Nail Holiday and Simon Mills, AKA Bent make a welcome return to the stage after a two year sabbatical at the newly refurbished Garage venue on July 22nd to celebrate what promises to be the retrospective album of the summer, their highly anticipated ‘Best Of Bent’ due for release on July 20th. The band will be debuting some new tracks off the album and of course will drop in a few of their classics songs to satiate their devoted and loyal fan base. A mouth watering prospect indeed! Not wishing to rest on their laurels, the boys have insisted on making this a real party by inviting some of their mates to join them including the one and only Sister Bliss (Faithless), Mighty Mouse and a special live support act to be announced shortly!
Bent background: Spanning the career of one of the UK’s most influential artists – famous for hits such as Always, I Love My Man, Swollen, Magic Love and To Be Loved, it respectfully nods to their past, present and future – further proof why Bent remain not just important to the development of UK electronica, but to contemporary music altogether.
Celebrating 10 years and 4 critically acclaimed albums - the last being 2006’s mould breaking ‘Intercept’ - Bent celebrate this musical milestone by including a second CD of new unreleased material which the band have been working on to give a taster of what’s to come when they begin work on their fifth studio album in January 2010 - a new vision for the scene that the band were pivotal in shaping.
As one of the founding members of Faithless, Sister Bliss became one of Britain's most popular figures in the electronica scene. What many might not realize is her incredible history as a musician and DJ before that point. She started DJing in 1987, acting as one of the few female house DJs in Britain at the time. She appeared at many popular clubs in the country, including Cream, the Gallery, and the Ministry of Sound, and began to play internationally as well before she joined up with Rollo to form Faithless in 1995. It’s a real treat to have her on the bill.
London based Mighty Mouse began working together in November 2008, their first remix of City Reverb’s ‘Time Side On’ has received massive support from Aeroplane, Unabombers, Tom Middleton, Trevor Jackson, Babyshambles DJ’s and was played by Aeroplane on Pete Tong’s Essential selection on Radio 1. Their electronic disco sound has drawn interest from a host of labels and remix offers are flooding in from all corners of the globe.
