Hello GoodBye Show info – Saturday 14th May 2011

Returning to the show once more are the scintillating London based trio The Wave Pictures, while making a debut on the show we also have Broken Shoulder.

The Wave Pictures are a prolific London based trio who play pop music that is infused with a healthy, heady rush of youthful abandon. Frontman David Tattershall has a distinctly idiosyncratic stream of consciousness quality to his lyrics that is both melodic and playful. The group conjure up a sound that is slightly reminiscent of the New York new wave scene of the late ‘70’s (with both early Television and Talking Heads springing to mind.) The band are currently undertaking a nationwide tour of the UK to promote their LP ‘Beer In The Breakers’ (Moshi Moshi)

Broken Shoulder is the aching pseudonym of Neil Debnam from Fighting Kites. Conceived when he was out of action with a broken shoulder, Debnam lent in the darker shade of his influences; electronic and noise records from the likes of Tim Hecker, Ashtray Navigations, Core Of The Coalman and a wealth of Japanese experimental/improvisational music (Chihei Hatakeyama, Taj Mahal Travellers, Himeno Sayaka). His debut LP “Broken Shoulderrr” (Audio Anti-Hero) is a Lo-Tron collection of noises, ditties and misplaced notes sewn together by fuzz and feedback. It’s a unique record that evolves with each listen and has a shelf life longer than UHT milk.
