Ventrelles, Holy Gloam & Shackites

Listen Up proudly present Ventrelles supported by Holy Gloam and Shackites at The Shipping Forecast, Liverpool on Friday 5th April 2024! 


Ventrelles, formed in Manchester 2018 are a four piece headed by Phil Knox, fusing the styles of 80’s guitar groups such as Pale Fountains and Echo and the Bunnymen and sometimes darker tinged edges of The Chameleons and The Jesus and Mary Chain with a punchy delivery, sun-soaked guitars, energetic rhythms, life-affirming vocals and soulful bass lines.

‘Sounds like a crescendo, a mancunian sonic landscape, layered with poignant lyrics and wearing its references proudly on its sleeve’

‘Wonderfully scenic and magnetically attractive shimmer guitar pop’

Holy Gloam are a 5-piece alt rock/shoegaze band from North Wales/NW England. Formed by songwriter Julian Neale at the tail end of 2021, the band played a smattering of live shows around the Chester/Wrexham area in the first half of 2022 leading up to the release of Welsh Music Prize longlisted debut album 'Small Nothings' on Mai68 Records. Line up changes saw a quiet end to the year and Julian head back into the studio with Ben Dempsey Sawin (Mowbird/Eitha Da) to record 3 new songs - the first of which 'Used for falling' being released digitally in July 2023 via Mai68 Records. Most recent single 'Buggin' To Feel Something', from that same session, is being released Feb 2024 on Shipwrecked Records.

Reviews of live performances have led to sound comparisons to Teenage Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr and Sugar, amongst others

..with songs that started out sounding like The Stone Roses drifting into Dinosaur Jnr/psych
grunge territory. The singer, with his deep baritone, slightly frail vocal underpinned a dense
and intricate soundscape that you could lose yourself in - Louder than War

Holy Gloam’s dream pop tinged two track cassette The Sun Has Set On My Heart, is a multi-layered grower with hints of Ride after a night of excess. There is much going on in this song and, thankfully, it all comes together to create a glorious noise –

Like all good stories, Shackites began in the pub. One drunken conversation led to the formation of the five-piece band, hailing from the holy triangle of Atherton, Tyldesley and Astley, Greater Manchester.

‘A crunk and drunk crazy white boy who resides in a sugar shack, often trashing his house, disturbing the peace and p*ssing in the neighbors yard for fun.’ - Urban Dictionary.
