THE LOVES ?
Legendary psych-pop collective from Cardiff, who fuse Nuggets-style garage pop, bubblegum fuzz, sugar sweet indiepop, and hand-clapping, hip-shaking rock'n'roll. Favourites of Marc Riley and John Peel, for whom they recorded four sessions, including one live at Peel Acres, the band are fronted by Simon Love, whose "did-he-really-just-say-that?" style of stagecraft is entertainment itself. The band are currently working on their fourth LP for Fortuna POP!
'A wide-eyed retro-chic indie-pop sextet that sound like The Monkees playing at being The Velvet Underground.' – (NME) ?
The Tamborines are a fuzz rock band consisting of core members Lulu Grave (Keyboards, Percussion) and Henrique Laurindo (Guitar, Vocals). They have been rapidly gaining acclaim throughout London with their mind-blowing, tripped-out live shows. Raised on a diet of underground indie, Bergman movies, and distorted guitars, The Tamborines combine their daydreaming sound with an art aesthetic that blends West Coast psychedelia with the noir of The Velvet Underground. The result is jangly guitar pop and hypnotic hazy retro organ with almost unsettling undertones. They are currently recording their debut album, following on from their critically acclaimed Sally O’Gannon and 31st Floor singles.
“Insanely catchy chorus + INCREDIBLY LOUD GUITARS = perfect pop music” (NME)
THE VINYL STITCHES
Occasionally London throws up a 60s-style primitive rock band that you simply can’t ignore. The Vinyl Stitches are such a band. These individuals have only garage on their mind and fuzz in their lustful hearts. The Stitches recreate that infectious sound when young Americans came out of their sleepy towns high on illicit substances and set about changing the world with the 4/4 beat. Employing a heady mix of The Stooges, 13th Floor Elevators, and The Velvet Underground, not to mention a splash of Jesus & Mary Chain and The Cramps, they create an orgy of foot-stomping noise to soundtrack an imaginary psych-ploitation film.
“The Vinyl Stitches sound like tripped-out-beatniks recently released on-parole from a 40-plus-year incarceration inside of Lux n’ Poison Ivy’s basement” (Losing Today)
