LAMB MAKE LINE-UP FOR BRACKNELL SO APPETISING
June 06, 2002
It promises to be a period of amazing arts events, incredible performances and, more importantly, fantastic music.
South Hill Park Arts Centre will be presenting a feast of top acts, including headliners Lamb, David Byrne and the Stereo MC’s.
Lamb — featuring the gorgeous vocals of Louise Rhodes and the music of Andrew Barlow — will be headlining the festival on Friday, July 5.
The lyrics to their hit single ‘Gorecki’, featured in the Moulin Rouge soundtrack and their sell-out shows, confirm the band’s status as one of the premier voices in dance music.
Musical maverick David Byrne will wow Saturday’s crowds.
Since penning classics like ‘Once in a Lifetime’ with his former band Talking Heads, he has collaborated with Brian Eno and founded the Luaka Bop record label.
And if you can’t get that current club anthem ‘Lazy’ out of your head, that was him too —with a little help from house producers Xpress 2.
On Sunday, 1990s band Stereo MC’s play the Ringmead venue — how can you forget their hip-hop, soul and rock chart-topper ‘Connected’?
Following the release of last year’s album ‘Deep Down and Dirty’, the band have proved that even after a nine-year break, they are a force to be reckoned with.
There’s something for everyone over the weekend — acts from The Herbaliser, Handsome Family and Lost Music of the Gaels, to Zohar, Dynamo Rhythm Aces and Lovegrocer.
Clubbing vibes come from acts including top London Afro-funk club The Shrine and turntablists Fingathing.
There is also a street festival in Bracknell town
centre throughout June featuring Green Ginger and Hoodwink.
Peepolykus return with their most popular show, ‘Let the Donkey Go’, as well as a host of installations, workshops, and circus cabaret from a range of local and international artists.
