RNW Music presents Chuck Mosley @ Hootananny
Sep 25 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm

 

 

 

Former Faith No More, Bad Brains and Cement vocalist Chuck Mosley comes to Mad Hatters, Inverness on Sunday Sept. 25th as part of his UK Introduce Yourself Tour.

The singer says he’s most looking forward to returning to the UK and mainland Europe. He adds: “I’ve always been a groupie of England and Europe, but the people are really nice. When you go to London it’s kinda
like L.A or New York, but I like it up North and Scotland. I just love it out there.

“I haven’t been out there in a long time and I can’t wait. No offence to America, it’s not the fans, or the kids, it’s just the distances between shows.”

Mosley is best known for joining Faith No More in 1985 and fronting the band for debut album We Care A Lot and follow-up Introduce Yourself. He was replaced by Mike Patton in 1988, but the pair shared vocal duties at a show in New York in 2010.

The tour is Chuck and a percussionist performing a set of acoustic songs from his back catalog (Faith No More, Bad brains, Cement, VUA & new stuff) whilst telling stories/answering questions/bad jokes.

Support comes from Dr. Wook

The Filthy Tongues @ Hootananny
Sep 30 @ 9:30 pm – Oct 1 @ 3:00 am

For those uninitiated in the ways of the Tongues, here’s a brief crash course in their intriguing history

The core members of the band – Martin Metcalfe on vocals and guitar, Derek Kelly on drums and Fin Wilson on bass guitar – have been making music together since the 80’s.

In a colourful career they’ve worked and toured with Blondie, The Ramones, Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, Vic Chesnutt, New York Dolls, Big Audio Dynamite, Aztec Camera and many more.

In the late 80’s and early 90’s Goodbye Mr MacKenzie were on the cusp of big things in the UK and Europe before record company wrangles, and a shift in direction, saw them morph into Angelfish, tour the States extensively and bring the singing talents of Shirley Manson to the fore.

With Manson then moving on and going global with Garbage, Metcalfe & Co returned to the UK and recorded further albums in their former guise before forming Isa & The Filthy Tongues, releasing another two fine bodies of stark and enthralling work, Addiction and Dark Passenger, both of which received five star reviews.

The band also wrote music for Richard Jobson’s film New Town Killers and their track Big Star featured on the soundtrack to David MacKenzie’s Hollywood film Spread.

Over the years critics have recognised The Pixies, Echo and the Bunnymen, Joy Division, Nick Cave and Scott Walker influences, and other plumbers of the murky musical depths, but the style of this ever evolving band remains strikingly and individually their own.

This could well be their finest material yet . . .

Irie Yo-Yo @ Hootananny
Oct 1 @ 9:30 pm – Oct 2 @ 3:00 am

Irie Yo-Yo are a Ska/Reggae band from Edinburgh. They debuted on the Edinburgh music scene in 2015 at the Edinburgh food festival and since then they have appeared at venues such as Mash House, Cabaret Voltaire, Stramash and many more. In August 2015 Irie secured multiple residencies and played numerous gigs during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

With inspiration from artists such as Desmond Dekker, Max Romeo, The Specials, Manu Chao and Gentleman, Irie Yo-Yo has developed a very full and soulful ska sound. From the 4 part vocal harmonies, to the succulent sound of the brass section this band is right where it needs to be.
