Special show to mark Independent Music Venue Week
The Half Moon Putney has recorded a limited edition 12”vinyl album ‘Live from The Moon’ with all the proceeds going to the music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins.
Recorded at the pub over the past year, the live tracks come from a mixture of their regular artists such as Dr Feelgood, Eddie & The Hot Rods, John Bramwell (I Am Kloot) and some of their newer act, including Du Bellows, Millers Daughter and recently discovered Jazz band called the Blue Mondays from The Bull's Head and Ellie Rose from The Elgin.
The Half Moon launched the release with a special show on 29 January to coincide with Independent Venue Week, a nationwide initiative to promote live music at the grassroots level. The Half Moon Album launch show showcased Du Bellows, one of the new artists to feature on the album.
Du Bellows are a female fronted five piece from West London who after only a year in existence are already making sonic waves with their eclectic brew of bluesy rock via folk deep rhythm-heavy grooves to gospel/gypsy tearjerking melancholia.
They have also acquired some prestigious fans including Jimmy Page who after going to a show said: "Du Bellows are by far one of the most interesting and musically adept bands I have seen recently."
They were supported by Two Hands.
