The smell of Easter is in the air, or maybe too many people eating too many eggs already? Either way the Ironworks Easter Showcase on Saturday 7th April is just around the corner and as promised we will take you on a musical journey to introduce you or reacquaint you with some of the acts on the line up.
So download and stick it on your iPod and take the dog for a walk or listen now and turn it up loud!
Featured on this Easter Showcase MixCast:
Inverness metal heads who won the 2011 Scottish Alternative Music Awards for best metal band and winner of the Bloodstock 2011 Battle of the Bands competition. A sound that has the same kind of combustible force that fueled the expansion of the universe after the big bang. Watching these guys live must be like witnessing the earth shake and spit fire.
They like folk, rock and blues so they called themselves The Frues. The band are planning a nationwide summer tour in support of their forthcoming EP.
As Ashley & The Cosmonauts, Ashley is currently busy in the studio recording their debut EP which would make a lovely Easter present for fans! This version of her brilliant “The Castle” was originally recorded for the Midas Highland Songwriters CD which was a release highlighting a selection of the finest emerging singer songwriters from the Highlands & Islands.
Electro pop rap trio Team Kapowski are new to the Inverness music scene in their current form but this line up featuring former members of Theatre Fall and Fallow are sure to take Inverness by storm in 2012 with their tongue-in-cheek rap with delicious electro hooks and mighty drums.
Them & Us
Them & Us is a production project started by Mark Mackenzie and Liam Macleod. In their short time together they have already supported Annie Mac at Ironworks in Inverness and released their debut digital single, “The Bomb”. The pair are also soon to announce a record deal with a respected electro/house independent label that has in the past released material by the legendary Pete Tong.
