Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 47 – with Sleep Beggar in Session

By |February 20th, 2017|0 Comments

Holyhead’s Sleep Beggar released ‘Depression Tactics’ last year – one of my favourite albums of 2016. So it was an honour to invite them to do a live session for the show. Jamie Burne has been in Portrait Of A Lifetime and Bastions along the way, and regular Sleep Beggar sidekick King Nick had thrown a sicky so Jamie was ably assisted by DJ MacKenzie for this session.
There’s also a forthcoming Sleep Beggar / Carl Kavorkian project in the pipeline.

Sleep Beggar tour

Holyhead’s Sleep Beggar is about to release a new dark hip-hop album ‘Depression Tactics’ on American Scream Records of New Jersey. To celebrate this incredible record, they are heading out on a UK tour to promote it.
Philadelphia’s Carl Kavorkian is also flying over to play the ten or eleven dates, which kick off at Mudshark Records in Bangor at 1.30pm on Friday 5th August with Maines in support.
Sleep Beggar and Carl Karvorkian then head out across the UK before returning to North Wales for the third of the (so far) successful Noise Annoys shows at The North in Rhyl. Both acts are joined by Spam Javelin, Los Muchachos and Maines for that finale.
On the latest Batspodcast, Jamie is interviewed about the Noise Annoys Shows and says,
‘You can have grindcore and rappers on the same bill… It’s not about genres, it’s about your headspace.’

Get ‘Depression Tactics’ here soon…

Death Of Youth

The second of two nights of mayhem ripping across the North Wales coast’s sadly somewhat diminishing live music venue scene. Tonight I find myself in Rascals, Upper Bangor for what promises to be a bit of a treat for this old school punky goth chick.
Noise Annoys is proof that the heart of punk is still beating and seems to be happily enjoying a bit of a revival in spite of this extreme right wing political climate. I’m sure it’s been there all along, just below my radar, but it’s a welcome return for me as it’s a sound I’ve been missing.

Sleep Beggar Conwy1

Wow! What a great gig… The second of such at the Comrades Club, tucked within the medieval walls of Conwy. And what a great turnout..! When you consider that a lot of bands end up playing to the other bands on the bill (if they haven’t gone home straight after their own set), then tonight shows people do exist and we can all have a great time!

New Video – SLEEP BEGGAR – Mothertongue

By |December 10th, 2015|0 Comments

Fresh from his tour of the USA, Holyhead’s Sleep Beggar – aka Jamie Burne (of Bastions) has released a new track, Mothertongue (Love Is The First Language We Speak).

 

This follows on from the split 7″ single with touring buddy JE Double F of New Jersey released earlier this year. The video seems to be a three minute documentary of the recent tour. It is also a prelude to a forthcoming album in 2016. (bandcamp)
