Neds to headline celebration of Stourbridge musical heritage.

 

We're delighted to announce that Stourbridge indie rock heroes Ned's Atomic Dustbin will play a headline gig at Stourbridge Town Hall as part of a new event called One Heart One Way.

 

One Heart One Way has been the motto emblazoned on Stourbridge's civic heraldry since 1917 and it speaks of a single-minded purpose that has characterised so many aspects of the town's history ever since, not least its musical heritage.

 

Stourbridge is a small town with a big heart and a strong, determined way!

 

One Heart One Way is a new all-day event, centred around Stourbridge Town Hall, co-ordinated by Dudley Borough Halls in collaboration with neighbouring venues and businesses, to celebrate the immense influence of music in the town, past and present. The event hopes to inspire a fresh wave of engagement in music lovers and players.

 

Founding members of 90s chart regulars Pop Will Eat Itself and The Wonder Stuff formed their bands from the pot-boiler of creativity powered by Stourbridge Art College at the time, inspiring Ned's Atomic Dustbin members from across the Black Country to meet, mingle and emerge from the pubs of Stourbridge, to play on airwaves and stages across the world.

 

Ned's singer, Jonn Penney, said:

 

"In terms of musical output and impact, Stourbridge is the mouse that roared!

 

"In the 90s, when our band broke through on the tails of Pop Will Eat Itself and The Wonder Stuff, the town was a crucible of creativity. I'd like to think that it still can be, if people feel engaged in a creative community.

 

"I wanted to get the ball rolling. I decided that sometimes you have to put your money where your mouth is, so here we are coming back to Stourbridge, where it all started, to shake things up again!"

 

Also as part of the all-day event Claptrap The Venue, an independent music venue in the town, will be taking over the Wollaston Studio at Stourbridge Town Hall to showcase local musical talent, with Claptrap on Tour. Keep your eyes peeled for further news on that.

 

Sean Lloyd, co-owner of Claptrap The Venue, said:

 

"The One Heart One Way motto signifies working together towards a shared goal.

 

"What better way for Claptrap The Venue to work together with the Town Hall than to set-up shop within its walls, and to have even more bands playing, on the same day, under the same roof!"

 

Support acts for the Ned's show, as well as a host of other events in the town, will be announced in the coming weeks.
