/// THE LINE-UP ///
Culling influences from jazz cats and art rockers, B-movies and trash television, via Lynch and Tarantino, Late TV are the moonlighting house band for a surreal all-night dream club where the intangible dance floor shifts and folds to become the set piece of a talk show beamed onto the farthest reaches of your channel selector.
James Brute writes spooked out songs of love, loss and lust and delivers them in a heady mix of acid blues, doom-wop and rock n’roll.
The former front man of The Brute Chorus released the a cappella single Bury Yourself in 2014 with long-term collaborator Mat Martin. The single got picked up by John Kennedy on XFM and garnered a range of press including the NME. Shows followed in support of Nadine Shah, Kingsley Chapman and the Murder, John J Presley, Furs and Big Girls alongside legendary basement parties in Homerton under the old Railroad Café.
As the sound became more expansive he began to build his band, now featuring Dave Ferrett (Bass, Vocals & Percussion), Johnny Manning (Keyboards and percussion) and Findlay William Brown (Drums).
“…a must see for anyone with a hankering for bleak-abilly blues.” – NME
A new band. Soundscapes, immersion, installations, soundtracks, no rules.
THE FALLEN SKY
Drawing influence from the dream-like, distortion-laden shoegaze bands of the 90’s… atmospheric and melodic, and harking to the etherial soundscapes of David Lynch.
