THE RUMBLESTRIPS@ SNAFU - DHC Thursday 10th AUGUST - 10pm

Recommended Posts

hey guys

DHC and Snafu are proud to present...

Thursday 10th August

THE RUMBLESTRIPS

"Together, they conjure a timeless rush of sax and trumpet, pounding piano and drums, and sweet melody. The quality of the songs speak for themselves, but in Charlie, the band have a singer with a voice that will become synonymous with hairs raised down the back of many a neck for years to come.

And what songs they are. The sound of wide-eyed yearning, life-affirming choruses all awash with the optimism of youth. The superb, entwining musicianship of the unit is complimented by Charlie; wry lyrical observations; at times wistful and romantic, but always packed with colourful imagery and sharp humour.

Chosen launchpad for the outfit, Transgressive Records have in the space of just one year established themselves as the hottest label around for launching acclaimed new talent (Battle, The Young Knives, Regina Spektor, Ladyfuzz, Mystery Jets, The Subways, not to mention prior ties via Tim Dellow; former indie start-up Trash Aesthetics, which spawned first releases from The Rakes and Bloc Party).

The band have recently signed to Island Records, with an EP out October 2nd The album will follow in early 2007."

Rumblestrips were ace, i bought 2 seven inch's. Thought the sound was rubbish though, would have prefered to have seen them in a better venue. Thought the little kicks were very poor, especially considering their reputation.

Good night though.

Little Kicks were good last night. A few mistakes and they never seemed to hit top gear but it was a solid set. Much like our quiz performance beforehand really...

Strangely, during the little kicks set, there was a blonde girl standing behind me who started dancing at one point then bumped into me. She apologised, then a few seconds later got her friend to take a picture of her standing beside me. I don't suppose anyone knows what that was all about do they? Confused the hell out of me.

I agree with that review totally.We never really got into gear last night.Was a strange one.Still we have tonight and tomorrow to up our game before our london town gigs next week.

As for the girl, that sounds like a friend of mine.Will ask her if they know anything.

Last night was good fun.
