Glasswerk Concerts welcome The Miserable Rich to The Lexington, London on Wednesday 25th May to play their most exciting gig yet…

The Miserable Rich formed in 2007. With their layers of delicate, elegant strings and rich vocals you might expect this Brighton based band to be winking at the sommelier as they win another debate about philosophy to a round of applause. But despite travelling around Europe – playing their own gigs and supporting the likes of Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan – plus grabbing iTunes Song Of The Week and 6Music album of the day, they seem to have become mishap magnets – there have been traffic accidents and breakdowns, missed planes and deadlines, though they will be the first to admit that some of this might be self-inflicted.

Their distinctive chamber orchestra sound is created using cello and violin as the primary lead instruments, augmented by double bass, acoustic guitar and occasionally piano.
They have released two albums, Twelve Ways To Count (2008) and Of Flight & Fury (2010). link

With a combined age of 233 years, We Used to Make Things represent everything that is wonderful and unfashionable about nostalgic pop!

They formed three years ago from the unconventional union of a sophisticated metropolitan Londoner and a wild and wise Yorkshireman.

Taking influence from a shared love of The Kinks, The Beatles, ethereal vocal harmonies and tea, they write songs that send you on a journey through the open-plan offices of disaffected middle-management and the yearnings of love lost and unrequited. link

Devon born Josh Bray brings something acoustically refreshing onto the folk-blues scene with his debut album ‘Whisky and Wool’. Growing up listening to the likes of Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Led Zeppelin it wasn’t until later that Josh heard the late Nick Drake performing ‘Riverman’, that suddenly it all made sense to him and he soon became immersed in 1970s folk/rock. link
