Frankie Goes To Hollywood guitarist FREE gig!

Ian McNabb (Icicle Works) and Goldheart Assembly headline a free Save BBC6 gig at 93 Feet East on May 4th. If you can’t make the gig you can listen live online at www.tourdates.co.uk/save6

Joining Ian onstage will be Frankie Goes to Hollywood guitarist Brian Nash to perform some excluive songs. The evening features eight fantastic acts who have featured on the station over the last year including I Like Trains, RedTrack, We Rock Like Girls Dont, Shabby Rogue, Isa & The Filthy Tongues and Alexander Price.

Hosting the evening will be Andrew Harrison from The Word magazine and the gig is designed to show solidarity, artist support and raise awareness for people to write in to protest against the decision to ditch BBC6. The gig is also a thank you from the artist / bands for showcasing their music and is probably the best gig in town that night!

Headliner Ian McNabb is a passionate supporter and says “6Music needs to stay open because it is the only station in the UK that mixes up music by the minute. You’ll hear Goldheart Assembly into a John Peel session version of an Orange Juice tune and then Communication Breakdown by Led Zeppelin. I mean come on, who else does that? Also…a rare thing, the DJ’s actually know something about music and realize we’re there to hear music – not how quickly frogs spawn or what film premiere they’re attending tonight.”

Shaun Litton from Shabby Rogue echo’s fellow musicians feeling to the news when he says “It is vital that the BBC continue to provide Radio 6 , not only it is free of drab playlist’s , it gives unsigned bands am important outlet for their music . Anyone who cares about music in this country should be worried if it closes ” His sentiments are backed up by We Rock Like Girls Dont who say ‘6 Music is the only BBC radio station for discerning, non mainsteam listeners of all ages. We Rock Like Girls Don’t both listen to and appreciate the support of 6 Music in playing our music. Without it the opportunites for alternative UK bands to reach a national audience -the way John Peel’s show used to do – will be diminished futher.’
