ALL OR NOTHING

Following three sell-out tours and a successful West End run, the ALL OR NOTHING musical team have put together the ALL OR NOTHING THE EXPERIENCE, which offers a tantalising taste of the hit production. 

 

ALL OR NOTHING – THE EXPERIENCE, with book by Carol Harrison and music and lyrics by the Small Faces, is a classic rock and roll story of four charismatic young kids from East London with humour, attitude, passion and, above all, talent. They became the Small Facesand were rocketed into the big time, only to discover the path to success is paved with exploitation, betrayal and, ultimately, tragedy.  

 

In 1965, a new phenomenon erupted out of London’s East End.  It was the essence of all that was cool.  It was Mod.  ALL OR NOTHING follows the rise and demise of the Small Faces, the band who encapsulated all that was Mod – a unique blend of taste and testosterone, clothes-obsessed and street-wise – but most of all, a dedication to rhythm ‘n’ blues.  The ALL OR NOTHING EXPERIENCEconcert show, celebrates the unique sound of this iconic Mod band, including hits Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Tin SoldierLazy SundayItchycoo Parkand All or Nothing, as well as offering an extended set of soulful sounds from the 60s. 

All Or Nothing - Band and scooter - Sept 2017 - 212.jpg

 

Carol Harrisonis probably best known for her role as Louise Raymond in EastEnders.  Other television roles include seven years as Gloria in Brushstrokes, Loretta opposite Ray Winstone in Get Back, and Dorothy in two series of London's Burning, as well as numerous TV appearances spanning four decades.  Carol’s theatre work includes Michael Rudman’s production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesmanat the National, Ripen Our Darknessat the Royal Court, Alan Parker’s production of Alfieat the Liverpool Playhouse and Lee Hall’s Cooking with Elvisat the Lyceum Theatre, Crewe.  She was also a founder member of Half Moon Theatre in London’s East End.  Her film credits include The Elephant ManQuadropheniaand Human Traffic

 

Carol is also currently writing the screenplay for theALL OR NOTHINGfeature film which is in development.

 

Chris Simmonsis probably best known for playing the role of DC Mickey Webbfor over twelve years in the long running ITV series The Bill.  He has also appeared in EastEnders as Mark Garland, a love interest for Kat Moon and in the Tracy Beaker spin-off CBBC show, The Dumping Ground.  He is currently appearing in Hollyoaks.

The show is endorsed and supported by many of those who feature in its story, including singer P.P. Arnold and Steve Marriott’s daughter, Mollie Marriott, who is the show’s vocal coach and creative consultant.

 

A 29-track cast recording from the musical, as well as a limited edition 15-track blue vinyl LP, is available now from the show website, www.allornothingmusical.com.

APEMAN SPACEMAN EP LAUNCH

From the rolling pastures, looming citadels and tangled forests of North London come Apeman Spaceman, swinging through the branches, screaming. An alt-rock post-punk set-up, fascinated by the darker side of humanity like a chimp turning over a log for grubs, but always aware that those tribal, brutal instincts can be transcended through romance and reason to take us to the stars, if we want.

Their favoured genre is dark comedy political horror drama. They rail against bullies and self-appointed authority. They are fearful the world’s gone irrevocably wrong. They empathise with those who find every day a battle, but want them to know they’ve got an army out there. They are Johnny Cooke (vocals), Rikki Mehta (guitar), Alexi Christou (bass), Ethan Kennedy (drums).

Living in a Teacake is the band’s fourth self-released single, the previous three having achieved fandom from John Kennedy (Radio X) and Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 MUSIC), champions of the underrepresented and discoverers of gems.

The song is an episode in the life of an agoraphobic girl who discovers she is out of food and has to go to the shops, and when it all gets too much she finds sanctuary in the teacakes on the conveyor belt at the till.

Any profits made from the release including merch sales will go to the mental health charity MIND to help support their incredible work.

The band are currently finishing off writing their debut album and organising UK live dates.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“Dirty, nasty, indie rock... A remarkable statement of intent”.
Clash Magazine (Have Not Love)

“Like My Bloody Valentine producing Presidents of the United States of America, but with David Bowie on vocals and a whole lot of weed”.

THE MAIN BODY OF THE MOTÖRHEADACHE’S SET LIST COMPRISES A LARGE NUMBER OF SONGS FROM MOTÖRHEAD’S FAST EDDIE CLARKE ERA, REGARDED BY MANY MOTÖRHEADBANGERS AS THE CLASSIC ERA FROM 1975 TO 1982. SONGS INCLUDE “ACE OF SPADES”, “BOMBER”, “OVERKILL”, “IRON FIST”, “THE HAMMER”, “THE CHASE IS BETTER THAN THE CATCH” AND, OF COURSE, THE BOMBASTIC “MOTÖRHEAD” - THE LAST OF LEMMY’S SONGS FOR HAWKWIND AND THE ONE THAT GAVE HIS NEW BAND ITS NAME.
