#BADFRIDAY BBQ all-dayer with Peluché, Dead Coast, Les Sueques, Calva Louise, Cobalt Chapel, Flights of Helios, Videocean...
Easter Bank Holiday all-dayer #BADFRIDAY is back with a stellar line-up and the sublime Peluché in the headline spot! As usual, the sumptuous BBQ is included in the ticket cost.
London three piece Peluché deliver a stunningly vibrant mix of tropicalia, soul and post-punk. Recent EP ‘Utopia Village’ garnered much praise with Line of Best Fit describing it as an "ambitious odyssey with abstract shards of sound jutting out at odd angles".
“This London trio mix up dub, funk and pop in idiosyncratic but infectious ways” - The Guardian
“the sound of a band totally at home with its edgy, if suitably classic, sound” - London In Stereo
Les sueques is a post-punk / indie-pop band from Barcelona, the name means Swedish Girls in Catalan which is a coincidence as they remind me of the much missed part-Swedish band Envelopes. They feature Blanca Lamar (bass & vocals), Tuixén Benet (guitar & vocals), Raquel Tomàs (keyboards) and Pau Albà (drums).
“dark pop reminiscent of '80s and '90s riot grrrl and indie groups” - TimeOut
Calva Louise fuse surfy riffs to fuzzy grunge pop. They’ve been heavily tipped as one of the 'Bands to watch in 2017' and called 'the greatest indie rock band around right now' by The Metro. Having toured with Spring King they’re really making a name for themselves.
"Not only are they near-impossibly tight while taking most of their cues from fast-tempo US punk (think Dead Kennedys rather than Ramones), frontwoman Jess Allanic’s surf-rock guitar solos are pin-precise." - DIY Mag
Psychedelic band featuring Cecilia Fage (Matt Berry & The Maypoles) and Jarrod Gosling (I Monster, Regal Worm). Based in London and Sheffield, they made their dynamic live debut at Festival No. 6 last year and released well received eponymous debut album in February this year.
“delicate filigree… juxtaposed with propulsive and hypnotic rhythms, old school psych freak-outs” ... "This rich offering stakes an early claim for album of the year" 5/5 - Shindig
“An eerie piece of Brit-folk” - The Times
“Wonderful and Atmospheric” 8/10 – Uncut
Following a YouTube comment ‘the girls are great. get rid of hairy guys”, those hairy guys decided to form the band Videocean. Despite being new arrivals the band have already shared the stage with BBC Sound of 2017 act The Amazons, performed at Blogtober and are booked to play Margate Wonderland with The Kills.
“...it certainly felt like we were listening to a band that have found their feet very early on in their formation, and a quartet that have a real potential to grow." - Turtle Tempo
Flights of Helios (Oxford)
Oxford space-pop/shoegaze quintet Flights of Helios combine spiralling, caustic electronica with reverb-drenched post-rock guitar drones and heart-stopping vocals. Flights of Helios have played Glastonbury (BBC Introducing), Artrocker New Blood, Wilderness and Truck festivals. Single Factory has been played on 6Music (Steve Lamaqc), XFM (John Kennedy) and Amazing Radio (Simon Raymonde).
"A brilliant melange of catchy vocal lines and droning, grunge fuzz" - The Line of Best Fit
Vibrant young band from Camden that are just starting out featuring Claudia Vulliamy, Esther Pigney & Arla Albertine.
Plus more acts to be announced soon!
Brixton Windmill, Blenheim Gardens, SW2 5EU London
