Recommended Posts

hey guys

Two musical delights upcoming at Snafu on the 27th to round off whats been s great month of bands in the club!

JULY 27th

LUXURY CAR

Me (the geek) and little brother John (number 1 son) have been in bands together since we were at school. A long time. Too long.

We had been playing in mainly guitar bands since we were about 13 and have been making electronic music as Luxury Car since about 2002. The main aim of the band was to make electronic music based around melodies and songs written on guitar. Louise Healey played bass, trumpet and sang with us from 2002-2005.

The name Luxury Car is taken from the Vincent Gallo film "Buffalo '66". If you have seen it you'll know what bit I mean.

We play live all the time and have played all over Scotland in places like Twa Tams, King Tuts, Liquid Rooms, Stereo, Mono, 13th Note, Nice 'n' Sleazys, Bongo Club, The Tunnels and all the other places in between. And we have played with some good bands like The Delgados, Zoot Woman, Diefenbach, The Bays, Swimmer One, Reograd, Michael Rattray and hundreds of others.

Our debut EP came out last year - it got some very good press and loads of radioplay (Radio1, Radio Scotland, XFM, Beat 106, Radio Magnetic). We also recorded our first session for Vic Galloway's Radio1 show. We then did our first tour with Alamos and Le Reno Amps. And 'The Miracle Year' was used in a national TV, cinema and radio ad for Project Scotland.

Our album is finished and is out now.

Influences (not just bands we like, bands we think we sound a wee bit like at times)(kinda) Joy Division, Kraftwerk, Low, Pixies, Scott Walker, Talking Heads, Add N to (X), Flaming Lips, Cornelius, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Karl Bartos, The Knife, Sparks, etc, etc, etc,..............

NEIL MCSWEENEY

Hailing from Sheffield, songwriter Neil McSweeney writes, sings and performs all his own material, the very same that makes up his debut album, which was recorded with 'the Gents'; an amorphous group of local musicians who dropped in on the sessions for the record. Live, he appears both solo and with the Gents. The band line-up include members of Sheffield bands Rumpus and Baby Long Legs, Leeds stalwarts Scaramanga Six and ihop, the remix duo responsible for re-working the Long Blondes' single 'Separated by Motorways'.

Remember To Smile was released on 15th May. Tracks from the album have been played by Zane Lowe (Radio 1), Phil Jupitus (6 Music), Marc Riley (6 Music) as well as receiving airplay on XFM, Kerrang and several regional stations.

Neil will be reappearing at Snafu in September with The Gents, his band.
