The final show of the season before deXter Bentley lopes off for a dose of sea-salt and ice cream!!!
Today’s live musical excursions navigate through absurdist-punk reverie with Chips For The Poor via translucent folk-poppery from Haiku Salut.
The sound of broke Britain, Chips for the Poor return to Borough High St for a live session today. A mere two years on from their previous single, the notorious 22 minute I am a Warrior and six months after their Live From Downtown Transmissions album (of original broadcasts on Resonance FM), their new single and terrace anthem Fistula is currently spinning loud on the turntables of psychotic Dutchmen the world over. Described variously as “the sound of two worlds colliding”, “beautiful”, “incendiary vocal cool tropical punk guitar”, “infectious inventive melodies and dirty tones” and “two one agitator spicy feeling” by various tastemakers and trendsetters, Chips are hunkering down in this age of austerity and aiming for number 1. Expect tight but loose sounds and probably songs they haven’t finished writing yet.
“Haiku Salut are a Derbyshire-based instrumental trio that use accordions, ukeleles, glockenspiels, pianos, loopery and laptopery to create a soundscape that has been likened to early múm, Detektivbyrån and the soundtrack to Amélie.
“How We Got Along After The Yarn Bomb” is the band’s debut EP and was released on Team Strike Force! in August 2011. They are currently working on their debut album “Tricolour” which is set to be released later in the year by London based label How Does it Feel to be Loved. In anticipation of it’s release they are embarking on an eight date UK tour in July – go to haikusalut.com for details.
Tune in between noon and 1.30pm on 104.4 FM in central London or on-line via:www.resonancefm.com
