Bonding over a mutual distaste for musical sterility and an inclination toward the more exciting and dangerous end of modern music, Acoustic Ladyland have been blowing minds since their inception in 2001. The band is Pete Wareham (saxophone), the recently-joined Chris Sharkey (guitar) Ruth Goller (bass) and Sebastian Rochford (drums).

This fresh incarnation of Acoustic Ladyland sets the bar even higher than before and has arguably achieved their most potent and lucid album to date, the long-awaited Living With A Tiger (out July 6th 2009). Their previous three albums have won them a host of awards and critical acclaim, so if thats anything to go by, this brand-new music should go down a storm.

Recently, individual band members have recorded and performed with an enormous array of artists, including Supergrass, Brian Eno, David Byrne, Polar Bear, Trio VD, Jack De Johnette, Basquiat Strings and Dennis Hopper Choppers along with various other writing and recording projects.

With their legion of fans including discerning types like Scott Walker, Chris Morris and the Mighty Boosh, experiencing Acoustic Ladyland live is not to be missed.

Acoustic Ladyland return with a ferocious, slash-and-burn, minimalist sound that already makes this a contender for alt. jazz album of the year. (***** TIME OUT)

A ferociously good third setsounds like a group cranked up on crystal meth. (**** MOJO)

"The latest incarnation of this tremendous, unpindownable London band puts together the visceral immediacy of punk and the chops and creativity of jazz quite unlike anyone else." (**** THE GUARDIAN)

"Acoustic Ladyland perform with a vigour that makes the sacking of Rome seem like a mild civic disturbance." (**** THE TIMES)

Is it jazz? Is It punk? Who knows, and indeed, who cares? Living With A Tiger sees them in rampant form. (NME)

Theres nothing ladylike or acoustic about Londons ferocious, experimental jazz-punk-rock collectivea vital, vocal-less roar of a record which sounds like jazz done by Jack White. (**** LONDON LITE)

Lets hear it for Living With A Tiger, which makes a point of scrambling everybodys tastes (**** OMM)

Living With A Tiger turns hostile territory into refreshing enjoyment (*** Q)



Zippy, Stu and David are your new favourite mindie-rockers - influenced by Fugazi, Pavement and Shellac.
