  1. Idles are a UK band tipped for big things and being touted as one of the best bands coming out of Bristol. They are a popular local festival band headlining at Dot to Dot and Simple Things. They are coming to the Villa on 23 November. Videos and gig information here - http://www.villagaie...38;menuid=11570 This is how they describe themselves - Idles sound has always been a hard one to categorise, but imagine something between the intense rock and roll of The Walkmen and the dark post-punk of Joy Division and you'll be somewhere close. However, anyone who has witnessed the bands live show will confirm that they are very much about doing their own thing. Joe's vocals have the yearnings of soul and the rage of punk, all riding on the blissfully driven bass lines of Dev - This is more than complimented by the spiky dual guitars of Andy S and Mark Bowen and the logic-defying drumming of Jon Beavis - carving out a fully-charged live show that is as thrilling as it is unforgettable. More info about Idles - www.idlesband.co.uk Support for Idles on 23 November at the Villa will be Cartesian Jetstream (who recently featured on Tom Robinson's BBC Radio 6 show) and Ballagroove DJs. Check out Cartesian Jetstream on their Soundcloud page here - http://soundcloud.co...esian-jetstream Edit: Support info added

More recently he has developed into an influential figure of UK songwriting; crossing barriers between punk, psych-pop and English folk, inspiring a generation of successful home-grown artists. Chris has played shows around the world with artists such as Ben Folds, Elbow, The National, Divine Comedy, Bellowhead, Walkmen, Frank Turner, Delgados, British Sea Power, Arab Strap, Carter USM, Marcus Brigstocke, Madrugada, Robyn Hitchcock, Stewart Lee, Iain Sinclair and many others.

In 2012, his blog entry criticising the Olympics Closing Ceremony, Not Just Shit But Dangerous brought 65,000 readers to this site in two days. Chris T-T’s 9th album The Bear, recorded with his band lineup Hoodrats, was released by Xtra Mile Recordings in October 2013.
  3. Nu / anti-folk artist and winner of Acoustic Magazines's UK singer-songwriter competition. His songs are instantly accessible, everyman tales of life, love and everything else in between. Played in a folk-ish style with occasional use of the guitar as a percussive tool, as well as some two handed venturing around the fretboard, Gaz's simple yet poignant songwriting captures the imagination of the listener. "Great songs and solid playing... A highly promising album from a talent to watch." Acoustic Magazine "There's a certain charming Billy Bragg-esque quality to these everyman tales... a gem of an EP!" (8/10) Greg Thomas, Rock City "Gaz has an honesty and charm about his performance which is seldom seen amongst his contemporaries." Will Walder, BBC Wiltshire Introducing "You really should do yourself the favour of checking out Gaz's music." Dave Franklin, Green Man Music "One of the most passionate singer/songwriters I've ever seen." Blues Matters magazine https://www.facebook.com/gazbrookfieldmusic Guest support act Jeff Jepson Show 8pm Tickets are £15 and now available on www.eTickets.im/jp and also available in hard copy from Jabberwocky. Biography Gaz Brookfield is a solo acoustic musician based in Bristol. His songs are instantly accessible every-man tales of life, love and everything else in between. Since the start of his solo career Gaz has had the pleasure of gigging and/or touring with Frank Turner, Newton Faulkner, The Levellers, The Ataris, Mike Herrera (MXPX), Vinnie Caruana (The Movielife), Jonah Matranga, I Am Kloot, Miles Hunt, Dodgy, Jim Lockey and The Solemn Sun, Dave McPherson and many more. He recently secured an endorsement deal with Godin/Seagull guitars. In 2010 he won Acoustic Magazine's Singer Songwriter of the year competition, earning him, among other prizes, a slot on the Big Top stage at the Beautiful Days festival. This is where JonnoPromotions first saw Gaz play and led to loads of other festival appearances over that summer, and bookings for even more in 2011 and 2012, firmly cementing him as a regular on the UK festival circuit. Gaz recently toured the UK's O2 Academies with The Levellers, where he broke all the venue records for numbers of albums sold by a support act every night (upwards of 60 albums sold per night). This secured him yet more tour dates with them in Europe in May 2013 and the UK in June 2013. With over 800 gigs under his belt to date, he continues to tirelessly tour the UK, proving that the "journeyman" title is more than a simple metaphor. His albums "Trial & Error", "Live from the west end of the M4 corridor" and "Tell It To The Beer" are available on CD and online through iTunes, 7Digital & Amazon.
