Beans On Toast – 3/12/15
3rd December 2015
Jay McAllister, a.k.a Beans on Toast, is back with a new tour and a new album. He’ll be dropping into Patterns, Brighton on the 3rd of December, with his usual mix of humour, insight and tub-thumping sing alongs.
Ten years in the game and Beans has built up something of an underground following around the world, and is now ramming out festival fields and tents on the UK circuit and constantly touring new and foreign lands. This year alone he’s played shows on rooftops in Cape Town, tropical islands in the Barbados, folk festivals in Canada and covered over 10,000 miles in the USA. He has, of course, got songs all about these travels.
“Cult legend and all round hero” – Louder than War
Rolling Up The Hill, the new Beans on Toast album, is his most creative record to date and it’s an album all about friendship, travel and art. It’s also about drinking, protesting and growing older in these strange modern times.
Recorded in Kansas, the record features long-term partner in crime Bobby Banjo, on harp and banjo. Throw in a couple of Kansas players dropping in some horns and some drums and you’ve got a Beans on Toast album that is fresh, fun and exciting whilst at the same time not losing any of Beans on Toast’s original cheap and easy English attitude that has got him to where he is today.
