This January 21st Get yourselves down to the Frog and Fiddle for Slomo Casino's Debut Cheltenham show! Bringing their own incandescent brand of Indie/ Pop-soul to the Barn for the first time, Be ready to experience a two-piece like no other! Featuring support from Cheltenham's finest one man band Charlie Baxter & local up and comers 'The Font'.SLOMO CASINO, 'Marshmallow, the debut EP from Slomo Casino, was born from an exchange of drunken voice memos between two friends. One year, and thousands of voice memos later, Jonny Ball (guitar/ vocals) and Jack Batchelor (drums) are ready to release their debut EP. The pair met in Liverpool, forming a friendship after a particularly chaotic camping trip they shared together with friends. Embarking on an opening day, long forest-walk in rural France, the group were met with severe thunderstorms and torrential rain. They returned to their hired camper van a few hours later and realised to their horror that theyd left the van's roof window wide open. Facing down a flooded van, as well as soaked belongings and instruments, Jack and Jonny bonded over the sheer calamity of the holiday.Fast forward seven years, and between them, the pair have spent years supporting big name acts like The Libertines, Feeder and Mallory Knox, with their separate bands. Despite success with these projects, Jonny and Jack yearned for something else. Keen to make music closer to their hearts, they started afresh. What began as an exchange of increasingly drunken voice memos slowly morphed into something tangible. Something unique, bright and, most importantly to them? something exciting.Slomo Casino's EP is characterised by infatuate falsettos, breezy verses and catchy, wing-spreading choruses. But whilst their effervescent brand of Indie/Pop-Soul quickly charms and hooks, there's also a resilience to their music. Dont give it up, let it go to waste, Jonny sings in the chorus of beaming title track Marshmallow. A song about love and lust at its core, it calls upon a desire to chase after something more. For Slomo Casino, it's about having the courage to pursue the music, as well as the love, that inspires them, http://slomocasino.com/CHARLIE BAXTER, Charlie Baxter's in our house! Bringing his Electro-Pop-Rock stylings and some friends out to play, this one man dub-pop machine conducts a symphony of songs that will have you dancing and singing along, glowsticks in hand.https://charliebaxtermusic.com/THE FONT, Indie/ Alt-rock band from Cheltenham, England."Better than the ???? we used to make." - Darren (Sav's Dad)Coached in producing their own electric guitar sound the Font were determined to impress. If this band were a Venn diagram they would overlap with the Enemy, the Artic Monkeys, Oasis and, eh, the Font. Lined up at the front of the stage like the Dave Clark Five they were rightly proud of their songs. And the 90s tinged indie-rock sound was impressive. - SLAP Magazine, https://linktr.ee/thefontTickets £6 ADV // £8 OTD, Available @ wegottickets.com/frogandfiddle, Doors @ 7:30pm, Strictly 18 Only!
