The Winachi Tribe Unveil New Video Starring Keith Allen

Rum Thief
Reach For the Weatherman
27 July 2015

Lead Tracks: Stitch in Time & Dirty Shoes


Rum Thief is solo artist Jot Green with support from his band,  based in Chorlton, Manchester. The project began when Green, after playing as a drummer in bands for over ten years, decided to record some songs of his own. Booking into Airtight studio in Chorlton, Manchester he performed the drums, guitars, vocals and backing vocals to produce his first EP 'Clouded Mind'. The titular lead track generated interest from media outlets across the north west and with the help of ex band mates and a new live drummer, Rum Thief secured some local gigs, festivals, support slots and airplay on local and national radio. 'Reach For The Weather Man' is Rum Thief's second EP and is characterised by Jot Green's keen ear for melody and his sharp observational lyrical content.
 
 
The Band:
Jot Green (Vocals, guitars, drums on studio tracks)
Johnny Brown (Lead guitar - live)
Iain McGowen (Bass - live)
Chris Hobs (Drums - live)
 
 
"In Rum Thief Manchester surely has one of the biggest talents in the UK at the moment and after the amazing 'Clouded Mind EP', they are back and keeping momentum going with debut single 'Dirty Shoes'"
Emerging North                            
 

"From the sharp, lyrical mind of Jot Green comes alter ego, ‘Rum Thief’ – an artist whose fresh garage sound captures the true essence of Manchester grit and attitude."
Pure FM's Sonic Bandwagon Show, Stockport

The Winachi Tribe
Time For Love
A1(M) Records
20 July 2015
The psychedelic funk of George Clinton, the brooding menace of Massive Attack, the rolling hypnotic beats of Happy Mondays and the vision and flow of Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five are all essential ingredients to the sound and style of The Winachi Tribe, a sonic soul, electro funk collective who are unconstrained by boundaries or formulas, musically or culturally.

Although 'Time For Love' is The Winachi Tribe's debut release, individual band members are already well established on the music scene. Percussion legend Inder Goldfinger was a member of Ian Brown's band for thirteen years, and vocalist Liam and keys player Antony collaborated with Keith Allen in the studio and also toured with him as vocalists in his band 'Fit Les' as part of his Olympic opera 'Will Cliff Be There?'

'Time For Love' b-side 'Plant The Seed', which features Julie Gordon (Happy Mondays / S.W.R), has been chosen to feature in an upcoming feature length documentary about legendary night club The Hacienda. Titled 'Do You Own The Dancefloor?' the film premieres at Glastonbury Festival's Groovy Movie Cinema Tent on Saturday 27th June at 6pm.

The Winachi Tribe's influences are as diverse as their own musical output. Parliament/Funkadelic and Sly & The Family Stone sit alongside The Happy Mondays, Primal Scream, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, creating a melting pot of references that create a truly individual sound.
Vocalist Liam says "You can hear different influences in our music and maybe take a guess as to what we were listening to when we wrote a certain song, but you can't really pin us down into any specific genre. One thing that ties all our music together though is us. Our stamp is all over it. Wether it's an electro-funk track, an acid house inspired track or a stripped down acoustic song you know it's us by the feel and the attitude of what you're hearing."

The video to accompany 'Time For Love' stars Keith Allen playing an older version of vocalist Liam. Also making a cameo is lead singer of Alabama 3, The Rev D. Wayne Love as the DJ at the club. "We had a lot of fun making the video" Liam says . "I hope that comes across when people watch it. I think it captures the feel of the song perfectly."

Horns come courtesy of Tim Hutton (Ian Brown / The Prodigy). The tracks were mixed by LC Coleman, produced by The Winachi Tribe and mastered at Abbey Road by Geoff Pesche.

The Pinstripe Pigeon Band
Sound Asleep EP
3 August 2015

The Pinstripe Pigeon Band began as a modest, yet ambitious studio project, incorporating production values inspired by Jon Hopkins, Nile Rogers and Cut Chemist, but this quickly developed into a seven-strong pop force, releasing five well-received EPs throughout 2013/14.?

The band's latest material?showcases intelligent sophisti-pop, electronica, funkadelia and anthemic rock. The lyrics lovingly articulate personal experiences while finding humour in political and social despair. Kirsty's impassioned vocals hark back to Aretha at her most bombastic and Dusty at her most delicate.

Collectively, the band soak up songcraft and live influences from Fleetwood Mac, The Band, The Beatles, Ryan Adams, Motown, Chic, John Coltrane, The E Street Band and Ben Harper.

The band has the benefit of two keyboardists, one melodically inventive Stevie Wonder/Oscar Peterson-esqe pianist and another more classical, akin to?Ludvico Einaudi, both complimenting each other perfectly.
The energised live show is characterised by rousing intent, hitting a resonant chord with each new audience. The band grabbed the attention of local media with BBC Introducing Lancashire showcasing a live radio session and BBC Cumbria playing a live recording of the group at Carlisle Music City.

Live sets at The Ferret, 53 Degrees and Night & Day left a lasting impression in Preston and Manchester, and last August The Pinstripe Pigeon Band smashed it at Kendal Calling's Woodland Stage with new fans and old describing their set as one of the festival's highlights.

2015 will see the pop collective spreading its wings further afield, headlining Manchester’s The Castle and Liverpool's Lomax later in the year.
