Newcastle’s Beth Jeans Houghton is a fascinating and rare artist. Not just a rock star, she’s also a producer, songwriter and video director. With her second album Welcome Back To Milk (her first as Du Blonde) she emerged as a glammed-up, thrilling garage rock star. Then her third album, this year’s Lung Bread for Daddy, saw her return as her truest self. It was a brilliant but emotionally brutal album – confessional and cathartic lyrics were backed by a riotous mix of punk, blues, garage rock, and soul. It’s a record that pairs despair and unrequited yearning with swaggering, heart-on-sleeve rock music and live she is just as captivating. We can’t wait to have her back at End of The Road.
