THE CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN | Future Yard

On Saturday 6th April 2024 we welcome a truly one-of-a-kind performer to Future Yard.

The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, aka the ‘God of Hellfire’, was born out of the 1968 global hit ‘Fire’, and is best known for his flamboyant theatrical performances and his powerful, wide- ranging operatic voice. Brown has been a major influence on a wide range of musicians due to his outstanding vocal ability and wild stage persona and concepts, now considered a pioneer of shock rock and progressive rock and influential on heavy metal music.

Join us in spring to bask in the presence of a true enigma.

Blue Eyed Crows support.

Tickets on sale now. 

He associated with Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Frank Zappa, Hawkwind, Klaus Schultze and Alice Cooper and made a cameo appearance in the cult film “The Committee” and also “Tommy”, with countless collaborations that include The Alan Parsons Project, The Stranglers and The Prodigy throughout his decades long musical odyssey.

Arthur shows no signs of stopping or slowing down and continues to record and release hugely inspiring music, including his most recent release “Long, Long Road” (2022) and the launch of his new multi-media show “A Human Perspective”.

THE CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN

Comprising OF Doug Mallett (lead Guitar), Emma Ashcroft (Vocal & percussion), Stu Gibson (Bass) & Aaron Sawyer (Drums), rock band Blue Eyed Crows formed in 2020 through the Liverpool Psychedelic Society. Their unique genre-hopping style sits nicely somewhere between 60s psychedelia, 70s rock, gothic and alternative, with a modern edge and fresh perspective.

Influenced by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Dead Weather, Queens of The Stone Age, Bauhaus, King Gizzard, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown and The Stooges, the band refuses to be pigeon-holed. At their core they are earthy, dirty rock n roll…laced with a flourish of anything from bluesy jazz, to psychedelic funk, to gothic post-punk.

Inclusivity is at their heart, proudly representing female artists, northern artists, artists of colour as well as neurodiversity and lgbtqia+ within the band – which is reflected in its vibrant audience. This
group is a call to arms; to take notice and not take for granted what affects us all – socially, spiritually, politically and environmentally. Its purpose is to empower, encourage, provoke and inspire a diverse audience; many of whom feel they’re different or outsiders.

Each with their own strikingly unique and unusual character, all four members are fascinating to watch.
So different yet from the same colourful universe. Expect full drama, massive heart-felt vocals, explosive
driving drums, thoughtful, charismatic basslines and, mesmerising & all-encompassing lead guitar. The
Blue Eyed Crows are loud, flamboyant, and always leave a lasting impression.
