•••We Welcome•••’And Yet It Moves’
Fronted by Dale Barclay formerly ‘The Amazing Snakeheads’•••

“The ever expanding, all encompassing sound of And Yet It Moves has left anyone with the fortune witnessing their carnage exhausted but singing their praises.

The six strong band fronted the emphatic and enthralling Dale Barclay have delivered two powerhouse UK tours in 2016, exorcising many a sweaty basement, that culminated in their Black Sheep Records riotous Christmas party in their hometown of Glasgow.

With raw and simple ambitions: squarely to save music from mediocrity, connecting human beings with music, And Yet It Moves’ no bullshit, no prisoners policy is as fresh as their approach to the music they create. They make music for the love of it as they’re damn good at it!

Live they enrapture crowds with a real natural chemistry, Barclay’s undeniably captivating aura and expansive, powerful songs that we’ve just had a taster of. 2016 saw four tracks appear online; the dizzying epic ‘No Way Back To Lunch’, the subverted and mocking ‘Make America Great Again, Again’, ‘Mark Swan’ and the soon to be videoed ‘Ketamine Ma’am’ all left fans begging for more.

If you want freedom these are the guys for you, if not just go away”

Los Dave at the Coastguard

‘Once There Were No Borders, No Boundaries, Only Horizons’

On May 19th the Coastguard welcomes Los Dave…

An exhibition of works, creating a series of intimate ambient spaces and utilising all three galleries within the Coastguard Studio.
Within these spaces Los Dave presents expressive, expansive landscapes that are as much about presence/absence as places for
narrative and poetic connections. LosDaves’ upcycled wire bird sculptures inhabit these spaces adding a constant presence, movement
and shifting dynamics.

The show includes a live mixed media performance using paint, video
and a live soundtrack to explore aspects of landscapes around
Portsmouth and our relationship with them.
