And so we announce our third release on Pie&Vinyl records as we proudly support our local brothers and sisters in our never ending quest to get the torch of recognition pointed towards this historic city.
Let us introduce Rickyfitts, the latest sweet two piece to up the ante in our luscious seaside town/island city as we drain and tap some of the strongest sounding stuff to emerge from these beaches in a long time…
Using every decade of recorded music to peel, chop and throw in to a golden melting pot, these brothers truly make an exciting new flavour which they can proudly call their own. Totally owning their post garage blues fuzz sound, these guys could only exist in the year 2014.
To celebrate our latest release, we’d love to share with you the chance to experience them live and purchase the new EP all at once…
On Friday 30th May at the EASTNEY CELLARS, Rickyfitts will be headlining with very good friends and label siblings THE BOY I USED TO BE, who will be marking this occasion with a very special performance…ouch!. We are also excited to announce with their debut live performance WILDEST DREAMS, who will open the show on the night. History. DJ Liquorice Pizza will be most ably playing nothing but sweet stable horror tunes on nothing but shellac all night long and until late…doors are at 7:30pm.
Tickets are available at Pie&Vinyl for £4 but wait – for the first 60 people that purchase a ticket before the show, you will also net a copy of the EP on the night for free. Simply show your ticket at our merch stand we will swiftly deliver.
Feel free to invite people to the show using our Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/629809373776195/
Tickets are available in store now. Feel free to reserve a copy of the EP using our Click&Collect service using this link if you are unable to attend: http://www.pieandvinyl.co.uk/?p=3250
In the meantime to celebrate this announcement, we have released a taster track from the forthcoming EP below…
The guys will also be appearing at The Isle of Wight Festival, this summer as well as Camp Bestival, Blissfields and Victorious Festival, before embarking on an October time tour.
A bit more about the band of brothers below:
With a limited and enigmatic history to call upon, very few truths can be divulged about Rickyfitts.
These are the facts cannot be denied:
They consist of solely a drummer and a guitarist.
They hail from the seaside city of Portsea Island, having cut their teeth on the music scene that exists in the local bars and social clubs.
It seems from the noise they have been making as well as from the sporadic demos they have placed into the Internet, that many have been able to detect an unapologetic fondness for the mighty Sabbath and rage, as well as an almost too friendly relationship with their fuzz pedals. This married with a passion for The Flaming Lips, Bukowski and Curb Your Enthusiasm make Rickyfitts a band which make drunken engineers say “You made today worth getting up for”.
The first EP is due for release on the 30th May 14 via Pie&Vinyl records.
