CD Front Cover for poster For regular updates on this event click here. Two fantastic Glastonbury bands are teaming up with an amazing artist for a very special event in the Red Brick Building on Saturday 14th June. Mr Keep Calm & The Cancelled Cheques and Minor Works Unit have built up a reputation for quirky songwriting and crowd pleasing performances. They will be launching their brand new albums while Glastonbury based artist Sarah Stanislaus will be meeting art lovers for a personal guided tour of her exhibition. Minor Works Unit were formed in 2012 and feature the vocal talents and mesmerising presence of lead singer Dan Bradford. Working with material that takes in the lyrical beauty of pigs, lost fivers and beards, their musical style is apparently from the “Bitzah” music tradition and described in their own words as “chutney powered chunkalunk,” something that might confuse until you hear them. With skewed lyrics and a stage show to match they’re guaranteed to keep audiences entertained. Their new album, “I’m To Blame”, is released at the event and will be available on CD, iTunes and Amazon. MWU2 Digital cover Mr Keep Calm & The Cancelled Cheques were formed in 2013 around the solo artist Mr Keep Calm. Awarded Central Somerset Gazette’s Musician of the Year in 2011 as a soloist, Mr Keep Calm and co melds social commentary with wry lyrics and catchy, acoustic music. They have wowed with early gigs and have gained the attention of the festival circuit. The new album, “Digest”, features the same feisty formula that has been a trademark of past releases. Written and recorded with a number of collaborators, it ranges from pop to skiffle, but all tied up with distinctive lyrical and playing styles. The album is to be released at the event on CD, iTunes and Amazon. Aside from the musical mayhem, the exhibiting artist Sarah Stanislaus will be holding a meet and greet where you can find out more about the artworks in her first exhibition for the Red Brick Building. Sarah produces her work by looking at natural forms such as landscapes and the close up detail of natural substances such as plants, leaves, bark, beach formations and water, and then painting them in an abstract way. 10177439_611895696798_1226731203090355067_nThe work is presented mostly in acrylic on canvas and has a textural quality due to the application of the paint and other materials. The art meet starts at 7.30pm and is free with doors opening to the event space for the album launches at 8.30pm with a £3 donation.
