MI AMI are San Francisco signees to Touch and Go records who are label
mates with the one and only CRYSTAL ANTLERS who we had down at
Retro Bar for their triumphant finale to their first ever european tour last
month. But Mi Ami are a powerful force, building on the promise of Black
Eyes' spastic energy and renowned live performances, but steering it into
a more focused, volatile, and personal direction. Mi Ami feature key
members of BLACK EYES and THE RAPTURE so should not be missed. Mi
Ami's first single on Touch & Go / Quarterstick, Echononecho, has been
released as a 12" and digitally on January 27, 2009, and the follow-up
full length, Watersports is now avaialble.

£5 adv from ticketline.co.uk, wegottickets.com
So this is going to be our first ever collaboration with our long time
promoter friends BAD UNCLE and boy are we looking forward to it! NLF3's
music has been described as "a kitsch This Heat" by The Wire, and
compared for its rhythms to a 2009 version of the Ege Bamayasi-era of
Can. The Guardian even spoke of them as "a Radiohead seduced by the
idea of live improvisation". The members of NLF3 - F.lor, Mitch and Don
Nino - name influences as varied as Pierre Henry, Fela Kuti, Steve Reich,
Ennio Moricone, as well as Syd Barrett, Zappa, Fantomas, Aphex Twin, and
Sonic Youth. Take a listen here to make a judgement for yourself -
Full line up to be completed very soon so stay in tuned!
See you all soon!!!
