Le Beat Bespoke
4- Easter 2008
21/22/23 March 2008
Now in its fourth
glorious year, the wildest weekender in the World returns to
London this Easter Bank Holiday with its best bill yet. Yes,
coinciding with the release of his new mix album, 'Le Beat Bespoke
3' (Circle Records), our host Rob Bailey and the NUT's team are
throwing another 3-day global bash, tailor-made for all lovers of
the '60s underground and far beyond.
This time they've
really outdone themselves, managing to snare the first-ever
European appearance by first-wave 1960s garage legends
The Sonics. The
wildest, dirtiest, rawest band to emerge from mid-�60s America,
The Sonics reformed in New York last year, playing together for
the first time in 40 years and now topping an international bill
that includes Austria's The
Staggers and The
Jaybirds, UK bands the Good Time Charlies and
rockin' blues act The Excellos,
The Phantom Keys and Los Chicos from Spain, and
Sweden's The Branded.
And some very exciting live bands will be added to the bill over
the next few weeks....
It's a party
planned by people who like good music for people who like good
music - so you can expect to hear the very best in everything from
Garage to Rockabilly, Folk to Funk, Psych to Soul, Freakbeat to
Britpop, Ska to Club Jazz and all points in between!
Plus! 10 more live acts - as well as the most beautiful go-go
girls, the trippiest eye-candy visuals, the freakiest cult cinema.
Not forgetting the worlds' best DJs spinning records from dusk
until daybreak in 3 rooms with an all night-bar! There's also a
huge retro market selling choice vintage furniture, clothes, vinyl
and pop artefacts. A cross-town scooter run on Saturday afternoon.
Art exhibitions. And much more.
