Adrian Utley, from Portishead, and John Parish, a long term collaborator of PJ Harvey, are joining forces to create a piece of music to celebrate the Trinity Centre’s rich musical history and importance to the city of Bristol. Proceeds from the new venture will go towards maintaining the building, a 187 year old Grade II Georgian church.
The venue needs to raise half a million pounds to carry out much needed repairs, and have devised a very simple but inventive way to do that. Anyone wanting to support the venue can ROOF31 £5 to 70070 to donate £5 (obviously). Every donation will be exchanged for a virtual music note, and when the appeal receives 4000 notes, Adrian and John will begin writing the ‘Trinity Anthem’.
The venue, which has hosted acts such as Joy Division, Nick Cave and Chrissie Hyde over it’s rich history, holds a special place for John: “Trinity’s been on the Bristol scene long as I’ve been living in Bristol… I remember from when I first went to gigs around the end of the 1970’s, not long after it became a venue…now my daughters are going to shows here.”
