"Fancy a good old Dutronic garagie yeye sound?" enquire new band Les Bof!.
Well if you do these Edinburgh-based men are the ones to provide it. Frenchman in exile Laurent sings in his native language a succession of garage, beat and yéyé songs, both covers and some exquisite originals. The experienced group of musicians have the mid-60s sound down to a tee, and have set alight a succession of clubs and festivals alike in the past year. Their debut EP is well worth seeking out if you are after something a bit different from the normal 'garagie' fare.
The band are playing alongside a host of other garage bands are the inuagral Blast Off! Festival
in Nottingham in early July, organised by the people behind the Lava Lounge club there.
