Odmansbox + Ali Horn on Wednesday 29th May 2019
Birmingham Promoters by arrangement with Funnel Music present ODMANSBOX, plus support from Ali Horn.
Odmansbox are an art-rock trio from Birmingham, UK, whose idiosyncratic set is reminiscent of artists as varied as Prefab Sprout, Nick Cave, The Cure and David Bowie.
In July 2018 they launched their debut EP ‘I’ve Got Nothing’ at The Edge in Birmingham with an extended line-up. The title track (an unusually upbeat song about writer’s block) was picked up by BBC Introducing West Midlands.
They perform regularly around the UK, and have played at Zero Degrees Festival in Lincolnshire.
They are currently preparing to release their follow-up EP, produced by Dave Formula (former keyboard player for post-punk legends Magazine.
Ali Horn is back. Liverpool’s prodigal son returns with his kaleidoscopic new single ‘Modern Voodoo’. Released via Rooftop Records, the track is already gaining support from both his local BBC Introducing and BBC 6 Music.
Speaking of his new single, Ali says ‘Nowadays I think people (including myself) have forgotten what life is really about. We’re force-fed consumer fetichism and the full brightness glare of a phone screen has replaced real eye contact. We’re distracted by transient pleasures and it seems that climbing a social ladder where nobody has even met has become more important than family. I’m disgusted by it and I’m part of it. That’s Modern Voodoo. BUT… There’s a way out.’
Having recently performed at Parr Street Studios during the BBC 6 Music Festival in Liverpool, Ali will be back playing in his hometown for Liverpool Sound City before setting off for a string of shows throughout May.
