As part of Eastbourne Music Live, Music’s Not Dead from Bexhill and Pebble Records have teamed up to put on a night of music at the Under Ground Theatre.
The Wave Pictures, with support from And Now The Weather, will play on Thursday July 16 - tickets £8 available from either of the music stores or the venue.
The Wave Pictures are on tour with latest album Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon, which was co-written and produced by artist, musician and poet Billy Childish. The Wave Pictures trio - Jonny Helm, Dave Tattersall and Franic Rozycki - over the years have worked as backing band to artists such as Daniel Johnston, Stanley Brinks and Darren Hayman. Having formed when Dave and Franic were teenagers they have been prolific, with Dave writing so many songs that the band made at least one album every year since they moved to London in 2006. Their varied discography captures a range of styles and influences, from garage rock to afro-pop to country punk, all recorded live with few overdubs. They never use keyboards or guitar effects pedals yet they have all they need to create the perfect rock and roll record.
Billy Childish helped to bring out a different side to The Wave Pictures and Tattersall said: “He was a joy to work with and we love the record. It was the most fun we’ve ever had making a record and to us it’s the most exciting sounding thing we’ve ever done.”
