Join us for an evening of music and conversation with Pete Astor of Indie pop fame with local support from Anne-Marie Sanderson

Pete Astor led Creation Records’ groups The Loft and The Weather Prophets, writing songs and releasing records that helped define the sound of the label and the emerging Indie genre. He has gone on to a lengthy solo career since then; writing, recording and releasing music on a range of labels including Matador, Heavenly, Warp, EMI and Fortuna Pop. Since 2017 Astor has been signed to Tapete Records, home to Robert Forster, Lloyd Cole and Comet Gain among many reputable others. He will be playing songs from his new record, Tall Stories & New Religions where he is re-visits and re-imagines his songs from throughout his lengthy and estimable career.

‘The master of less is more’ The Guardian

A lifetime of listening has led me to believe that Pete Astor’s songs would have always found a way to reach an audience. If he’d been a Californian baby boomer, he’d have ended up in the Capitol Records building in Los Angeles, laying down late-night grooves with the Wrecking Crew for a largely-neglected, slightly gloomy, pop album that’d now be worth a fortune. If he’d been born into post-War Britain, earnest girls in sweaters would’ve fallen in love with him, and his songs, in Embassy-fogged folk clubs. – Danny Kelly, NME

Anne- Marie Sanderson will be providing some local support:

Anne-Marie’s songwriting is both thought-provoking and uplifting, combining deft guitar work with imaginative melodies. Nearly five years since the release of her last EP, Book Songs Vol. 1, Anne-Marie is hard at work finishing her debut album, which is due for release in 2024. The forthcoming release promises to be well worth the wait: in addition to being her first full-length album, it will be both musically and thematically her richest yet, pairing brand new songs with previously unreleased material written over a decade ago.

As well as performing her own original material, Anne-Marie can also be found playing cello in Cumbrian singer-songwriter J P Worsfold’s Band of Gold. Having previously toured in the US, Europe and the UK, and opened for artists as eclectic as Sam Amidon, Rozi Plain and Ralph McTell, Anne-Marie is looking forward to reaching new audiences with her upcoming release.
