Vinny Peculiar at The Castle on Tuesday 26th November 2019

Vinny Peculiar

Singer-Songwriter and Poet Vinny Peculiar [aka Alan Wilkes] grew up in Worcestershire and trained as a nurse before signing to Manchester cult label Ugly Man records [former home to Elbow]. He’s since put out twelve albums of literate autobiographical pop music over a twenty-year career and has regularly toured band, solo and duo shows. Variously described as – ‘an under sung national treasure’ [UNCUT] – ‘a warm hearted Morrissey’ [Q Magazine] and ‘the missing link between Jarvis Cocker and Roger McGough’ [Irish Times] past work associations include Bill Drummond[KLF], Luke Hainesand Jah Wobble[PIL] and his various bands have included ex members of The Smiths, OASIS, Aztec Camera & The Fall.He’s also written and recorded as ParlourFlames, the band he formed in 2013 with exOASIS rhythm guitarist Bonehead. 2019 has seen VP touring with The Wedding Present, Duke Special & Wreckless Eric. New album WHILE YOU STILL CAN is a politicised hard rock affair and comes out 28.10.19 with band tour dates in support…

What the papers say...

If Tony Hancock had made pop records they’d have sounded like this’ Q MAGAZINE
Part Pulp, part Kinks, and very much part Peculiar, this is observational, punk-tinged songwriting at its best. HOT PRESS
‘A well-measured introduction to an under sung national treasure’ UNCUT MAGAZINE
Wildly witty with abject sadness and pathos in swathes, like a warm-hearted Morrissey no less’ INDEPENDENT
‘The missing link between Jarvis Cocker and poet Roger McGough and some of the wittiest lyrics this side of Wreckless Eric' IRISH TIMES
A strange brave captivating album, matched by fascination, dark humor and warmth’ DAILY MIRROR
'Crashing poppily through Vinnys world of nostalgia and insight every song stuffed to the gills with melody and eccentricity, clever, funny and wonderfully weird’ R2 MAGAZINE

Steve O'Donoghue

Manchester singer/songwriter Steve O'Donoghue has recently returned from a sellout tour of Ireland which culminated with monumental night at The Derry Playhouse with The Undertones. He has opened shows for Squeeze, Hazel O'Connor, Martin Stephenson, Roddy Frame , Lindisfarne and Vinny Peculiar to name a few. His songs have been described as witty, heartfelt love songs. He describes them as songs about girls who found out they didn't like me.
