Junior Bill

After four years the Globe welcomes back Junior Bill for what we are sure will be another memorable evening of music and dancing. Honed in their local youth club, Junior Bill's streetwise sound brings together the disparate influences of frontman and songwriter Rob Nichols ,from Lee Scratch Perry to Caetano Veloso. The set is peppered with catchy, astute and socially aware pop songs that nod to the likes of Elvis Costello, Pete Doherty and Jamie T. Their upcoming album, Youth Club! is a nostalgic paean to the places where the band spent their teens and were given the space to develop as musicians. Its blend of hi life, calypso, latin, reggae and soul forms a colourful backdrop to Rob's social commentary. As a live band, however, they become a blood and guts four piece, spitting witticisms into the mics with soulful joy and intensity. 

Danny Goffey (Supergrass) - "One of my favourite bands is Junior Bill, who touch on a sound that is not heard any more"

Tom Robinson (6 Music) - "Everybody's talking about Junior Bill. A real grass-roots sound, instantly"

The Songs of Leonard Cohen

8pm  Tickets £14.00

Each Song stripped back, desolate, naked and sensual

Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter Leonard Cohen was an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, wry humour and the courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty with the stroke of each line.With a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and an undying love of the ‘pure song’ Keith James gives you a concert of Cohen’s amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way imaginable, exposing the solitary inner strength of his greatest songs in their original perfect form.Keith has performed an extensive tour of this concert in Theatres and Arts Centres across the UK, giving over 500 concerts – close to 150,000 people. This has proved to be one of the greatest honours in Keith James’ 40 year career. Keith lives in Herefordshire, Scotland and sometimes in Andalusia, Spain.

‘Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’ The Independent

Once Upon A Tomorrow…/Un Tro Yfory… Surrealism in Wales

At the thirteenth stroke of midnight the Celtic Eye surveys the land of the insurgent Rebecca….
Creating new myths and memories, we surrealists in Wales are ‘specialists in revolt’ (André Breton, 1924) who seek merely to re-enchant the world and make it anew. We proclaim our rejection of the stultifying dead hand of the reality principle and hurl our barbs at the Society of the Spectacle, at a life not lived and one categorised by Miserabilism, alienation and the suppression of the human spirit. It will, therefore, be no surprise that we embroider our banner with André Breton’s favourite dictum, ‘ni dieu ni maître’ (No God No Master) (Arcane 17). Echoing Rimbaud’s call to ‘Change Life’ and Marx’s to ‘Change the World’, for us the emancipation of the imagination and humanity’s social emancipation are one and the same! We enthusiastically endorse Michael Löwy’s assertion that, ‘…surrealism is an adventure that is at once intellectual and passionate, political and magical, poetic and dream like’ (Morning Star: Surrealism, Marxism, Anarchism, Situationism, Utopia 2009). Interested, or simply nothing better to do? Then why not throw caution to the wind, remove the tiles from your head and join us for a surreal day on 30 April including:
 An exhibition of Surrealist paintings, collages and photographs by members of the Welsh Tribe of Surrealists
 A discussion of the origins of Surrealism, its key tenets & contemporary relevance - Surrealism is Dead, Long Live Surrealism!
 For those who thought Surrealism was only to do with melted clocks, why not try a bit of Dragon in your surrealist soup and hear about the incredible story of Surrealism in Wales
 Surrealism & Cinema – In this session, we will talk about how Surrealists have made use of film, what is meant by ‘convulsive cinema’ and then turn the lights down and show some recent
 To round off events, in our evening session, Beyond the Limits of Reason: Surrealist Poetry, we will be sharing recent and historic poetic texts with an opportunity for Q&A
