THE TIN



In the face of mounting cuts to the Arts sector throughout the UK and disproportionately in areas outside of London, it’s essential that local spaces are protected and utilised, so that expression and ideas can reverberate throughout cities. That’s why it’s incredibly refreshing to hear about The Tin Music and Arts project in Coventry. Scattered around the city are some absolutely fantastic hubs of creativity that are really driving artistic change in the city and in this case, social change too. The Tin Music and Arts project is a recently created arts charity that operates from a unique setting in the city centre, situated in the canal basin, previously called Taylor Johns, but now known as The Tin. Serving as a multi-functional artistic space, it offers the chance for performers and artists to perfect their craft but also for a vast array of collaborative projects fuelling social change; working with people in the city from disadvantaged backgrounds and using arts based activities to impact the community.

I spoke to David Butler (He Is A Pegasus), who is behind Marketing and PR for The Tin and his answers perfectly capture the public importance of Arts Centres that can provide rich, dimensional opportunities that offer creative contributions towards helping to alleviate disadvantage and inequality, aswell as introducing innovative acts. This is a really exciting and important time to get involved with your local Arts Scene and Coventry has a lot to offer thanks to The Tin.

The Tin was formally known as Taylor Johns, what's the thinking behind the name change?

The story behind the name change is quite simple – The Tin Music and Arts is a newly formed charity which was launched at the beginning of August. As well as our cultural offer, much of what we did as Taylor John's was already charitable – working Coventry City Council, supporting adults who have experienced mental ill health, working on music projects with young NEETs (not in education, employment or training), working with adults with learning difficulties etc, the transition made sense. However, when becoming a Charity, you cannot use the name of a pre existing place or company, so The Tin Music and Arts was chosen by our new board of trustee as a homage to the now sadly closed Tin Angel. It's been a bit tough trying to get the word out that we are still operating, but under a different name, but at the same time, that's what makes this such an exciting project to be a part of – it's new and fresh and only going to get better.

Coventry doesn't always attract the most favourable reputation, but there's pockets of exciting artistic developments all around the city. Is The Tin committed to fostering local artists and helping to further Coventry's artistic scene?

Definitely. Coventry's local music scene is just as vibrant as it has always been, if you know where to look. Taylor John's was always a hub of musical activity and the MO of The Tin is exactly the same – showcasing the best local talent Coventry has on offer, and providing a platform for local artists to develop as artists or performers in a friendly, welcoming environment, whether that be through the excellent Open Mic Nights that run on Sundays or offering support slots for reputable touring musicians to local artists and bands. We also offer great rehearsal rooms, which are totally kitted out with a 5 piece drum kit, amps, and a PA system, so we're pretty committed to not only giving artists an opportunity to perform live, but we're also giving them the facilities to improve for a reasonable price.

What's different about your venue?

What's so unique about The Tin is that it is more than just a venue – behind the scenes The Tin is a community focused arts organisation. As well as frequently putting on a diverse range of nights, from folk legend Ed Askew to REVOLT club nights, The Tin is also an active community centre, committed to improving links and opportunities for underprivileged or disadvantaged people in Coventry through the arts. We have strong links with The Pod, which is a Coventry City Council resource for people that are striving to improve their mental health, through music and arts, and several members of our team offer high quality, affordable music lessons, from guitar to African drums and turntables. As well as a pro-active music scene, The Tin also hosts Tai Chi and Yoga classes twice a week, respectively, and Indian Kuchipudi dance classes every Wednesday. We also have an artist studio for two artists. One space is currently vacant but the other is occupied by Midlands based artist Stewart Easton. We have also invested in a silk screen printer and plan to rent that to local artists and eventually deliver tuition sessions. So it's a really vibrant, exciting project to be a part of, as it has so much more to give.

As someone who's performed at The Tin yourself, how did you find the crowd and general atmosphere whilst playing in comparison to other places around the city?

The atmosphere down here is fantastic – it hardly feels like work! From a performance perspective it's even better. The entire focus is on the music, so you're not struggling to be heard over shouting, drunken men, which is a recurring obstacle for many performers in venues throughout Coventry. From the very early days of the Tin Angel there has been a 'Shuuuush' policy (we once held a series of nights called that!). The fact that the bar and the performance area are separate really helps. Also, everybody is interested in what you're doing, whatever it is – The audiences down here understand how diverse music can be, they don't just operate on a Radio One spectrum of music, but are totally open minded to anything you want to do. As a seasoned musician, it's refreshing not to feel pressured to play songs that people will have heard on X Factor or on a John Lewis advert. If I were a musician that was just getting started with gigging, or nervous about performing in front of people, The Tin would be absolutely perfect, as it is such a warm, pressure free environment.

For people that have never been before, what kind of acts can they expect to hear/see?

The fact that I had to take a few minutes to try and narrow down what you can expect to see at The Tin is a perfect example of how much variation there is down here. We have a few regular nights like the Open Mic, which is on every Sunday, which is different every time, so it stays fresh and interesting. The most frequent type of music we cater for is probably folk – we have 60s folk legend Ed Askew here this Saturday - but it is in no way limited to that. For instance, we are hosting the Proxy Music nights every month from January which is a funk, soul and disco club night, and Catharsis, one of Coventry's only goth/industrial night. We tend to book acts on their way up – we had the fantastic John Smith here in 2007, and Caribou in 2008 – so although we are a small venue, we are still a place that well known and well respected artists are keen to perform at.

The venue was opened by Richard Guy, who continues to work closely with the new charity, but now focuses on running Tin Angel Records. The artists on the label see the venue as their home-from-home, most of them being from the US or Canada. When they tour there is always a 'home town' gig at the Tin. Most notably Devon Sproule who has reached the dizzy heights of performing on Later.... with Jools Holland.


Which acts should we be excited about in the near future at The Tin?

We have some great acts coming up for over the next few months or so, like local band Batsch on the 14th of December, and Ian Bland on the 9th of January. Looking further ahead, we have ex-Squeeze legend Nick Harper here on the 28th of February and up-and-coming alt-pop band Peggy Sue and Diane Cluck on the 8th and 15th of April, respectively. We are filling up our bookings diary fast though – so there will be much more on offer soon enough. Acts aside, there is a lot to be excited about at The Tin – we are a fresh, new and exciting project that is committed to making our Coventry community better, and providing a top quality music venue at the same time. It's a really exciting thing to be a part of. Taylor Johns was always one of my favourite venues, for the atmosphere, the people, the acts and the sound, and to be given the opportunity to play a role in preserving the venue for years to come is a really inspiring prospect, because there are not many places like The Tin left!

Thanks.

UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA

WOMAN'S HOUR


Enchanting vocals by Fiona Burgess create an incredibly assured sound from a relatively young band. 2011 gave us tracks such as 'Jenni' and 'Human', but Woman's Hour got introspective and have now returned with a more seamless, essential sound. Most recent tracks; 'Our Love Has No Rythm' is a beautifully stirring song with a wonderful layered arrangement, complemented by soaring vocals. 'To the End' manages to be simultaneously delicate but weighted, the use of texture really being shown off here. Expecting big things from this band, incredibly talented. Fantastic videos too.

First off, where are you in the world right now and what've you been working on?
Right now I am at our rehearsal space which is an old warehouse next to London Fields. It's a beautiful old Victorian building tucked away behind some houses. We are working on some new songs.

Could you give a brief history of Woman's Hour so far?
We've been together for a couple of years. We started with Fiona, Nick and myself quite aimlessly then Josh came on board and I think we all just enjoyed it so much that we wanted to do it more and more. So we did.

Who did you grow up listening to?
I suppose for me my first musical memories are from my parents records. Simon & Garfunkel, Crosby, Stills & Nash and Led Zeppelin where probably the best. Then the music that was on the radio at the time I suppose, Blur and Pulp were two of my favourites at the time. I was very young then. Interpol's first record was an important one for me at the time I seem to remember. Then I got into some 'weirder' things.

What would you say is the perfect environment or situation to listen to your music in?
On the top of Helvellyn after scrambling up Striding Edge. Or in a bubble bath with a delicious glass of champagne.

What's the strangest subject that's ever influenced a track?
That would be telling.

What other artists are you into at the moment?
Love the new Kurt Vile record and I think I read somewhere that the War on Drugs are recording a new one so that will be interesting after the resounding success of their last effort. Also the Hookworms one, that's great turned up loud. Instrumental Tourist by Tim Hecker & Dan Lopatin has been on repeat for a while as well.

Where would you love to tour?
Everywhere!

Finally, what's next for you, future plans and such?
Finish up some writing and start some more recording...

HE IS A PEGASUS


‘The Big Sleep’ is the solo project of David Butler, who performs under the name He Is A Pegasus and this stunning new e.p cements why neglecting your local music scene is exceedingly foolish. Manchester/Coventry based, He Is A Pegasus has been playing locally and impressing audiences for the last couple of years, with eclectic, thematic sets that prove his accomplished ability as a performer. ‘The Big Sleep’ showcases the versatility of David as an artist, with each track embodying the range of influences to be found in his music, offering something refreshing, interesting and inventive, rather than something vanilla that seems to replicate itself endlessly (Mumford and Sons ALERT).
The e.p begins with the beautiful, ‘The Big Sleep’, which lulls the listener with gentle rhythms and then gradually builds up to an unflinching, assured climax that eclipses the earlier romanticism. The lyrical composition exudes sentimentality and as a first track it succeeds in encapsulating the layering and deviations to be found throughout the rest of the e.p. ‘Spectre’ depicts a marked shift, creating thumping, sincere electronica that made me think of Hot Chip’s earlier material; it’s bold and shows off the musical proficiency possessed to be able to produce something so intricate and simultaneously arresting. And most importantly, it’s bloody catchy! ‘Atlas’ starts off raw and stripped back and it’s easy to note the quality of song writing and the lyrical nostalgia conveyed; ‘you can’t change my mind this time’ is crisp and devastating, leading to more roaring, anthem-like guitar sections. Personally I think this track would be the most awesome to see live, being able to fill a room with furious guitar sections and then momentarily returning to haunting, unaccompanied melodies. ‘Technicolour’ is a gorgeously crafted track that emphasises the tone of David’s voice –‘I’m just not used to things not fucking up’ seems ironic considering the quality of the song these words are incorporated into. 6 minute epic, ‘Terrapin’ is my favourite track, there are Bon Iver similarities within the whole e.p, but especially in this song, because of the level of innovation and strength of the vocal performance. It’s such a strong track to end the e.p on and leaves on an exhilarating note.
He Is A Pegasus gets the pacing and weighting spot on with this e.p and it’s a superb, confident effort from a musician with an abundance of talent.

TREE


Meet Oliver Nickell, a 19 year old producer who is based in San Francisco and crafting some of the most interesting music I've heard for a long time; it's truly experimental as you'll see when Oliver explains his musical process for the new album, 'Splitting Branches'. I first heard one of his tracks in 2011 when he teamed up with other JUSTBEAPERSON favourite, Beat Culture (check out last year's interview) and created 'Stuck Down the Wrong Rabbit Hole', which was a whimsical, ethereal effort that was incredibly assured. Bursting with talent, Tree will be big! Have a read of some of Oliver's musings about the new album and a quick Q&A, don't forget to listen to and download the album at the bottom of the page.

What Splitting Branches means to me: I wrote, recorded and produced Splitting Branches about a year ago while I was 17 and 18 years old with the help of a few friends. I was coming out of a heavy drug haze from high school in Santa Cruz and headed to a fresh start at college in San Francisco. During the year and a half of time that I was writing and creating this music, I left behind everything I knew and loved; all my friends, my family, the town and community I lived my entire life, even my ex-girlfriend of some 4 years who is ironically featured on half the tracks in this release. I made all this music during a time where I chose to completely split myself apart from everything I knew and loved, everything I called familiar. This is the documentation of that period.
75% of the sounds I recorded on Splitting Branches were made with either real instruments or homemade organic found sound sampling, consisting of anything lying around my house. I started making my music out of unconventional objects like my dad's grand father clock, a toaster, car seat belts, scissors, eggs, an air compressor, feedback, lots of gameboy haha, my coffee grinder, beer bottles, my little dog barking, and the list goes on and on. It was a ton of fun making this music and a very experimental process for myself as a song writer. I was stoked to have the chance to blend so many strange sounds together with so many different genres. Before I started Tree, I was in a band in middle school, and then a dubstep DJ and even in a little rap crew during high school. By my senior year of high school, when I started producing music as a laptop musician, I decided it was time to blend everything I knew together into one big project. Splitting Branches is the initial result. Some of the tracks I love, some of them I hate. It all depends on my mood and what side of the bed I woke up on. Finally I have detached myself from this art and am ready to share with the people of planet earth.


First off, where are you in the world right now and what've you been working on?
Im currently in San Francisco and the last year has mainly been dedicated to finishing Splitting Branches and mainly focusing on my Debut EP with Apollo / R&S Records. A few weeks ago I was in London working on one of the tracks in the studio, im still trying to finish it though, its been taking me for ever to get it right.

Could you give a brief history of your career as an artist so far?
I was in a band that played shows all throughout middle school. I was in a rap group in highschool then I switched over to being a dubstep. At the age of 17, I had already played shows alongside artists such as: Skrillex, Nero, Datsik, Zeds dead and many more in the dubstep scene. By 18, I spent the year redefining my sound, and I licensed music with MTV, moved to the SF to start the multidimensional art project "tree collaborations," as well as joining forces with European label R&S. Now Im 19 and Im finishing my debut EP set for june 2013.

Who did you grow up listening to?
the gorillaz, Nas, Binary Star, TV on the Radio, flying lotus, & nosaj thing

What would you say was the perfect environment or situation to listen to your music in?
Up in the tallest tree you can find!

What's the strangest subject you've written a song about?
Probably some old raps I wrote about fighting police officers while I smoked crack.

What other artists are you into at the moment?
Some of my homies: Synkro, Submerse, Mist Glider, Aeropsia, Nutrik, kasket and Docko

Where would you love to tour?
My game plan is to hit every continent in the next 7 years.

Finally, what's next for you, future plans and such?
The Spltting Branches Remix Compilation comes out for free in April. Its pretty awesome I got some incredible producers from around the world to each remix a different track from the release. Then my Debut EP will be out on vinyl and itunes in june. Got a few new videos for that release!
Also I started writing my debut Album right now, Really stoked to finally be working on new art!
