Judge Trev Thoms was a Brighton-based guitarist, singer and songwriter. He was, with ex-Hawkwind’s Nik Turner, a founding member of the band Inner City Unit, releasing several albums in the early 80s. He went on to form Atomgods, featuring ex-Damned Algy Ward on bass, later with Steve Pond on bass and also MOAB (Mother of All Bands) with another ex-Hawkwinder Ron Tree. In 2006 he reformed Inner City Unit, with Nik Turner. Judge Trev had previously worked with such luminaries as Graham Bond, Gregory Isaacs and Steve Gibbons, and a key member of Steve Peregrin Took's band Steve Took's Horns. He also played on Hawkwind’s vocalist and wordsmith Robert Calvert’s solo album ‘Freq’.

Trev ran the Real Festival Music website, and was a founding member of the Real Music Club.

In 2002 Judge Trev brought out his own solo album, ‘God and Man’ which he described as "Doom/Space/Folk" to some great reviews including Jerry Kranitz from Aural Innovations:

“…In summary, God and Man really took me by surprise. Here's a guy who can do Space, Punk and thumping Metal, but is equally adept at writing and playing a good folk, ballad and love song with sensitive and poignant lyrics.
Take a chance and check it out…..” HERE

Sadly in July 2010, Judge Trev was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and he passed away in that December. Trev is much missed here on the Brighton scene, and on the UK festival scene where he played extensively around the country.

Tonight’s gig in memory of Judge Trev will feature the legendary Nik Turner’s New Space Ritual, Dubbal, Dirty Scavenger, and Gregg & Kev.

Nik Turner’s New Space Ritual

some text

This year Nik brings his New Space Ritual to the Real Music Club.

Nik Turner is known as a powerful creative force behind Hawkwind. His brand new outfit promises to weld together the veteran musician’s wisdom and musical knowledge with a younger, more dynamic band that will explore Turner’s musical history.

The SPACE RITUAL are Nik Turner (vocals, sax, flute), Mark Smart (drums), Stephen Jones (guitar), Gary Smart, [bass], Nigel Alien [DikMikator, Delatron, Tri-wave- Genitilaria), and the Fab Miss Angel (dance).

The current SPACE☆RITUAL was formed 2001, through the psychic need to unite the Tribes to power the Starship to new dimens inions of time, space and awareness, raising the spirits in harmony in brotherly love, reviving the lost magic, lost music, lost flames, one soul, one world, one source, one race, one love, be there or be square.

The band play modern spacey/ rocky/ jazzy/ dancey/ science/fictional/ fantasy/ spiritual , funky music, to heal and raise spirits, consciousness and awareness, promoting communication and good times, getting high, using multimedia sound/light/visual imagery to create extremely wild, whacky weirdness in mind boggling/blowing experience, each performance truly a happening.

The SPACE☆RITUAL have played many prestigious festivals in Britain and abroad including Glastonbury, Wickerman, Guilfest, Weyfest, and at many prestigious venues including Brixton Academy, London Astoria and many awesome appearances in the Outer Galaxies, various manifestations in the Milky Way and Xibalba and many others to ecstatic crowds of many faceted sentient beings.

Their recent album Otherworld (Esoteric Recordings, ECLEC2011) was received with acclamation, and they are currently in the studio recording a new album to be released later this year. Watch this space, we are not alone.

Dirty Scavanger

some text

Dirty Scavenger spent her late teenage years living on the streets, scavenging for food using music, & developing her vocal, guitar & song writing skills.

Dirty Scavenger's music is dark, raw, and full of angst. Influenced by Jo's many life experiences and by some of the greatest rock bands of all time, she writes songs with dark melodic guitar riffs and deep and meaningful, soulful lyrics, and conveys them with precision on the guitar and powerful raw vocals. Described by many as mesmerizing to watch.

Gregg and Kev and very very guests (Judge Trev tribute set)

some text

Trev’s old musical pals Gregg McKella and Kev Ellis are getting together again for a Trev inspired set of acoustic numbers.

Aside of Inner City Unit, Judge Trev played with Kev as 'Trev & Kev' (with Gregg occasionally making up as the third member of this space country and doom folk duo). They will play tracks from Judge Trev's God & Man album and some Trev written ICU classics.

They always invite some special guests who have included Dino Ferari, Martin Litmus, Steve Pond, Si Deards, the late great Mark Reiser, Matthew Wright and Kozmik Ken (with a buckets on their heads) and of course Nik Turner…
Expect special guests and banter!
