1  Tinyfish Wibble / Other Bands / ROBERT REED RELEASES SANCTUARY II on June 10th 2016 on: April 08, 2016, 02:00:56 PM

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DhvEr-tRFE

Tigermoth Records is pleased to announce the  release of the follow up to the acclaimed 2014 “Sanctuary” album by multi-instrumentalist and producer Robert Reed (Magenta / Kompendium / Kiama / Chimpan A).

“Sanctuary II” is produced, mixed and engineered by Reed, who also plays most of the instruments himself, although for this new album he is joined by legendary drummer Simon Phillips (Toto / Mike Oldfield/The Who) while the original “Tubular Bells” production team of Tom Newman and Simon Heyworth have once again made important contributions to the sound of the album.

Robert comments about the spirit behind the two Sanctuary albums:

“There's a well known interview with Mike Oldfield in which he said that he was so disappointed that nobody had carried the torch forward that he had lit with 'Tubular Bells' - creating long form music; completely hand- played with real instruments; music that relied on emotion and melody; music you could lose yourself in. What I am trying to do with the “Sanctuary ”albums is to carry that ideal forward.”

Robert also discusses the participation of legendary drummer Simon Phillips on "Sanctuary II":

“I wanted to do something different on this new album. I had played all the instruments on the first, so this time I decided to use real drums. There was one person at the top of my wish list, and it was  Simon Phillips. I grew up listening to Simon's playing on Mike Oldfield’s “Crises” album, and went to see him play with Mike at Wembley. I could never had thought, then, that one day he would play on my own album. I feel amazingly lucky. His trademark sound is perfect for the album. It really has taken 'Sanctuary II' to another level."

The album will be released as a 3 disc set. CD1 will contain the new album while CD2 includes unreleased tracks, remixes and Tom Newman's alternative mixes. The third disc will be  a DVD containing the 5.1 mix of the album and various promotional videos.

The album can be pre-ordered from www.robreedofficial.co.uk
A vinyl version will also be available from www.planegroovy.com

The album will be preceded by the release of a digital EP “Marimba” on April 18th taken from "Sanctuary II". The EP will contain 4 tracks and will be available from the Robert Reed band camp site.

2  Tinyfish Wibble / Other Bands / Steve Thorne - Land of Imbeciles. Released April 1 on: March 13, 2016, 05:01:44 PM
April 1 will see the release of Steve Thorne's keenly anticipated 5th studio album "Land of Imbeciles".

Steve had produced ten new, finely crafted songs which make up this new album, possibly his last solo project.

The album features his regular collaborators Nick D'Virgilio (Big Big Train, Ex-Spocks Beard) and the legendary Tony Levin (King Crimson) plus acclaimed solo artist Robin Armstrong and well-known British musician James McLaren.  Steve plays all other instruments, indeed some tracks are genuine solo efforts!

Steve's lyrics are hard hitting and passionate, a mixture of political comment,  opinion and a lamentation of the current state of modern life, and it's affect on people both spiritually and physically.

As usual, Steve's musical influences are wide ranging and varied, and combined with his honest, sincere and often brutal social comment, these fifty minutes of impassioned song writing will leave the listener completely engaged in what is probably the hardest -hitting and most musically adept album of his career.  It is simply not to be missed.

Available to pre-order at www.whiteknightrecords.co.uk

3  Tinyfish Wibble / Other Bands / Summers End Festival 2016 - venue and full line up announced on: January 24, 2016, 05:48:01 PM
We are delighted to announce that the Festival - which takes place on September 30th
and October 1st and 2nd 2016 will once again be held at the Drill Hall, Lower St, Chepstow

We are also thrilled to be able to announce - for the first time since the first event in 2005 - the ENTIRE line up.  Weekend tickets are now on sale at the same prices as last year: £115 for hero tickets, £100 for sponsor tickets and £80 for standard weekend tickets from
http://www.summersend.co.uk/ticket_sales2016.htm

Day tickets and the day splits will be announced soon. Remember that the Festival sold out last year, so early purchasing is recommended.

Now the line up:

IQ (UK)
www.iq-hq.co.uk

Making their second appearance at the Festival 8 years after their first, we welcome back the remarkable IQ, with Peter Nicholls and Mike Holmes still at the helm, and original drummer Paul Cook now back in the band, plus Tim Esau (Bass) and Neil Durrant (Keys) now making up that classic prog 5 piece.  The band's live excursions are relatively rare these days, so this one is not to be missed.

Magic Pie (Norway)
www.magicpie.net

After their unfortunate late cancellation last year, we have already announced the appearance of Magic Pie from Norway, whose live shows have wowed audiences all over the world, particularly in the USA, where their performances at Rosfest have taken on legendary status.  The bands most recent album, 2015's "King for a Day" was rapturously received and this appearance should be similarly inspiring.

RPWL (Germany)
www.rpwl.de

Another band who nearly played the festival in 2014, RPWL from Bavaria in Germany are another very welcome returning band having last played in 2009.  Since then, the group have gone from strength to strength having released their last studio album - Wanted -  in 2014 and an album of Pink Floyd songs in 2015.

Knight Area (Netherlands)
www.knightarea.com

We are very excited to welcome Knight Area from Holland to the festival for the first time.  The band last played in the UK seven years ago, so are somewhat overdue a return. The band have remained extremely active since, releasing their latest album Hyperdrive in 2014 and a live DVD of the same name last year to great acclaim.

Karnataka (UK etc)
www.karnataka.org.uk

Like RPWL, Karnataka last played the festival in 2009, although only bassist Ian Jones and guitarist Enrico Pinna remain from that line up.  More importantly, the band's 2015 album "Secrets of Angels" with new vocalist Hayley Griffiths, saw them move into a more symphonic Prog- metal direction, so expect  a very exciting surprise if you haven't seen them live for a while!

Seven Steps to the Green Door (Germany)
www.ssttgd.de

We have admired the sophisticated Prog stylings of Seven Steps to the Green Door for some time, and following their bold new album "Fetish" we are very pleased to bring them to Chepstow for their first UK appearance.  The band features Marek Arnold - who some might remember from his appearance with UPF in 2014 - and dual vocalists Anne Trautmann and Lars Köhler.

Strangefish (UK)
www.strangefish.co.uk

Another band returning to the festival are award-winning Manchester- based band Strangefish who first played for us - gulp - 10 years ago at the Robin. The band are in their second incarnation after a 5 year plus hiatus and are hard at work on their third album.  New bassist Carl Howard joins the band in this new incarnation as well as backing vocalist Jo Whittaker, but otherwise the band are a good as ever.  Expect inflatables!

Damanek featuring Guy Manning (UK etc)
www.guymanning.com

Damanek is a new project featuring new material by Guy Manning and likely to feature the talents of Dan Mash (bass) and Marek Arnold (keys, sax).  At time of typing the band is currently taking shape and the live line up is not yet fully in place, but may include some surprise international names.  Guy promises music very different to Manning so watch this space for further updates!

Sylvium (Netherlands)
www.sylvium.com

We have been hugely impressed by Sylvium from the Netherlands, whose mixture of Prog, Post rock and ambient styles are really exceptional, so are happy to welcome them in our traditional "best Prog band you've never heard of" slot.  No pressure! Check out their latest, second album "Waiting for the Noise", released last year for a taste of what they do.

Ghost Community (UK)
www.facebook.com/ghostcommunityHQ/

Ghost Community are a new rock / prog band featuring Matt Cohen (The Reasoning) on bass and Simon Rogers (Also Eden) on guitar as well as John Paul Vaughan (Lead Vocals) Moray Macdonald (Keyboards ) and Jake Bradford-Sharp (Drums).  After some tentative first live dates last year, the band are currently recording their first album. More news as we get it!

Tiger Moth Tales - Full Band (UK)
www.tigermothtales.com

Following his rapturously received debut "Cocoon" and the slightly unexpected follow up "Storytellers Part One", multi-instrumentalist and singer Peter Jones has gone on to solo support slots with Magenta, Big Big Train and Abel Ganz.  However, for Summers End he will offer what his fans have been crying out for - a full band performance.  We can't wait.

Firefly Burning (UK)
www.fireflyburning.co.uk

Our "curveball" band this year comes from the quieter end of the spectrum.  Lambsie and Huw both saw London based prog-folk-pop combo Firefly Burning at last year's Eppyfest (thanks Ian) and were completely blown away.  Expect to be mesmerised by great songs, amazing vocals (featuring lead singer Bea Hankey), almost entirely acoustic instrumentation and some exotic percussion. The band's 2015 album "Skeleton Hill" was produced by Tim Friesse Green (Talk Talk).

Summers End XI -  Line Up Now Complete

www.summersend.co.uk

Hi All

Further news of the eleventh Summers End Festival , which will take place on October 2nd to 4th 2015 at The Drill Hall, Lower Church Street, Chepstow.

We are very pleased to announce the final 6 acts that will make up our hugely international festival this year.  Hero, Sponsor and weekend tickets remain available via:
www.summersend.co.uk/ticket_sales2015.htm

News of the day splits and day tickets will be announced in April.

We are immensely pleased that Detroit-based Prog legends Discipline have agreed to make their UK debut at Summers End.  Fronted by the charismatic Matthew Parmenter the band have been making music for 25 years , and were a vital part of the 1990s prog revival.   The bands aptly recent live album "This Ones for England" was recorded at Rosfest in 2012.
www.strungoutrecords.com

Magic Pie that ever-popular band from Norway will make a very welcome return to the UK after a gap of 7 years.  The bands fourth studio album "King For A Day" has just been released on Karisma records, and it's an amazing 10 years since their first, "Motions of Desire".  We are thrilled to welcome them to the festival at long last!
www.magicpie.net

We are delighted to welcome Scottish legends Abel Ganz back to the festival after their great set way back in 2008. Following the release of their hugely-acclaimed self titled album in 2014, which added many new ingredients into their melodic prog mix,  the band are on a real high.  This appearance at Summers End is part of a triumphant year that will also include a slot at the prestigious Rosfest Festival in Pennsylvania - which has been running even longer than Summers End!
www.abelganz.com

Credo will make their third appearance at the festival, following great sets in 2006 and 2011.  It's hard to believe that this version of the band (not withstanding a change of drummer) has been with us for 10 years now, having released three albums "Rhetoric", "Against Reason" and the live "This is what we do"  to add to "Field of Vision" from 1994. Expect as entertaining a performance as ever!
www.credo.gb.com

A less familiar name may well be Luxembourg's rising stars Light Damage, but rest assured the festival prides itself on helping  discover great new acts, and this great band may well be this year's "find", with their brand of modern prog with the occasional heavy moment.
www.lightdamage.lu

Last but by no means least, Simon Godfrey, a great friend to the festival, will play a short solo set opening the Friday Night (unless an acoustic stage is possible).  Now resident in the USA, he will need no introduction, with his band Tinyfish having played the festival twice, in 2007 and 2010 and his most recent project Shineback getting rave reviews.

5  Tinyfish Wibble / Other Bands / Summers End XI- venue and first bands announced on: February 01, 2015, 07:09:49 PM
www.summersend.co.uk

Hi All

We are thrilled to announce first details of the eleventh Summers End Festival , which will take place on October 2nd to 4th 2015.

We can announce that all 3 days of the Festival will take place at The Drill Hall, Lower Church Street, Chepstow.  The venue is well located, a short distance from the Town Centre and close to banks of the River Wye, and in "feel" is similar to our old home of Lydney Town Hall, guaranteeing that unique "Summers End" atmosphere.

Weekend tickets will go on sale on Monday February 2nd, alongside Hero and Sponsor tickets as usual. More band  information will be released shortly, but these are the first 5  booked to play:

Pallas , the Scottish legends are returning to live work after a short hiatus to work on their excellent new album Wearewho weare, so we are delighted to welcome them back to the festival after their headline appearance in 2008.  Was it really that long ago?
www.pallasofficial.com

3rdDegree from the USA will be making their first festival appearance outside North America.  Currently completing their fifth album, they are best known for their superb 2012 album The Long Division given rave reviews on both DPRP.net and Progarchives. 
www.3rdegreeonline.com

Introitus from Sweden mix traditional neo-progressive rock with elements of folk and metal in a formula that has produced 3 superb album to date, including last year's Anima.  The band is a family affair, led by keyboardist Mats Bender, his wife vocalist Anna and also includes two of their children!
www.introitus.se

The Gift from London will be continuing their growing reputation as a live band in 2015 following their 2006 debut Awake and Dreaming and last year's long-awaited follow up Land of Shadows , which saw them tour for the first time as a fully fledged 5 piece.
www.facebook.com/TheGiftMusicUk

The Fierce and the Dead, a quartet led by the ubiquitous Matt Stevens, and this year's "curve ball" band, are building a strong reputation for their powerful instrumental music.  Somewhere between Afrobeat and Robert Fripp said Rock-a-rolla magazine.  Who are we to argue?

We are pleased to announce that the eleventh edition of Summers End will take place on October 2nd to 4th 2015 "somewhere in Chepstow".  We will announce our new venue very soon, but can report that, despite an excellent response from Festival attendees last year, we are unable to use Chepstow School this year for logistical reasons.  Additionally, the Palmer Centre will not be included in our plans.

The line up for the festival is well advanced and will be announced - either in full or part - very soon, alongside ticket and final venue details.

More news will be posted as we have it from www.summersend.co.uk alongside our Facebook and Twitter feeds.

The book "Ten Years of the Summers End Progressive Rock Festival" is well underway, and a firm publication date - probably in the Spring - will be announced soon.

Stay tuned for more information very soon.

8  Tinyfish Wibble / Other Bands / 2015 EARLY BIRD TICKET RELEASED! on: October 13, 2014, 10:42:52 PM
2015 EARLY BIRD TICKET RELEASED!
 2014 saw the tenth edition of the festival and also a move to not one but two new venues in Chepstow, South Wales. The move between venues proved to be extremely costly as well as a logistical nightmare but we also gained a lot from the experience. Most people agreed that the new format with the acoustic acts added to the event and the school venue was generally hailed as a great success.

Whilst it is too early to be sure, we are very keen to return to Chepstow in 2015 and are already in discussions with suitable venues. In the meantime, however, we have decided to launch a new ticket - a 2015 "leap of faith" hero ticket - as a new early bird option.
 
Tickets for 2015 will undoubtedly be more expensive that this year due to the rising cost of staging the event but, for October and November 2014 only, we will be offering a hero ticket for 2015 at £100 - less than the 2014 hero.
 
Summer's End 2015 is already being planned: if you're in a position to help us secure the venue and bands we want for another great festival by buying early - saving on the ticket price - we'd welcome your support.
 
Tickets are available at www.summersend.co.uk
 
With thanks from "da management"

UPF unable to play CRS gig - Jeff Green Project to headline

Hi All

We are writing to announce a change to the advertised billing in Saturday's gig at the Wesley Centre, Maltby.  Unfortunately due to problems with the Australian members of the band getting back into the UK after the European leg of the tour, The United Progressive Fraternity are not now able to  play the gig.  After some consideration, we have decided to go ahead with The Jeff Green Project headlining.  Support will come from Andy Tillison and the Dreaming Tree.  Thanks to both for stepping into the breach at very short notice! We apologise for this late change which is, of course, way beyond our control.  Ticket holders will be emailed individually and refunds will be available, but we do hope you will still support this gig if you can.

Doors will revert to our "usual" time of 7pm and timings should look something like this:

7pm Doors
7.40 – 8.30 The Dreaming Tree
8.45 – 9.25  Andy Tillison
9.40 – 11.  Jeff Green Band 

Here's that UPF statement in full:

"A very important message to those planning on attending the forthcoming UK dates
 We regret to inform you that we will be unable to the play the three remaining shows in the U.K. and Scotland.
 Yesterday, the three Australians citizens in the band were detained for almost 6 hours and questioned about the details of their proposed U.K. performances.
 The guys were very close to being held overnight in Calais, but we were able to get them into the U.K due the quick witted and eloquent persuasion of Guy Manning. Sadly, the outcome is that the three Australians are unable to perform in the U.K. legally and consequently, we cannot complete the tour.
 We are devastated that it has come to this and are deeply sorry to be announcing this statement.
 Please apply for ticket refunds from the agency from which you purchased them. see above
 UPF will be back in the U.K on a larger scale very soon!
 On behalf of every member of the band, we are so sorry to not be meeting you this trip, but these were circumstances beyond our control and we are deeply saddened that we cannot perform for you.
 Please pass this info along for us - thanks."

Summers End 2014 – Change of weekend venue and acoustic stage

www.summersend.co.uk

Chepstow School is new  venue for Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September

We are pleased to announce that we will be switching venues for the Saturday and Sunday of Summer’s End 2014, which will now be held at Chepstow School, Welsh Street, Chepstow. This is due primarily to the needs of our catering team, who will need the use of a larger kitchen than is available at The Palmer Centre.  The Friday night (26th )will still take place at The Palmer Centre as previously announced.

However, the new venue has a large foyer area, meaning we can – for the first time – run a second stage for acoustic acts during the two long breaks, so we will be showcasing more music than ever before. We will shortly be announcing the line-up of the first ever Summer’s End acoustic stage.
With the added benefit of a larger main stage and auditorium, easy access to the stage area and ample parking, the school provides an excellent base for the festival. The venue was not available for the Friday, which would have helped logistically, but splitting the festival over two venues will allow us to gain first- hand experience of running shows in each to help us choose next year!

For those that want to get out and about during the breaks, the school is less than ten minutes walk from Chepstow town centre and, on the Saturday, you may even see one or two Summer’s End performers lurking on street corners and entertaining the citizens of Chepstow as we get involved with Chepstow Town Festival.

Tickets

We have decided not to issue printed tickets at all this year.  On arrival at the Festival please present your paypal receipt and your wristband will be issued.  If you no longer have your paypal receipt or would like to pay by another method, please contact stephen@summersend.co.uk .  Door times are 6.30pm on Friday, 12 noon on Saturday and Sunday.  Stage times will be issued in a couple of weeks.

The Festival Ferry

We will be organising the traditional ‘festival ferry’ shuttle service to and from the venue and Parkend (Whitemead and village) with the potential to pick up along the A48 (Aylburton, Alvington, the National Diving Centre etc). Demand will dictate the cost and size of vehicle required, so please email stephen@summersend.co.uk  ASAP if you are interested, stating how many places you want.  We’ll then email you back with details in a week or so with details and cost.

Hero gift 2013 – that long-awaited Calendar

We are very aware that due to circumstances beyond our control, we missed the deadline to produce the Summer’s End calendars that we promised to our 2013 heroes. These will be produced for 2015, with additional copies being made for purchase.

Hero Gift 2014

Lambsie is finalising details of this right now and we will announce it in a few days.  Heroes will receive it automatically, but everyone else will be offered the opportunity to obtain it as part of an “upgrade” offer.
