The name behind a disparate crew of rule-breaking musical magic-makers such as Mark Lanegan, St. Etienne, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, and The Orielles, Heavenly Recordings have been inspiring obsessive fandom for three decades, playing a massive role in shaping Britains alternative cultural landscape. Rising from the ashes of the acid house explosion, Heavenly Recordings wears its outsider status like a badge of honour, taking joy in building an eclectic roster that’s banded together by a shared warmth and progressive ethos. This year, they’ll be weaving sonic sorcery through the pews of St. Phillips church – so get ready to meet your new musical obsession, because we’re pretty sure that’s where you’ll find it.
Since Strange Days hit the Mancunian music scene, they’ve made their mark by debuting acts including King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Nick Waterhouse, The Murlocs and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. It goes without saying those are some pretty impressive credentials – so when these young tastemakers join forces with the legendary Heavenly Recordings in May, it’s a safe bet to expect something special.
