Leg Guitar and Tuckshop Community Radio present…
Straight from the streets of LA, Cobalt Cranes suck in their surroundings of sun, sand and silicone and bash it impeccably together with loud, garage psychedelica. Sleazy, brash and full of good old-fashioned rock n’ roll they write music for all the badass kids in town.
Joe Innes is a modern Anti folk superhero straight from a Stan Lee comic, who scours the urban streets of London telling tales and blessing our stereos. Armed with just his guitar and an observant mind, Joe Innes sings about all the things that fill our lives – beautiful or mundane.
The Annoying Lobsters
Hailing from Denmark, The Annoying Lobsters are jam packed with youthful exuberance. They strum their guitars, smack their drums and holler down the microphone, collectively producing a slightly off kilter, but note perfect Scandinavian guitar pop record.
Manchester’s finest eccentric, fuzzy guitar-pop trio laugh in the face of traditional musical boundaries. TLOBF describe them as making ‘harmonically beautiful but rhythmically scrappy songs that flit between Great Eastern-era Delgados and Jetplane Landing’. High praise indeed.
Lilies On Mars
Live, this London (via Canada and Sardinia) three-piece are a formidable presence; on record, they possess a breadth and depth that way surpasses their ‘experimental shoegaze’ tag. Following strong reviews for recent long-player ‘Wish You Were A Pony’ in both Rolling Stone and Uncut, Lisa, Marina and Matthew are on the road to greatness. What the world’s been waiting for.
LEG GUITAR v TUCKSHOP: EP CLUB (Vol.1) will be a digital-only release, available from http://lgvtepclub.bandcamp.com/
Come down to our launch night! 09/09/11 at the Betsey Trotwood, London EC1. Featuring performances from Joe Innes, Burning Buildings and Lilies On Mars http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=158701447539681
