Friday 26th May - BC Camplight at The Cornish Bank

More live music from The Cornish Bank with BC Camplight. "This is an examination of madness and loss," says Brian Christinzio, the inimitable force behind BC Camplight. 

Fired by his ongoing battle with mental illness, Shortly After Takeoff is the final, and finest, chapter of what Christinzio calls his "Manchester Trilogy", After Takeoff spans singer-songwriter classicism, gnarly synth-pop, and '50s rock'n'roll, with Christinzio's similarly distinctive, flexible vocal carrying a fearless approach to lyrical introspection, but the new album is a major leap forward in songwriting sophistication and lyrical communication.
