Plastic Jeezus, Karla Kane, Fun of the Pier at Chaplin’s

October 16, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 12:00 am

Hello. We’re Plastic Jeezus. We play music.
There are three of us: Dave, Aaron and T’Other Simon.
Dave plays drums. He wasn’t born. He was constructed by military scientists. Underneath his almost-human skin, there is an array of sophisticated circuitry and wires and ‘stuff’. When he’s not playing drums, or being attached to his recharging dock, he likes to ‘enjoy the great outdoors’ and go SCUBA diving. Dave is water resistant up to 200 metres.
Aaron is a man of mystery. It is believed that he hails from the north of England and once felled an oak-tree with nary but his steely gaze. He plays bass guitar and sings backing vocals. Aaron was once crowned ‘Miss Acapulco 2047’ after a paperwork mix-up.
T’Other Simon plays ukulele and sings. He works for ‘The Man’, but occasionally tries to subvert the system by taking a longer lunch break than expected. T’Other Simon has no hobbies. He once tried to have a hobby, but it didn’t work out. Several people ended up seriously wounded, and the bowling alley had to be fully refurbished.

Karla Kane’s debut solo album, “King’s Daughters Home for Incurables,” leads listeners into an intriguing land of acorns and tea leaves; feminism and fairy tales; pagan pop and pastoral protest songs; whimsical wanderings and sharp observations on the current state of the world. It’s a place for chronic worriers, hopeless romantics, Anglophiles, patriarchy smashers and gentle dreamers, where sunny California indie meets melancholy English folk and the redwood meets the oak.

Fun of the Pier is an acoustic-pop band from Nottingham led by Helen (vocals, guitar) and Mark (bass) Luker and joined occasionally and in the studio by Richard Snow (guitar, vocals). They draw comparisons to Crowded House and The Marine Girls for their charming sound and insightful songwriting. Their debut album, 14:42, named after the stopped clock in Richard’s studio, was released on 1 September 2017.
