The Defining Ten with…Fyfe Dangerfield (Guillemots)

At The Cellar Arts Club, 70 Marine Parade, Worthing, BN11 3QB


Out of stock

The Defining Ten is where an artist/creative is invited to take us on a musical dot to dot journey of the tracks which have led them to who they are today. These could be the first song they have a memory of, first purchase, first song they learnt to play, the track which opened doors, the track which closed doors, a track which inspired and lead to a new musical direction – so expect a variety of tracks from themselves and other artists. These tracks will be played in turn – either from vinyl, cd or streamed – and discussed with the artist. The evening will end with a unique performance and chance to meet the artist afterwards.

On Thursday 26th October we bring FYFE DANGERFIELD to Worthing.

Fyfe’s career started with founding a band called Senseless Prayer with his school friends, which went on to have a John Peel session and released a handful of eps. Afterwards he would write and be commissioned to write pieces of music for various festivals, including a close collaboration with the Lichfield festival. In 2004 he founded the band he is most well known for – Guillemots, who would become a much loved act in the indie world armed with a magnificent array of singles including “Trains To Brazil”, “Annie Let’s Not Wait”, “We’re Here”, “Get Over It” and “Falling Out Of Reach” (which featured Sir Ian McKellen in a starring role in the video.)

Their debut album “Through The Windowpane” would go on to be nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, with their second album “Red” hitting the top ten. With the band in a brief hiatus following this Fyfe went on to release his acclaimed solo album “Fly Yellow Moon”, which would gain further exposure when his cover of Billy Joel’s “She’s Always A Woman” was used on a memorable John Lewis tv advert.

Guillemots reunited for two further albums “Walk The River” and “Hello Land!” before going on another hiatus. Fyfe has continued to record and perform a variety of work, including composing the music for a stage adaptation of Diana Wynne-Jones’ “Howl’s Moving Castle” (Famously turned into an animation by Studio Ghibli), collaborating with the improvisational acts Gannets and also playing guitar with The Courtesy Group. His recent solo work has included his intriguing Birdwatcher project on his own website and he has returned this year with a brand new single and further live dates to come.

We are very excited at bringing Fyfe to Worthing to listen to the songs and hear the stories around his Defining Ten, after which we will treated to a very special stripped back performance of material he has been involved in.
