Polyvinyl Craftsmen stage at Village Green 13th July

This Saturday (13th) thee Polyvinyl Craftsmen will be hosting a stage at the Village Green Festival in Chalkwell Park, Southend on Sea. We'll be in the Village Hall which is situated in the Park View Suites.

We are spinning vinyl all day between bands starting at 11.30. Organizers Metal have booked the bands for the earlier part of the day and then from 4.00pm we take over. 

Here is our line-up:

4.00-4.30 Ghost Music

2 lo-fi guitars and some Mo Tucker inspired rhythms, influenced by Silver Jews, Flying Nun and K Records. Ghost Music’s bitter sweet moments will soundtrack your Indian summer.

4.30 - 4.50 PVC DJs

4.50 - 5.20 Plantman

Described as 'making Field Mice sound like Modest Mouse' by The Guardian's Paul Lester,Plantman are singer/songwriter Matt Randall with Adam Radmall and Bryan Styles.

Previously members of psychedelic shoegaze band Beatglider,Plantman formed in 2009 with a love of The Go Betweens,Durutti Column,mixtapes and trebly guitars.

After releasing the limited edition debut album ‘Closer to the snow’ in 2010, Plantman returned in early 2013 to critical acclaim with the release of the melancholic ‘Whispering Trees’.

5.20 - 5.40 PVC DJs

5.40 - 6.10 Dead Coast

The band’s music is so captivating especially the melody in each track. This is a band you must check out if you like retro psychedelic garage rock.( The Musical Junkie).

The sound is reminiscent to the swinging ’60s, with easy comparisons to a heavier and more hallucinogenic version of The Beatles in their early days (Bring the Noise UK).

Their music would work perfectly as a soundtrack to a Quentin Tarantino film, with a laid-back quality that cruised from one song to the next, in a locomotion that emulated the movement of waves. They would be well worth checking out if you’re a fan at all of your quintessential surf rock bands of the 60s or similar new age acts such as The Growlers (

6.10 - 6.30 PVC DJs

6.30 - 7.00 Wobbly Lamps

Southend-based Wobbly Lamps play trippy garage rock, full of reverb and distortion. They have released two 7” EPs in the last year which have found their way into discerning record boxes around the globe and picked up plenty of airplay across the US and Europe. Their last record was played heavily by Gideon Coe on BBC 6Music who said . "I like this very much, look forward to playing it again! ". Paul Lagden - Guitar, Lee Hall - Guitar, Gareth Thomas – Vox, Zoë Howe – Drums, Derek Pitt – Bass 

The whole afternoon will be going out live on Radio Nova Lujon.

It's going to be busy so come along early, plot up and enjoy thee PVC experience live.
