Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls) No Bones In Manchester
July 21 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm£12.50
Sylvain Sylvain- Full rocknroll solo set plus, storytelling, projections and Q and A! “Don’t live life worrying about it, just T. Rex the shit out of it.” – The New York Dolls were called many things; glam, proto-punk, hard rock, but are probably best understood as a “dirty rock & roll” band. Combining an aggressively androgynous style with street smart New York attitude and campy humour, the New York Dolls ushered in the era of CBGBs, heroin chic, loud guitars and referential lyrics which gave rise to Patti Smith, The Ramones, Television and many more. Fans of the band range from Guns N’ Roses to Morrissey, who organised the reformation of the band when he curated Meltdown festival in 2004. Sylvain Sylvain was there from the start, and There’s No Bones in Ice Cream is his story. Taking in his early life in New York, the rise, fall and rise again of the New York Dolls, and all his misadventures between, There’s No Bones in Ice Cream is his story. Taking in his early life in New York, the rise, fall and rise again of the New York Dolls, and all his misadventures between, There’s No Bones in Ice Cream is the true story of one of rock’s greatest, told in his own authentic voice. More prosaic observations followed, such as the infamous whispering Bob a job Harris sneering ‘Mock rock’, but a hundred nascent punks broke their E.L.P LPs over their knees and eagerly awaited punk rock. With wonderful projections of photographs from Syl’s personal archive, a Q and A by writer by Dublin Castle Rock And Roll Book Club dynamo Julie Hamill (Moz Army, 15 Minutes With You, Frank, Sabotage Times) and a whole set of Syl’s sensational sound today alongside the stories. Not to be missed for all Jet Boys and Jet Girls. With thanks to Black Dog Muzik.
Adventures Of Salvador– fabulous local band who will kick this night off brilliantly, wry and raucous punk /garage/surf combo with sass, twang and tood.. the rocknroll theremin angle is nice!
ILL-Horror glam exponents of riot grrl twenty eighteen style and outta Manchester too.. with their debut album set to stun and a bunch of remarkable self made vids under their belts what could be a better way to open tonight’s show than with these gals and their exciting acid punk, possibly the spiritual heirs to The Slits.
