FREE ENTRY - Join us for an evening of the finest Synthpop sounds in South East London and beyond!

Rodney Cromwell
Rodney Cromwell, Catford’s only exponent of indie pound-shop synthpop, evocative sound looks to the proto-electronica of the 70’s and 80’s to construct a twisted soundtrack for the post-truth world. Sonically his music sits somewhere between Kraftwerk, New Order and The Cure, and contemporary synth acts such as Black Marble and Advisory Circle.

Rodney Cromwell is the project of Adam C Cresswell founder member of folktronica band SALOON who were John Peel darlings; they recorded three Peel Sessions, had four Festive 50 hits including the number one in 2002 and released three albums on Track & Field (UK) and Darla Records (US). He followed Saloon with Arthur and Martha the acclaimed tweetronica duo as featured by The Guardian, NME, Artrocker and others.

If pop stars, razors and even sausage rolls can attach themselves to important movements, why can't Jayde Adams?
