Scene Not Herd presents...
Le Tetsuo celebrate the release of their single with this super special release party at London's lovely Wilmington Arms.
Le Tetsuo met at art school in autumn 2002, and began having sweaty, drunken rehearsals. Their most noteworthy gigs have occured in the front rooms of house parties, where they play too loudly through small, broken amplifiers and fall over a lot.
In a nutshell, Le Tetsuo make noisy music that's based around Le Tigre-like screams and jutty guitar riffs that turn pretty vicious for a band from Norwich.
Colours are awesome. This two piece, originally hailing from Bournemouth, take some of the best bits from Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine and mix in sensible pop melodies to create a landscape awash with noise and colours (aptly enough). However, live is where this pair come into their forte. Catch them before they explode.
IMP play music that will make you happy. Sometimes reminiscent of a video game, its hard to define their music, as their songs seem to be inspired by everything from Daft Punk to Japanese culture. Sounding at times a little Ratatat-esque, this experimental lot know how to make perfect quirky pop songs.
They aint down in London too much, so catch IMP whilst you can!
