Witty folk-pop duo from Sheffield / Pop-poet with a fine baritone
Generous donations for the musicians please!
Ichabod Wolf is a singer-songwriter from the midlands. He performs original songs about myth, mortality and unemployment in a distinctive baritone voice. His evocative lyricism draws influence from some of the most significant songwriters of the past sixty years; Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell and Tom Waits.
Ichabod, along with the poet Matt McAteer, co-founded The Independent Electric Group, who have spent the past three years hosting some of the nation’s finest poets at Chesterfield Labour Club.
His debut album, ‘Carry On, Crow’ was released last year, via The Adult Teeth Recording Company.
“[Painted Horses] is an amazing thing. It quite stopped me in my tracks.” - Steve Lamacq, BBC 6Music
“Sublime, literate guitar pop, in the mould of Lloyd Cole and Edwyn Collins.” - Tony Walsh, Poet
Soup Review are songwriting duo Chris Delamere and Mario D’Agostino, two friends who came together over their mutual love of recording songs in their bedrooms to write DIY pop songs which walk a fine line between silliness and sincerity, high concept and novelty, folk and anti-folk.
Their debut album ‘From the Bed to the Settee (And Back Again)’ is a scrapbook collection of songs about everyday joys and frustrations, about friendships and recipes, disastrous parties and quiet nights in, as well as flights of fancy through boringly familiar landscapes. They tell stories through goofy wordplay, sharp observations and loving pastiche.
Soup Review are casting a critical eye on the great gumbo of life. Much like ‘Half Man Half Biscuit’ before them, Soup Review is observing the road well-travelled and leaving lengthy Trip Advisor reviews about the potholes they find. Imagine Soup Review as the “Morriseys of Morrisons” (minus the shitty stuff), or as Lennon and McCartney farting around in the waiting room before their CBT session. They’re like Stars in their Eyes on SSRIs.
