    “What happens when you write a song after drinking a bottle of Sailor Jerry, stagger into an all night tattoo parlor and leave with a topless girl in a martini glass etched over your heart” – N.M.E

    “Swinging beats tinged with rockabilly riffs and moody Orbison-esque vocals” – I.D

    “Harnessing the menacing narrative prowess of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, the angular guitars and Melancholic ghostliness of early Echo & The Bunnymen.” – Drowned in Sound



    Since starting this project in the summer of 2013, Billy has toured Germany four times, played at Glastonbury Festival in 2014 & 2015 & opened for interesting & idiosyncratic acts such as Piney Gir, James Apollo, Flipron & Le Skeleton Band.

    Muertos, Marine, Bat & Ball, National Service

    Fri 7 Apr

    7:45 pm


    Paper Dress Presents an evening of wonderful live music from our unique shop window stage in Hackney Central. On Friday 7 April we welcome…


    Muertos take their influences from the darker end of the freakbeat and garage psych genres, delivering pulsating rhythms, swathing guitar drones and haunting harmonies.

    “Muertos sound like they’d burst into flames if they set foot in a church” (The Zine)


    Marine grew in the gaps between the concrete of the city, with four very different stories they hoped to combine uniquely into just one, where all they had listened to overlapped. Intuitive beats that make you want to move, bass hypnosis in the undercurrent playfully countering melody, and with a deep love of contrast, two vocals which braid together over hooky guitar lines into a complex plait of old and new, understated and operatic, light and dark.

    “Submerging ethereal vocals and gentle guitars in an ocean of space.” NME

    “A soulful, powerful blend of understated but intricate guitar parts and dexterously interwoven vocals, which will tickle the fancies of Daughter and Warpaint fans.” (Drunken Werewolf)

    “Its instantly apparent how beautiful a collaboration Marine are; dreamy, rich, robust vocals… It’s the musical equivalent of a creamy post-coital blush.” (Line of Best fit)

    BAT & BALL


    National Service are a four piece from London who make tense, tersely modern alt.rock which nods at the buoyancy of Wild Beasts and Radiohead and bursts into manic sonic life at the most unexpected moments.

    We’re running this event on a ‘Pay What You Want’ / Donations basis on the door – If you want to read more about why we’re doing that then have a quick read here: http://paperdressvintage.co.uk/live-music-manifesto
