You simply cannot keep a great songwriter down. A founding member of Brighton based The Mojo Fins, Stephen (SJ) Brett has found his feet again, with a new band that includes Paul Pascoe on bass, Oddur Runnarson on guitar and Nick Van Vlaenderen on drums. This is only their third gig together, but there’s a natural chemistry apparent from the off, as they effortlessly gel as a unit.

This was my first time seeing the Bleeding Hearts Club at the Rialto Theatre, which seems pretty remiss of me when I think about it: they’ve been based here for a couple of years at least. For the uninitiated, it’s a monthly night organised by Chris Davies, the man behind local label Bleeding Heart Recordings, who’ve given us some rather illustrious indie releases over the years from a raft of local artists, including Clowwns, Crayola Lectern, Grasshopper, Seadog, and Thomas White, who was appearing later on in the night.
