Wobbly Lamps - Wobbly Lamps
Limited edition of only 250 7‰ EPs. The debut record by Wobbly Lamps is the first release on Polyvinyl Craftsmen Records (an independent DIY label set up by the team behind the Polyvinyl Craftsmen podcasts).
Wobbly Lamps were born underground, in a pub basement. Disillusioned with much of modern life and the mundane mainstream, they got drunk and made music. After months of subterranean existence honing their sound, they left the basement, moved into the light to inflict their noise on an unsuspecting public. After a batch of gigs around their spawning ground of Southend-on-Sea they are quickly developing a following among fans of low end, lo-fi, trippy garage rock.
Support slots with Sic Alps and The Black Belles led to them headlining Thee Polyvinyl Craftsmen stage at the Village Green Festival in their hometown in June.
The single features 3 original songs full of piss and vinegar ‰ÛÏNeon Tepee‰, ‰ÛÏShe Wants Me Dead‰ and ‰ÛÏAlice the Goon‰. Influences include Country Teasers, The Fall, Billy Childish, Thee Oh Sees, The Clean, Real Estate, Comet Gain, Pavement, Mr Bungle, Mars Volta, Yo La Tengo and My Bloody Valentine. The band sound a bit like some of these and nothing at all like some of the others. The Wobbly mantra is ‰ÛÏNever Ever Bloody Anything Ever‰.
