Slow Motion Stranger

A rare return to the Zanzibar stage for Ian Ruddock in his Slow Motion Stranger guise will see an acoustically driven performance that can be as much emotionally uplifting as dark and twisted, with pounding percussion and complicated song structures.

There seems to be so many influences that come through its hard to gauge how they can knit it all together, Blues, Folk, Rock, Funk, Spanish and Asian themes feature throughout. Its a testament to great song writing and equally accomplished musicianship that delivers on every occasion.

Tone Puppets

Resident band at The Lovely Job, Tone Puppets produce an alternative rock sound with an eastern influence. The mix of these musical styles makes for a sinister sound thats been likened to the Beta Band/Nirvana and The Doors.

Their debut promo single Ignore is currently getting re-pressed to meet demand as the first run sold out in one day and after a taking in London a run of nights in the south have been set up as a follow up.


Bird are causing a bit of stir on the music scene in Liverpool at the moment with regular airplay and magazines falling over themselves to get an interview. Their music has a definite sixties feel to it and has been described as Atmospheric Folk.

Very much in demand Bird recently shared a bill with Hannah Peel and are working on their debut E.P. set for release in the near future. There is a haunting feel to the ensemble that incorporate violins, acoustic guitars and four part harmonies which could conjure up some sort of occult gathering.

Chris Selman

Touring his latest album 'All Or Nothing' with a full band, Chris started getting recognition in Liverpool back in 2009 with continued airplay on radio Merseyside and getting championed by the Liverpool Echo and Daily Post. Chris' music is reminiscent of James Blunt with a folk pop feel to it.

Chris has taken his music for extended stints in Sheffield, Manchester, and now based in Leeds he has gained acclaim where ever he resides. He now brings his brand of heartfelt folk pop back to the town where he started his musical journey.

Chemical Casino

Having already released the successful single 'Jack Boot Boy' on Crash Club Records, Chemical Casino are about to tour their new EP 'My Reason' released in May of this year and are bringing their huge sound to The Lovely Job.

Musically the band state some of their influences as Pink Floyd, Ocean Colour Scene, Led Zeppelin but its their association with the Mod scene that really shines through with hard punchy rock pop tracks being the staple diet.

The Romleys

The Romleys are a 3-piece band from Liverpool consisting of Chris Fisher, Garry Eager and Mark Purvis, they have a grass roots feel to their music and Gary Eager sings with enough gravel to take you back to the bluesy 60's Mersey beat era.

There's a psychedelic feel thrown in a certain conjectures to catch the listener off guard at times and most noticeably a throw back to early blues rock and roll, Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson is not far from the mark.
