IT’A OK, REL~LAXX…THERE WILL BE PIE&VINYL DJ’S SPINNING SHELLAC AFTER THE SHOW, SO STAY AND MAKE A NIGHT OF IT (the night will end after we play ‘Eternal Flame’)
It’s no secret how much we love TRAAMS in the shop, and not just because they are ruddy great chaps, more for the reasons you do – and that is they sound sooooooooo good. They also live just down the road, we like to think of them as. Local.
So when the guys asked if we’d have them in store for a show, we automatically ran to the sea shouting YES! (and jumped in) – (Whilst in the sea) we thought, how can we fit everyone in? How can we not compromise their immense wall of sound without our lovely neighbours down the road wanting to kill us?
An in store that’s slightly better equipped to deal with NOISE and BODIES at another location – to make up for lack of pie, somewhere you can have an amazing beer – Hi There THE WAVE MAIDEN.
So, we are very pleased pleased to announce TRAAMS in store, at our beer cousins THE WAVE MAIDEN at 8pm on Saturday 14th November. FREE ENTRY.
The show will take place up stairs, and the capacity will be a tight 65 people. First come first let in.
More details below – See you soon for what should be an incredible show – P&V

Following on from their 2013 debut success, Grin. The post punk trio TRAAMS announced their return later this year with their second album, Modern Dancing. By relocating to Leeds, the band were able to record and work alongside familiar producer MJ of Hookworms, at the Suburban Home Studios.
“As a band we felt more focused this time, we had a clearer idea of what we wanted.” stated Leigh (bass) “Recording ‘Modern Dancing’ felt like making an album proper. We are very happy with everything we’ve put out but the structure of these sessions really helped us get stuck in and try new things. It was great working with MJ again too. It’s generally a more positive record than our first, it’s a bit brighter, and a tad more optimistic, ultimately it documents our first couple of years touring, new friendships and relationships.”
The first track offering from this forthcoming LP, released through FatCat Records, is Succulent Thunder Anthem.

‘What makes the band so special is that they take a garagey style of punk and inject it with both pop and krautrock. At its best it’s incredibly powerful.’ – Brighton Source
