The Majestic are a London based 5-piece band with a unique brand of roots-rock reggae delivered in a whacky visual sing-a-long style. The present lineup has been together since late 2010 but their roots spread much longer.
They play at a number of festivals including Cosmic Puffin, Boomtown Fair, Sheffield Tramlines, Penn, Summer Breeze and Summer Saturnalia to name a few. The season culminates with headlining the Zion Festival in Malta.
Back in 1993 AVI* supporters Chris Wilde and Bryan Osbon took a small tent and an old VW bus to WOMAD music festival in Reading and started selling chai and peddling AVI leaflets.
As our festival catering has developed significantly over the years, so has Madras Cafe, driven by the enthusiasm of its growing band of cooks and volunteers. Madras Cafe is now the trading name of Sensetrade Ltd, a fully owned subsidiary of AVI with its own board of directors. The chair of Sensetrade is also a member of the AVI Board and reports to it.
Over the years Madras cafe has thoroughly depended on the unflinching enthusiasm and skill of its merry band of cooks, its multi-talented site crew and its expanding army of choppers, servers and pot scrubbers. We always welcome offers of more help and hope the fun will continue into the future!
*Action Village India (AVI) is a UK-based charity working for change in rural India for 28 years. India’s rapid economic development has left hundreds of millions of people untouched and has destroyed the homes and livelihoods of millions more. It is those marginalised people that AVI’s partners work with, in the Gandhian tradition of nonviolent action, to right economic and social injustice.
In the Autumn of 2014, a freak musical collision forced Ghosts Of Men to become but two.
This is the fallout; a truly massive guitar sound and huge groove laden drums mixed in with seductive vocals make for a musical experience that is at the same time as fresh and new as it is dirty and as old as time.
Dripping with funky, sleazy riffs and primal choruses, less in this case really does mean more.
Unity Division is a lively fun Punk/Folk/Rock 3-piece band with original material blending raw and sensuous energy.
Serena leads with an exciting vocal tone, brickwall guitar and a visual feast of costumes (the exception being Unity Division’s infamous naked live set on ResonanceFM), whilst Dru has a pure sweet voice melding his haunting vocals with angsty rhythm guitar chops and rumbling bass. Completing the lineup is exceptional veteran drummer Chris Black (Tears of Destruction/ Stomp/ Agent Provocateur/ Sniper/ Mekon/ William Orbit) bringing his tight, hard-hitting rhythms to the stage.
Punk/folk rhythms, chainsaw guitars mashed with soaring heartfelt harmonies and lyrics that are heart-wrenching in their honesty – delivered with a passion, good vibes, DIY ethics and positive self-awareness: all bundled up within a sense of fun and festival spirit.
