Next Gig - RICHARD DAWSON live in Newcastle
PLEASE NOTE: this show is now completely sold-out.
Richard Dawson kicks off another UK tour with a Newcastle show at the great Star & Shadow, following the release of his peerless album 'Nothing Important'.
" Whether it’s a masterpiece will become apparent with the passage of time." 5* - The Guardian
“A remarkable record” 4* - MOJO
“Dawson emerges as a talented chronicler of the tiniest, realest details” – NME
“An odyssey of intelligent observation, morose humour and north-eastern magic” 5* - Record Collector
“Weirdly engrossing” 9/10 – Vice
“This is a record that unsettles and subverts” 5* - The Guardian
“madcap, abrasive and, at times, laugh out loud funny” – Q
“Nothing Important is a rhapsody of the material, the messy, and the intensely human” 9/10 – Loud & Quiet
"Nothing Important is a remarkable record – at times deeply, painfully intimate, but also witty, bawdy, surreal, disquieting, nostalgic, brash and fearlessly individual. While Dawson draws loosely on folk traditions, be it from the North East of England, the Appalachian Mountains or the Gulf of Arabia, his sound also brings to mind more modern sources – Beefheart, Earth, Loren Mazzacane Connors, Bill Orcutt, Sun City Girls, tiny glimpses of drone, minimalism, avant-metal, math-rock, psychedelia. It's all of these things and yet none of them."
