A shimmering furnace of rock and roll with a rip-roaring live set by the 'surfabilly Clash,' the SILVER BRAZILIANS, high energy circus with the ten-piece ORCHESTRA PIROUETTE, plus massive line up of DJs onboard, original videos, street photo slideshows and more.
THE SILVER BRAZILIANS 11.45pm
2010 has seen The Silver Brazilians make their first foray into Europe with dates in Germany and Sweden so far and support slots with the likes of The Godfathers, The Jim Jones Revue, The Blockheads and Wilko Johnson - and now for the third time they’re back at The Offline Club in Brixton!
In the three short years since their live debut supporting The Charlatans in the summer of 2007 they’ve headlined the Strummerville Foundation for New Music event in Hollywood California, released three E.P’s and had their song Kate Winslet deemed 'Coolest song in the world' by Springsteen guitarist and Sopranos star Little Steven Van Zandt on his New York radio show Little Steven’s Underground Garage.
By the time they make their hat trick appearance at the Offline Club on Friday the 10th of December the SB's will have included the 100 Club to their conquests, a live session for BBC Introducing and a new single – the title of which will probably get it banned from everywhere.
'Like early Dr Feelgood' (u75)
'A surfabilly Clash...'(NME)
'Rocking 50's rhythms with 60's beat sensibilities...' (Shindig!)
'A lovely cracking little band' (Andrew Loog Oldham)
'Shades of Lennon's amphetamine loaded Hamburg period' (The Boiler Room)
Formed from a meeting of French and British musicians in a small English Touring Circus, this cross channel collective combines French Brass Fanfare, Ska, Raggae, Balkan, Afro Beat and song. Balancing musical virtuosity with high energy circus, you can expect a feast for your ears and eyes!
Original photos, old footage, pop 45 sleeves, and more.
We'll also have a full crew of hard-drinking Offline regulars throwing down a top selection of tunes, including:
LANG & LOPEZ (The Actionettes)
A glorious celebration of 50s, 60s, Motown and obscure dance tunes from the Actionettes' very own Glamour Queens of Vintage Vinyl.
An ale-fuelled onslaught of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, rockabilly, Mrs Mills & Liberace in a floor stomping package proving that drinking'n'DJing can be a perilous trade.
NIPSLA (Falling over studios)
Packing more pop than a Rice Krispies factory, Nipsla's DJ bag is a veritable jumble sale of joy, overflowing with indie, dance, electro and party tunes.
BARON BOBBY BAUHAUS (charcoal soul)
More mysterious than Robert Smith's eyeliner bag, Bobby gets dancefloors rocking with quirky, darkside indie-pop and kohl-smudging breakbeats.
