23rd June 2018
7.30pm - 11pm
With support from Piney Gir.
For nearly two decades with Supergrass, Gaz Coombes came to embody the oddball end of British indie and Britpop. But it is through his solo work that he has found himself.
With World’s Strongest Man, Coombes brings that solo self into dazzling definition. There’s more space and light in the music, which takes its motorik drive from krautrock (first single, Deep Pockets, is surreal night-time car journey) and its subtle soundscapes from introspective West Coast hip hop. Lyrically, he points the searchlight inwards to explore what it means to be free and doing life on your own terms. But this is an album more outgoing than its predecessor – with a greater variety of moods than we’ve heard from him before.
