ODD BOX Presents:
Now with added SPECIFIC HEATS from the USA making it 5 bands in 4 hours - get in early so you don't miss a trick!
FREE Indietracks warm-up show @ RoTa
THE MONORALS (Japan)
A Blast of Japanese Garage rock, tunes the size of mountains and what is sure to be a blast of energetic rock n roll. Over from Japan for this, The Monorals will BLOW you away. In Japan they've recently supported The Wedding Present! With releases on Cisumatiug Records in Japan and Odd Box Records in London!
One of London's finest indiepop bands have come a long way in a short time. They opened for The Pains of Being Pure at Heart @ the famous Lost Music show at the Buffalo Bar back in 2008 since then - with releases on Cloudberry Records and Underused Records - the band have honed their sound to a perfect blend of old school indie and top pop tunes. Their debut LP 'It'll Never Be The Same Again' was a wonderful blend of doomy indiepop recalling greats like Echo and the Bunnymen, The House of Love and The Jesus and Mary Chain. They've recently released a new record - the rather gorgeous 'Come Outside ep'.
THE SPECIFIC HEATS (USA)
Late edition to the bill are THE band of Indietracks 2009 - The Specific Heats! Yes!
The Sequins are a four piece indie-pop band based in Coventry, England. They make pop songs with guitars. Simple. With releases on Tough Love Records and Indie-MP3 Records - the band sound has developed over time and their ability to turn out twisted indiepop is not to be under estimated.
"If The Sequins was a place, it would surely be a land of magical enterprises; a spell-binding flurry of sparkle- located somewhere near to Narnia" - Music in Objectivity
SOCK PUPPETS (Denmark)
The Give It Ups (ODD BOX favourites) recomended Sock Puppets after playing with them in Denmark. And it's hard to disgaree with their recommendtaion - just listen to the ramshackle live takes on their My Space and fall in love with fuzzy guitar pop all over again.
Sockpuppets sound is an indiepop explosion of fun. I hear their live shows are something to be seen. So an opening band not to be missed.
Guest DJ: Paul from SCARED TO DANCE
