The for-Wards project aims to create a cultural sound map of Birmingham with an original piece of music being composed for each of the ten city districts. Each composition will be created by musicians with strong Birmingham connections such as Pram, Percy Pursglove and Napalm Death founding member Justin Broadrick. The finale of the two year project will feature a major concert where all pieces will be shared. It’s a unique and wonderful idea, check out the website here . With the pledge campaign drawing to a close there’s one final push for funds and what a push it is. Birmingham’s own rockabilly pin up girl, the gorgeous Harry Jordan with her band Harry and the Howlers, will be opening a can of southern whupass and pouring it down your throats, alongside acoustic sets from Ghosts of Dead Airplanes guitarist Greg Smith and local songwriter Andrew Souter. DJ’s Young Culture Sound, straight outta Moseley, will be spinning dance hall classics and the ever reliable Tom Mason and Joe Turner are also on spinning duties. A great line up and a worthy cause.
