Courtesans

Courtesans are special guests to the Flint, Michigan alternative metal group on all 10 UK dates of their ‘La Petite Mort or a Conversation with God’ tour.

“King 810 are one of not many bands around who embrace the idea of transcending genres.

We feel we follow the same non-conformist and somewhat experimental path which in theory makes us a positive match. What we do have in common is musical and lyrical darkness that comes from our genuine life experiences.

We are very much looking forward to immersing ourselves in moral and philosophical tar with King 810.” – Sinead, Saffire, Agnes, and Vikki (The Courtesans).

Fellow “ones to watch” UK alt metal group Death Blooms have been confirmed as support for Birmingham, Manchester, and London shows.

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
