Music lovers are being invited to be part of a ‘live’ album recording at the Wiltshire Music Centre this month.

Billie Bottle’s Temple of Shibboleth are bringing their Mending Tour to the Bradford on Avon venue on Friday, April 28 and plan to record the live concert.

The tour is promoting the release of their debut album, released worldwide on double vinyl and digital download on March 31.

It is produced by George Shilling, who has previously worked with pop groups Blur and Primal Scream and Icelandic singer/songwriter Bjork.

The Temple band are an all-woman five-piece based in Devon, who blend mythic prog/ jazz with pop melodies. They have been described by All About Jazz as “vigorous and unequivocally hip”.

The show combines art-rock with melodic grooves and is a really different experience that tells the story of The Week. How we cope with the world as it is today, practically, soulfully and with humour.

Billie Bottle’s previous band, The Multiple, are well known on the progressive rock scene and this line-up adds two new members.

Billie sings and plays piano and keyboards and is joined by Viv Goodwin-Darke on flute and vocals, Roz Harding on alto sax, Anna Batson on bassoon and Emma Holbrook on drums.

With Billie, Viv also plays flute and sings for The Invisible Opera Company of Tibet, the tending of a vision sown with cult 70s band Gong. She was also a key member of psychedelic rock band, Magic Bus.

With Billie, Roz Harding has a long working relationship with avant-garde legends, Kate and Mike Westbrook.

People may also remember Billie from her surreal appearance on The Voice in 2015, performing a memorably stripped-down version of Snap’s classic rave anthem.

Between them all, they have played Ronnie Scotts, London Jazz Festival, The Jazz Cafe, King’s Place, Camden People’s Theatre, Teatro Rossini, Vortex Jazz Club and Halle Women in Jazz Festival.

Their music has been played on Jazz FM and BBC 6 Music and live on air for BBC Radio 3 (Late Junction and In Tune) and BBC Radio 4.

The night will also feature folktronica duo, Solarference, comprising singers and sound artists Nic Janaway and Sarah Owen, who perform a genre-defying mix of live electronics and traditional folk.

The concert starts at 7pm. Tickets at £22 each (£12 concessions) are available from
