. Musically too the band offer an often oppressive sound from the darker edges of the 50s, Tim’s subterranean surf shimmer hovering wraith-like over drummer Rob’s beats, electronics and vocal samples from old B-movies, tracks building up into rockabilly dirges that make the band sound like Death In Vegas jamming it out with Dick Dale and Bo Diddley in some dark, dank basement.” – Nightshift.
Duchess: Three percussionists and some sweet, sweet harmonies!
Go on Do it Jump: Founded in September 2011 with a shared love of summery melodic rock from both sides of the Atlantic, GODIJ set about writing songs that reflected this with a simple mantra – to play what they love and love what they play.
Ben Pilston: One of the Oxford singer song-writers that stood out at an acoustic showcase last year.
