The Shindig! Revue #3 Band Showcase – The Kumari

BEN ADLAM introduces THE KUMARI, the headline act for the third instalment of The Shindig! Revue at The Victoria, Dalston on the 17th August

Formed in 2012, The Kumari are a heavy psych trio cut from the mould of Brian Jonestown Massacre and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club but with more than a hint of Temples jangle on top. The Kumari have been delivering the fuzz goods across London stages since their formation.

Having released five singles on five different international labels, The Kumari have found a new home on Metal Postcards records and recently released their debut album The Kumari. The album successfully captures their live effervescence and will shake your fillings out, stand out track ‘Space Witch’ is a glam encrusted slice of fuzz feedback, with a pure rock ’n’ roll vocal on top.

Claude Pelletier provides vocals and guitar sounds, the enigmatic Hughsie H bangs the drums and Scott Custiss lays down the bass grooves.  More than a sum of its parts and more than just another rock trio, The Kumari blend the heavy ’00s psych sounds with ’60s beat jangle, ’70s glam and punk and a little ’90s indie for good measure. All bases covered. Now uncover your ears and catch them live this Friday!


The Shindig! Revue #3 Band Showcase – Green Seagull

BEN ADLAM introduces GREEN SEAGULL the second act for the third instalment of The Shindig! Revue at The Victoria, Dalston on the 17th August


Named after a misheard Rolling Stones lyric (“No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue” – bonus points on offer)  GreenSeagull were formed in 2016 when Paul Nelson (New Electric Ride) and Paul Milne (Magnetic Mind) got together and began working on some new music.  A shared enthusiasm for late ’60s baroque psychedelia and West Coast 12-string jangle soon blossomed into a prolific songwriting team. When Lysergics keyboard queen Sarah Gonputh joined along with Elian Dlamasso (Eliphant) a flurry of 8-track demo’s followed and the group were snapped up by Mega Dodo Records.
