The Boileroom

This is the Kit is singer songwriter Kate Stables – often with the assistance of bassist Rozi Plain, guitarist Neil Smith and drummer Jamie Whitby-Coles.

The musical project has taken Kate from Winchester to Bristol to Paris, where she has now lived for 10 years, as well as tours, festivals and the adoration of people like Guy Garvey, The National and Sharon van Etten.

Kate Stables and friends are lined up for the Boileroom

The Physics House Band may not sound like your average band name – but then this foursome are not your average band.

They create avant-garde compositions that capture everything from jazz to prog to psych to doom-metal, all combined together with a furious energy transcending to their mind-bending live shows.

DARKNESS AND LIGHT – The Physics House Band

Their recently completed third record explores further into the expanses of intense darkness and light, involving soft ambient synths, angular guitars and saxophones.

The bulk of the record was written over a two-week period in a secluded farmhouse turned studio on Start Point, a Devonshire headland located between the English channel and the Celtic Sea. The record is a reflection of that time, as the cabin fever drew ever closer.

Find out what it all means when The Physics House Band play at the Boileroom, Guildford, on Monday (22 July).

Can you imagine a world where the country sound of Hank Williams meets the guitar riffery of AC/DC? Well, you don’t have to because Hayseed Dixie have got there before you.

rendered songs) Hayseed Dixie have more than half a million records around the world and played over 1,200 live shows in 31 different countries. The next comes at the Boileroom in Guildford on Thursday 20 June.
