Blow Up continues its Friday residency in Soho at the legendary St Moritz Club with live guest Mignon.

Mignon - on stage 11pm (Mignon details below)

The basement club is one of the last 'original' venues in the West End, virtually unchanged since the 60s, and Blow Up kicked off it's new Friday night residency here in 2015.

Expect to hear classic tracks from both Blow Up's past and present: from Brit Pop era favourites (the scene which the club helped kick-start way back in 1993 in Camden Town) to the current new Pop & indie stylists putting the art back into pop colliding with 60's Soul, Beat, Garage, Funk, Ska, Swinging Soundtracks, Hammond Heavy Jazz, Easy Listening & Ye-Ye! Brit Pop, Glam & Post Punk / New Wave will all be present and correct.

Mignon's new Album Toy's Tantrum released February 9th2018, worldwide,
it leads the listener into a world of creepy toys, dreams and dolls, in an explosive package of Rock, Garage, Blues and Pop-Psychodelica.
From the feverish 60's-fuelled shakedown of 'Make Believe' and frenetic burn of 'Bulldog to the jubilant murder march of 'Fiesta' and hauntingly jaunty 'Ghost of a Memory' (featuring the one and only Adrian Strout of The Tiger Lillies on the singing saw), Toys Tantrum is a dreadfully addictive play date!
Other album guests include, Fredovitch from 'King Khan and the Shrines' on the Hammond Organ, the String Quartet most recently noted for their collaboration with Rufus Wainwright, Corwin Hambrick on bass/guitar and Mathias Brendel (Peaches) on Drums.
With the new Album Mignon evokes independent minds, to think for themselves and to question everything, believing in Utopia and Revolution. Rebellion against the Norm, the more people are free from religion, traditions and social pressure the more space they have to think for themselves. Mignon wants to empower the people who feel like they don't fit in, as weirdos and freaks can change the World.

Quotes and Pre-Listening Praises:

Dave Catching ( Eagles of Death Metal, Earthlings?, Masters of Reality, Mojave Lords)
Mignon delivers yet another lively album chocked full of fun, fresh, fantastic lyrics, hooks and melodies. Her incredible vocals are better than ever and the production is clean,clear and classic. It's a joy to listen to this timeless record!

Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Les Tigre, Julie Ruin): The album I've been waiting for! An upgraded version of garage music

Mark Moore (S-Express):
A new Mignon album is always a joy and this one especially so. A mutant -pop, swamp-rock, rocking-n-rolling concoction - thrown into a boiling pot and held together with Mignon's honeyed vocals. Quite delicious!

LA Record
Mignon fluently blends rock, electronica, pop and punk into music that is heartfelt and real. Everything about Mignon feels right. She rocks out, but doesn't try too hard to be something she is who you are, do what you want, find out what's cooking in the kitchen even if it is getting steamy

The Punksite
"With Toys Tantrum it would seem Mignon have released an album that blends everything you love about the punk, new wave, indie, rock 'n roll and the garage worlds to create a unique hybrid of styles that for me borders on perfection. Toys Tantrum is an album I'd recommend to anyone, but especially to fans of everyone from The Hillbilly Moon Explosion through to The Dresden Dolls, Nadine Shah and early Imelda May." AJ Phink
