A Motley Crew in the shape of Eddie Temple Morris, Django Django and Palma Violets descended upon Brixton Jamm last night for the NME tour afterparty joined by a few up and coming bands too.
Pulling out all the stops Eddy TM put the likes of Knife Party’s Centipede and the Noisia’s remix of Pendulum’s Smack My Bitch Up to the decks, blaring out to a room dedicated to the indie fuelled audience that pilled in from the Brixton Academy following the final leg of the NME tour.
Django Django and Palma Violets were also on top form following on from their belting performance at the Academy, they definitely brought the party till the early hours of the morning.
A first for Swedish band Everywhere with their first UK gig, their epic performance and technically tight tracks were a treat for the ears and I hear that they’ll be back at the Jamm same time next week supporting the Kaiser Chiefs’ afterparty. Be sure to check out their track Eddie which will be released on their upcoming EP.
Another favourite of the night were the band Youth. Southern lads who’s moto is ‘leather jackets, cups of tea, floral t-shirts and ecstacy’ they have also got an EP coming out in the near future, really loved the sound of these guys and they’ve appeared on BBC Introducing. Just like the name suggests they really were younguns of the musical kind but their stage presence and energy that they brought with them is sure to launch them beyond the playground and into the trophy cabinet of ones to watch.
