After being finalists in Glastonbury’s emerging talent competition and capturing the attention of festival organiser Michael Eavis, The Black Tambourines bring their anarchic take on garage rock to Sticky Mikes Frog Bar. Hailing from Falmouth in Cornwall, their spot by the sea has clearly had an influence on their music, causing their reverb laden garage rock to turn into their own brand of ‘beach punk’. With a back catalogue ranging from numerous of EP’s and their Debut album (that was released last year), The Black Tambourines will promise to put on a truly electrifying set. As well as providing the audience of Sticky mikes a night of dirty riffs and fast paced choruses, they are also letting anyone into the gig without having to pay a penny as part of their tour of free shows across Britain. Songs such as the frantic I Wanna Stay Away will provide a suitable soundtrack for any mosh pit and if the brutal riffing of A Lot Of Friends doesn’t get the crowd bouncing not much else will. With songs reminiscent of garage rock pioneers such as The Black Lips and Ty Segall, The Black Tambourines are without a doubt one of the most exciting up-and-coming bands in their respective scene.
The Black Tambourines play Sticky Mikes Frog Bar on 30/11/14, free entry.
