All the way from New York City, Underachievers bring you SCHWERVON! who we are completely convinced will be the next one in a line of great names to go down in Saki folklore. Touring here with their 4th album-, "Low Blow", musical partners aswell as romantic, Matt Roth and Nan Turner, are quite probably the most fun, explosive and interesting 2-piece around. Well, there is also an English counterpart that will no doubt give them a damn good run for their money and prove to be their perfect foil. This be The Lovely Eggs.
We'll let you decide for yourself anyways as to who wins the battle of the finest, frenetic cult 2 pieces. Both are playing for us at Saki on Tuesday. With local indie-pop pioneers Amida opening up. All for the advanced price of £5. £6 on the door.

"Like the White Stripes if they'd been raised on the records of '80s indie heroes The Wedding Present rather than Blind Willie McTell ones, New York boy/girl duo Schwervon! peddle a natty guitar drum rock'n'roll racket, substituting bass frequencies for gleeful indie pop aceness."
-James Jam, NME
PRESS ON NEW ALBUM 'LOW BLOW'
"Lower East Side couple-band Matt Roth (guitar) and Nan Turner (drums) make roughhewn, exposed-brick NYC indie rock with a freshly squeezed pop twist, their young life/ young heart songs drawing inspiration from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Pixies, the more twee side of Cibo Matto and beyond. The general rule of rock duos states that for a group to really explode,one member needs to be a brutal enough talent to igniteboth halves (White Stripes,etc.), but Turner and Roth seem to be enjoying themselves enough for three, and that is just fine, too." -AM New York
"Nice, simple, stripped down pop. Schwervon! is the New York-based duo consisting of Matt Roth and Nan Turner. These peppy, smart pop tunes sound pretty great...particularly when you consider the fact that these folks record their tunes in a small New York apartment. Low Blow is the duo's fourth release on the Olive Juice label. The album features simple rhythms, a loud fuzzy guitar, and both male and female lead vocals. Schwervon! tunes remind us a great deal of many of the odd, obscure underground pop bands that were treading around the United States in the early- to mid-1990s. This might better be labeled as minimalist pop because there is very little of the ultra-layering that usually litters twenty-first century pop. Plenty of groovy cuts here including "Dodger," "What We Talk About When We Don't Talk About Love," "Glasses On," and "Dogs for Hire. 5 out of 5"-LMNOP.com
