FREE FRIDAYS: ADVENTURES IN THE BEETROOT FIELD PRESENTS…
Nice Nice play an advance show ahead of their European Warp20 tour in December. Having just been signed to WARP records, Nice Nice have this to say about their live shows: “a big part of what makes our live show engaging is the “freakshow” factor of watching us build the loops live and interact on top, hopefully the intensity of the recorded music compensates for that. We hope people will hear the record and think “that was a trip, I want to experience that live” – and we hope that it will blow a few minds“. And we can’t wait.
Wonderswan was conceived early in 2008 in a dark, damp basement in Leeds and incubated in a warm pouch by the radiant glow of a shared love for scuzzy 90s lo-fi slacker bands. The fledgling creature hatched in April with the addition of drummer G.E.D who heard the youngster crying out with hunger as he floated by attached to some helium balloons. With the additional nourishment of his frantic c86 style drummings, Wonderswan quickly matured and soon found itself performing alongside some of its own favourite bands, including Times New Viking, No Age, Copy Haho and Lovvers to name just a few.
Tennessee’s Turbo Fruits strike a balance between dirty garage and surf-style rock. It’s almost like hearing the Beach Boys drown in an ocean of distortion with trippy riffs turned up to eleven.
