From Brooklyn, New York, the great Chris Mills appearing live.
A unique opportunity to see the renowned American songsmith
perform solo, playing selections from his current retrospective 'Heavy Years 2000 - 2010'
'Over the last few years (Mills) has quietly assembled an immensely impressive catalogue. His songs are literate, funny and endearingly hangdog...' [The Independent, UK]
“His hidden elegance lies in the twist of lovesick metaphor, the wistful chord, the revisionist take on the slamming door” – [NME]
‘Nightmare at 20,000 Feet’ is a gem of pop grandeur that showcases Mills’ emotional vocal delivery.” – [Chicago Sun Times]

Plus Special Guest :
Liam Dullaghan, Northampton's wayward son - fellow purveyor of fine tunes and associate of Mr Mills
Making History : ” an amalgam of the joys of The Replacements, Teenage Fanclub, Pernice Brothers and Big Star. Think sweet Americana fused with power pop and you’re halfway there. Think one of the best records of its type to pass this way in an age” [The Irish Times]
Steve Dowling and The Obliviates, roots-noir collective out of Bladnoch
'...this is a one-take album and this has given the set a rawness and vibrancy...Much of that rawness is down to Dowling's singing, displaying the timbre of the late Ronnie Drew and the gravitas and phrasing of Dave Cousins, admirable traits indeed when welded to Dowling's rootsy, earthy material. Overall, Urchin impresses with its passion and relatively unadorned honesty... '[Rock N Reel Magazine]
