I.C. and O.G.K Atlas are a pair of collaborating artists from the U.K, based in Leeds. The classic rapper and producer collaboration sparked in 2017 when the two met whilst working on smaller and respective solo projects. The chemistry that ensued between the two led to the makings of an EP, releasing of a single and a racket in the leeds music scene. The pair are able...
to produce sounds ranging from hardcore percussions to soulful melodies; tethered with complex rhyming schemes and narratives. Since september 2017, I.C. and Atlas have built a reputation and pulled interest in leeds with riveting live performances and the release of "The Tanned Terror" single in febuary 2018.
The two are currently promoting their debut single, aswell as playing many shows in Leeds, York, Hull and Manchester. With two more singles and an EP right around the corner in the spring months of 2018; and some solo projects from either entity, it's safe to say the I.C. & O.G.K Atlas are making a presence on the live scene and quite the disrupt in the
airwaves of music.

Tim Holehouse has spent the last 10 years on the road touring his ass off to play his music to the people of the world, playing his brand of mutant delta blues (delta blues played by a guy who was raised on a musical diet of being in Hardcore bands like Minor Threat, Husker du, Minute men and Black Flag).
Not touring for huge profits (just enough to get by) or to seek fame, just a pure love of music, travelling and adventure.
The archetypal image of a bluesman, outcast from... proper society and stalked by personal demons.

A delicious, award winning vanilla Porter, from Yorkshire Brewery, Brass Castle Brewery
The chewy caramel and chocolate balances well with the toasted malts in this unfined porter, giving a sweetness with a subtle bitter aftertaste.
If you haven’t tried it yet then you must, it won’t disappoint!
See you at the end of the bar, where I’ll be sipping a pint myself 🍻

Keep your eyes open though, we'll be rescheduling this event ASAP!
Blind Dead McJones was never a fan of being in the spotlight, no number 1 singles, cheesy videos or appearances on celebrity cooking programmes. A true Bluesman in every sense of the word, living a life on the road shrouded in mystery. Some say he died years ago in an agriculture related accident, some say he is part of the keyzer soze family and some say he now makes Halloween costumes for dogs. One thing we know for sure is he is responsible for bringing together the blues rock behemoth that is The Blind Dead McJones Band.
