Bambooooozled is the monthly Bull & Gate hoedown presented by those loafing gophers at fierce panda records. April sees the eighth Bamboooozled event sauntering towards us. This one looks suspiciously like this:
THE DYING SECONDS
The Dying Seconds began in 2007 as the recording project of David Cantan and Jack Quilligan. A critically acclaimed, eponymous, debut album under the belt they spent 2008-2009 earning their live spurs gigging around Ireland and the UK, including two appearances at Electric Picnic. Over that time things evolved from a two-men-and-their-laptops situation into a bombastic six-piece with trumpets, strings, synths, singing, guitars of various sorts, and lots of drums. The result is a maelstrom of joyful melancholy.
TRIM THE BARBER (onstage 9.30pm)
Trim The Barber are London based psychedelic-post-punk-shoegazers. A haunting combination of the melancholic style of The Cure, the spiky post-punk snarl of Wire and the considered sonic attitude of My Bloody Valentine. Lush musical euphoria with a directness of delivery. Formed from a sense of despair at the alienation and devolution of modern life, Trim the Barber's music features conscious lyrical themes of despondency and frustration with an existence in a decaying post-Millennial Britain.
EYES ON FILM (onstage 8.45pm)
THE DIAMOND NOISE (onstage 8pm)
The Diamond Noise mean it when they play live. Most bands in the post-naughties rock 'n' roll depression we are living in do not. Most bands prefer to stare awkwardly at their inward pointed feet, with their so called frontman hunched over his microphone, mumbling an incomprehensible drawl about love lost over yet another heavily synth-laden song with 'subtle' walls of noise. The Diamond Noise are different. They care. And they are doing things their own way. See for yourself.
