The new venture from musician Ian Black, Slug takes to Soup Kitchen in support of debut album 'Ripe'.

Slug is the new venture from Ian Black, an individual who has been on the North East music circuit for over a decade and whose recent outing was spurred on after playing with Sunderland band Field Music.

Slug's debut album 'Ripe' takes influences from everywhere, including move soundtracks, Led Zep-era rock, the funk of Prince and Funkadelic, abstract and minimalist sounds of the twentieth century, among many others.

Support comes from Salford's Trojan Horse.
