Junior Bill & Dj Sacha Dieu at The Magic Garden
June 4 @ 8:00 pm - June 5 @ 2:00 am£7
Honed in their local youth club, Junior Bill’s streetwise sound brings together the disparate influences of frontman and songwriter Rob Nichols. Their upcoming album, Youth Club! is a nostalgic paean to the places the band spent their teens in and were given the space to develop as musicians. Its rich and exotic blend of hi life, calypso, latin, reggae and soul forms a colourful backdrop to Rob’s social commentary. As a live band, however, they become a blood and guts indie four piece, spitting witticisisms into the mics with soulful joy and intensity. Rob’s songs have a way of telling societally poignant stories which never seem preachy and never cut too simple a stance on complex issues. The childlike honesty and passion with which they put all this across makes them one of the most refreshing bands you are likely to see.
