1. Pawns On The Fence
2. Ballad Of The Beauty Queen

Rotherham art-rockers The Tivoli are a band used to hard work, fitting their legendary live performances and recording in between various day and night jobs. Graft and grit has seen the band build a rock solid regional fan base and produce “National Service“, an album that embraces politics, war, debt and the burden of mundane jobs without losing sight of more passionate issues: violence, sex, and heartbreak. Unafraid to address the burdens of modern life, The Tivoli also offer defiance through music, through knowing your roots and, most importantly, through knowing how to have a good time.

This defiance comes from working with and not against cultural change in modern Britain and The Tivoli sound is a testament to the diversity of British culture, even in its smaller industrial towns. The effect of dance music’s impact on England’s sonic landscape is expertly illustrated on “Pawns on the Fence” while “Ballad Of The Beauty Queen” swings like the bastard son of late 60’s Brit rock. The Tivoli are a band inspired by the terraces, by small town struggles and wage slavery – but they go beyond these issues by conscientiously engaging and incorporating with what it means to be a conscript in modern Britain.

The Tivoli are: Lee McMahon (Vocals, Guitar); Damian Baughan (Lead Guitar); Gareth Eaton (Drums); Russell Frisby (Bass).
