New Weird Nottingham and Three Cheers proudly present San Francisco's NODZZZ along with LOVVERS and TEEN SHEIKS...
NODZZZ - http://www.myspace.com/nodzzz
NODZZZ are Sean Paul on guitar, Anthony Atlas on guitar, and Eric Butterworth on drums, with Pete Hilton as forever auxiliary drummer, now stationed in Bulgaria in the service of the Peace Corps. They’re sweet dudes with an even sweeter sound, first honed on a killer single called “I Don’t Wanna (Smoke Marijuana)” b/w “We Are the Only Animals,” released on Eric’s Make a Mess imprint. Barely three minutes long, each side tore the face off of the last days of 2007, revealing a candy skeleton that had the Modern Lovers’ teeth marks in it.
The group’s self-titled debut LP released on What's Your Rupture? is a grower, with ten new songs in a markedly more pop direction. You can hear the simple American pleasures of baseball, road trips and late summer plain as day within this record. More specifically, you can hear three guys examining where punk became something more, between notions of power pop and advanced songwriting on the Embarrassment/Big Dipper/Pointed Sticks axis, but with the economy of the Minutemen or Beat Happening. They’re in and out before you know it, having firmly planted the seeds of catchy melodies between your ears.
'Nodzzz is, finally, the ultimate fuck you to the aging process, a glorious embrace of sugar rushes and wide-eyed enthusiasm.' - cokemachineglow.com
LOVVERS - http://www.myspace.com/letscommunicate
Hometown heroes return after 2nd US tour to celebrate the release of their debut LP OCD GO GO GO GIRLS. Expect even more jiving than at Weirdapalooza.
TEEN SHEIKHS - http://www.myspace.com/proteensheikhs
Brighton dudes creating upbeat, deep fuzz, shoe-gaze indie that packs a bit more punch than the likes of Crystal Stilts. If Wavves covered a Shop Assistants track, you'd be around the right mark. Awesome!!
