Another better-late-than-never post and the type I find a bit odd to write with it being my own show and all so I shall do something a little different and instead of a normal write up, I’ve made videos with the live audio and photos from the night. Sadly, the images seem to have lost a lot of the quality though..
Anyway, this show had been planned for a little while in order to bring the whole gang from the Cheltenham based record label istartedthefire down to London for one big night. This was all to take place at the fantastic little South London venue of the Brixton Windmill which may not be the best venue on first glance but once the music (and beer) is flowing, it’s a brilliant place to be.

A bit of a mouthful of a title but it’s another TMWL show!
Following on from the successful show at the Betsey Trotwood, Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun manage to squeeze in a show at the Brixton Windmill inbetween sets at 2000 Trees and Y-Not Festivals and the show comes hot on the heels of the release of their Album, ‘Atlases’
“Could Jim Lockey and The Solemn Sun be the British Bright Eyes?”
– Is This Music magazine
“Jim Lockey and the Solemn Sun might just be the current, relevant band we were looking for”
– BBC Gloucestershire
High praise indeed! On the night, the boys will be joined by artists from their record label istartedthefire including;
“Cheltenham Soul-Folk duo MM, lead their unsuspecting audiences into a myriad of Ryan Admas influcenced guitar licks and beautiful vocal harmony”
“Walsall’s answer to Johnny Flynn’s blistering folk, combining the lyrical attributes of his heroes Dylan and Adams to create arresting songs of heartfelt intimacy.”
“This Guildford songstress blends summery acoustic stylings with an angelic vocal sweetness that will leave you lovestruck and enchanted”
