"Head of Light Entertainment at The Home of Unpopular Music!




HEAD OF LIGHT ENTERTAINMENT are an unusual, hard to pigeon-hole, four piece alternative pop band from Teesside. Often labelled “quirky” or “off-beat”, the band’s sound could be more accurately described as a modern, scratchier, take on 1970’s art rock. Their chief touchstone is SPARKS, and there are elements of the Mael brothers in both their musical output and live performance. Originally just a one man outfit consisting of ex-RCA Records recording artist Carl Green, the quartet version of HOLE have been together for five years, and is considered the definitive line-up: Carl (vocals, guitar), Simone Silivistris (vocals, keyboards), John Taylor (bass) and Graeme Boynton (drums and percussion).

Their first two albums- “I Am Liberated” (2009) and “The English Don’t Care” (2012)- laid the dreamy foundations for their most recent and strongest release “Drool”, which came out May 2017. Music from all three albums has attracted regular radio play from band champions like Bob Fischer at BBC Tees and Tom Robinson at BBC6 Music, and garnered various enthusiastic blog and press reviews. The band are a fascinating live act, blending bravado with gaucheness to memorable effect, and spawning a devoted set of ultra loyal, cross-generational fans. Regulars on both the North East and London gig circuits, HOLE have played some of the UK’s most iconic small venues, including The Dublin Castle and Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen (London), Eagle Inn (Manchester), Fibbers (York), 02 Academy, The Cluny and Think Tank (Newcastle), and Georgian Theatre (Stockton). Festival credits include Willow Man, Twisterella, Richmond Live and NARC Fest. New album "Drool"

+ support from STEVE PLEDGER - incredibly talented song writer who we are delighted to welcome back for his third appearance at Toft House.

Preparations are well underway for the Scottish Real Ale Festival 2018 which will be held at the Corn Exchange in Edinburgh from Thursday 5th to Saturday 7th July. This is your chance to sample from amongst over 170 different beers from the widest selection of Scottish and Northern Ireland breweries you are going to find together in one space this year. Our beer and brewing scene is thriving at the moment and there is so much to try. It’s a golden opportunity to try out beer styles you might not be used to, or to track down that brewery you’ve heard good things about but never found. The quality will also be spot on if past years are to go by – you can be confident you are trying the beer as it’s meant to taste. There will also be a cider bar and wines will be available. The Champion Beer of Scotland 2018 will be announced at the festival but in addition festival visitors will have the opportunity to nominate their own Beer of the Festival and enter a prize draw for a festival goody bag. CAMRA members have reduced price entry to the festival at £4 (as opposed to £6 for non-members) This includes a festival glass and a programme, with comprehensive tasting notes. We need as many CAMRA members as possible attending to ensure a successful festival, so we hope you can join us – it would be great to see you!
