LONDON CALLING: ‘122 MUSIC MANAGEMENT’ ANNOUNCE INAUGURAL SHOWCASE EVENT
122 MUSIC MANAGEMENT are gearing up to present some of the finest unsigned acts from the London scene and beyond at their 8-ball Clearance event at the iconic AMERSHAM ARMS, on Friday, July 21st.
An eclectic mix of artists – whose styles do not clash but build towards the closing set – have been assembled with opening band PEACH the first to take to the stage.
“We want our tunes to be jagged, slightly askew but immediate,” said singer, Cam McColl. “We take our cues on melody from Michael Head and other Scouse geniuses like Ian McCulloch, Lee Mavers, and Elvis Costello. We try to tell stories. About lonely Anglicans; the city’s lifeless crunch; seagulls by the seaside. Uchronic England. We call it: Railway Pop.”
Next up and borrowing textures from the 90s shoegaze and alternative bands that formed their earliest musical influences, THE YEAR IN PICTURES present a lush, sonic palette that serves as a modern and forward-thinking take on the genre.
Penultimate performers indifferentMonKeY have been inspired by many but copy no-one. Formed by songwriter/producer Joe Lowe, over the past 18 months they have developed their own ‘original sound,’ with the band’s debut album, ‘Love & Peace,’ released in February.
In January 2023, indifferentMonKeY won the best band 2022 Award at the Radio WigWam/Jamma Music Awards. On the bill for Deva Fest In August 2023 (headliners include Morcheeba, StarSailor & Feeder), the Amersham Arms gig represents the first opportunity to see them after growing their live music following across the North West.
And headlining 122 Music Management’s inaugural event will be the ‘French Brixtonian,’ LEWCA.
In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, artists like The Streets, M.I.A., Cornershop and Gorillaz created a distinctly middle-class English style of music that mixed the multicultural sounds of their home with Alt/Rock and Hip-hop of the day. Lewca takes the same approach, with the added influence of his adopted mainland home and his own unique wit.
Born & raised in Brixton, Lewca currently lives in Normandy, has three kids and a mortgage and a semi-domesticated hedgehog named ‘Sonic.’
