Green Mind presents GALLON DRUNK + Long Bone Trio ***POSTPONED***

Tuesday May 22nd 2012 @ The Portland Arms - £10 adv

NEW DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY.

http://www.gallondrunk.com
GALLON DRUNK, formed by James Johnston, Michael Delanian, and Joe Byfield, first erupted onto the London gig circuit in 1990 and wasted little time becoming one of the capital's most essential live propositions,with a succession of startling and abrasive singles, including the classic SOME FOOL'S MESS, all reaching the top of the independent charts.

Throughout their entire career, every single GALLON DRUNK have released has achieved Single Of The Week in either the NME or MELODY MAKER. A trio of unique and pioneering albums, YOU, THE NIGHT...AND THE MUSIC (1992), TONITE, THE SINGLES BAR(1992) and the Mercury Prize-nominated FROM THE HEART OF TOWN (1993) followed, cementing GALLON DRUNK'S burgeoning reputation as one of Britain's truly uncompromising bands.

In spring 1994, JOHNSTON was approached by NICK CAVE to play guitar for the BAD SEEDS during their Lollapalooza tour. Johnston's continuing links with Cave have saw him contribute to several songs and eventually join NICK CAVE THE BAD SEEDS in 2003.

1995 ended with the release of the TRAITOR'S GATE EP on their own GALLON DRUNK RECORDS. GALLON DRUNK commenced recording a fourth album for their new label CITY SLANG. Without tempering their incendiary approach towards creating music which first forged their reputation as a unique and daring band, IN THE LONG STILL NIGHT (1997) was their most accessible and fully realised album. Figuring highly in many music press end-of-year polls, IN THE LONG STILL NIGHT led Q's David Roberts to suggest that "the band's collision of funk, punk and skewiff jazz emerge as the perfect soundtrack for the committing of terrible crimes of passion" GALLON DRUNK'S latest album"FIRE MUSIC" was released in 2003, and 2005 saw the release of the brilliant collection "Bear Me Away", a double cd set. The band are currently recording a new LP to be released in Autumn 2011.

The current lineup is James Johnston, Terry Edwards, and Ian White.
