The Festival

THE PIG-at Bridge Place - 13th August 2022

Our musical honeypot of a house was one of Kent’s foremost rock & roll club venues in the 1960s, that in its glory days it played host to Led Zeppelin, The Kinks, The Moody Blues, Manfred Mann, The Yardbirds and many more…so it feels only right that the sounds of Smoked & Uncut should shake up once more!

Classic festi-food is order of the day across the festival, but if you fancy tucking into something a little heartier why not try one of our pop up feasting tents. Feasting tickets must be purchased IN ADDITION to a festival entrance ticket. 

More than Music

In between garden-grooving and festi-feasting, make sure you check out all the happenings at Smoked & Uncut!

Head to our Glitter and Braid bars for the full festi- look, have a rummage through The Smoked & Uncut Bazaar, fill up on feel good over in the Field Spa, kids can head over to The Den, try on a few festi-frocks at the RIXO bus plus much more...

What's On

SUPERGRASS HEADLINE AT THE PIG-AT BRIDGE PLACE

Throwing it back to 90's rock'n'roll, Supergrass will be playing some nostalgic anthem at THE PIG-at Bridge Place in 2022. At the height of Britpop and Cool Britannia, the Oxford trio released their debut album I Should Coco in 1995 at the height of Britpop and Cool Britannia, and their most well-known hit “Alright” catapulted them into the mainstream. Since then the band released five albums: In It for the Money (1997), Supergrass (1999), Life on Other Planets (2002) Road to Rouen (2005) and Diamond Hoo Ha (2008), as well as a decade- ending compilation called Supergrass Is 10 (2004).

Supergrass

Supergrass

Pop does have a habit of taking us by surprise, but back in the spring of 1995 you’d have got some decent odds on the chances of three naked men in a bath turning out to be one of the few British bands to escape the 20th Century with their dignity intact. In one early interview, Supergrass took a smart stance on their own future: “We’re aware we could disappear overnight,” Gaz decided. As for success? “If it’s going to happen, it’ll happen.” And somehow it did happen, to the tune of millions of album and single sales, hundreds of gigs, blanket critical acclaim and, yes, a legacy that exists purely because nobody was trying to create one.

At the height of Britpop and Cool Britannia, the Oxford trio signed to Parlophone Records in 1994 and released their debut album I Should Coco in 1995 at the height of Britpop and Cool Britannia. Their most well-known hit “Alright” catapulted them into the mainstream. Since then the band released five albums: In It for the Money (1997), Supergrass (1999), Life on Other Planets (2002) Road to Rouen (2005) and Diamond Hoo Ha (2008), as well as a decade-ending compilation called Supergrass Is 10 (2004).

The Selecter

The Selecter

The Selecter is led by their iconic frontwoman Pauline Black and co-fronted by original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson. Pauline is one of the very few women in the 2-Tone scene  - often referred to as the Queen of Ska. She was awarded an OBE in the 2022 New Year Honours.

2-Tone was a crucial multi-racial, multi-cultural explosion borne out of Coventry and the Midlands that remade British pop from 1979 onwards. The main bands who pioneered the movement were The Selecter, The Beat, The Specials and Madness.

The anarchic passion that fuelled Selecter gigs during the original 2-Tone era is still there, except the pair are more driven than ever.  Their confidence is sky-high and they’re also writing the best songs of their career, which is saying something given the enduring popularity of hits like “Three Minute Hero,” “Missing Words,” “Too Much Pressure” and “On My Radio.”

The Selecter continue to release new music, charting new albums in the UK in the last couple of years, proving that 2-Tone is still as relevant and important as it was 40 years ago. In October 2017 The Selecter released studio album Daylight – their most urgent, politically engaged and purely uplifting record since the days of Too Much Pressure and Celebrate The Bullet. 

The Selecter toured extensively to celebrate their 40th Anniversary and the 40th anniversary of 2-Tone in 2019. The tour started in Europe covering 7 countries before they headed back for 20 dates in the UK & Ireland finishing at London’s o2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

2021 saw the release of a Too Much Pressure Deluxe Edition 3CD Box Set & Vinyl to celebrate the album’s 40th anniversary. The box set contains a new remaster of the original 1980 debut album. CD2 collects all the non-album singles, b-sides, John Peel session and some previously unreleased rarities. CD3 features a newly mixed concert recorded at Tiffany’s in Coventry on the Two Tone Tour in November 1979, along with some tracks recorded in 1980.

The Deluxe Edition reached #1 in the Official UK Vinyl Album Charts and #1 in the Official UK Independent Album Charts on its release.

Connor Selby

Connor Selby

Connor Selby is a rising British star in the traditions of Eric Clapton and Peter Green, who has already performed with his band at Wembley Stadium, at the age of 22, at the behest of The Who. Winner of The Young Artist of the Year Award in the 2020 and 2021 UK Blues Awards, the young bandleader-guitarist-vocalist draws on influences as diverse as B.B. King, Ray Charles, Free and Nick Drake, creating a soulful blend of hard-hitting blues and emotional, introspective songwriting, which, at times, evokes a modern take on the best of the British blues boom of the 1960s. Connor has recently recorded a self-titled album at Masterlink studios, due for release later this year, featuring 'Redtenbacher's Funkestra', a house band of world-class musicians with CVs to prove it (think Elton John, David Bowie, Annie Lennox, Jack Bruce etc). This release should further cement Connor's reputation as one of our brightest young talents; a talent who has already garnered invitations to tour with not only legendary Bluesman John Mayall but also a UK stadium tour with the aforementioned The Who.

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard

The most exciting new band to break out of Wales in recent years Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have today released their hotly-anticipated debut album Backhand Deals via Communion. The album has already been subject of critical acclaim from the likes of DIY, Record Collector, The Line Of Best Fit, Gigwise, Uncut, and Dork magazines. The band have also shared the video for album highlight ‘Good Day’ - the sequel to ‘Break Right In’, directed by Will Clark - to celebrate the release. The video brings to light the band’s plans to ambush the evil rhythm-banning Dr. Monadnock and the chaos (involving bald wigs and more) which transpires next.

With Backhand Deals, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard are ripping up the rule book. A rejection of rock music's more archaic ideals, their debut album plunges into Rees’ exploration of honesty and authenticity, and untangles what it means to be a ‘rock star’. The key to this demystification is Rees’ sharp wit - using sarcasm and humour to keep the listener in limbo, and in turn, leading their audience to face their own thoughts. He elaborates: “Usually I would make one big joke out of how we ripped off the whole album or it was a great opportunity to crash and burn or something like that, but as it's coming out I think it's time to dash away the insecurity and say that this is a deeply personal, and in turn honest record.” “I've always had a thing about honesty with our music, it was what made me want to start the band in the first place, I thought 'hey, I'm just going to make music that I love, and if other people love it too, then cool'. I love this record, and if you do too, then cool, very cool.” Off the back of packed-out festival sets last summer and sold-out headline shows at Cardiff Castle and two nights at London’s The Social in October, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard will embark on a headline tour which includes their biggest show in the capital to date at Scala on 10 March - tickets are available HERE. The band have also shared teasers of their enigmatic live shows by recently sharing tantalising live performances of album cuts ‘Yourself’ and ‘You’. Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard will also support Stereophonics alongside the legendary Tom Jones and Catfish and the Bottlemen at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium in June.
***
Since forming in 2017, the Cardiff-based four-piece - the aforementioned vocalist and guitarist Tom Rees, guitarist Zac White, drummer Ethan Hurst and Rees’ brother and bassist Eddie - have become one of the most talked-about new bands in the U.K. Driven by an exciting, dynamic energy presented at a host of magnetic, hype-building live shows, the band’s critically-acclaimed debut EP The Non-Stop then followed in summer 2020. In the run-up to Backhand Deals’ release, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have seen repeat BBC Radio 1 airplay from Jack Saunders (who featured them as a Power Play and previously Daily Delivery), Annie Mac, and Gemma Bradley, heavy support from Jo Whiley (the band even performed at Maida Vale live-to-air on Whiley’s show) and Will Young on BBC Radio 2, John Kennedy at Radio X (where ‘You’ was added to the X-Posure playlist), as well as Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 6 Music.

Across their multiple, frenetic tours, the band have made fans in tourmates from The Magic Gang to Miles Kane, and were set to support Noel Gallagher – another on a growing list of fans – at the Royal Albert Hall before the coronavirus struck. Operating out of their studio base in Cardiff, the band are also an integral part of a blooming Welsh indie scene. Alongside his work in Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard, Rees is also a fast-rising producer, working with the likes of Do Nothing, Private World, The Bug Club and Panic Shack.
