Mark Sultan/BBQ
Mark Sultan is BBQ. And BBQ is Mark Sultan is BBQ. Get it? Good.
The Man With The Golden Voice is back again.
He started with the unfortunate moniker (BBQ) in 2000, playing shows as a one-man band at parties and for friends, releasing a few 45s and a couple of LPs in the US and in Europe. And then he formed ‘The King Khan & BBQ Show’ with pal King Khan in 2003. A few years later, he reverted back to the name Mark Sultan to cut records on In The Red Records. It was a way to make ‘full band’ sounds without misleading fans.

There is a glut of one-man acts in the world today, egged on by the new ‘I can do anything I want, even if I can’t actually do it’ attitude of today. But Mark Sultan, BBQ, has something most no not have and cannot do: great songs, the ability to sound like a full band, a very deep understanding of rock n roll, and what is often cited as one of THE best voices today.

Mark is thought to be – for better or worse – ground zero when it comes to doo-wop infused garage rock in modern times. The latest album only touches upon this briefly, with far more nods to mid-60s moody sounds done in his inimitable style. His live show is a surreal non-stoo, mildly improvised romp through decades of sounds, combined with over-the-top energy and sexual/violent overtones.

We all know Falmouth churns out killer bands like there's no tomorrow and Tinnedfruit are just another example of this.

Tinned Fruit are a 3-piece garage rock/fuzz pop band from Falmouth made up of Dan Ledley (bass and vox), Danny Withers (guitar and vox) and Alex Smith (drums and vox). With a love for Marc Bolan and Ty Segall their songwriting and live shows are energetic, loud and drenched in a thick blanket of fuzz.

This incarnation dishes out twisted fuzzy garage punk, with menacing riffs to lose your shit to with no holding back.
