THE SOUND OF POP ART

Just confirmed for Saturday 7th August are The Sound Of Pop Art (acoustic set) and an opportunity to hear some genuine Beatnik Pop / Acoustic Soul of the finest order. Think, Odessey & Oracle The Zombies, Syd Barrett, Up The Junction Manfred Man, John Barry

TSOPA features; On vocals Mr Tony Jenkins, described as "an extraordinary vocalist with natural harmony in his head"; On guitar, Chris Free who previously wrote/played sonic guitar for one of the UK's first & finest beat punk groups The Users, and was asked to join Paul Weller's Respond label as songwriting duo A Craze, penning the 1983 UK summer soul hit for Tracie Young Give It Some Emotion; Decio Filho, an extra special guest guitarist from Brazil adding explosive colour and intuitive beatnik playing ; all accompanied by bass and percussion.

English to the hilt, Cambridge's T.S.O.P.A. see former The Users and A Craze guitarist/songwriter Chris Free (with Users drummer Andrew O'Hanrahan) propelling a trio who update Mod riffs and attitudes and pour sunny harmonies over them. Influenced by The Who, The Kinks and The Jam, they succeed in turbo-charging these time-honoured tropes with gung-ho gusto. Tony Jenkins sings of shopping centres and high street girls in a flurry of optimism. 'Visions Of You' and 'Let's Make Love in London' add a dash of Barrett/Bowie whimsy. Infectiously enthusiastic, this is classic boho pop: plenty invigorating
