The Rin Tins & Junior Bill

— The Golden Lion
High energy swing
time:21:00
price: See event details

Information:

Roll up, roll up! Tis the Rin Tins! What more do I need to say. Your favourite party swingers return for a big ol start of summer shindig. And Lion alumni Rob aka Junior Bill is jumping on the bill to lend his substantial support.
Keep them dancing.
That’s the ethos that The Rin Tins have kept since their inception in early 2011 and since then the sextet have strutted from one stage to another playing high octane gypsy swing to the party hard masses.
These festival veterans have appeared on stages at Glastonbury, Shambala, Boomtown as well as Sömmersound Festival in Hamburg and headlining Fokus Festival in Görlitz, Germany.
With music that combines 5 part harmonies with swing jazz rhythms and pounding oompa beats, for the past 7 years The Rin Tins have been filling dance floors and festival tents across Europe.


Junior Bill have been here all along. Surveying their world from atop a suburban overpass, or a forlorn back alley, they are the eyes and ears of urban Britain. Their witty provincial tales eulogise forgotten peoples, spin empathic character portraits and tell the everyday stories of contemporary city life.

The tunes themselves are catchy as hell. Pretty playground limericks, Latin melodies and chanted refrains rattle round the skull, distracting you from the often-tragic subtexts of division, decline and gentrification familiar to any British city-dweller. The music is hugely danceable, too. Dubby basslines and concrete grooves underpin a ska-tinged global-local collage of sound. It’s a blend that makes them the natural torch-bearers of a vein of Jamaican-influenced British song writing running from Jerry Dammers to Jamie T.
