A night of garage rock roll, punk blues and heavy overtures comes to GROW, Hackney Wick with Honkyfinger aka Jonny Halifax and The Howling Truth
"an unholy amalgam of minimalistic industrial noise crossed with acid blues and psychedelic punk" Vive Le Rock
Birmingham-born Jonny Halifax (vocals, lap steel, harmonica, rhythm machine) and musical partner Marvin conjure an unholy brew of Suicide, Captain Beefheart and sonic drone for one night only!
Along their musical journey, they've recruited such stellar fans as Tom 'Son of John Peel' Ravenscroft (BBC Radio 6), former Ride linchpin Mark Gardener (who mixed "The Bestial Floor") and the aforementioned Lord Yatesbury. Jonny also found time to contribute to albums by Orange Goblin and Andrew Weatherall's Two Lone Swordsmen, and he's also about to play on a set by Baby Godzilla.
About Grow, Hackney
Carved out of an old sausage factory, Grow has been transformed into an independent canal side bar, kitchen and creative space. It was built, and is run by a small team. We operate as a ethical and sustainable business and rely on the creative sharing economy of Hackney Wick and the surrounding area. We partner with artists, musicians, DJ's and community groups to and hold as many free events as we can. We have a range of craft and organic drinks at the bar and the kitchen serve a seasonal menu freshly prepared in the canalside kitchen. More at www.GrowHackney.co.uk
