Biography

Wobbly Lamps were born underground, in a pub basement. Disillusioned with much of modern life and the mundane mainstream, they got drunk and made music. After months of subterranean existence honing their sound, they left the basement, moved into the light to inflict their noise on an unsuspecting public. After a batch of gigs around their spawning ground of Southend-on-Sea they are quickly developing a following among fans of low end, lo-fi, trippy garage rock.


Support slots with Sic Alps and The Black Belles led to them headlining Thee Polyvinyl Craftsmen stage at the Village Green Festival in their hometown in June 2012.

Their first 7” single released in May 2012 featured 3 original songs full of piss and vinegar “Neon Tepee”, “She Wants Me Dead” and “Alice the Goon”. Influences include Country Teasers, The Fall, Billy Childish, Thee Oh Sees, The Clean, Real Estate, Comet Gain, Pavement, Mr Bungle, Mars Volta, Yo La Tengo and My Bloody Valentine. The band sound a bit like some of these and nothing at all like some of the others.

The Wobbly mantra is “Never Ever Bloody Anything Ever” which is also the title of the a-side of their second 7” EP “Drella” released in March 2013, b-side songs are “Haxan” and “Gretchen Fetchen”. All songs were written by the band.

Both singles picked up plenty of international airplay in the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Portugal, Greece and Japan. “Haxan” from the Drella EP was championed by Gideon Coe on BBC 6Music who has played it regularly.
