Harvest Sun Presents
Eyesore & The Jinx
Plus special guests
An empty crisp packet blows past a rundown social club in a small town, its chipped and peeling sign a limp signifier of general neglect. People walk past and don’t give it a second glance. Inside, the carpet is threadbare and the split cushions on the bar stools and couches tell a similar story. The cracks in its already shabby exterior are only getting wider and deeper. This was once a place that bustled and thrived, and was important to so many; but only a few souls now remain, still searching for some means of escapism. Apathy has killed it.
The same scene can be found at greasy spoon cafés, pool halls, boarded up pubs and soulless shopping centres across the country, the crumbling façades of broken Britain. Bitterness stalks frustration in such places, quickly followed by anger at the hopelessness and of having been left behind. But there’s a resilience there too, an ability to look at the situation not just with despair but with a wry smile and a self-deprecating sense of humour.
EYESORE & THE JINX are acutely aware of these simmering tensions, and are able to tap in to the undercurrent of unease and channel it through their own darkly comedic filter. Bassist/vocalist Josh Miller, guitarist Liam Bates and drummer Eoghan Robinson are the observers of “shit Britain”, as they term it, spitting out “a collection of maudlin odes to the world’s impending annihilation”. They do this in the form of a frenetic punkabilly that is angry, funny and tight as hell. You might already have seen one of their (many) pulsating live shows and been hooked in by their intensity, the hold and release of emotions. You may even have heard their single, Gated Community, which rages about the smallminded factions of society over a breakneck beat: “The rigid sameness attracted me/The rich and famous attracted me/The original sadists attracted me/And that’s why I live in a gated community”.
