After a sold out Scala show earlier this year Fence Collective founder KING CREOSOTE plays his biggest show to date at the Shepherd Bush Empire in support of his brilliant and critically acclaimed album “KC Rules OK”.
KING CREOSOTE’s live show sees him bring together a live band as he plays a set of extraordinarily touching, funny, sad, poignant, heartbreaking and downright beautiful songs.
One of the loveliest albums we’ve heard all year – NME KC slways casts himself as an outsider but on the basis of this wonderful record, it’s time he came in from the cold – Metro Therapy for the ears – The Independent Gorgeous songwriting – Sunday Times
Much like fellow Twickenham residents Mystery Jets, Larrikin Love have succeeded in creating their own starry-eyed world, full of poetry, medieval notions of rowdy entertainment and unashamed peculiarity. Taking cues from bands such as The Clash and The Libertines LARRIKIN LOVE, deliver a live set of their melodic folk inflicted ‘jaunty’ indie anthems.
Larrikin Love are an indisputably classic English indie band, with all the wonderfulness and strangeness that goes with it. The Guardian
Sweden’s PETER, BJORN AND JOHN play uplifting pop songs, complete with a whistled refrain that’ll stick in your head for days (believe me!) Their sound is as playful and flitty as it’s well-crafted and intelligent. As befits an erstwhile librarian, a jazz drummer and an established record producer, the sound skips across folk, punk and skinny-assed funk with a Beta Band-ish randomness belying a tangible pop nous underneath.
Their live set sees them deliver urging and funky drums, maracas, crazy bongos, lo-fi bass, and a whistling melody that sounds like a mix of a wild – west b-movie and the schoolyard. Peculiar, catchy, Scando-Pop!
It’s an irresistible slice of indiepop that somehow combines whistling, bongos and the lugubrious voice of the Concretes’ Victoria Bergsman to produce something fit for both sunshine and gloom… The Guardian
Singer and front man of mercury nominated Hot Chip ALEXIS TAYLOR (HOT CHIP) plays a rare solo live set of his own songs as he combines subtle pop melodies with folk esque quirkiness…
