THE WAVE PICTURES
The Wave Pictures are David Tattersall, Franic Rozycki and Jonny “Huddersfield” Helm. Formed in 1998 when Franic and David lived in a village called Wymeswold, the band played with several drummers until Jonny became a permanent member in 2003 replacing Hugh J Noble. In the beginning the band learned to play together by covering Jonathan Richman songs but soon David was writing lots of original material. These songs along with a few covers comprise the albums More St. Less TV and Just Watch Your Friends Don’t Get You, which were recorded at home over two days, using an old tape four-track. Following unsuccessful attempts to record in a studio with an unsympathetic producer, the band continued to record at home to keep a track of David’s prolific output. These recordings formed the next three albums The Airplanes At Brescia, The Hawaiian Open Mic Night and Sophie.
They have since released five studio albums to critical acclaim and played numerous sessions on BBC 6 Music, Radio 1 and Xfm. The interest generated by these recordings has enabled The Wave Pictures to play shows all over the world with artists including Jeffrey Lewis, Darren Hayman, Stanley Brinks, Freschard and Herman Dune. Coming off the back of a UK tour with residencies in Brighton, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle and York, their new album is released in October on Moshi Moshi Records.
The proceeds of this show will be going to the Jason Molina medical fund. More on The Songs of Jason Molina at http://thesongsofjasonmolina.bandcamp.com/
