Ship of Fools Club returns after a short summer break with the release party for Nick Marsh’s long awaited debut solo album “A Universe Between Us’ !
Special guest Katharine Blake (Mediaeval Babes, Miranda Sex Garden)
Support by Katy Carr
Opening act: Lark Blames
Like a Frank Sinatra from Hell, Nick Marsh, lead singer with 1980’s alternative rock luminaries ‘Flesh For Lulu’ has re-emerged with this haunting and timeless solo album. A Universe Between Us (Bellissima Records) is a radical departure from his stateside chart successes and offers an altogether more intimate, poignant and classic approach to songwriting.
Katy Carr is a London based performer and songwriter who sings, plays a vintage, wurlitzer electronic piano, ukulele and banjolele with her group ‘The Aviators.’ She has self released three albums on her label Deluce Recordings. ‘Screwing Lies,’ 2001 and ‘Passion Play’ 2003 and ‘Coquette’ 2009 which has received no less than 4/5 star reviews in the mainstream and music press during with a 5/5 star review from Music Critic, ‘Quite simply a masterpiece’.
Katy’s music is inspired by themes, stories and characters from 1940s Britain, France and Poland. Boasting a wide variety of performances from The Royal Opera House to Glastonbury music festival together with regular appearances on BBC radio, this eccentric and eclectic performer delivers her self -penned folk songs, with verve and humour.
Opening act will be Lark Blames, the project of Lloyd James (Naevus, Retarder), and Marc Blackie (Sleeping Pictures, These Papercuts). They will be presenting material from their recent album ‘The Reins of Life’ (Ur Muzik).
