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.

NEW SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT!
(EX-Catfish & the Bottlemen)
“Made in Lancashire and raised in the Welsh seaside resort of Llandudno.
Billy Bibby’s voice has all the traditions of a Lancashire hotpot churned together with the excitement of a trip to the beach. Possessing powerful melodic pipes and a set of songs to match. Bibby prides himself on making those records that everyday people will understand and resonate with. Influences from such greats as Elvis Presley, Noel Gallagher and Mark Knopfler most prominent but not defining on his singing and song writing style. Previous work consists of being one of the founding members of hugely popular Catfish and the Bottlemen.
Having toured extensively with them (Catfish) as lead guitarist over the past 7 years Billy is no stranger to the stage and is now looking to furrow his own way back to where he belongs. A live acoustic act with a bright future.”

North East indie five-piece, led by former Sunderland pub landlord Frankie Francis, who formed over a mutual love of the Housemartins and the Smiths. Think of these classic bands, combined with influences ranging from Orange Juice to Dexys Midnight Runners, Bobby Conn and Billy Childish, then add the Sunderland accents of the Futureheads or Maximo Park. Finally, complete with a hair quiff modelled on James Dean, some quivering hips and a gyrating bottom, and you’ve got The Heartstrings.
The Silence are a five-piece pop/rock band hailing from the North East of England.
The five quickly found their feet in the pop/rock domain. After touring Europe, Florida and the UK a number of times, it was time to begin writing a debut album, and so the band locked themselves away for seven months, before heading to London to record with Matt O’Grady (You Me At Six, Architects, Deaf Havana).
After releasing standout track Barriers as the first single from the O’Grady EP This Wilderness, guitarists Guy Taylor and Nathan Keightley were brought on board to give the band the dynamic of two guitars and complete the line up.
A five piece pop punk / rock band from Yorkshire whose influences include The Offspring, Blink 182 and Asking Alexandria.
A three piece band who are mainly influenced by the sounds of post-punk/cold wave and indie from 1978 – 1984 and the 90s American ‘Grunge’ and punk scenes.
Imagine David Bowie and Iggy Pop’s Berlin years mixed with a dash of Bolan glam, the disparate sound of Joy Division and early Cure, the energy and darkness of 90s ‘Grunge’ with the melodies of Martin L Gore and power of The Chameleons and Echo & the Bunnymen – this is Luxury Stranger.
