19/10 // The Wombats smashed their way into the Joiners record books with this one! It took less than an hour for all tickets to sell out, making it the fastest selling show ever! The trio made their name by dominating indie discos and airwaves across the country with hits such as ‘Moving To New York’ & ‘Lets Dance To Joy Division’. The hugely anticipated performance is part of their October tour in support of the new single ‘Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)’, released on September 27th on 14th Floor Records. Those fast enough to get tickets will cherish the chance to hear the bands new songs so early, amongst all the old favourites.

Tellison play pop music for those that don’t like pop music. Their music has a soothing and graceful charm that makes them a band enjoyable for any taste. They’ve spent the last few months off the radar recording their second studio album, emerging momentarily for ‘Off The Cuff’ and ‘Truck Festival’. On October 4th they headline The Joiners on a day off from their tour with Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, proving that not only is this a band that enjoys playing live, but that this is a band on their way to great things.

Hailing from Umea, Sweden, AC4 formed in 2008 after Refused singer Dennis Lyxzén and David Sandström reunited, playing at a squat which was then filmed and received over 14,000 hits in its first week on YouTube! It’s been nearly 13 years since the pair last hit the UK together, and with this Swedish quartet, they’ll be putting on a hardcore punk show filled with old school, stripped down tunes from their self-titled album. Soon to be releasing a new EP this band is sure to cause the same effect as Refused once did.

The Birthday Massacre.

Love Amongst Ruin.

Canadian natives The Birthday Massacre Combine their interests in various musical and artistic styles, and have successfully accumulated an impressive international fan base and defied categorisation with their unique alternative rock sound and impressive female vocals. They have become renowned for their high-energy live performances, drawing large, mixed crowds through their appeal to fans around the world. Equally comfortable playing intimate venues as they are on a festival stage, the band’s highly-praised performances are set to continue with the release of their fourth full length album “Pins And Needles”.

Love Amongst Ruin is the brainchild of Steve Hewitt, drummer and songwriter in the multimillion selling Placebo. As the front man with strong dark vocals he takes the lead for the first time in what has already been described as “one of the most explosive live bands to come in 2010”. This multi-faceted rock band has been influenced by such greats from Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters and Metallica to New Order and Depeche Mode. Their self titled debut album is released on 6th September 2010, preceded by the single ‘So Sad (Fade)’ and a European tour followed by a string of UK dates with first stop....The Joiners!

Alan Pownall. An art school drop-out who taught himself a handful of guitar chords, Alan Pownall had played just three acoustic gigs when he was spotted at The Troubadour in London by soul pop star Adele, who invited him to support her on tour. These last few months have already seen him co-headline a tour with American singer-songwriter Lissie as well as the release of his light and summery debut album ‘True Love Stories’. The Sunday Times has described him as ‘Like Ray Davies singing calypso; harks back to early solo McCartney.’ While Rough Trade have called his debut as ‘Perhaps the folk pop album of the year’.


Canterbury // 20/10

Canterbury return to Joiners as part of their first ever major UK tour. Back in February they impressed as main support for Twin Atlantic and since then they they’ve added support slots with Billy Talent and You Me At Six to their repertoire of experience and also recorded a brand new mini-album set for release around the tour. If you haven’t heard their impressive pop rock style you can even download their first album ‘Thank You’ for free from their Myspace page. Not Advised, and The Afterparty complete the line-up making this a show bursting with some of the best up and coming talent.

21/10 Words By: Paul Ward Photography By: Ben Walker

Pulled Apart by Horses @ The Joiners // 06/09 Coming off the back of a crazy summer, where they owned any stage whatever festival they played (highlights include Hevy Festival, Reading & Leeds and Glastonbury), Pulled Apart By Horses have managed to instil a strong buzz on their return to Southampton. Just two days before they had played to 50,000 people at Manchester’s Old Trafford cricket ground! (Opening the show for Muse, who had personally requested them). It was a definite contrast as they kicked off their tour on the vastly more intimate Joiners stage. The Leeds four piece had the crowd wrapped around their little finger straight from the off. There was none of the normal stagnant caution as the bands first song kicked in, and within the first ten minutes of the set PABH whipped the front of the venue into a swirling mass of sweaty bodies. Perfect in execution and never punishing the crowd with a dull moment between their

screeching hardcore jams and crowd pleasers aplenty. From the ecstatic sing-a-long of ‘Yeah Buddy’ to the underground classic (and new single) ‘High Five, Swan Dive, Nose Dive’ and riff monster ‘The Crapsons’, the band who have been heralded by many as ‘the best live band in Britain’ made it impossible to stand still. We’d all been subject to what the band referred to as ‘aural rape-age’, but for everyone there it was anything but. Loved by readers of NME and Kerrang! alike, it’s refreshing to see a band having fun and doing what they want to with their music, rather than trying to fit into any scene or genre defining sound. Having been signed earlier this year and quickly gaining more fanswith every gig they play; Pulled Apart By Horses are going from strength to strength, whilst partying harder than Andrew WK could ever dream of.
