Clash Club is back with a bang! We are itching to announce our big name headliner (Brit and Mercury Award nominated) for the club’s 2008 relaunch on the occasion of their highly anticipated second album release – but for now it’s a secret. All will be revealed this week!
Bands that we can confirm for the show, happening Saturday 5th April at London’s 93 Feet East venue, are Liverpool’s Hot Club De Paris and London nine piece The Bookhouse Boys.
Having previously hosted such amazing acts as The View, Supergrass, The Kooks, The Fratellis, Pete And The Pirates, The Rumble Strips, Midlake and many more stellar acts, Clash Club continues its reputation for putting on some of the hottest big name bands of the moment accompanied by our renowned Ones To Watch choices, and in the process throwing the best party in town!
Starting as we mean to carry on, the event takes place at 93 Feet East in London, the new home of Clash Club since leaving The Luminaire in Kilburn, and comes amidst a very exciting and transitional period of Clash.
Clash Magazine, the award winning music and fashion bible, has just relaunched as a monthly title, doubling our frequency to bring you even more essential artists and incomparable music coverage.
Running alongside its sister publication is ClashMusic.com – the rapidly burgeoning online companion, full of exclusive downloads, features, podcasts, photos, videos and so much more.
The Clash Club legacy is also further extending into great live events, tour partnerships and festival collaborations. Only this month the team were out in Texas, staging a Clash showcase at the industry-led South By South West festival, which witnessed a sold-out success that presented Noah And The Whale, Make Model, Peggy Sue And The Pirates, The Pigeon Detectives, and Carbon/Silicon, the pioneering new project from The Clash’s Mick Jones.
Heading the relaunched club night is a top secret headliner, whose identity will be revealed imminently. Rest assured the Brit and Mercury Award nominated band are gonna be worth the wait. With them on the evening are:
Hot Club De Paris
The Liverpool signings to uber hip Moshi Moshi records provide unsteady rhythms and visceral pop songs filtered through a punk attitude and steeped in electronic inclinations. The trio know how to impress, and following a sell-out Clash-endorsed homecoming show last year, we once again ask them to dazzle our loyal customers.
The Bookhouse Boys
Named after a secret society from Twin Peaks, this London nine (yes, nine!) piece certainly have their share of surreptitious methods – how they ever managed to forge flamenco, Morricone, Muse and Kylie Minogue into a single and uniquely searing sound is something we may never learn.
Do not miss out on what is set to be another gem in the Clash crown.
