16 Jun

We are delighted to announce that Oh! Gun Quit will be performing at St. Moritz for the Friday Night Whoopee

oh-gun-quit-june

‘Oh! Gunquit are a London based Rumble Bop Trash Blitz Voodoo band who concoct a brew of Surf, Exotica, Garagepunk, and Twisted Freak-a-Billy. Their unique show is a blur of Horns, Hula Hoops, and rock’n’roll fun. Lead Singer Tina Bopper bawls, grinds, and plays trumpet with added Hula like a tranced out she-devil, Simonte twangs guitar & growls with glorious abandon, Dr Zoom blasts his honking sax & doubles on bass, and Tico-Tico rumbles the voodoo toms toms,They formed the band around the idea of creating a new brew of 50’s R&B, 60’s Psych/Garage, & 70’s Punk music into something fresh and vibrant. Their are named in part to a town in Maine US which was an Artists Colony in the 1800’s originally coined by the Abenaki Indians and also named in part to the idea of all guns quitting. With songs about Peeping Toms, She-Wolfs, & Cindy’s Tiger, they urge you to escape and join them on a cool ride to anywhere’

They have released two 7″ singles through Rough Trade which have had much play on BBC 6 and 2nd single being ‘single of the week’ in Artrocker. Live the band have played at many events/festivals all over UK and in Europe including Field Day, Offset, Hop Farm, and FarmFestivals. Also shows in Amsterdam, Berlin, Belgium, & a tour of Portugal. Recently supporting King Khan and Andrew Weatherall at a sold out XOYO & have a residency at the Blues Kitchen (Camden), gigs with Dirty Water Records, and very recently played the afterparty for the Winter Shuffle Film Festival with Jarvis Cocker & Nicholas Roeg. Their track ‘Bad Bad Milk’ has recently been featured & released in Japan on a compilation of UK garage rocknroll bands and OGQ this year also recorded a live session on the legendary Resonance FM radio station. The band are currently booked at East London studios Gizzard to record their 1st Album starting in Feb 2014.

Oh! Gunquit are that rare breed of band that make you want to dance, just as they’ve barely begun to play: tribal tom toms beat wildly, fingers snap, guitars twang while high-spirited vocals bawl and purr across each song with attitude. One listen and you’re transported into a world of B-movies, grindhouse, killers and adventuring.

After the Band have finished Samantha Pink Panther and Robert Paul (Severed Limb) will take to the decks to play an ever eclectic bag of vinyl.

At the beginning of this month we hosted a Pancake Party in association with Home Spun Sessions to help raise funds for The Big Issue Foundation.

This post is to thank all involved and to let you all know that we raised £187.50 which is almost the average cost of an outcome for a big issue  vendor and so could help move someone on into housing, support them to get into college or employment. It’s only a small amount raised but to think that having such an enjoyable night because of time, money and talent donated by those in a position to do so could help turn a life around, makes it very special indeed.

 

I would like to thank Nic Hilman and Moira Hornik and Ram (The Floripa Chef) for there pancake cooking expertise and Sainsburys in Whitechaple (1 Cambridge Heath Rd, London E1 5SD) and The Co-op (Old Street 185 Old St, London EC1V 9NP) who both donated £10 towards the ingredients used to make the pancakes. Thank you to Whom By Fire and Severed Limb who both gave merchandise towards the raffle and played blinding sets for our entertainment for the night and Simon Landin of Home Spun Sessions who, played some amazing vinyl and made sure as ever that the sound was spot on.  Thank you also to Floripa and all the staff.

And lastly, Thank you to you all who came and supported the cause. We had tremendous fun! We’ll be doing it all again next year.
