[GIG] Miss The Occupier + Lorenzo Snow Collective + Kartta @ The Moorings Bar

Recommended Posts

www.myspace.com/misstheoccupier

Forming in Glasgow in 2003, Miss The Occupier came from the shared influences of itchy punk-pop and nervy indie-rock. Sticking to the three-piece ethic of small is good, songs are punchy, pacy and generally loud.

Miss The Occupier have been touring about, supporting The Grates in London, and playing with a cascade of great local bands all over Glasgow and Scotland.

The first release came in 2006 with a split seven inch with FreezerBurn on Skribble Records. The next single is coming soon, and the album will follow...

Miss the Occupier are an indie-punk three-piece who take angular guitar riffs, fuzz them up until they're a suitably deafening din, and set them alongside the sardonic musings of singer Roz Davies. It's like being stomped in the face by The Fall's stroppy younger sister, and enjoying it just a little bit too much for your own good.

"The songs blast Sister-era Sonic Youth through ace girl group melodies... it's basically off centre pop music with sharp, muscular angles. And it's sexy as fuck to boot." Stewart Gardiner, Plan B magazine

"With vibrant red hair to match the surrounding decor, Miss The Occupier have in Roz Davies a striking front person - a punk princess. Spiky pop blasts at us with every synchronized pressing of foot pedals, magnus matching Roz's bass with powerful guitar whilst Derek thrashes with controlled destruction behind..."Mark Connelly, Is This Music? Magazine

We are three men from the cold and grey city of Aberdeen who write cinematic country tinged slices of music mainly about pain, loneliness and despair. But its not all fun and games - we also have a dark side.

If all our failed dreams were personified we would be the leaders of a formibable army. We have made an ep called Beware the Swords. You can buy it at our gigs - each copy is individually hand-made and unique. Its pretty good.

Scary but true - I went to High School with Roz from Miss The Occupier, and failed to notice it was her during all the times I saw Josephine live.

I'm Mr. Unobservant.

Lions? Hamsters? Bring back the posters with unfeasibly breasted women. And space monsters. And stuff.

well, y'see, to be fair, it's a co-promo and i didn't know at the time how much money miss the occupier were getting paid, so i wasn't sure what the price would be.... :gringo:

i'm still not sure what we're paying them, but i reckon it'll be the usual £3. any more, and it's not worth all the complaints :)

Loverly

Looking forward to seeing Lorenzo on the moorings stage, their sound has been expanding and expanding greatly of late and a tighter stage should be good. They are another example of a trio knowing, experientially, dynamics and tune smithery.

Oh, and Roz from Miss the Occupier pleases my eyes! Much more so than the beady chap from LSC... :love:
