Event Details

Real Magic Music VI. Doing things slightly differently this time. We have an evening in two halves, starting with a very special in conversation with Joel Gion from The Brian Jonestown Massacre! Joel’s book is out the day before and we are honoured to have him join us out in Wendover for a launch week party.


The Brian Jonestown Massacre are one of the great contemporary cult American rock and roll bands. Immortalised in one of the most unforgettable rock and roll documentaries of all time, DIG! alongside their friends/rivals/nemeses, The Dandy Warhol’s, in their early years when the US were obsessed with grunge, the BJM felt like a ’60s anachronism. But with albums like Their Satanic Majesties Second Request and Thank God for Mental Illness, and incendiary, often chaotic, live shows, they burnished their legend as true believers and custodians of the original west coast flame; a privilege and responsibility which continues to this day when the band have a bigger and more dedicated audience than ever.

That is not all. We are also bringing Tapir! to the village. The South London six-piece described as a ‘boiling together’ of different mediums: at once musical, theatrical, mythological, artistic, collaborative, narrative-led and, above all, something to be enjoyed and shared. 

Newly signed to Heavenly Recordings, their debut album The Pilgrim, Their God and the King of My Decrepit Mountain, a multiform record that owes as much to folk art and folklore as it does to alt-folk experimentation. Incomparable and brilliant, this will be a spellbinding and special performance, and quite unlike anything we have put on before. 

And our guest DJ is Jack Sellen, sublime selector, and one half of the production duo the Flying Mojito Bros. 

(please note the talk at this event will possibly contain some more adult themes)
