Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate / IT / The Wood Demons

An evening of exciting new progressive rock at the legendary Fiddler's Elbow. Three critically acclaimed British prog bands present an artist-led co-headlined event.

All three bands are influenced by Pink Floyd.

Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate
"Original songs, well delivered, style, stage charm, a great voice and great bass playing. Bloody marvellous. The highlight of the weekend". e-festivals review of HRH Prog.

"Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate is an ideal example of what prog is; music that does not follow a traditional pattern or path but rather evolves. Hats Off Gentlemen manages to evolve both with every new album and every time you listen to the same album...there is so much there you can't take it all in on the first go-round." The Closet Concert Arena

Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate are recommended by Steve Hackett (Genesis) and were joint winners (along with Roger Waters and Alice Cooper) of the Beastie's Rock Show Album Of The Year Award 2017.


Beginning life as a psychedelic, multi-media group, IT is a band with a colossal sound that shakes the bones, with a barrage of images that feeds the mind. IT’s sound fuses the classic melodies of prog rock’s past with a passion and intensity usually only found in punk or metal bands. Politics, religion, war and sexuality all come under the band’s lens for critical examination. Lyrics are intelligent, challenging and occasionally darkly humorous. 

Their recent album 'We’re All In This Together' explores themes of austerity, inequality and an uncertain future for younger generations. Conceptually-based, it comprises 10 brand new tracks, including the debut single, Revolution, which was released back in October 2016, and supported with a strong video https://youtu.be/gk82tpzginU depicting rogue youth against an establishment protected by police. 

Prog Mill listeners’ album of the year award 2017
“Clever, challenging, and very, very good indeed” Maximum Volume Rock

The Wood Demons

The Wood Demons draw their inspiration from the eclectic spirit of the first wave of progressive bands. Their atmospheric brand of epic prog-psychedelia combines powerful tunes interwoven with many influences – molten psychedelic guitar rock, classical violin, acid-folk, space-rock, modal jazz, film music. 

In a Wood Demons song, you’re never far from a stirring melody, a poignant (or deranged) lyric or an instrumental passage that spirits you off into the stratosphere.

“The arrangement and the performance of the musicians are excellent. The album debuts with "The Other Side", which with its psychedelic atmosphere and McCartney-esque vocal is very close to the Beatles. "Caught In The Drift Of An Idle Day" recalls The Byrds. "Indian Summer" with a Mellotron background and an engaging but interesting rhythm that reminds me of the Beatles’ psychedelic period. My two favorite pieces are "All Alone In Istanbul" for its Floydian side (Animals period) and its superb progressive guitar solo, and "Poor Traumatised You", a very nice song with beautiful electric violin and Mellotron. …

Join us at The Fiddlers Elbow on Tuesday 25th September as we discuss mental health through Spoken Word & Hip Hop. Headlined by Birdspeed and Benny Diction with a very special appearance from Natalie Stewart, better known as....The Floacist :-)

The Floacist (Special Appearance)

The creative writer, actress and performance poet, Natalie Stewart, is most popularly known as ‘The Floacist’, the originator of the Floetic ethos of ‘Poetic Delivery with Musical Intent and founding member of the legendary multiple Grammy nominated Neo Soul duo, Floetry.

With 3 critically acclaimed Floetry albums, 3 solo projects and another solo album on the way, Floacist returned to her poetry roots to start FLO; a monthly spoken word vortex held every first and 3rd Thursday of the month at Hideaway in Streatham. Flo provides a platform where spoken word artists can step into the Vortex and share their Flo




Birdspeed is a storyteller, spoken word artist, writer, dancer/ choreographer, rap artist and activist. Born in London, raised in Barbados, Birdspeed is dedicated to uplifting, empowering and inspiring people through cultural integrity, especially marginalised and disadvantaged communities. Though she was only introduced to the spoken word scene late 2016 she emerged a year later as a force to be reckoned with. Her unique style of storytelling, featuring tales from her past and social commentary, has been captivating and impressing audiences across England and New York so much so she has been consistently dubbed “The Firebird.” Her most notable spoken word appearances this year include performing at the Bristol Old Vic and WOMAD festival.





Benny Diction

Both solo and with crew, Benny has torn down stages at festivals and club nights across the UK and beyond, including Dragonfly Festival (Sweden), Urban Moves (Norway), Passauer Kunstnacht Festival (Germany) and Howler (Australia). Along the way, he has opened up for the likes of Teebs (Brainfeeder), Homeboy Sandman (Stones Throw), Statik Selektah, Souls of Mischief and Pharoahe Monch, as well as making it to the 2013 End Of The Weak UK finals. After moving to the capital in 2009, he also hosted London hip-hop nights Fat Gold Chain and Holdin' Court.



Promoted Organisation - Hearts & Minds

All donations on the night will go to Hearts & Minds to help with the work they do.

Please read more about this amazing organisation below!

Hearts & Minds is a Peer Support charity for young people, aged 14-25 experiencing mental health difficulties.

Set up by director, Beth, as result of her own experiences of the lack of mental health support available to young people, Hearts & Minds is entirely Peer-Led, meaning all the staff and volunteers are young adults with their own lived experience of mental health problems.

Hearts & Minds provides regular Peer Support groups and 1 to 1 mentoring sessions for young people, particularly offering safe spaces for those who feel isolated or unable to access traditional mental health services because of circumstances such as caring responsibilities, gang involvement, agoraphobia or discrimination. The support they provide also purposefully crosses over the 18 age gap as young people who are between the ages of 17 and 23 often find themselves, unable to access CAMHS or Adult Mental Health Services.

At it’s core Hearts & Minds is a diverse community of over 40 young people, based in South West London. It’s 4 core values are Peer Support, Collaboration, Creativity & Progress.

ROCK - Probably Oslo +  MODERN MOTIVE + Primal Rust + Guests

ROCK - Probably Oslo + MODERN MOTIVE + Primal Rust + Guests

7.30pm start for a great night of live music!

Primal Rust is a hard rock band that bud from the musical ideas of guitar player Rusty and the melodies of Chris, alternative rock singer of the roman scene.
They meet casually in the rehearsal studio of a friend who was in search of musicians for his original alternative rock project.
Even if they came from different genres, Rusty realize that the Chris’s vocal potentialities could fit for his project: hearing the songs, Chris is captivated by the energy of the guitars and the hard rock sound, that impress him.
The guys starts working on songs structures and melodies, using Rusty’s lyrics.
After few months, they complete the recording of the demo “Recording Demo”, that includes five original songs, two of them written and composed by both (“Guess where I am” and “Reason to stay”).
In that period, besides composing new songs, they meet and try different musicians to complete the line-up, but no one has the essential trait that they are looking for: total commitment to music.
Anyway, they decide to propose their demo to different labels, independents and major.

In 2017 Chris leaves the project.
Following that Primal Rust had a new line up.
Troy, Pete and Jan joined the band.

The project is founded on the need for describe our experiences and the reality that we live, through a genre in wherein we believe as a means to express what we are. We think that this musical style must born again keeping its powerful and strong feature.

We are an Alternative Pop-Punk band, formed in the winter of 2018 in London, England. Coming together to create a sound that blends together Punk, Power Pop andAlternative Rock, we've been hard at work to create our music and are looking to bring thunder to the streets of London – whether with the melancholy of Macy, the anti-establishment message in Tomorrow’s Revolution or the ‘leave it all behind’ punk ethos in Brand New Day.

Formed by members from three countries, we hope that our music will reach people across the world. Our music is for everyone irrespective of caste, colour or creed.

We’re all Jack and Sally.

Steve Rodgers, singer songwriter, has just completed recording his much anticipated first album, due for release this year and produced by Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Paolo Nutini) mixed by Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse). His songs reflect his passion for life’s depth, mystery and wonder, recorded with his band of like-minded musicians. Critics compare his music to a mix of Jack Johnson, Paolo Nutini and Cat Stevens.

At 14 he began to write his own songs on guitar and piano. He started a band with his friends at 17, ‘Lost Sons of Davros’. From the ‘Lost Sons’ came ‘Boa’ they created two great albums – their first single ‘Duvet’ was the title track to the Japanese multi award- winning animation series Manga ‘Lain – Serial Xperiments’. They toured the States, the UK and after much enjoyment, Steve decided to follow his own path.

He has ‘guested’ at Wembley for Bad Company, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry and the Robert Randolph Band. Tours have included support slots for Bad Company in the UK and Japan and his own headline dates in the UK and Canada. Steve has also supported The Deborah Bonham Band and Midge Ure on their respective tours in the UK and Europe. In 2014 he supported Bad Company again with Lynyrd Skynyrd for their coast to coast US tour and in September 2015 he joined Stackridge for a three month tour of the UK. To coincide with his album release this year he will be touring again with Bad Company and Joe Walsh in the US and UK over four months.

INDIE/POP/ROCK - Eliot Ash + Yuzoo + REECE + Lily-Ann Reeve

INDIE/POP/ROCK - Eliot Ash + Yuzoo + REECE + Lily-Ann Reeve

What a line up to end the week! Only £5 OTD too!!

London based singer-songwriter Eliot Ash creates a unique blend of acoustic rock chords coupled with fast flowing vocals. His honest lyrics stick a middle finger up to todays society. With gigs across his hometown in venues such as Nambucca, The Monarch and The Half Moon, this rising star is already gathering quite a following.

Eliot released his debut single 'We Always Sail at Night' through MadMan Records in late 2017. It received wide coverage being played on Radio Stations such as RKC, FreshNet and 365. His follow up single ’Weak’ showed a darker side to his music and fans eagerly anticipated the release of his double EP ‘One Step Away From Madness.

Eliot dropped the first part of his debut EP ‘One Step Away’ on the 23rd February 2018 and begun working with HotVox, Blank TV and BBC Introducing. 'It’s a big shame that we would never be allowed to play “It’s The Weekend” on BBC Radio in its present form, but fair play to Eliot for not playing the corporate game. Anyway the out and out swearing is a big part of what makes the song so liberating. Sleaford Mods built up their credibility and cult following for years by genuinely not giving a fuck about whether anyone played them on the radio.' - Tom Robinson BBC Introducing.

Part 2 ‘From Madness’ was released on 6th April 2018. With commercial tunes like ‘The Man Who Lived Life Through a Lens’ and the punk rock infused ‘Nobody Enjoys Looking at Your Travelling Photos’ getting radio play on BBC Introducing Tracks of The Week Playlist, Eliot Ash is certainly proving he’s more than ‘Just Another Kid Who Knows 4 Chords, Middle Class Cheek Whose Brain Got Bored’.

YUZOO - A tribute to Yazoo & Alison Moyet

Electro synth duo featuring the vocals of Lisa Pressnell formerly singer on Cunard ships and the technical wizardry of Mr X formerly of Numan Principle.

REECE are a 3-piece Melodic Rock Band from South Wales, in the UK, blending together elements of Rock, Pop and Prog, harmony-rich vocals and big anthem-style choruses that scream melody from start to finish. With a driving rhythm section, melodic guitars & ear-catching vocal section, REECE, for the time being are here to stay !1

Formed in March 2016, the road to the present day has come with great ‘ups’ and fortunately, very few ‘downs’. Our debut EP titled ‘Noisebox’ was released in November 2017 and was accompanied by the promo video of ‘Fear’. Within just a few weeks of its release, the video had over 10k plays and the EP sold out, a major achievement for a ‘live’ band that has literally come from nowhere with only around 20 gigs to the name.

The year 2017 was all about writing new material with the aim of an album release later in the year. Working with good friends Andy & Phil at The Boneyard Studio, REECE put together the debut album ‘Ignited’ . REECE toured endlessly in what time was available together before hand, and post release, to ‘sell the album’.

Nov 2017 saw the release of ‘Ignited’ through a Pledge campaign where REECE achieved over 120% of the PLEDGE target with almost every item of merchandise was sold out, or as near as.

REECE released the album titled track ‘Ignited’ as our first release a month later and ‘Hold On’ in January 2018.

In between the 2 singles, the band formed a union with TMR Band Management & Peter Keevil who oversaw the release of ‘Hold On’. Finding their way onto Total Rock.com radio has been one of the many highlights on an incredibly short but intensive journey to date.

Lily-Ann is the Singer/Songwriter from Norfolk creating music to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step!

Billy Boguard

Billy is a Folk singer-songwriter, who writes, plays and sings from the heart adding to it a blend of imagination and psyche that culminate to betray his own feelings to find the simple truth of storytelling. His enchanting sound is inspired by artists such as Neil Young, Bon Iver and Damien Rice. Billy first picked up a guitar at the age of fifteen, and was singing even before that. He discovered his first urge to write songs (not coincidentally) when he met, and needed to impress his first girlfriend. From there, his creativity gathered momentum finding its place in heavy metal (for four years) and pop-punk (for two). Both of which were infiltrated by a growing interest in bands like, Pink Floyd and Radiohead. The metal band reached its natural end in 2013 which became the catalyst for Billy’s solo ambition, taking him to London to pursue his dream of becoming a working musician. Where artists: Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Nick Drake well and truly opened his eyes to the beguiling fables of Folk music. Inspiring him to hit the open mic circuit solo, armed with a harmonica and guitar. Leading to more and more booked gigs and, in 2014, the recording of hid first EP ‘Tallulah’ produced by Nacho Silvestre. At one such gig, in late 2015, Billy had a chance meeting with producer and sound engineer Ed Hartwell (Ed Sheeran, The Prodigy), and together they began work on his second EP. One year of hard graft and a successful kickstarter campaign later, ‘Across the Narrow Sea’ will be released in February 2017. Launching on the 3rd March at The Slaughtered Lamb.

Yes it’s a Monday - BUT this is a night not to be missed! Take a sickie tomorrow!!

ONLY £5 OTD 7.30pm


A four-headed Irish-Australian rock Hydra from Sydney's Inner West, Flickertail, (formerly The Bitter Sweethearts), play guitar-fuelled rock and roll exactly the way it's supposed to be played. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Thin Lizzy, the Dubliners, Airbourne and The Darkness, the band honed their sound in the garages and booze dens of Sydney before hitting the road in 2015 to showcase their unique sound at every pub, club and back yard along Australia's eastern coast.

Since their inception, the band have played relentlessly and are reaping the rewards. 2014's single "The End" received airplay on Triple M and regional radio throughout New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, while new single "Guinness is Thicker than Blood" has been played everywhere from Bendigo to Brisbane. The tail end of 2015 saw the band landing coveted opening slots with Aussie rock heroes Buffalo and Sarah McLeod on top of endless sweaty shows with local legends Black Aces, The Lockhearts, The Cherry Dolls and Foreign Kings.

The band brought their infamous zero-bullshit live show on the road once more in 2016, including support slots with The Casanovas and US juggernaut Supersuckers.

In 2017, armed with only their wits, guitars and their stunning good looks, Flickertail plan on conquering every state across this vast, thirsty continent.

Only £5 OTD

Yellow Radio's 'Fever' is fun, dance-oriented indie rock with a distinct punk flair. "The name Yellow Radio came to the surface," the band says, "when Jon Du was about 15 years of age." While staying with his extended family, he had to "find solace in a tiny room he was given to sleep in. In that room, however, was a tiny yellow radio where he discovered The Rolling Stones and The Beatles." These bands would, "change the course of his life," by inspiring "his love and insatiable passion for music." Clearly, these guys take a lot from the post-punk revival.
