New Shows: Just Confirmed

Sic Alps + supports Aug 21st Sun - The Basement York, 8pm £6

This heavily sixties influenced lo-fi trio have been waking ears up of late. Releasing records on Drag City and Siltbreeze and touring America with Sonic Youth would usually do the trick! It's all warranted of course. Their short, often garage-y or blues tinged pop songs can be beautifully languid or abrasively electrifying. Highly recommended.

Tellison + supports Oct 17th Mon - Stereo York, more details to be confirmed....

There are four of them. They are boys. They play Fender Telecasters and Jazz Basses and Gibson Melody Makers and 1960s Ludwig drums. They care a lot and practice a lot. They met during an earthquake on the Isle of Arran. Arran is one of Scotland's most southerly islands and sits in the Firth of Clyde between Ayrshire and Kintyre. Arran is 19 miles long by 10 miles wide but has a remarkable diversity of landscapes and seascapes. Tellison have released one album and several singles, they've been a Myspace Recommended Artist twice, featured on the first two seasons of Channel 4's "The Inbetweeners" and their most recent single reached no. 4 in the independent music chart. Meanwhile they've toured relentlessly and without cease and shared stages with bands like Biffy Clyro, Noah and the Whale, Tubelord, Hot Club de Paris, Johnny Foreigner and many many more.
