Cosmic Americana from London town mixing desert haze with grey rain: The Hanging Stars join us on Thursday 23rd November!
Fantastic folk-rock with a psychedelic twist… and a chance for the band to showcase some new music!
“The Hanging Stars are close to perfection on a magnificent album which just about defines ‘cosmic country'” – Americana UK
Channelling the sounds of The Byrds, Big Star and The Flying Burrito Brothers, as well as hints of Mojave 3 and The Allah Las, The Hanging Stars mainline the dying embers of the early 70s psychedelic folk and cosmic country scenes.
The band is comprised of songwriter, singer and guitarist Richard Olson, Sam Ferman on bass, Paulie Cobra on drums, Patrick Ralla on banjo, guitar, keyboards and assorted instruments, with pedal steel courtesy of Joe Harvey-Whyte.
“Wearing their cosmic country and late 60s West Coast folk-rock influences on their sleeve, embroidered with seams of Crosby Stills and Nash and The Byrds… The Hanging Star’s fourth album Hollow Heart is their best yet” – Folk Radio
“Cosmic and authentic country Americana from north London” – The Quietus
“Psych-country vibes abound here… purveyors of a cosmic bliss” – At the Barrier
