The Dog Head Music Society Presents… JACK AND THE’
For this show we have Edinburgh based band Jack and The` who have been signed to Folks Wit Records since 2012 and described as possessing Beatle-esque keyboards, McCartney-esque vocals and a feel good sensibility. Check them out, these guys are class….
Support comes from Welsh troubadours Heal The Last Stand. A brilliant band with a strong message and sibling harmonies who have wowed crowds at Glastonbury and been playlisted by BBC radio Wales for their 2013 single The Gathering.

JULES AND THE BLUE GARNETS (single Launch)
Jules and the Blue Garnets have been described as ‘fresh, clear…no saccharine. A bit like apple cider vinegar…tingly’. The 21st of March 2014 sees the release of their long awaited first single, ‘The Beginning’. With their ever increasing fan base and determination to succeed, Jules and the Blue Garnets is certainly a band to watch in 2014.
Al Shields is an Edinburgh-based songwriter, with influences rooted in old-time country, folk and blues music. He has recently had the privelege of supporting a number of international touring acts, including legendary Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy, Joe Pug, Neal Casal, Red Sky July, and LA country rockers Dead Rock West.
UNITED FRUIT, Black International, Birdhead
BLACK INTERNATIONAL are from Edinburgh, there are two of them, and they produce what has been described by Radar as ‘industrialised post-punk’, but they prefer to say NEW WAVE PUNK ROCK NOISE POP with a sarcastic smirk.
BIRDHEAD, again a duo, are a drums/synth/guitar experiment in krautrock with pulsating riffs, motorik beats and jagged digital doodles. Often unpredictable, always hypnotic.
COASTS, The Monty Hall Problem
RETURN TO THE SUN, Rebel Westerns, Sea Of Crowns, Balor Mile

PEANUT BUTTER WOLF (stone’s throw)

VERSE CHORUS VERSE (Tony Wright ex-ASIWYFA)
VerseChorusVerse is the current moniker for Tony Wright. Tony Wright used to be in a band that he formed called And So I Watch You From Afar. He isn’t anymore.
This new project finds Tony darting off brilliantly in the opposite direction to his former band, armed with a head full of melody & a soul full of fire, teasing hope out from the darker recesses of his ever changing & always fascinating musical landscape.
VerseChorusVerse is a force of change – terra firma unexplored. Tony likes moving forward, because he knows the world is moving with him. Finding a firm alliance with an acoustic guitar, a strong acquaintance with a harmonica and even a fling with some mariachi brass, he writes words and music that come right from his heart, holding a mirror up to the world at large and seeking positivity.
