  • Fragile Creatures – The Brunswick – 23rd February 2018

    Fragile Creatures - The Brunswick - 23rd February 2018 Fragile Creatures – The Brunswick – 23rd February 2018 In their first show of 2018, Fragile Creatures return to the Brighton scene and bring with them a feel good start to the weekend whilst showcasing some of the freshest rising talents coming out of Brighton. Opening tonight are Bloom, whose fresh style of indie-pop and fluffy melodies are enough to bring a smile to even the coldest of nights. The band have a great deal of fun whilst performing, with smiles and chemistry constantly ongoing through the duration of their set. The group’s vocalists bounce off each other brilliantly and generate some truly graceful harmonies whilst some incredible bass work brings a remarkable sense of funk to the performance.
  • The Great Escape Festival 2017 - 18th-20th May 2017

    The Great Escape Festival 2017 -  18th-20th May 2017 The Great Escape Festival 2017 -  18th-20th May 2017 Another year, and another huge comedown after the exhilaration of three days of heady music, heavy bodily abuse, and heaving bodies. It’s kind of the same as a festival in a field, minus the camping, and the mud. There are more than 450 performances on over 30 stages, played out to an overall audience of 20,000. Like a traditional festival, there is plenty of schlepping from one stage to the next, re-fuelling at various points, staying up too late and getting up too early. Crucially though, almost everyone is here to actually watch and listen to music, and everyone has a real...
  • Brightonsfinest Alternative Escape Show 2017

    Brightonsfinest Alternative Escape Show 2017 Brightonsfinest are excited to announce our latest Alternative Escape showcase at St. Mary's Church. It's our third year running a free entry stage, offering a killer line-up that's open to the public and Great Escape festival goers alike. We're pretty proud to be able to say the line-ups that we've curated have rivaled the official festival stages, whilst offering bills with more of a local focus, and this year is no different. Brighton headliners The Fiction Aisle create epic progressive pop that seems perfectly pitched to soar up into the high rafters of this year's venue: the beautiful gothic setting of St Mary The Virgin in Kemptown. We're excited to be...
  • King Mob Launch Party – The Green Door Store – 2nd April 2017

    King Mob Launch Party – The Green Door Store – 2nd April 2017 King Mob Launch Party – The Green Door Store – 2nd April 2017 I walk into the Green Door Store in Brighton unsure of what to expect from tonight’s show. Brighton’s hipster elite have all donned their glad rags and gathered to celebrate the launch of King Mob magazine. The Facebook page describes King Mob as “dedicated to giving a platform to creatives in the UK and celebrating the underground talent we encounter day to day”. Having a peek online, the magazine has the feel of a Zine, it celebrates the DIY scene, its ethic and has bags of personality along with a very home-made feel.

  • Oxjam Worthing Takeover - 2014

    Oxjam Worthing Festival - 2014 Oxjam Worthing Festival - 2014 Back in the 1960s Worthing was a key stop off point for music’s best performers, accommodating greats like Jimmy Hendrix, The Who and Cream. But since that era [them glory days of British music], Worthing mainly hosts only revival bands from yester year and classical music all aimed at an ageing audience. Recently, new venues have been popping up and it’s starting to attract the big names again such as The Horrors. This year, Worthing put on its first Oxjam Festival, which is a nationwide festival run by volunteers to raise money for the good work they do to support the world’s poorest people. For the day of music, they used The Lighthouse Café, Thieves’ Kitchen, The Warwick, The Vintners (that are all on Warwick Street), and Bar 42 (on...
  • Fragile Creatures - The Komedia Studio - 15th September 2014

    Fragile Creatures Fragile Creatures - The Komedia Studio - 15th September 2014 Billed as a more stripped down version of their regular stage show, Fragile Creatures took to the stage at the Komedia Studio with a little apprehension about how they would come across, particularly with new and not-so-new songs having a slightly different emphasis. However any fears they may have had were soon dispelled by an eagerly enthusiastic audience. The strength and depth of their songs, together with their overall performance, which was of the highest calibre, made for an extremely engaging and bloody good night out.
  • Fragile Creatures - EP

    Fragile Creatures - EP Fragile Creatures - EP Well this has been a long time coming and well worth the wait. It has been a long time since Fragile Creatures released their first and only single 'Dear Michael' but they have been busy since then. With plenty of gigs under their belt, a stable lineup, a few trips to the studio and a lot of rehearsing they have really developed their sound. This EP is collection of songs that have been kicking around for a while and released to fill the gap till their first full album which should be available next year.
  • Oxjam Brighton - 2013

    Oxjam Festival 2013 Oxjam Festival - 26th October 2013 You may not have heard of Oxjam before but it's a bit like The Great Escape for charity. A number of venues around the town allow you entry with a wristband brought from Oxfam, the charity behind the venture, or by a donation on the door. The bands playing are mainly local bands and as the wristband is only £5 it's a great way to check out some...
  • Fragile Creature - The Blind Tiger Club - 2013-08-22

    Fragile Creatures Myniemoe - Fragile Creatures - The Blind Tiger Club - 22nd August 2013 It was a balmy night at The Blind Tiger Club for the first ‘Fragile Creature Feature’, a new quarterly night curated by Fragile Creatures. For this first show they decided to present MynieMoe as headliners with an acoustic set from The Bearded Monster to open up and a DJ set from Teen Creeps Luther Ivan Dross to close – a very impressive lineup for a free entry show. The crowd were a little slow to emerge so The Bearded Monster took to the stage in front of a fairly quiet room – despite this he got off to a great start playing two of my all time favourites ‘Dead End Street’ by The Kinks and ‘Moondance’ by Van Morrison sung with a coarse gruffness through a false beard that was really quite...
