Leamington Spa has something for all the family!

As a Leamingtonian bred, not born unfortunately, but I lived a vast majority of my youth hanging about in the Royal Priors and smoking and drinking 20/20 down at the band stand, I feel it is my duty to bring to your attention a few of the musical delights which the town has given birth to and which will be sure to wet your appetite.

For an Amuse-Bouche we have Post War Years, who with a sumptuous concoction of live guitars, electronic blips ‘n’ samples and a healthy set of drums they produce sparklingly energetic catchy tunes that will get stuck in you teeth for days.  I brought their album, you should have. Do it now.

Then for our starter may I serve you Lucien Digwell.  A Long while back I ran a Hip Hop night at the infamous Sugar now know as Smack. On one occasion I had an open mic night providing upcoming lyricists a place they could spit at each other whilst I span instrumentals. I remember vividly Digwell ruling said night. Turns out he now produces PHat beats aswell, who’d have thunk it! May I suggest Seasons with a sprinkling of Everything. Big up.

For main course we have a marvelous helping of People Persons.  A smorgasbord of sounds and personalities that have been intelligently blended together to produce tracks which will definitely have you coming back for seconds. I have been lucky enough to have been acquainted with these guys through various projects for a while now and feel it is my obligation to let y’all know they are playing tonight at Water Rats in shiny shiny London town, so all you Londoners get your shiny asses down there and give some shiny support. Shiny.

P.s. LWAPD’s very own ‘Base Player. Cable layer. Knows all the words to “Livin’ on a Prayer” is a member of PP. Fact.

And if you still have room may I offer you some dessert, if not then find some space because you do not want to miss out.

I serve to you the Mysterons (cream/ice cream on the side).

Although I don’t know them personally I have been told many a tale of how they have taken apart old Xboxes and various other electronic stuffs and made sounds with them that Aphex couldn’t even have dreamed up.  The production on these guys tracks is mouth wateringly juicy, and you will be scraping the bowl leaving nothing but a clean spoon and the call for a long lie down / head nodding session.
