LIVE : Nick Ellis
Nick Ellis is a Liverpool based singer-songwriter and guitarist performing a style of streetscape narrative-noir blended with a classic British acoustic approach.
Ellis is dedicated to the concept of “Song” and “Melody”. Some people call it folk, some just call it good old fashioned song craft. Using a blend of rhythmic attack and finger-quick lucidity, his sound has been described as “a conversation between Elvis Costello and John Martyn.”
The stunning ‘Daylight Ghosts’ album is available on pre-order here from Mellowtone Records
DJS: Sounds of Eighty Six
Eighty Six came into existence in 2007 when like minded friends Jeffo, Jif and TC were asked to take over a show on Unity Radio in Manchester, soon after this they started a monthly night in Chorlton. Their nights have regularly featured guests that have included Moonboots, Jason Boardman, James Holroyd, Balearic Mike and Paul ‘Mudd’ Murphy. In 2012 their numbers were swelled when Bugged Out legend Rob Bright joined their ranks.
They have played guest slots and residencies at many different nights and venues including Aficionado, Common, Electriks, Seek Magic, The Heavenly Social, the Independent Manchester Beer Convention, Outlaws Yacht Club, The Beagle and many more.
Expect to hear a wide variety of music reflecting their own individual takes on the balearic sound from across many genre boundaries.
Currently they don’t play too often together so it’s a rare treat and a special occasion to have them all together at The Magic Rock Tap. They also present the ‘Sounds of Eighty Six’ podcast from their Balearic Basement studio; sharing their wide love of music via their blog www.soundsofeightysix.com
