I’m Not From London presents…
A Fuzzbox special at The Bodega – Sat 31st March
Feral garage-punk from the wild North Yorkshire Moors, hopped up on adrenalin and amphetamines. Their sound is intense and immediate, so new yet so familiar and brimming with an urgency that explodes off the stage like the front lines of a war you didn’t even realise was being fought. Every note played through white knuckles, every word spat through gritted teeth. The beats blast like cannons while the guitars stampede like spooked stallions surging ever onward, snorting, snarling and tearing apart everything in their path.
The past year has seen Avalanche Party tear away from the moors, raising venues all around the UK and Europe to the ground with intense live performances. Hotly tipped by many for big success the band has had heavy radio support, being championed by BBC Introducing, Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, 6Music’s Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson, Vic Galloway at BBC Scotland, John Kennedy at Radio X, Edith Bowman at Virgin Radio, Jim Gellatly, Amazing Radio and KCRW’s Jason Kramer in the USA. The band were also recently asked to record a live session for BBC 6Music.
An intensely busy year which has seen the band tour the UK constantly with numerous festival appearances including visceral performances at Reading & Leeds Festival, Y-Not Festival, Humber Street Sesh, Twisterella Festival, Stockton Calling amongst others and a European tour taking in Belgium, France, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Serbia.
“An absolute tour de force, their boundless energy and breathtaking performance truly sets them apart. By far one of the most thrilling bands you will see in the UK.” – Louder Than War Magazine
“Avalanche Party blast out sonic walls of psych-noise fuzz, in around three minutes that will knock you for six in the way that only someone who’s been floored in a boxing ring will understand the force of… Ones to watch in 2018” – Little Indie Blogs
‘TV Crime have the riffs, the bounce and the moves. The Nottingham four-piece bust out gnarly and melodic power punk like a defaulting candy machine spits gumballs. Songs like “Baby So Blue”, “Fake Tattoo” and “Wild One” are similar in style and delivery to the gritty power pop of Dublin’s The Number Ones and the Marked Men, Radioactivity and other bands associated with Texan punk king Mark Ryan.
Perhaps TV Crime’s poppiest track is “Hooligans”, a song that sounds as good in a Nottinghamshire pub as it would a Texas dive bar or a house party anywhere.
‘Having travelling through the richest and poorest parts of Asia to the soundtrack of bands such as Nirvana, The Mars Volta, Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine and Foals, it became apparent that there was a need to create music with a message. We observed a stark contrast between how happy the people in the east are compared to the western world. Free from our ideologies they rejoice in each other’s company. This is reflected in our whole ethos as a band; To not take things for granted, to push boundaries, to never be satisfied, to always move into the future, to sound like it would in Shinjuku’
