THE REGULARS+ SPILT MILK SOCIETY + QUINN + JACK TOOP
After repeat airtime with local BBC stations, support shows with the likes of Little Comets, Airways and Otherkin, The Regulars return to Birmingham for a headline show at The Sunflower Lounge.
The Regulars, known for their exciting live shows, with catchy, upbeat indie rock’n'roll tunes, have received excellent reviews from local press and radio, for both their on-stage performances and their singles. BBC Introducing agreed with The Regulars’ tag line when they described themselves as ‘hard hitting, foot tapping, hand clapping, finger snapping, sing-along, rock’n'roll’.
“Absolutely brilliant” – BBC Introducing Shropshire

Rock music has rarely sounded as bittersweet and contradictory as when it’s in the hands of Sam Lambeth. Something of an underground figurehead (Lambeth has spent years reviewing and championing bands, putting on gigs, performing DJ sets and, of course, fronting groups), with his latest outfit, Quinn, he has fine-tuned his jauntily melancholic music and buffed it to a summer sheen. Sun-kissed melodies are matched with wistful, downbeat lyrics, a winning juxtaposition that Lambeth has learnt from his musical idols – think The Lemonheads, Teenage Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr. and The Jesus & Mary Chain.
2016 was a great debut year for Quinn. Their debut EP, Seems Fine, raised over £300 for Teenage Cancer Trust, as well as solid reviews and airplay on BBC Introducing, BBC WM, Brum Radio and Scratch FM. Quinn also supported established acts including We Are Scientists, INHEAVEN, Teleman and Johnny Lloyd, with 2017 seeing backing slots with Darlia, The Orielles and Lambeth’s songwriting hero, Evan Dando.
With their second EP set for release this summer, and a new single coming in the late spring, Quinn’s bear-hug guitars, summery harmonies and jangly riffs are sure to be more than just a fleeting fling.
