Wawawow @ The Town Hall, 22nd Feb

SHOW NOTES “Wawawow do it like no-one else. The new LP is mad enough, but the live show is – perhaps unbelievably – even more insane. One long, unbroken stream of consciousness made into crazed future-psych, it’s like an adrenalin shot to the eyeball, or electrodes to the temples. Crazed, brilliant, unique.” LEARN MORE Facebook […]

This is driving, thumping, clever, sharply-tailored, and instantly danceable stuff.” LEARN MORE Facebook | Instagram Subscribe to The Underground Stage Playlist Thirty […]

Goodnight Japan @ Oxford Art Factory, 21st Feb

SHOW NOTES “Goodnight Japan are *all* business – this set has got so many rich and complex moving parts it’s hard to pin it down. Still, while idiots like us are busy trying to pin it all down, this set’s cheerfully running us all over with a tank full of exquisitely crafted, intelligently written songs. […]
