The Sneaky Nixons Set to Release Schadenfreude

seen-london

Liverpool’s newest rock-n-roll four-piece, The Sneaky Nixons are set to release a new single on Ocean Waves Records on the 21st of April 2017.

‘Schadenfreude’, the follow up to the recent ‘Returning Home a Failure’, will be digitally available via all the major outlets and is the second single to be lifted from the band’s debut album ‘The Barbie Syndrome’ which has just been released.

Recorded last year at the Motor Museum studio with producer Carlo Variola and engineer James Mellor, the album features eleven incendiary new tracks. High- energy indie punk at its very best, the band also infuse hints of early 90s Britpop and Americana to their sound and the end result is all the better for it.

Sneaky Nixons - Returning Home A Failure Cover

Formed nearly two years ago, The Sneaky Nixons’ line up of Charlie Manning (voice/guitar), Lisa Fawcett (drums), Jamie Gosling (bass) and David Lloyd (guitar) set about crafting their very own angry, yet melodic steam train guitar music. They’ve since shaped a reputation locally for their volatile, arrogant behaviour and riotous live performances where literally anything can happen and usually does. This has unsurprisingly seen them split opinions, but each show sees them play to an increasing and enthusiastic fan base and they can also count the likes of Louder Than War, Get Into This and BBC Introducing’s Dave Monks among their many admirers. At last, badly behaved rock stars! SEEN can hardly wait…

The White Asparagus: SEEN Reviews

How fortunate are the residents of Islington? Just a step away from the bustle of the Caledonian Road is the leafy idyll of Hemingford Road and the N1 Cuckoo Gastro-hub. Hard to believe that this little slice of the country resides at the heart of the big bad city. This feeling was heightened by the closed-off road and the children happily playing ball in the street.
