Band: WEIMAR (pronounced Vy-marr)
Who: Eclectic progressive art-rock quartet formed in 2016 in
Manchester (UK). They produce a range of styles from post-punk roots
to no wave, cabaret, chanson, jazz, funk, psychedelia, alternative folk
and gothic rock, coming together in a distinctive fusion.
FFO: Violent Femmes, Pylon, The B-52’s, Wall of Voodoo, The Divine
Comedy, The Velvet Underground, The Fall, Buzzcocks, Iggy Pop.
The song is: “An ode to the bottle service girls working LA’s clubs and bars, using tips gained from punters to finance their wider career aspirations in Hollywood and the business world.
It is a celebration of their business prestige, and a positive reflection on the essence of the American Dream and the road to stardom.”
Turn Up The Volume: Imagine the fervid fuzz of punchy guitar pop legends Buzzcocks, with The Stranglers’ Jean-Jacques Burnel on bass, combined with the cutting edginess of today’s post-Brexit-punk rebirth and you know an effervescent ripper is coming your way. Add some American-dream girls of the City of Angles on your imaginary mind-screen and you’re about to start a champagne party in your head.
