Melbourne’s DIY indie outfit, The Stroppies, signed to Tough Love Records are set to release their debut album ‘Whoosh’ in March 2019. Championed by BBC 6 Music, the band’s Lexington, London gig has already sold strongly, and a UK tour will include dates in Newcastle, Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, Brighton and Bristol.
With Harvey Keitel, Jeff Goldblum, Greta Gerwig and Frances McDormand also on vocal duties, Isle of Dogs is as daft as it is deft. Even cat lovers will dig it.
Fantastic Mr. Fox / PG / 89 minutes
Mr. and Mrs. Fox live an idyllic home life with their son Ash and visiting young nephew Kristopherson. But after 12 years, the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr Fox's wild animal instincts. Soon he slips back into his old ways as a sneaky chicken thief and in doing so, endangers not only his beloved family, but the whole animal community. Trapped underground and with not enough food to go around, the animals band together to fight against the evil Farmers -- Boggis, Bunce and Bean -- who are determined to capture the audacious, fantastic Mr. Fox at any cost.
A bona fide local legend, Nev lives near Newcastle and until very recently was a mental health nurse. He's been clarting around the local music scene for 26 years
