The Metatrons + Tim Holehouse & the Escape Ghosts
The Metatrons are a delightfully fuzzy Riot-Pop band all the way from Hitchin. After signing to Chapter 22 Records in 2019 they released their "Deconstruction" album, which was a fantastic critical success, being called "The pinnacle of quality pop" and "a thunderous slice of pop majesty". Vive le Rock said the album was "bursting with bright, breezy driving rhythms...you should hear them" The band toured the album, opening for Altered Images on their UK tour in 2022 to add to the already impressive list of great bands they've worked with - Shonen Knife, Echobelly, The Primitives, Dodgy, The Blockheads, The Darling Buds, The Membranes, Steve Craddock and Glen Matlock to name but a few. 2023 had more more great shows and a summer full of festival appearances, just as they released their 4th album "Lumination" on Chapter 22 Records in June.
Global touring musician, Tim Holehouse brings experimental sounds. For the past 16 years, Tim has been one of the most hard working in the industry, travelling the globe, touring throughout the UK, US, Canada Europe, and beyond. His touring adventures have brought influences to his sound today. Tim leads somewhat of a nomadic existence, but for all intents and purposes, treats London as his home when not out playing his trade to international and domestic audiences. He is equally prolific with his recording as he is with his travels, when not gigging his way round the world, he has found the time to release 20 albums and countless split releases, often with artists he tours with. Tim's own sound is hugely varied, he’s often able to adapt to performing sets depending on the atmosphere of a show. He has been known to release folk, blues, experimental music and covers many other genres. Tim's songs come from a place of honesty and a keen ear for anything creative regardless of genre. His own philosophy is that, 'if music is good, it's just good, right?' To get a feel for Tim's wide and varied talent, be sure to check out his eclectic sounds and as Tim often quotes from one of his favourite films, 'Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure': 'Be excellent to each other.”
