West Coast neo-punk provocateurs The Garden recently released ‘U Want the Scoop?’ via Epitaph Records, representing a youthful punk scene in California with their dirty, raw and immediate two-piece bass and drum attack. Produced by Rob Schnapf (Joyce Manor, Elliott Smith, Beck,) ‘U Want the Scoop?’ follows the band’s 2015 debut album proper ‘Haha,’ which amid the garage rock sat abstract spoken-word pieces, surrealist lyrics and a whole heap of perverse genre-jumping.
Established in 2011, the duo – AKA Wyatt and Fletcher Shears – created the term “Vada Vada” to represent their music and other creations. The term represents total freedom of expression without boundaries or guidelines of any sort. “Why strive to be a part of a scene when you can create your own? Vada Vada is an alternative reality that we put ourselves into so we don’t have to fit in” explains Wyatt.
After making their way across Europe, The Garden play 2 UK at Manchester Soup Kitchen on 21st and London SCALA on 22nd.
