Post-apocalyptic downer-fuzz-rock outfit Large Plants return to RMH for another headline show on Saturday 13th January!
Supported once again by Kent folk-rock band Green Diesel – a delightful double bill to start the year!
“Boasts fuzzy, dirty hooks, hints of the baroque and shades of Canterbury psych” – We Are Cult
Suddenly without a band and faced with the enforced lockdown of Summer 2020, Jack Sharp set up in a friends’ old barn in Bedfordshire and created a tonne of scuzzy, loner, biker-rock. The sound of Large Plants is a shaking invocation of post civilisation dread. An end of the world doom-folk party imbued with the rich vein of bucolic sorrow that Sharp’s vocal never fails to convey.
Hailing from Faversham in Kent, folk-rock band Green Diesel first emerged in 2009 and take their inspiration from the depths of English folk lore and legend and the classic folk rock sound of their predecessors Fairport Convention and The Albion Band. Blending violin, mandolin, dulcimer and accordion with electric guitars and drums, Green Diesel’s sound is born from a love of traditional English music and a desire to bring it to a modern audience.
“Like slipping through a mossen dell and into a secret garden of sound… should easily scratch that damp, wooden psychedelic itch” – Raven Sings the Blues on Large Plants
“More Fairport than Fairport and more Steeleye than Steeleye…” – Darren Johnson on Green Diesel
