Please to announce another winter in store performance to warm the cockles of your heart…

On Thursday 4th December at 6:00pm, we are delighted to welcome the band ‘Moulettes’ in store for an intimate performance in celebration of their latest album ‘Constellations’.

To see the performance is absolutely free, you just need to make sure you are one of the first 60 people through the doors, when they open at 5:45pm (ish).

The best thing about our tea time slot in stores is just that – come and get your evening grub, choose your pie, served with creamy mash and minty peas with a smothering of piping hot gravy or traditional liquors and back and marvel at the live music.

We will also be selling the guys record, which they will kindly sign if you wish.

Moulettes released their third studio album ‘Constellations’ on June 2nd. Recorded in studios, churches, tunnels, workshops
and bedrooms around Brighton in the summer of 2013, it is their most complete and ambitious album to date. The album
features a chamber orchestra that includes performances from legends Arthur Brown and Herbie Flowers (Lou Reed,
Bowie) and contemporaries Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets), The Unthanks, Emma Richardson (Band Of Skulls) and a host of
players from Sweden, Germany, Greece, Holland, South Africa, Australia, Scotland and Bosnia. The band has an incredible
ability to blend several genres with Cello, Violins, Guitars, Drums, Bassoon, Double bass, brass and synths into an
incomparable pop/rock/folk ensemble. Also renowned for their breathtaking live shows it is clear that few bands have the
creative range and work ethic of Moulettes. Headed up by the fierce female songwriter and Cellist Hannah Miller, the band
also contains a mix of self taught and classically trained members who have shared the stage and studio with the likes of
Mick Jagger, Nick Cave, Seasick Steve, Bonobo and Dave Gilmour.
Their significant initial period was spent playing live and promoting the Den Of Iniquity nights in London /Manchester and
Southampton. Since then Moulettes have been recognised as front runners and innovators within what has been labelled
the ‘Indie folk’ and ‘Prog folk’ genre. This genre blends bands such as Pink Floyd, Pentangle and Bjork with elements of
chamber pop and Scandinavian folk. Moulettes have been constantly been on the road for 5 years with varying sized
ensembles playing festivals as varied as Cropredy /End of the Road/Bestival/ and Cambridge Folk. They continue their busy
gig schedule playing a host of summer festival dates and a Headline tour in Europe and UK in Oct-Dec. If you are looking
for good song writing, incredible musicianship and a truly unique projection of all music to date squeezed into accessible
pop tunes Moulettes is the band for you.
