On Saturday February 22nd, WagonWheel Presents… has a mighty triple bill lined up at Shakespeares. Offering a heady mix of garage rock, country soul, punk and much more shot through with trademark heart-on-sleeve songwriting we have Dave Woodcock & The Dead Comedians. There’ll be the only man ever to try and change the world using only a guitar, a harmonica and a maraca stuck in his shoe in Joe Solo, and from the West Coast via West Yorkshire bringing home the heartland rock are the Coma Girls. Advance tickets priced at £4 are available from or entry on the night will be £5. Doors open 8pm.



Described by Americana UK as “The next big thing from Sheffield”, Dave Woodcock & The Dead Comedians are currently at work on the follow up to their 2011 album “Poisoned Nights & Bar Room Nights”. They deliver booze soaked rock ‘n’ roll echoing Springsteen, Strummer and with a nod towards the likes of The Hold Steady.

***JOE SOLO***


Joe Solo has in his time been a busker, a barman, a kerb counter, a warehouse hand, a copywriter and an engineer. His musical odyssey began in 1987 fronting a bash-em-out band at school, and has seen him play in seven countries either as lynchpin of pop-punk upstarts Lithium Joe, or hammering out his unique brand of folk, punk and blues in his own right.

On top of releasing ten albums in the last eight years, Solo has written a book, and had one written about him; runs a research project on the Hull Pals Battalions in the First World War which he updates daily online; worked with underprivileged children to help them write their lives in song; recorded two audio books; and still found time to open for the likes of Chris Wood, Otis Gibbs, Robb Johnson, Edgar Broughton, TV Smith, Justin Sullivan, Emily Portman and The Blockheads; whilst his songs have featured on Mike Harding’s Folk and Roots Show on BBC Radio Two.

Live, Solo has a growing reputation as both a performer and raconteur, being thought-provoking, comical and punch-the-air political often in the same breath. He is not an artist you forget in a hurry.

2014 sees Joe release brand new album No Pasaran!

Not only is that bloke a really remarkable singer and songwriter, but I think he has a really amazing attitude and we’ll see a lot more from him in the futureMike Harding, BBC Radio 2

You can’t get this massive three piece Heartland Rock band in any store; kick back with the best; Get Coma Girls now with just five easy payments of 29.99. Order now and we’ll send you this great “Coma Girls Slow Jamz” collection for free! 24 original hits by the original artists! Coma Girls; this is the music what will live on forever! It’s West Coast via West Yorkshire. Think Springsteen, Baseball, Tom Petty, the Superbowl.

The Coma Girls, our headliners for the night, are not girls in fact they are a bunch of fellas. Leading in with a very Rolling Stones sounding song about a train with added wooh wooohs it sounds like they’ve borrowed something from Sympathy from the Devil. As their set continues there’s a notable Americana influence from Neil Young, Tom Petty and even The Boss. It’s energetic, entertaining and a great end to a very enjoyable eveningCounterfeit Magazine
