CORDUROY 2018 LOGO Photo banner161797680

Saturday 18th December

The Night Owl proudly present


Amidst the exaggerated swagger of 'Lad-Rock' and the self-conscious 'Brit-Pop' excesses of the mid-nineteen nineties, the Melody Maker reader's 'Best Live Act' awards, placed an Acid Jazz combo, Corduroy, amongst its top five…not bad for a band of who's stage set largely consisted of instrumentals.

Formed in December 1991and signed to Acid Jazz Records in January 1992, the south-London four-piece's live performance was energetic and infectious; rubber-band bass runs, buzz-saw guitar lines, creative funky drumming and a relentless soundscape of Hammond organ and melodic electric piano, combined into an adrenaline rush that was exciting, filmic and cartoonish.

The 'fabric four' became an instant hit on the international live circuit, their shows a frenetic celebration of grooviness and fun.

2018 saw a new era of the Corduroy story; resigning to Acid Jazz Records with a new album The Return Of The Fabric Four.

2019 saw Well Suspect Records releasing a'best-of' and B-Sides album, Winky Wagon.

2021 has the release of Winky Wagon 2 on Well Suspect, whilst Corduroy work on a seventh studio album for Acid Jazz.

+ The Humdrum Express

Bringing their snappy, good humoured vibes to the party on 18th December are The Humdrum Express…

Regularly championed by BBC 6 Music and famed for withering critique, they breezily deliver offbeat observation, social commentary and sharp wit; deliciously served up on a bed of jaunty clatter.

"Brilliant, observationally... part of me just wants to stand up and applaud" - Steve Lamacq.
