As part of our summer-tastic festivities indoors, we've teamed up with our buddies This Is Music & Rough Trade to put on a show in a deliberately mysterious warehouse on Hackney Road.
THE STRANGE BOYS: A really exciting new band over from the States here. Spawn of Austin, Texas, this quartet of young reprobates are a Screaming Jay Hawkins of Hillbilly Bop, booty shaking Rhythm & Blues and new-wave rock n roll. The sound of a young adulthood spent in bars living like people who've lived their whole lives in 'em. We've given them quite a lot of attention on the site already here (see recent interview and Sounds on the Ground piece) , and they’ve recently been signed to the ever-excellent Rough Trade Records in the UK (and In the Red in the States). http://www.myspaec.com/thestrangeboys
MALE BONDING: - Hoxton heroes and one of the capital's newest and finest, this turbocharged trio from East London play dynamite lo-fi noise-pop and recently signed to the grand 'ole Sub pop in the ‘States. High energy, fun filled, tropical inspired punk pop, perfect for summer smash hits.
Keep those ears peeled as there's more to be announced. In addition, DJs from Rockfeedback, No Pain In Pop, Lovvers, Pinglewood and This Is Music will be tag teaming to bring the Wednesday night summer party big.
DEEP SHT: - A minimal rock band from London, signed to the lofi hero-makers that are London's No Pain In Pop records, they combine the thrashy indie rock of the Television Personalities with the space-y spook-pop of Young Marble Giants and Joy Division.
