Paul Middleton's Angst Band represent a lifetime of fury, love, loss and joy condensed into a single, breathtaking live music experience. A survivor of 70s prog explorers Wally, Paul Middleton combines the raw musical passion of his acoustic and lap steel guitar playing with intelligent, intensely personal lyrics. With a vocal nod to Howling Wolf and Captain Beefheart Paul weaves songs and stories that are at once imaginative and honest, rich in experience and awash with a wry sense of humour.

The worldly wit and wisdom of Mr. Middleton is backed up by his erstwhile lieutenants and young Turks, The Angst Band and their eclectic blend of blues-rock, folk, punk and soul. The blistering fretwork of guitarist Darren Ibbotson is matched only by his ear for musical subtlety and nuance, whilst Matt Evens enhances this rich dynamic with lush keyboards and exotic xylosynth to create vibrant, intricate melodies. John Davey's fluid and powerful bass ebbs and flows beneath, pushing both the groove and the mood of the songs. The whole thing is underpinned by the rock-steady rhythms and inventive percussive flair of drummer Adam Westerman.

From Yorkshire towns to French villages, by way of numerous festivals - including Glastonbury in 2011 - Paul Middleton's Angst Band perform songs for those who've ever fought until their knuckles are bloody or wept alone in a corner, for those who've ever had a job or lost one, for those who've lost love only to find it again. In other words, a song for almost everyone, because, after all is said and done, we're only human you know.
