My love of slightly left of sanity videos continues apace. We nearly had them play once (I’ve got a contract and everything) but alas it was not to be! So here’s that new promo to make us yearn for loves labours lost or something.
Shabazz Palaces have a new video. Premiered by them lovely chaps over at Pitchfork. They were responsible for one of the best shows we had last year.
Between the bands this week we’ve Gracie Djing. To mark the occasion she’s made a chart for us. Lots of links to YouTube videos. One day I’[ll make your lives easier with a playlist. Not yet though.
We’ve got Hooded Fang over for their first UK show. Seems like this one’s getting played a bunch on the radio so here you go. Have a listen, buy some tickets, come out and have a dance.
Also playing are locals Citizens! and from the USA Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.:
Dj ing early on this Tuesday is Gemma K-Tep. She’s not really called that – I think I sort of invented the ‘K-Tep’ part but I’m going to stick with it. Here’s an idea of what she’ll be playing.
- King Khan Experience – Hey Rudi
- Surf Punks – Ballroom Blitz
- Elvis Presley – Adam and Evil
- The Strange Boys – Omnia Boa
- The Jacuzzi Boys – Coral Girls – They’re Playing for us end of March!
- The Growlers – Empty bones
- Shannon & The Clams – The Cult Song
- White Fence – The Love Between
- Tame impala – Half Full Glass of Wine
- Chapter 24 – Hepcats
Speak of Mogwai and their label, Rock Action, appears. Here’s the [mad] new video from [mostly] instrumental Scots legends Errors. Hopefully be seeing plenty of them live in 2012 what with a new album and all.
The inevitable PS: They played for us years and years ago supporting none other than British Sea Power at the White Heat / Rough Trade Records Christmas party at Madame JoJo’s. BSP blew up three out of four monitors. It was a good show.
I put these guys on at the Lexington last year with help from them nice chaps over at the Line of Best Fit. Amazing band from Denmark & they’re back with a new album (released on Blood and Biscuits. Think Sigur Ros, Mogwai, quiet-loud sorta thing. The video’s AMAZING too.
Hopefully we’ll manage to get them on at White Heat later in the year.
Just re-found this Liars interview from when they played for us. Was obviously nice to have the BBC down to do some filming too.
