SLUG

+ SPECIAL GUESTS

7PM-10:30PM : £8 ADV (18+)

Having released his debut album Ripe in April of this year, SLUG – aka Sunderland’s Ian Black, ably supported by a revolving cast of Sunderland’s finest – have plotted a brand new set of dates across coming months. Coming up are appearances at Green Man and Festival No 6, dates in Edinburgh and Manchester with FFS (having been handpicked by Alex Kapranos), not to mention their own headline jaunt across the country in October.


To celebrate, SLUG have released a brand new track, continuing in the grand tradition of North East bands covering Kate Bush. This time, SLUG tackle The Big Sky. Ian Black explains: ‘The approach was not try to match the majestic original (for I would have lost… badly) and have some fun with it. It has Rundgren pianos, daft synthesisers, a Led Zeppelin breakdown and myself struggling with the vocal delivery that only Kate would be able to pull off so brilliantly. Hope you enjoy it.’
