Lightning Strikes Twice for London's OH! GUNQUIT with New Album Release

CHEF de STUDIO, Laurent | 5 janvier 2018 |

Oh! Gunquit are a London based 5-piece rumble-bop, freakabilly band who concoct a brew of raw R&R, wild garage rock, and twisted surf-punk.

The nucleus of the band started in 2010 after Tina (Vocals/Trumpet) & Simon (Guitar/Vocals) became neighbours and frequenting the same sweaty cellar dance nights around town. They formed the band around the idea of creating a vibrant blend of new-wave vicious psych-surf, garage-punk, exotica & rock n roll.

Currently consisting of the hottest line-up to date this cosmopolitan creature contains members from Italy, USA, Colombia, Spain & UK. The Soundtrack to B-movies, road trips, & adventuring.. their unique live gigs are a blur of howling vocals, horns, buzzsaw guitars, rumbling toms, and exotic r&r fun.

Ligthning Likes Me is the band's second studio Album combining elements of psychedelic surf punk, sci-fi rockabilly, and future rock n roll. With tracks produced by Detroit legend Jim Diamond (the Sonics, Dirtbombs, Detroit Cobras, White Stripes etc) & also at London's Space Eko studio (Jim Jones, Son of Dave etc) it's a somewhat denser and more experimental feel than their debut and still packed with killer songs with the same exotic wild vicious R'n'R music with which they've become known for. Their near-legendary live shows are now going even further interstellar with new full-time member Chuchi Malpersona (Saxophone) & the continuing super tight rhythm section of VV (Bass) Alex De Renzi (Drums).
