The Sneaky Nixons Set to Release Schadenfreude

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…

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
