Awash with AntleR are getting a bit curious about what their manager Bronson has been doing whilst he has been on holiday....

Bronson went on holiday after he was handled rather vigorously during an early AWA gig and decided he needed a bit of a break from the harsh realities of t...he music industry. Well, now he is back with a vengeance!

If you don't know who Bronson is, he is a Boy-Chicken.

Bronson will be joining us at our next gig on 31st July, which is at the New Adelphi Club in Hull... Be sure not to miss this momentous event!

A Youtube video and ensuing review....

From Beverley Folk Festival....

Many thanks to Jim Orwin who filmed!

The ensuing review of the larkin25 - 'all night north' performances:

It's always with held breath and white knuckles, however, that one approaches a tribute to Larkin. It's well-documented, by now, that Philip wasn't exactly a cheery poet, nor was he the kind of community-spirited poet that this country seems to insist on producing these days. Larkin is the figurehead for all misanthropic poets who was happier to report on what he saw from his window, be it that of his flat or the carriage of a train, than actually mingle with the people that populated his work. A roomful of poetry and music lovers in an East Yorkshire leisure centre would, perhaps, have terrified Larkin, especially as a handful of them attempt to put some of his poems to music. Strangely, however, some of the songs seem to work well and have been compiled on a CD that is available to listen to in full at A duo going by the name of Man Made Noise turn Larkin's Mr Bleaney into a dreamy, Pink Floyd-esque song that manages to capture the dusty, post-war England that Larkin described so well. Kristian Eastwood's rendition of At Grass is also a refreshing reading of Larkin's work, as is Edwina Hayes's This Be The Verse, but, perhaps, neither are as refreshing, nor as strange and otherworldly as Far Out by the band Awash with Antler – three young ladies who appear to have overdosed on an almost lethal cocktail of Bjork, The Unthanks and Philip Larkin's Collected Poems. If it wasn't so intriguingly entertaining, I suppose I could simply sit and listen to the distant sound of Mr Larkin, spinning wildly in his grave.

What an effect we have on people! An interesting review from a very interesting article about the full festival...

When you want to make a song a bit Longer....

Hello! This is Salbo AntleR and most of my songs are quite short. I am in the process of 'making one a bit longer' and I just wanted to point out that merely adding a few words to a song can really change the meaning of a song.

In this case its from a slightly yucky love song into a bit of a delusional rant from someone with a restraining order!

Fabulous! xXx

Cottingham Springboard Festival 2010 - two for free

Awash With AntleR play thier first gigs since last summer! So what have we been up to? Well, we firstly had a well deserved break. Emma bashed some saucy samba drums. Sally joined the Rocky Nest's ever mutating orchestra. Lu ate muffins, did some surfing in Cornwall & tinkered with Hurricane Lulu. Then AWA band camp rehearsals commenced again in November. In January we went into the recording studio for a track that is on the 'All Night North' cd - out on June 10th.

We are very pleased to be part of this year's Larkin 25 celebrations. There will be much more information soon, along with other projects we have planned. But for now, do please come & join in with fun & frolicks at this year's Cottingham Springboard Festival. It's a bit like a musical pub crawl over the lovely village of Cottingham. Shandygaff, sunshine & free music. What could be a better way to spend the bank holiday?

Our new home - are you local?

House on the prairie
Hello & welcome again to the Awash With AntleR blog. We set this up a while ago, but never properly used it. This will now be our new home :) We've scrapped our old website, muahaha. It was costing too much money & was a paff to update. This is much simpler & nicer.

In the studio for Larkin 25

We've been busy in the studio, recording a track that sets Philip Lakin's poem 'Far Out' to music. It will be on the All Night North CD, released this June as part of the Larkin 25 cellebrations. We don't like to blow our own band camp trumpets, but it sounds ace!!! Can't wait for you to hear it. Lu, Em & Sally xXx

Singing by the seaside

AWA have retreated to sing by the seaside. Things will be a little quiet on the live gig front for a few months. Don't worry though, there's some mischief to be had in 2010.
