BEACH BABY – Live Acoustic performance

FREE ENTRY show at 8:00pm on Monday 5th September (we'll be opening our doors at 7:45pm, with a first in the queue, first to be let in policy....)

And…we have Beach Baby live in store and playing acoustically for your ears.

You can see the FREE ENTRY show at 8:00pm on Monday 5th September (we’ll be opening our doors at 7:45pm, with a first in the queue, first to be let in policy….)

BUT…We offer you the chance to secure a comfortable spot at the in store by pre ordering the debut album on luscious vinyl HERE

You’ll then be invited to arrive earlier than advertised to collect your record, and grab a spot near the front. We will e mail you details near to the time of the event.

The guys will be signing the LP’s on the night. We’ll also sell a few CD’s of the album also.

Sounding notes:

Beach Baby’s touchstones have now evolved to include seminal acts on both sides of the Atlantic –from Parquet Courts and Mac DeMarco to Ariel Pink and cult lo-fi artist Cleaners From Venus.

Although rooted in the UK’s capital city, Beach Baby’s crisp, soaring take on apathetic alternative-pop finds it roots across Dorset and Sheffield, as well as Athens, Greece. The four-piece band – Lawrence (guitar, vocals), Ollie (guitar, keys, vocals), Iraklis (bass), and Shep (drums) – met in the musically-rich halls of Goldsmiths College in London, where the co-vocalists placed an ad looking to build on their then-folk-driven, dual songwriting partnership. Future bassist Iraklis (an Athens native) turned up dressing like a ‘50s college freshman (and swiftly got the gig), before drummer Shep completed the equation. While supporting their burgeoning pursuit with patchwork jobs ranging from a teaching assistant to feature-film script reader, the band have arrived fully formed at the distinct, occasionally dream-like sound and visuals of Beach Baby.

Catch the guys live and un acoustic at the Joiners in October.

So get your din dins at the show, and then tap your foot and synchronise your fork to mouth movements whilst your ears and belly harmonise together, and let Beach Baby become your favourite new band.

Beach Baby announce debut album ‘No Mind No Money’ released September 2nd via Island Records

“One of the best new bands in Britain” Sunday Times Breaking Act
“Make no mistake, Beach Baby have every means of triumphing in the big leagues” DIY
“Captures the best of several genres – post-punk, baggy, shoe gaze, grunge –without sounding like a mess” Guardian
“That aching, inexplicable magic of college innocence is all here” Stereogum
“You’ll fall for this London foursome” i-D

Beach Baby will release their much-anticipated debut album, ‘No Mind No Money’, on September 2nd via Island Records – with a video for latest single ‘UR’ premiering today. An extensive world tour has also been confirmed today, with the band supporting Beaty Heart around the US in September, before playing their own series of headline dates across Europe (including an album launch show at London’s Scala on September 9th). Additional festival slots are still to come at Reading & Leeds and Festival Number 6, with across-the-board support at Radio 1, 6Music, Radio X and Spotify.

Captured vividly across ‘No Mind No Money’, London four-piece Beach Baby have built up a tightly-sealed, vaguely surreal world of their own. Their initial spark proved equally unusual: co-vocalists and guitarists Ollie and Lawrence met outside a Halloween party at the student bar, where Lawrence was disconcertingly dressed like Malcolm McDowell in Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange. Inhabiting a character’s headspace proved to be cathartic for the four-piece, and extended to the fantastical, John Hughes and Virgin-Suicides-inspired visuals which accompany Beach Baby’s music (and are exhibited in the ‘UR’ video).

Beach Baby’s touchstones have now evolved to include seminal acts on both sides of the Atlantic –from Parquet Courts and Mac DeMarco to Ariel Pink and cult lo-fi artist Cleaners From Venus. They each supported themselves throughout this creatively-intense period with make-ends-meet jobs, which included working in burger joints, ‘charity muggers’, and – in perhaps the oddest of odd jobs – working as a script reader for production companies like Icon. The aptly-titled ‘No Mind No Money’ touches frequently on those less-glamorous uncertainties of post-campus life: apathy, escapism, and the distance between your own future and the iconic bands or movies you grew up on.

Reflecting on completing their debut album, Beach Baby commented: “we hope that it manages to be both playful and sincere. Often the lightness of some of the melodies and harmonies belie some slightly murkier lyrical sketches. But to us, the record feels like a collection of narratives which explore common themes of loneliness and malaise, ecstasy and ego.” Ultimately tracing the sensation of becoming a grown up – and all the challenges that brings nowadays – ‘No Mind No Money’ is a colourful, summer-ready record in which darker, colder times linger only slightly out of shot.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Skeleton Tree album launch with No.6 Cinema!

Thursday 8th September - Film starts at 9pm - arrive earlier for food and stay later for records

Final One More Time With Feeling Quad


Purchase tickets here

We are hugely excited to announce our first and rather natural tie in with our visual cousins No.6 Cinema at the dockyard.

A unique one night only cinema event, One More Time With Feeling will be the first ever opportunity anyone will have to hear Skeleton Tree, the sixteenth studio album from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.

We are honored to get the chance to sell you the new LP to complete your experience as the film finishes…as you exit the film, you will have a chance to pick up a copy of the new album.

This will be the first chance to purchase ‘Skeleton Tree’, on LP and CD anywhere in the world!

If you would like to reserve a copy of the record, use our reservation service HERE – this will guarantee you a record to collect on the night. An e mail confirmation will be sent to you with instructions on claiming your record on the night.

To add to this experience, we will be selling Vegan, Veggie, Meat and Gluten free pastry pies before the show. Pie & Film in a historic, and luxurious venue. Just how we like it.

Fill your belly before you fill your eyes and ears – with the incredibly and imaginatively titled:

‘Push the Pie away’ – British beef steak with Stilton Cheese.

‘Abattoir Blues’ –  butternut squash, mushroom & spinach in a coconut Thai Curry sauce (vg)

‘Stagger me’ – British freerange chicken with leeks and staggeringly good ale (gf)

‘Nick Cave and the Sesame Seeds’ – Heidi – goats cheese, sweet potato, spinach, red onion & roasted garlic (v)

Did you also know no.6 have now acquired a satellite dish and will stream from London theatres for the first time. Along with the the largest screen on the south coast! (I didn’t know that) –  Great, see you there!


A unique one night only cinema event directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper, TheAssassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly), One More Time With Feeling will be the first ever opportunity anyone will have to hear Skeleton Tree, the sixteenth studio album from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. The film will screen in cinemas across the world on 8th September 2016, immediately prior to the release of Skeleton Tree the following day.

Originally a performance based concept, One More Time With Feeling evolved into something much more significant as Dominik delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’
filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave’s narration and improvised rumination.
Filmed in black-and-white and colour, in both 3D and 2D, the result is fragile, raw and a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness.

Pie&Vinyl Presents…SPECTRES with support Gun Shy and Spaff Tits

Friday 16th September - Doors open at 8pm. Tickets available in store or via (BRING ID.)

Spectres Hawk Portsmouth edit Aug5th-min


Pie & Vinyl Presents has a tasty treat for you this September. A ‘cathartic baptism in a sonic lake of unholy frequencies that will leave you acutely aware of the tenuous grip you have on mortality’ type of treat. Spectresare coming. Yum.

Hailing from the sleepy Devon town of Barnstaple the band decamped to Bristol to find an audience for their rabid noise rock / shoegaze mongrel. Taking care to maintain control on everything they put their name to they released their long awaited debut ‘Dying’ on esteemed indie Sonic Cathedral in 2015.

Meeting the challenge of its title, the album is an immersing exploration of life, death, insomnia and addiction set against a soundscape of grinding guitars, pummelling rhythms and disembodied chanted vocals which serve to soothe and scare in equal measure.


‘The stink of the corpse of rock has never sounded so good.’ – The Line Of Best Fit. 8.5 / 10.

‘Bristol noise-freaks’ debut is a deeply unsettling but utterly compelling listen.’ – NME Magazine. 9 / 10.

‘Despite the luxurious, audible excess, ‘Dying’ is a masterclass of refrain.’ – DIY. 4 / 5.

‘Disturbingly cathartic yet unnervingly compelling, Dying is a record that demands to be heard from start to finish.’ – Drowned in Sound. 8 / 10.

Be sure also to check out the ‘Hunger’ ep released in 2013 which as just good as anything on the album and the ‘Dead’ remix album which features new takes on the tracks from ‘Dying’ from Hookworms, Factory Floor, Andy Bell of Ride (band) and Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai amongst others. They are currently working up album number 2 and are taking time out from recording to play this one off show.

Live they deliver an uncompromising brutal performance, akin to Swans in the way build hypnotic maelstroms from the smallest of fragments before smashing them to pieces. The sound system at the The Roundhouse, Camden was given a thorough examination when they opened for Lush (band) recently so we expect an obliteration of the intimate confines atDrift – in a good way of course. To further increase the intensity of their onslaught they’ll be projecting visuals on the night too – they will not be Disney.

Opening and making their Southsea debut will be Southampton based grunge-gazers Gun Shy. Formed by former MILK TEETH guitarist Josh Bannister following his departure earlier this year, Gun Shy have already achieved a ton of exposure on the blogs and release the ep ‘First Transmission’ on Failure by Design Records on May 6th. Expect to see more from them soon. Lots more.


• Doors – 8:00
•Spaff Tits – 8:20
• Gun Shy – 9:00
• Spectres – 10:00
• After Party – 11:00 – 03:00

Entry to the after party is also included within the ticket price so you can keep going until 3am should you wish. Drinks offers starting from £1.50 will be available all night. Just over 100 tickets available so be sure to pick one up soon as they will move QUICK.

Tickets can be purchased instore at Southsea’s Pie&Vinyl in Castle Road for the top value price of £6 a piece or online via wegottickets using the link below. Being completely unbiased we suggest you get them instore as you’ll avoid a booking fee and can enjoy the wonderful grub and vinyl goodies on offer.

It’s also their first Portsmouth outing so be sure to get down and mosh hard to another of the most exciting new bands in the country.

Happy Meal Ltd.
Probably the most exciting and talked about new band in the country right now and also one you may not have heard of. The mysterious London outfit are creating huge waves on the London underground scene with their 80’s glam rock meets sleazy post-punk. Imagine The Fall, Girl Band, The Horrors and Fat Whites mixed into one pot and you’re still not there. We’ve been trying to book these guys for ages so head down for their first ever out of London show. They’re insannnnnnnnne live.

Hotel Lux
New super mysterious sleazy punk outfit. Hotel Lux make incredible, grimey post-punk meets garage rock, they’re a new outfit from Portsmouth but from recordings they’ve sent over to us are already one of the most exciting acts from the area. Just trust us on this one…

Uncle Jimmy’s Wandering Hand Band
New garage-rock outfit featuring members of Melt Dunes one of the finest live band in the UK. Expect sleaze and sin from the the illusive outfit.

Tickets are just £5 in advance which is a bloody bargain for 5 insane bands so if you’re down the night before then come party and if you weren’t planning on coming the night before then get booking a hotel or b&b or find a couch or something to crash on as this is going to be crazy funnnn!

On this evening, Play Dead will be opening the show, and you will be able to see all artwork for the first time, enjoy some free booze, and a short live acoustic set.
