All hail the, nearly, longest day
THE DIAMOND FAMILY ARCHIVE
The Diamond Family Archive are a unique English lo-fi, psych-folk, multi-instrumentalist roving ensemble led by the song writing of Laurence Collyer
Live, The Diamond Family Archive craft a mesmeric live-show from drums, acoustic guitars, lots of FX pedals, keyboards set to drone, tape delay, loops and bellows, bows, harmonicas, cosmic harps, toys and broken cymbals. All coming together to create music which holds echos of post-rock, traditional folk, spiritual soul music, psychedelic rock and lo-fi.
Front man of Snails, whose perfect pop symphonies have been championed by The Pastels, Jarvis Cocker, Gideon Coe and many others, turns his hand to the solo song, of which he is also a master, with a turn of phrase, musically and lyrically, that will have you humming and toe tapping long after last ale has been supped and the last order called.
Plus Great Pizza and Ales from downstairs and the night is Free!
