Sonic Boom Six - For The Kids Of The Multiculture (by paulatkinsonuk)

What a great way to start the week?

Music Tourist Board’s uniqulture inspired a Ones To Watch 2012 project between creative and performing talents.

Started on 11.11.11 because the ones added up to 6! And now Sonic Boom Six. 

Its a sign. Manc Street Preachers!

23 Jan 2014 : Uniqulture Roadshow starts on Tin Pan Alley. Photographer, David Montgomery (Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones etc) is at the show - and GETS the new music movement. Music Venue Trust begins this month, too. 

23 Jan 2015 : Uniqulture’s Dizzy Spell and Bruno Wizard are back on Tin Pan Alley now part of the live venue circuit that the Venues Trust is so important to (and captured the above clip). David Montgomery is taking pix of Uniqulture tour band, Bad Wolf, at Playhard. Our musical ®evolution is ready to raise its game. Again.

2004 : “A disparate group with a near psychotic level of civic pride have set up the Music Tourist Board, promoting the self styled borough of Rocklands with the ultimate fanatical aim of getting the area declared an independent rock n roll republic.” (NME)

2014 : Talents and passions made new futures through many adventures over a decade. Rocklands staged the artbeat of uniqulture on a whimsical, situationist, musical magical mystery tour. So far, so not too bad…

2015 will be made of what we have learned, achieved and connected to, so far…

Uniqulture road show 2014 is a game of two halves. The first half kicked off with an early doors packed house at The Alleycat on Tin Pan Alley and ended with an outdoors stage at People’s Day (30,000 people partying for peace and community) and a HQ for Rocklands at the new Art Music community hub, Number3London.

One thing though, these are QUALITY new artists developing into star potential close up where we can see the white of their ideas. They may not be TV advertised or day time play listed on national radio, but they deserve to be. With thanks, and more to them all, some of the next wave that are making things happen for UK composition, performance, marketability and potential futures.

16 Hole Boots, Aeromancy, Bad For Lazarus, Bad Wolf, Cat Bear Tree, CuT, Dana Jade, deux furieuses, Eighteen Nightmares At The Lux, elephants and castles, Kosmic Troubadour, Mourning Birds, Rhiannon The Nightmare, stella +, The Otherside.

What happens next? No idea. The second half kicks off at The Alleycat in Central London, again on 18th September - another yellow brick road to follow.

Jean Genie’s Massive Hugs extend to all that come to Panda~Power! Another of the Starbreaker Alliance events for top scouting. Positivity like ripples from a pond and buzzing new music to investigate in a friendly vibe of creative and performing music fans.

Southampton/Sydenham pop outfit, Itchy Teeth on stage (they also threw the legendary Panda~Power! house party for Jean Genie’s birthday).

The scene of the packed venue was a music industry scrum to see Cave Painting. Have had quite a few of those.

Gabi Garbutt (who has been compared to a young, female, Neil Young) fronts The Breadstealers who have played here. People come for chat n cake when they’re not playing that night.

Dave GST Cardinals and Lekiddo - Lord Of The Lobsters hugging on the stairs as Paul The Sound goes up the stairs and Jean Genie comes out of the venue. And a glimpse of Ginger from Gin In Teacups.

Stood on a chair to get a glimpse over the heads of Cave Painting.

Aww, we’re always sad to see everybody go. That’s Andrei and music/style journalist Chenaii Madhoo last to leave!
