Goodnight Lenin are a West Coast Americana five-piece who formed in the West Midlands in 2011. An independent outfit with an old school attitude to music, the band celebrate the DIY ethic of the late 80s / early 90s grunge approach and combine with influences including Neil Young, Jonathan Wilson, Phosphorescent and Wilco.
Goodnight Lenin have released two singles and two EPs, all of which sold out of their limited physical run upon release. The band have played over 60 festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival and Green Man and have been on tour with Dry The River, First Aid Kit, Stornoway and Beth Jeans Houghton.
In April 2014 Goodnight Lenin completed their Record Store Day project, for which they recorded, mixed and mastered two Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young covers (Almost Cut My Hair and Helpless) between Birmingham's analogue Highbury and digital Artisan Audio studios, in just 24 hours. These were released in a super limited run of 24 7" records which sold out on the day.
