Sheer accidentally take over The Ocelot!

It was to my complete surprise and awe to find in this months OCELOT magazine, a wonderful feature on SHEER MUSIC

Gig Monkey aka Ed Dyer has taken the trouble to write a lengthy piece praising our hard work for the past decade, which can be found on page 52 of Novembers issue. I won’t ruin it for you, so go have a read! 

Earlier in the issue, on page 49, is an excellent live review of our Crazy Arm show at The Lamb in Devizes, back in September – written by recent Sheer recruit, Rob Escott. Rob now has his hand firmly in with the Ocelotters, so we’re going to see more of his work. We’re also going to hear more of Rob, as he trots out a weekly radio session, every Wednesday on Melksham Town Sound, between 8 and 9pm, playing his favourite punk rock. There will be a short segment each week dedicated to “Sheers Suggestion” where I pick something, typically from an up and coming local show to wrap your ears around. Cheers Ocelot, cheers Rob!

Even further back in the issue on page 42, there’s a preview of the GNARWOLVES show in December. Andy gives the band a brief introduction, which I admit looks good on paper (Punktastic’s ones to watch for 2012), as well as naming all the supports – That’s what I love about the Ocelot, they cover everyone, no one gets left behind!

ALSO in the magazine, column space is given to kind of Devizes / Avebury / Swindon / Bristol / Anywhere based singer song writer TAMSIN WHINTON. We like Tamsin in Devizes. We had the privilege of providing her with her first show, offering her some great slots and I even recorded her first demo. It’s great to see that the rest of Wiltshire agrees! Catch her live, she’s always about, and making it further and further away all the time. (my personal preferred measure of success – How far can you get away from your home town!) 

So, much love and respect to The Ocelot, our only dedicated music fanzine. They are wonderfully supportive of the whole of Wiltshire’s music scene, and as proved by my Beans On Toast show, they make a massive difference!
