*MER_Flyer-7th June

Line up for 7th June:

10.10pm
Men and Gods
Artist Website
Slash recently described Marc Eden as: “One of the greatest RNR singers I’ve ever heard!”
Formed in 2008, Men & Gods create a swirling, carnivalesque, psychedelic heavy blues experience the band draws you in with their soulful riffs, powerful vocals and mastery of the classic roots of Rock’n’ roll.

9.20pm
Adam Masterson
Artist website
Adam’s debut album ‘One Tale Too Many’ was released in 2003 on Gravity/BMG. It received much critical praise. Signed by Nick Stewart (the man who signed U2) and produced by Mick Glossop, ‘One Tale Too Many’ featured many Van Morrison alumni and session musicians in the production.

Adam stands in a tradition that unites songwriters who have followed their muse regardless of fad and fashion or the demand for hit singles. Songs that could be dropped down in any time or place and which would strike a deep and resonant chord. It seems extraordinary that a record as mature, natural and deeply romantic as “One Tale Too Many” can arrive as if out of nowhere.

To support the album Adam opened shows for The Stereophonics at Earls Court and the Cardiff Millennium Stadium and headlined a ‘City Showcase’ event at London’s Borderline sharing the bill with Amy Whinehouse. He also supported Tori Amos and toured the US and UK with Philadelphia-based band Marah.

8.50pm
