Chapter 12: End Of Daze Eugene Ankomah photographed at Pulse 1 launch by Stefon Grant


It’s been 4REAL! This is an ongoing Art 4 Hearts story that was first uploaded in Spring 2014. Where were we? Ah yes… first Saturday of September was a double bubble. Loud Women Fest in North London then Party In The Park Festival over the river in good old Costa del Thames… I may well have misplaced the rest of the weekend. Monday 5th September 2016, I (Caffy) went to see last chapter’s cover stars, Asylums. (yes, again) My amateur hobby images are not of Tarquin Clark Photography calibre (we got brilliant feedback for his image, below, from This Feeling Stage at Leeds Festival), so I took a few candid snap shots as the band were setting up to play a free gig at The Old Blue Last. It was an intimate show with the bonus of bumping into long time no see friendswho are fellow fans. A special night that sets the tone for an unbelievable and truly AWE-some, and then some, Autumn in our parallel dimension of TheZineUK - meanwhile. In what passes for real life, this season is often called FALL on Planet America…


Asylums released their debut album ‘Killer Brain Waves’ this summer, on their own Cool Thing Records imprint. If you’ve not investigated them yet, they come highly recommend to fans of noisy pop guitar bands who are seeking a truly rocking fun addiction - with something to say. Songs that can mean something to you personallly. I grinned/sang along all through this set! A few days after this show, they were making many more people do the same at Bestival on the Isle Of Wight. At time of writing, the band’s year ending, arse kicking Alternative Occupations EP is on the way and sharing the joy with musical

Tuesday 13th September 2016, Tin Pan Alley, Soho, Central London #Britz16 movers n shakers are out in force on Denmark Street…

Sisteray launch; ‘Who R Ya?’?


Tuesday September 13th 2016 Special guests performing at the Sisteray launch party included The Pearl Harts (pictured after their riotously well received live set). The Alleycat on Denmark Street, where last chapter’s session was recorded, is totally packed out with friends in and with bands. Sweltering heat/ and riffs, plus a MAD for it crowd who had to keep coming out of the venue for oxygene and to cool down!

The Blinders tuning up for their first London show- a gig where they live up to their name.


People who think bands have nothing to say these days should get in a small venue where our DIY parallel universe says otherwise. With great big fuck off riffs, The Blinders pulse dynamic rock music power like an aural strobe.

As This Feeling stage starts setting up at The Roundhouse n for the #FIGHTBACK evening, it’s a joy to see that The Blinders start setting up to play after the Venues Day workshops and talks. An unexpected and exciting pleasure. What better venue and setting for your second London gig!

Just got time for the Venues Day and #FIGHTBACK Night hangovers to subside before we are back out to play again. This time, it’s another of our own events. Thursday 20th October 2016 TheZineUK Music Social No3 at The Urban Bar in Whitechapel. Again, it’s like a noisy house party with awesome live performancs and a load of new friends and futures made…


Thursday 20th October, Sandy K. Moz and Jimmy Bowman at our East End Social No 3. We met these lovely friends at No1 in January, via Sisteray. Sandy has since taken some amazing photos for this story, and here, Jimmy is not only making his debut (top notch) spoken word live appearance from a debut EP “Words Aren’t A Plaything” but has also arranged a debut live music event by The Glass Collectors for the end of November in Brighton (incidentally, where SONS are from, they had made the journey to be part of the gang of people in/with bands in the audience this evening)


Jean Genie’s Massive Hugs


From the DJ decks of Social No1 in January, to the stage of Social No3, - another multi talent of this tale, Jean Genie, gets the live music off to a beautiful start with some melodically crafted magic rock. We get an intimate preview of forthcoming, publicly released, debut recordings presented with big hugs‌


Alt rockers, Blush, are coming on in leaps, bounds and amazing feedback for their new single ‘Crying Glitter’ on End Of The Trail Records


Thank you to End Of The Trail Records, also, for bringing The Trap into our story. Blown away by catching them in Spring at one of label boss, Kelly Munroe’s events, we were honoured that the band chose this evening to launch their ‘Walk Alone’ / ‘My English Love’ EP live on stage, ending their set with some mosh fun down the front… They played This Feeling club a few weeks later…


#Uniqulture Check out Dronningen, partying and sharing the joy.. They came into our lives via an End Of The Trail Records show with SONS a few weeks earlier. Ben invited them to our social, they got down, got with it and sound so good that, as per how this tapestry weaves, see near future at TheZineUK.co.uk (courtesy of the ace Ev Bobrek) as we become a punky Creative Network Agency


Apeman Spaceman came into the story just over a year ago. At 2015’s Auttumn ArtBeat social, they were there for a meeting with our DJ that night, Mark Beaumont (NME, Guardian etc) and played a show for him a week before this one. A new band born last Spring with their debut release, this spring, they have a huge live and recorded rock sound with psychadelic rhythms that make people move. Having seen them a few times this year,at key shows including for This Feeling and John Kennedy of Radio X’s Remedy night, this is noticeably grabbing new followers and lively reactions with every show AND. Chuffed that they headlined 2016’s social, “Ones To Watch” is an understatement.

30th October 2016; It’s felt like Halloween on Planet Earth, since June. Luckily TheZineUK exists in a parallel dimension. So here we are, Saturday night, wonderful world (well, New Cross!), beautiful people (This Feeling Club).


Blackwaters


Saturday 30th October 2016, Amersham Arms, London.

Don’t you just love it when a rock n roll band’s live shoe does something so ferocious to your ears that your heart beat quickens and your mouth widens into a soppy, joyous grin?

Rock-bomb, Blackwaters, had played their first show in New Cross and, this evening, returned there to explode with an instantly magnetic live set for This Feeling.

Our parallel dimension where the biggest stars are on the smallest stages is not imaginary. Just follow the tales weaved into this tapestry since Chapter 1
