21st Century low voiced Rock n Roll. Exploring narratives of overblown gestures, lottery wins and apprentice butchery. For fans of The Doors, Scott Walker, Anna Calvi, Elvis Presley and Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds.


.‘A powerhouse of a sexy swaggering mix of Big Star and Ziggy Stardust… this band has a terrific array of songs and put on an excellent live show’ – Brighton Source Magazine

‘Probably one of the most bloody exciting, fraught things we have witnessed in a very long time…Their eclectic take on glam-rock, merged with hooks and riffs galore gives them a signature sound that few bands have touched upon in recent times’ – Give it Back Magazine


This Party are a Brighton based indie pop band. Formed after a chance encounter at a Smiths tribute gig, they’ve spent the past year in the studio evolving their style.
With transatlantic influences and sharp basslines, there’s a dark intrigue to This Party’s otherwise melodic sound.

Rooster Cole @ Marwoods 25/03/2016

22/04/2016 By James McLarnon

Rooster ColeEx-Black Black Hills singer, Mark Aaron aka Rooster Cole has to be one of the best front-men in Brighton. He oozes charisma and has a serious baritone, that sounds like it’s coming from the same Pressley place as Nick Cave’s croon does. He’s so good that on the occasions that we’ve seen him without a band, signing to a backing track it hasn’t mattered. You can’t take your eyes off him and the sound coming from the stage is delightful.

As impressive are his song-writing chops, his concise, well structured tracks benefit from impressive hooks and big choruses, it could be described as orchestral pop n’roll. The man himself identifies with The Doors, Scott Walker, Anna Calvi, Elvis Presley and Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and we can’t find fault with any of that.

Mumdad&thekids similar to the headline act, have a smashing pop sensibility about them, though they choose to steer clear of the gloomier influences. On their accomplished records, they conjour images of early 70’s Bowie, as well as shades of two more recent Bowie acolytes, Suede and of Montreal.

Opening the show will be This Party who must probably have the perfect creation myth for a indie band in 2016, meeting at a Smiths tribute gig. To use The Smiths as a sole indicator of influence would be reductive. Their first track ‘Movie Nights’ released a couple of months ago has more than a hint of Blur’s poppier moments.
