The Lucky Strikes return with their fourth album 'The Exile And The Sea' with a hometown launch show at Club Riga, Westcliff-on-Sea on Friday 18 October. Tickets available from https://www.wegottickets.com/fbtswgt/event/237371
Homegrown UK Paisley Underground band The Wild Flowers play the second of their reunion shows on Saturday 19 October. Having already played a hometown show in Wolverhampton in August, they head down to London to play the What's Cookin' club at The Crown, 692 High Rd, Leytonstone, E11. They're supported by Marc Jeffrey of original Paisley Undergrounders, The Band Of Outsiders, and London newcomers Mark & The Clouds.Admission, as is usual on What's Cookin' nights, is free with the hat pased round for the bands.Formed in Wolverhampton in 1983, The Wild Flowers were initially part of the mid-eighties indie-jangle scene until their guitarist jumped ship to form The Mighty Lemon Drops. Recruiting new boy Dave Atherton, the band developed a much more American sound and soon built a strong national following as the support band of choice for visiting US Paisley Underground bands. Releasing a string of indie hit singles including ‘A Kind Of Kingdom’ and ‘Take Me for A Ride’, followed by the album Sometime Soon, they became the first British band to sign to legendary West Coast label Slash (Los Lobos, Violent Femmes, Green On Red) whose parent company Warner Bros fronted a reputed million dollar advance. Upping sticks to Hollywood with noted producer Matt Wallace (REM, The Replacements), their next album, the classic Tales Like These, was unleashed in 1990 on a UK public unfortunately more interested in Madchester and the rave scene. Frontman Neal Cook later returned with the alt.country band Saltflat, but the Flowers’ cult popularity has never waned and this is the second of only two reunion shows, inspired by their still loyal fanbase. This is a do-not-miss gig for all fans of alt.country and the Paisley Underground.
The Medicine Show podcast is now 2 hours, I'm doing an extra hour, imaginatively called "The Extra Hour" so I have more room for everyone's music and to plug your gigs, so let me know, if your touring.
Following on from the release of his acclaimed Born In The Summer album, Austin via New York songwriter Ash Gray returns to the UK at the end of July for a string of London dates.Born in the US to British parents, Gray first began to make inroads into the UK music scene when he visited from Austin, Texas and assembled the Anglo-American ‘punk-grass’ band, the High-Class Family Butchers. Achieving notoriety (and some airplay) with their back-porch covers of pop classics and guerrilla-gigging, the Butchers have continued over the years with a flexible line-up including members of Menlo Park, The Ralfe Band and folk poster-boy Seth Lakeman’s band. For a time they even included Harper ‘Son of Paul’ Simon, oddly enough.Ash will be playing at....Tues 23 The Royal Sovereign, Northwold Rd N16 (High Class Family Butchers reunion)Wed 24 What's Cookin' @ The Crown, Leytonsone High Rd E11 (with The Ugly Guys & Bob Collum)Thur 25 The Railway Tavern ale House, St Jude St, Dalston N16Fri 26 The Carpenter's Arms, Cambridge Heath Rd, Bethnal Green Sun 28 Come Down and Meet The Folks, The apple Tree, Mt Pleasant WC1

Once a year we take to the highways and byways with some friends to visit our friends with The Medicine Show Revue, here is this years line up and dates, we'll see you down the trail.
I just wanted to let you know that following on from the great response to their Black Music / White Music album and tour in February, Europe’s finest post-punk blues and roots outfit Stiv Cantarelli & The Silent Strangers return at the end of May for more dates.
In case you've forgotten, Stiv fronted Italian alt.country legends Satellite Inn, who were once snapped up by MoodFood Records in North Carolina to replace their departing cash cows Whiskeytown. Through touring solidly in the US, Stiv became close friends with Richmond Fontaine, who went on to back him on his 2011 solo album Innerstate.
The tour will be accompanied by the Three Sides EP, featuring the album tracks ‘Mahogany Jones’ and ‘Hundred Thousand Stones’, alongside a brand new song ‘Ten Minutes’ Drive’. The EP will be released digitally by Stovepony Records and distributed by Cargo from Tuesday 28 May, but special limited edition tour CDs featuring three different cover designs and different tracklisting will be available at gigs.
The full tour dates are….
Mon 27 May Railway Hotel, Southend-on-Sea
Tues 28 May 12 Bar Club, London
