Little Comets // AllSaints Basement Sessions

***Advertorial***

ANBAD is more than willing to champion anyone who also champions new music, especially when it’s an initiative that is not only enjoyable but also explores the music world to a little more depth than usual: providing musical Edutainment, if you’ll allow such heinous terminology into your life.

That closer peep into new music is to be found in the AllSaints Basement Sessions – a minor treasure trove of videoed live performances from new bands; lectures and discussion groups on new music; and, perhaps most interestingly, interviews with musical movers-and-shakers that are bold enough to progress beyond the usual yadda-yadda single-plugging.

The in-depth interviews are conducted by a man called Christopher Tubbs, who (if you squint) looks a bit like Zane Lowe; so as you can imagine, his interview with the real Zane Lowe is a bit like watching the Radio 1 DJ engage in some sort of David Lynchian deconstruction-of-the-self experience.

Live performance from the sprightly young Sunderland quartet Little Comets, who put in a chipper performance of sweetly sonorous  songs from their well-received new album, In Search of Elusive Little Comets.

It’s all recorded and filmed in a pleasingly dingy warehouse space below AllSaints’ design studios in Spitalfields, and there’s a new session every couple of weeks.

Think of it like subscribing to receive one of those organic vegetable boxes delivered to your front door twice a month where the contents are always a surprise, but equally, always delicious.

Except, with the Basement Sessions, instead of a handful of grubby carrots, you’ll be getting stuck into some ace new bands. Hey, why not do both? You’ll become healthier and more musically well-rounded.
