The Jesus Bolt are Hazel Winter and Gerard Starkie. Hazel Winter, described by Q Magazine as “The West Country’s first lady of noir-ish guitar blues” and Louder Than War, as, “…a low-fi genius being intermittently possessed by the spirits of Victoria Wood and Ian Dury “, played guitar for The Blue Aeroplanes in the early 90s and has since released a string of albums, produced numerous videos and published her first book of poetry , “I’m scared of the pig on The City Farm” in Dec 2018.When Gerard Starkie’s band Witness released the first of 2 albums on Island records in 1999, The Times described his vocals as;” imbued with that nebulous quality of soul, fragile, sensitive and exuding a dignified stoicism doubtless borne of experience.” Starkie has gone on to release 2 solo albums and toured extensively with The Blue Aeroplanes. Together as The Jesus Bolt, they have released 2 EP’s; ‘Error and Industry’ and’ That Unwanted Present’ and have completed work on their debut album due for release November 2021
Unassuming, unusual and enigmatic, T.E. Yates is a multi-disciplinary artist of rare and disarming qualities that must be seen and heard to be believed. Most musicians boast of exploding onto their local scene in a glittering blaze of media hype and spontaneous applause. T.E. Yates, however, snuck in through an open window.His name was not on the top line of event posters but rather a discreet artist signature in the bottom corner; his first gig flyers and album covers were ones he designed for other bands not himself. He’s performed in front of huge crowds but always as a hired hand or supporting player, a multi-instrumentalist in the shadows – mandolin, banjo, harmonica, even musical saw – you may have heard him on the tracks of other artists without even knowing it.But now T.E. Yates has stepped out of the shadows, taking centre-stage with a formidable backing band (both onstage and on record) comprising members of Victorian Dad, The Bedlam Six, Ottersgear, Gorilla Riot and Honeyfeet. Even when performing solo the man doesn’t travel light, his weird and wonderful drawings regularly making an appearance between songs, baffling and delighting audiences in equal measures. His debut EP “Possessed” was released on Debt Records in 2013. His first full LP, entitled “Silver Coins And White Feathers” and was produced by Biff Roxby, Yates’ first completed animated work, Evil Cat, was shortlisted for Best Music Video at the 2016 British Animation Awards.
