IN SUPPORT of the release of their latest single A Place Called Home, Rough Trade alumni Band Of Holy Joy perform at the Studio Bar tomorrow.

Forever changing, consistently unique yet, always somehow the same, the Band Of Holy Joy began life as gutter chansoniers using junk shop instruments to propagate a brute romantic madly literate form of dispossessed urban folk music.

Since then the band have scaled a few heights fallen down in one or two more gutters, broken up, glued themselves together, toured the world, released a fair few albums and fully explored other media by presenting two audio visual song plays: Troubled Sleep at the Shunt Theatre in London 2008 and an Invocation for William Burroughs at the Sorbonne Paris in 2009.

Alkatraz and Hilton White Line also play.
