At Browse we write about music, fashion and the general arts. Mostly music. And so, this week we’re starting what we hope will become a monthly tradition, supporting the artists we love through more than just our words.
A music event held one Friday a month at Piper on Newland Avenue, we’re offering another platform for the talent of Hull. Instead of just telling you how good they are, we’re now going to be showing you.
Having featured on the cover of issue 004, we were proud to announce that we’d be kickstarting with headliners MOTHER. Alongside the string of Hull festivals, this garage punk band – whose name stands for the lengthy Mothers Of The Highest Earthly Realm – also took to the stage at both sites of Leeds and Reading Festival this year. With powerful vocalist Dave Sinclair, Alex Day on guitar, Chris Frost on guitar and keys, Chris Marsay on bass and James Cooper on drums, they are a force which storms the stage. Together their sound is commanding and confident, with Sinclair’s vocals towering over the instruments without separating himself from his bandmates.
Taking the support slot are rockers Felony, who released their debut album ‘Come Home Soon’ in August. They bring with them a similar energy and confident stage-presence with a slightly different sound; more of the traditional rock than the heavy garage.
For a mere fiver on the door, you can enjoy music from both bands and finish the night off with tunes from the decks of DJ Jordan Coombs, as well as meeting some of the faces behind the words and images in the magazine.
