The Cuckoo Clocks originally formed 10 years ago when Paul Infanti (vocals/guitar) & Sophie Townsend (keys/vocals) joined forces. Over time, the ensemble has seen members come and go but for the last 3 years the latest incarnation has proven to be a winning formula. Musically completed with Jamie Holmes (bass/vocals), Richard Gibson (guitars/vocals) and Paul Blakeman (drums/vocals) and the last arrival being Tracy Deakin and her powerful vocal force, they can now deliver beautifully crafted songs in a magical way.
In June this year, their second album ‘Frontiers of a Seductive Mind’ was released and to celebrate the occasion a special, collaborative, “for one night only…” event was held at Abbeydale Picture House Cinema. This sell-out show featured an additional 11 musicians on stage (17 in total) with the likes of strings from the “Up North Session Orchestra”, Matt Howden (Sieben), Steve Edwards (Universal Tree) and Simon Stafford (Longpigs) to name a few.
As some punter’s commented “Absolutely beautiful evening. A sonic smorgasbord. Thank you. Xx” and “If Carlsberg did gigs they wouldn’t be half the show that the Cuckoo Clocks put on last night. What a great night and fantastic event!”
The Cuckoo Clocks don’t do shows very often, but when they do they’re special. This is a rare opportunity to witness another of those magical moments, with special guests, in an intimate location…
