Johnny Borrell & Zazou announce London headline show

Johnny Borrell & Zazou celebrate the release of their new album ‘The Atlantic Culture‘ with a headline show at 100 Club Oxford Street, London on Tuesday 1st March.

Following last year’s summer festivals and a run of party gigs where entry was only possible in return for a depiction of a mandala, the genre defying virtuoso five-piece return to a more established live setting to preview the “Scott Walker in a 1960s tango bar” songs from their already acclaimed ‘The Atlantic Culture‘ album, and to welcome back their star sax’ playerJoao Mello, recently returned from touring South American stadiums with Dave Gilmour.

“Surely this is what we want in our rockstar landscape, a writer of some damn fine tunes who is also boundlessly entertaining.” The Guardian

“Hooky strings and Latin percussion evoke Scott Walker in a 1960s tapas bar… Borrell’s resurrection is now complete” NME

“His unselfconscious energy and melodic sense remain… dancing like a firefly over a sultry and swampy mood. Welcome back Johnny” The Independent

“Borrell’s new direction is a riot… inspired, insane, heroic” Evening Standard

“Heroic. That’s what Johnny Borrell is. In the face of adversity he’s unrelenting. His self-confidence never wavers; his belief is unshakeable. He’s back” DIY

“Wholly entertaining” Drowned In Sound

“Few could deny that Borrell has real talent” The Arts Desk

“Thoroughly infectious fun. Lacing rootsy rhumbas, polkas, gypsy soul and flapper tunes, Borrell achieves something akin to a Glastonbury circus field bar band or a pre-war Parisian Dexys.” The Guardian

“A kind of ersatz Velvet Underground playing reggae in the Basque country on piano and saxophones.” The Observer

“A bonkers collection of pretentious arty pop.” The Times

“We need more Johnny Borrells” DIY Mag

“Ludicrously enjoyable” Q Mag
