The Great Malarkey

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is The Great Malarkey.

Releasing their second album in early 2017 on Batov Records, ‘Doghouse’ delivers not only the continued raucous energy of their live shows, as showcased in their first album ‘Badly Stuffed Animals’, but the eventual bruising, vulnerability of the morning after the night before.

Influenced by the likes of Tom Waits, The Pogues, Beirut, Nick Cave, Fanfare Ciocarlia, The Dead Brothers and Toots and the Maytals (the latter of whom they supported with only their third gig), The Great Malarkey are riotous mix of musical styles and genres delivered in a “multicultural train of fast beats and trembling slams of punk-folk spirit” –

Drawing on their experience of over eight years of extensive touring, with shows at Bestival (UK), the London Olympics, Boomtown (UK), Colours of Ostrava (CZ), Tønder Festival (DK), to name but a few, and mainstream airplay in both the UK and Denmark, The Great Malarkey continue to delight audiences across the UK and Europe with their explosive, “balls to the wall”, high energy live shows. In February 2019, “Gimme Sugar” from “Doghouse” was chosen by Tom Robinson as BBC 6 Music recommends track of the week, getting played by daytime DJs Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq and Mary-Anne Hobbs.

The Great Malarkey do not disappoint. They bring their whole heart to every song, every show, every album and anyone who wants to listen.

Year Of The Dog

Smashing the festival, radio, and TV circuits alike, the new brass-house-soul sound from Cardiff and Bristol are selling out gigs and rising fast.

Having built a reputation as one of the most unforgettable dance inducing live bands on the underground scene, Year of the Dog have blasted the main stages at festivals including Noz Stock, Cheltenham Jazz, Cardiff Pride, Big Cwtch and have been interviewed by BBC Radio stations across the country.

The six-piece who formed at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2018 are also recognised for their star appearance as Swing Band in Netflix’s smash hit series, Sex Education, performing their original tune Run These Streets in series 1, ep 3.
