She Said: Local Heroes Go Wild On The Prairie

Brighton favourites She Said! return to Komedia with yet more alt-country noir, rock-a-billy moments, gongs, and the odd explosion!
She Said!: Get You All Of A Shiver!

Like Nick Cave and Johnny Cash riding wild horses at high speed across the prairie, She Said!'s music is seemingly untainted by modern music and yet totally contemporary, with intense vocals that will send shivers down your spine.

Singer Dominque Noiret, with help from Long Tall Texan and Hotknives star Marc Carew on double bass, Matt Windler on guitar and Mike Kelly on drums, invites you to join her for an evening on the darkside.


'Singer Dominique Noiret possesses one of those voices that seems to stir up just about every emotion possible' - XFM


Moving to Brighton eight years ago to study photography, Dominique met the musicians that eventually became her full-time backing band, producing their own unique take on country and jazz with a distinct contemporary feel.

Currently working on a new release which embraces influences from Jeff Buckley to Nick Cave, last year Dominique landed a female lead in an arthouse movie called Road To Nod featuring Switzerland's funeral band The Dead Brothers - proving she has more than one string to her bow! Past shows at Komedia have been sell-outs, so don't miss this!


SHE SAID! visit Komedia on Friday 9 February at 9pm.

Tickets are £8 and are available without a booking fee on-line at www.komedia.co.uk/brighton or from the Box Office on 01273 647100.

As the frontman of both Cave Painting and Company, Sad Funeral's new single Kazbeg is hallmarked with Brighton musician Adam Kane's distinctive vocal flutter, yet finds him venturing into richly textured, mellow natured and deeply dreamy new territory as a songwriter. 

"I've been waiting this out,” says Wendy James, one-time fearless front woman of chart-topping alt-rockers Transvision Vamp, “always optimistic that Covid-19 dissolution might take less time than forecasted... but not so!"

Moy wrote and recorded second single No Talk's The Best Chat at the height of lockdown. Separated from his regular band, he discovered that collaborating on the track remotely was an unorthodox creative method given the live energy that's usually key to their work together.

Creature Creature can, via the imminent release of their first collection of self-penned tracks, Two Finger Tantrum, be labelled the new flag bearers of rock. The Brighton-based five piece have furrowed a new burrow at the summit of an age old genre. With this debut album they will be looking over their shoulders at the also-rans for many years to come.

On Sunset, Paul Weller's fifteenth solo album, which drops this Friday, sees one of the UK's most successful songwriters barely affected by the present situation that has placed the music industry, as much as the wider economy, largely on pause: “I haven't really been bothered by the lockdown, other than having to queue for food or medicine.”
