That’s right, this Big Scary Monsters signed, art-rock, noise & rhythm London based 4 piece, featuring an Iranian and a Viking, announce a brief whistle stop tour of the UK, AND stream new material via, Feckingbahamas.com.
Once again I am over the frickin’ moon that we’ve managed to get a band of this calibre to Wiltshire. It feels even better to say County Town of Wiltshire AND the number #1 Most Up-and-Coming-place-to-live. Obviously because of all the cool shows. Natch.
AXES are the embodiment of fun. Furiously fast guitar work, bouncy fun rhythms and just a glorious cacophony of noise. Their last album, “Glory” says it all. On the cover they’ll all riding horseback. Horseback. I’ve run out of superlatives. They’re great if you like loud fun music.

Support for the show will be Bristol / Chippenham / area poly-rhythm band, HOGGS BISON.
You’ll remember them for their support slot to Alpha Male Tea Party at the Village Pump last August as a warm up to ArcTanGent, apt then this show is a warm up tp math festival Portals then.
Their debut album “Aeons” was marvellous and I’m proud as hell that we have musicians like this, following in the steps of Thought-Forms to showcase Wiltshire as a hotbed of experimental music.
Tickets for the show are available through TicketSource, WeGottickets or direct from Town Hall Arts.

I am delighted to say that advance tickets for out first St Mary’s Arts Centre event this Saturday, have sold out. The only place you can get tickets is a few limited numbers at WeGotTickets. http://www.wegottickets.com/event/260268.
We are advising to arrive promptly to grab one of the unobstructed views down the middle of the Arts Centre (Church), otherwise the wings may have a restricted view. There will be a licensed bar to the rear of the building.
Many thanks for the overwhelming support you have shown this project, an announcement will be made at the event detailing the full programme for the venue for the rest of the year, including my two further live music events. (you could just head to the gigs tab on your right to find that out my events quicker…)
8pm video show-reel of the 121212 Challenge and introduction of musicians.
9pm 30 piece orchestra performance.
(these times are strictly approximate)
You may have seen in the local community the proposed usage of St Mary Church in New Park Street? You can read about it on their website – http://www.stmarydevizestrust.org.uk/
This is a really exciting and massive opportunity for all of us in Devizes, get this right and we can have a purpose built, dedicated, permanent events venue like Salisbury Arts Centre in our town. Get it wrong, and we end up with nothing, or worse, another Assize Courts.
Next Thursday, the 24th October St Mary’s Trust (the trust behind this venture) have a meeting with planners at, Devizes School from 6pm – which anyone and everyone is invited to come and show their support, to hear what both trust committee and the planners have to say.
If you have even the slightest passing interest, or perhaps are a bit nosey, I encourage you all to come and listen to the debate. Every body that turns up, is positive proof that we want this in our town, and I really want this in our town.
Please sign up to the news letter on the St Mary’s Trust website. Please get involved, simply having a poster in your shop / house / car is enough to distribute the support. Or email in to Tony Scorer at Yahoo.com to voice your thoughts and support.
I have written an outline proposal to how I would use the venue in the future, and it obviously is based around the music, but a venue like this will be able to offer a lot more. Please get behind it!
