Stuntfox was set up in 2010 by Piers Miller to create great nights out in great venues, with great music and strange and beautiful people.
At CC14, Stuntfox presents an eclectic mix of live semi acoustic artists throughout Saturday afternoon at the Abbey.
2:30 – 3:00 pm: ARCHIE SYLVESTER
3:15 – 3:45 pm: FI MCCLUSKY
4:00 – 5:15 pm: YAN YATES & THE TWO DOLLAR HOOKERS
5:30 – 6:00 pm: THE RUSTY SUNS
6:15 – 7:00 PM: THE DASH
Touted as the long awaited British riposte to The Ramones, Stooges and New York Dolls, London based four-piece The Dash are notorious for leaving the stage in a storm of broken bones, hearts and guitars and have played alongside such acts as Morrissey, Patti Smith, Prince, Biffy Clyro, Dirty Pretty Things’ Carl Barat, The Gossip, Black Lips and even on request of Mighty Boosh, IT Crowd star Matt Berry.
The messy haired and sharp-heeled band can currently be heard smashing their way through their version of the Spector classic ‘Baby I Love You’ in the advertisement for the new Impulse fragrance ‘Lovely Rock’ which stacked up over 150,000 Youtube views in the first four weeks of airing alone.
The group – Marc Hayward (Vocals, guitar), Gav Molloy (Vocals, guitar), Ev Sekkides (Bass, vocals) and Gareth Tyler (drums) – were hand-picked to star alongside model Laura Berlin in the campaign following a huge year which saw them not only release their debut single ‘3 Times More’ through Tin Pan Recordings (championed by legendary DJ Steve Lamacq on BBC 6MUSIC), but also support Babyshambles in front of 1,000’s, collaborate and headline Iggy Pop festival IGGYFEST with Blockheads, Madness, PJ Harvey and Tom Waits right-hand man Terry Edwards, play chaotic underground parties in Europe and front their own packed-out residencies in London.
Rusty SunsThe Rusty Suns were formed in April 2013 when former Holloways front man Alfie, crossed paths with talented musician Tom. The pair wrote and performed acoustically at first but they soon won over bassist Alfredo and drummer Simon. The band pump out infuriatingly catchy melodies, foot stomping rhythms and thoughtful lyrics. The many influences and sounds combine and the end product needs quite a description… rockabilly, upbeat folk, rousing English trad songs, heavy indie riffs… it all seems very natural together somehow.Think Simon & Garfunkel meets Chas ‘n’ Dave !
Yan Yates & The Two Dollar Hookers
The gypsies have come to town! Originally from Middlesborough Yan has honed his stomping folk sound all around the world and particularly in Camden. With his brand new band he’s expanded his soundscape to devastating effect.
With his hauntingly beautiful voice and virtuoso picking style George has become a much sought after figure on the British music scene and has supported such prestigious acts as Daughter, The Magic Numbers, Foy Vance and Dry The River. He supported Frank Turner all around the UK on his last sold out tour by personal invitation.
Fi McCluskyFormer lead singer of festival favourites Blame Hubert, Fi’s belter of a voice is about to be unleashed on the hotly tipped floor filler “All Gone” by Josh Caffe on New York’s impossibly hip Get Up Recordings label.
Catch this intimate acoustic performance ahead of performances at Glastonbury and Barefoot festivals.
Managed by chart topping, Food Records running, music guru Andy Ross (yes him again), blues guitar virtuoso Archie has had a busy year performing at various festivals (Boardmasters, Secret Garden Party etc.) before going off on a sold out winter European tour at the personal invitation of Keziah Jones. He is gearing up for another busy Summer by recording a solo album with legendary producer Paul Tipler (Elastica, Idlewild, Charlatans, 80s Mtchbox, etc.), co-writing an album with Linda Harrison and er… playing this gig!
