Local solo singer song writer Ben Marwood received some good news at the end of 2010, that the debut album that he had recorded was going to be released by London based record label Xtra Mile (home to Frank Turner and Chris TT) After many years of hard slog and dozens and dozens of gigs, Ben is a perfect example that hard work can finally pay off.
His début album Outside There’s A Curse was recorded in Reading over a period of weeks during 2010 with the help of various friends. It is a great début offering, a collection of the his best songs of the last five years.
It is a must buy for any fan of a great song, a must buy for any fan of music, it is a must buy record.
Pre-order the album from Amazon here:
QUIET QUIET BAND
Reading finest band, made up of ex members of Heartwear Process and Mass Hysteria.They are currently on fire. They deal in a sassy form of UK flavoured folk country.Think Low, Sparklehorse and Modest Mouse. A mighty fine band and they deserve to be on this bill.
Oxygen Thief sings loud, plays an acoustic guitar, stamps on fx pedals, lives in Bristol, wears Doc Marten boots, drinks whisky, collects Be@rbricks, and wants to be your friend.
