The Lincoln Imp and Aggressive Management presents Billy Bibby & The Wry Smiles, The Marras and Sabella.
Former Catfish and the Bottlemen member Billy Bibby, brought his new band Billy Bibby & The Wry Smiles to the Lincoln Imp in Scunthorpe, for a fantastic triple header of live music.
Everyone in attendance was treated to three excellent bands, all offering their own style of indie / alternative rock music.
The line up consisted of Snuff, Wonk Unit, Vanilla Pod, One Car Pile-Up at The Lincoln Imp on Saturday 8th April.
Saturday night was a bit of a punk nostalgia session with seminal rockers Snuff returning to the imp for the first time in 15 years after reaching the heights of punk rock.
First Support were local boys One Car Pile-Up, who were also having a bit of a reminisce. Their set was quality, well received and they definitely had a few fans in. Towie, on the drums for OCP, then did a second set with next band Vanilla Pod, more high energy, with them moving the mics down off the stage front onto the floor for a more crowd intimate experience.

It’s always such an experience at Party In The Pines. Believe me you’ll always have a memory of it once you’ve lived it, whether you want it or not lol.
Once again we were lucky for another year with exceptional sunshine and heat beaming through the trees, maybe even a little too hot.
Entering the car park and camping field it already seemed a lot busier earlier on than previous years. I have been attending Pines since it started publically and every year has just seen more and more new and returning faces from Scunthorpe and from a far. Continue reading Summary// Party In The Pines 2016

Also if you used to be a resident weekend visitor at Henry’s there’s special guest DJ Si Jay spinning all the Henry’s dance anthems. Continue reading SHOWHAWK THIS SATURDAY // WORTLEY HOUSE HOTEL
On Friday evening I attended the newly refurbished gig room at the longest standing home of Live music in Scunthorpe. The Lincoln Imp has always hosted great live music for as long as I can remember but it’s new facelift it is bigger, better and well equipt to put on a show.
I was very impressed initially upon walking into the new gig room, the amount of space and the layout is just brilliant and hardly recognisable to the old gig room. The stage size has been increased and so has the audience’s space with the removal of the old sidebar, which was mostly unused. There is now a brand new bar around the corner from the stage away from the stage view so you don’t have people ordering drinks in your view. If you haven’t been to the Lincoln Imp for a gig since it’s refurb, please do check it out, you will be more than surprised.
This is the first gig I have been to since the refurbishment, although it wasn’t rammed full of people it was still a pleasant evening. I did miss the first support which was Lizzie Goddard but I have seen her a few times and she never disappoints her audience with her stunning voice and strong setlist of songs.
Years Young were the second main support, bringing a more heavy feel with lots of energy to the stage. Years Young are the newly formed band from former vocalist and former bass player from Ameira with two new members Ollie on drums and Danny on guitar. I’d say they have definitely got a bit more of a heavy influence than the more commercial sound they possessed as Ameira but in a way this is good as it means they have come away from what they were doing and are trying something new and finding their band’s sound. The boys have been busy recording at Peak studios and I think you can expect to see a music video very soon to accompany their first release.
Billy Bibby headlined the show, known as a “former member of Catfish & The Bottlemen”. Just himself and his acoustic guitar took to the stage and he performed some of his own songs and some well known covers throughout the hour. He is no doubt a talented guitarist making his electro acoustic sound full and some great vocals to match. He seemed rather reserved and shy on stage but it didn’t affect his performance, it was quite endearing really. You can catch Billy touring around the UK at a venue near you.
