BBC 1NOV (2) (453x640)


Indie chart toppers, Bombay Bicycle Club join us behind the decks at Goldsmiths Uni’s favourite, the Amersham Arms.
Having recently been nominated for this year’s Mercury Music Prize the Bombay Boys are in the mood for a party, and who would blame them after the year they’ve had?


Having had their first number one album with ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’, a ridiculous number of festival appearances over the summer and with probably their biggest gig ever lined up at Earl’s Court just before Christmas, these guys have a lot to celebrate.

They are off on a European tour just after this show, with this being your last chance to see them in London until they return from the continent, so let’s send them off in style, with this different kind of fix. (Get it?)

Full Line Up:


The Arrivals are a Pompey quartet who dub themselves as Psychedelic Indie House. They are in the midst of conquering the south coast and are now coming after the London scene as well.

The Fifty-Four Plates, a quintet from Essex, are providing the grit for the evening, with their brand of grungy, folk twinged indie/rock.

Halfpenny Pass are one of a local bands, hailing from North London. This Trip Hop collective are already making a name for themselves after only forming this summer.

Y Key Operators are an Indie dance band hailing from Manchester. They’ve played a ton of festivals up north this summer as well as the Legendary Manchester venue, The Deaf Institute.

Hester are a chilled out Indie band with evidence of some influences from world music. They’ve recently been busy gigging around the capital and enjoying some airplay of local radio.

Off Colour join us from Milton Keynes. This duo specialise in soulful indie and, after releasing their first single recently, they’re now ready to take on the capital.
Solomon Dent is a London acoustic singer/songwriter with a unique voice who has recently enjoyed sharing stages alongside big names including Finley Quaye and The Specials’ Neville Staple

Saturday 22 November : Exit Calm

014 11 22 exit calm
Johnny Sparkle presents EXIT CALM
last London show of 2014
& special guests, live!

“Sky-scraping emotion and glowering grooves.”
Q Magazine
“Drip feeds its mesmerising hedonism over multiple visits like hypnotic suggestion.” - Counterfeit Mag
“This band reclaim the guitar band as something to have faith in again.” - Penny Black Music
Producing music with heart, style and integrity mixed with the euphoria and hedonism. The talent of Rob Marshall’s haunting guitar work and the fluid rhythm section weaves between the raw but compelling vocals of Nicky Smith that have made them a firm favourite on the live circuit.

Immersing the listener straight into the tripped out mesmerising world of Exit Calm, ‘The Promise’ opens with a blissed out swirl of 60s meets shoegaze that immaculately sits alongside stadium rock amidst post-rock and psychedelic tendencies. The cacophonous guitar and bass lines are perfectly set against the pounding percussion of ‘When They Rise’, ‘Rapture’ and ‘Holy War’.

Exit Calm have supported the likes of Modest Mouse, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Boxer Rebellion and Soulsavers and taken to the stage at V Festival and Tokyo’s Liquid Rooms to name a few.

Support from:

Electric Child-House

“The perfect exponent of modern day psychedelia” (Gary Powell, The Libertines)

” Agitated vocals soar over a wall of early verve-esque sound! Driven by a bassline that Mani would give his right arm to of written” (YO! LDN)

5 piece rock and roll band from London with soaring psychedelic guitars and groove laden riffs. Electric Child House are currently working on there debut E.P due to be released early 2015.

White Room

“White Room are definitely one to watch, and in lead singer Jake they have got a great young vocalist.” PAUL WELLER

Formally known asThe Basis, this young five piece from Brighton have recently supported the likes of Paul Weller and Miles Kane and are clearly a band to look out for over the next year. With great energy, tight playing and boundless enthusiasm, a bass player with funky slapping creative balance, dual electric guitar textures and a lead singer, Jake, with all the intensity of a young Ian Curtis these boys are sure to get the party started#

The Valkarys

An Edinburgh based Garage/Psychedelic band formed in 2006. Their first success came two years later with the release of the single “Candy Girl” on Diffusion records, gaining airplay on XFM Scotland and embarking on a 2 week promotional UK tour.

After relocating to london in 2010, the band self released their debut album “The Average Can Blind You To The Excellent”. Tracks from this album were played by Carl Barat (The Libertines) at his club nights in London. This led to notable shows including Alan McGee’s Death Disco Notting Hill Art’s Club and Babyshambles club night’s. 2012 saw the release of a 5 track E.P. “Chloroform” and another E.P. “Psychodelica” was released in 2013.

In January 2014, the band returned to Edinburgh, and are currently working on a new album to be released later this year.

Free entry to the Exit Calm aftershow party at the venue till 3am, with ticket purchase.

The Bracknall

Influenced by the poetic nous of lyrists such as Jamie T and Billy Bragg, live they deliver brilliantly executed pop songs at break neck speed. Using dry wit and ironic observations, front man Jack Dacey colourfully paints a picture of what is to be young and all the highs and the lows that come with it….


London-based rock band, consisting of singers/guitarists Matthew Hart and Tom Monks, bassist Jonathan Hart and drummer Nicholas Baker. They have come a long way in less than two short years, from writing and recording home demos to playing some of London’s most iconic music venues.

Along the way they have amassed 10,000 views on their YouTube page and have attracted the attention of some independent record labels, as well as iconic musicians such as Brian May and Dave Grohl. Taking inspiration from The Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Oasis, Radiohead and The Verve, Headlong have made their own niche in the Indie/Alt-Rock scene,
building a repertoire of vibrant, powerful original songs.


Raunchy, crazed, electrifyingly contagious rock comin’ atcha live!

Blackjack are here to ease you into insanity and bring you rock, the way it deserves to be played. Drawing influence from the likes of AC/DC, Airbourne, Led Zeppelin and The Darkness, to name a few, these boys stand out as true born showmen. The obvious amount of fun they have on stage is infectious and bleeds out into the crowd, converting any ‘non-rocker’ into a blackjack groove-slut.
Blackjack released their first single on March 1st 2014 which coincided with a sold out gig at the Newcastle O2 Academy. Check out the music video for the single here, it includes footage from the single release gig as well as footage of the band flash mobbing busy streets across the country!…

The Valve

Creating cuts driven by Tom’s lush vocal and rich guitar tone, reminiscent of the post-punk and goth scenes of the late 70s and early 80s, The Valve sit at the forefront of an alt-grunge renaissance. Their songs are filled with danceable hooks and insistent drum beats, but most importantly put a focus on melody – producing a sound that will be familiar to fans of the Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age – the latter being a key influence in Tom’s writing.

Uncle Phil

Uncle Phil are a raw and dynamic alt-rock trio, playing original tracks influenced by the likes of Biffy Clyro, Arctic Monkeys and Elvis Costello.

Temple Dagger:

2 piece frenetic Post-punk malaise & doom from New Cross.

Matt fletcher (Acoustic)

As a teenager, founder Matt Fletcher, was rooting around an abandoned Mental Health Hospital in his hometown. He stumbled across an Art Therapy room for the patients, and was astonished by the powerful, disturbing and beautiful pieces of work he discovered, something that stayed etched in his mind.

“It was the mix of perceiving beauty yet feeling disturbed that I found most powerful and I wanted to use my music as a means of communally exposing people to these feelings.”

His first release as of 30/09/14 is ‘Soon As I Can Get It’ EP, blurting out his subconscious, it’s sleazy yet conscientious, both troubled and optimistic, incorporating a schizophrenic approach to genre.

Entry: £6. Goldsmiths students: £3
