On demand Bonanza & Son on ResonanceFM

Last weeks show has been uploaded to Soundcloud for your listen again pleasure.

Bonanza & Son on ResonanceFM
Wednesday 15th October 2014 4:30pm (UK Time)

Live session & interview with Harry Mundy:
Harry Mundy’s reputation precedes him but it's not surprising when you consider that he recorded his debut album with Ryan Adams band The Cardinals in the heart of Nashville no less and then promptly received a five star review in Maverick Magazine who described it as a 'steel guitar dominated Country sound… his own distinctive take with well-written songs that explore the age-old Country subjects of heartbreak, drink, unrequited love and loneliness. Pathos with his impassioned voice and some Bluesy harmonica, most impressive.’
A welcome return to the ResonanceFM studio but this time a rare and intimate solo performance from one of London’s most promising practitioners of Americana music.
Following the show tonight Harry will perform at the launch of his new EP 'Back To The Country' hosted by Communion Records at The Sebright Arms in Bethnal Green with a DJ set from Bonanza & Son... The EP is Harry's finest work to date and even features artwork by Daniel Romano. Wear shades for sure!

TONIGHT IN LONDON


Last call to all Americana, Country and Roots music fans...

TONIGHT at The Phoenix, Cavendish Square, Oxford Circus, London.

An amazing line-up...

Oh!Gunquit
Lewis Floyd Henry
The Tender Hips
+ DJ Rob Morgan
+Bonanza & Son DJs

FREE ENTRY from 7pm

Bonanza & Son on Resonance 104.4fm are very proud to be working with the newly refurbished Phoenix, Cavendish Square.. Come to the launch night it's free this Saturday...

Saturday 13th September 2014
Bonanza & Son on ResonanceFM Presents.

Live acts:
Oh!Gunquit
North London exotic 4 piece who almost defy classification with their sexy, trashy rock'n'roll. Tribal, Jungle tom toms beat wildly and twangy Link Wray guitars surround the high-spirited female lead vocals that roar and purr, plus seedy tenor sax wails for that added sumptuous slice of exotica.

Bizarre songs about Tigers, Cherries, and Killers were recorded in the bands’ cellar by crazy band members Tina Bopper, Si-Borg, Dr Zoom, VV, Lexonie & Birdman.

These Neo-surf garage rockers bring back the sexiness of the B-52’s, The Cramps, with some Link Wray & ESG thrown in for good measure.

Things are really taking off for these guys since they recently got back from some USA dates having just finished recording their debut album at Gizzard Analogue Studio & a first Single from this to be released on none other than the mighty One Little Indian Records on 1st DEC' 2014.

Lewis Floyd Henry:
Compared to Jimi Hendrix in both sound and appearance, longtime busker Lewis Floyd Henry's unique one-man band brand of psychedelic blues-rock and Americana eventually transcended the tube stations and city streets where he spent seven years playing.

Lewisham born Henry first became a graffiti artist (and as such was the subject of a documentary, Story of Known), before studying art at the prestigious Central St. Martin's College.

Inspired by the likes of Pantera and Black Sabbath rather than the Hip-Hop scene he grew up around, he began experimenting with a lo-fi sound, which he honed while performing on the likes of London's Portobello Road and Tottenham Court Road. Armed with a guitar, tambourine, harmonica, and children's drum kit, his inventive renditions of Wu-Tang Clan's "Protect Ya Neck" soon made him the talk of the town, and led to him being signed by indie label Adjust in 2010. After performing at Glastonbury, the Big Chill, and Latitude festivals a couple of years ago he released his debut album, 'One Man & His 30W Pram', named after his habit of transporting his instruments in a vintage baby pram. Now he's back with a storming brand new LP 'Across The Thames' and we can't wait to hear the new songs live this Saturday.

The Tender Hips:
Possessors of dark, Alt-Country hearts as worn on their best Western sleeves replete with the shiniest Country-pop hooks and the finest of Byrdsian harmonies that even Gram Parsons would be jealous of. Also reminiscent of REM's finest moments whilst riding on horseback with upbeat Townes Van Zandt... We predict big things for these stalwarts of Americana.
