J.D. HANGOVER ANNOUNCE DEBUT U.K. DATES
Hotly-tipped blues-punks J.D. HANGOVER make their UK live debut this spring.
Unlike your run-of-the-mill garage-blues duos doing that guitar and drums thing, the Hangover kids concentrate on scorching slide guitar and throbbing bass (not to mention the odd bit of sax and Vox organ), leaving the beats to their third member, an original 1972 Roland TR-77 drum machine, a move inspired by legendary NYC electro-punks Suicide.
The outfit comprises Stiv Cantarelli and Roberto Villa of Italian garage-blues legends Stiv Cantarelli & The Silent Strangers, whose genre-shredding album Banks Of The Lea was a massive sleeper hit and underground floorfiller back in the grease and sweat drenched European scene of 2014/15.
The duo released their debut, all analogue, self-titled 6-track EP in November 2017 through Annibale Records (Dead Coast, The Shivas etc), when they also appeared as special guests to Boss Hog. The release was accompanied by the videos/singles ‘Barrelhouse Queen’ and ‘Mr Williamson’.
J.D. Hangover will play four dates in early March, including shows with their good friends Miraculous Mule and The Dublo, featuring BOTL producer and sometime Membranes guitarist Pete Bennett. They then return at the end of May to support Aussie garage-punk legends The Scientists at The Borderline.
Full dates are….
Wed 7 Mar – New Cross Inn, London (w/Billionaire & Bridport Dagger)
Thur 8 Mar – The Railway Hotel, Southend on Sea (w/Tuppenny Bunters)
Fri 9 Mar – Paperdress Vintage, Hackney, London (w/Miraculous Mule & Mudlow)
