Friday 31st July - WINDMILL, BRIXTON - Philadelphia Main Line + The Tailors + The Little Black Hearts + Baracas
BACKSTREETS CLUB...now into its twelfth night, Backstreets continues to serve up sweaty, booze-friendly sounds to often packed houses.
PHILADELPHIA MAINLINE (London)
This two-piece features the talented Christian Muncey (whose brother happens to be in a little known Aussie band called JET!) on guitar and Matt Veal on drums. A band that mixes the raw energy of the White Stripes to the ballsiest, bluesiest and dirtiest ballads that Tom Waits might conjure up after a particularly violent drinking session. These guys reached the final of the Red Stripes New Music Awards in May playing to a packed Kentish Town Forum.
Alternative music bible, The Stool Pigeon is a big fan stating that 'the band employ the most rudimentary of guitar lines to weave their Holy Golighty-ish R&B menace with a 13th Elevators spin.'
THE TAILORS (London)
A joyful celebration of people who are flawed and broken and lost and blue, The Tailors draw from elements of folk, garage-rock and the soulful pop of 70's AM country radio whilst mixing the outsider weirdness of bands like the Silver Jews with the country-tinged powerpop of early Wilco. Their debut album 'Wakey Wakey' got great reviews across the board and they will be presenting songs from their soon to be released follow-up.
'the best country-tinged indie-pop since the Lemonheads' - Maverick magazine
THE LITTLE BLACK HEARTS (Leeds)
........ play ‘Sexy Blues Rock & Roll’, a sound that's heavy, bass-lead, but with melodies that create a sound to make you shiver, producing racy rock that reverberates through you and grabs you by the scruff of your neck. With hints of desert style rock, grinding riffs and deep beats the sound is unapologetic.
Straight down the line good time rock and roll from this London based band featuring the drummer from Will and the People. Fans of AC/DC and Led Zeppelin won't be disappointed from this band who are currently recording their debut EP.
+ Backstreets' now infamous drunken DJs until late.
