FREE FRIDAYS: YOUNG & LOST CLUB PRESENTS…
Cargo teams up with the Lost and Young Club for a wild trip on the dark side.
One of those happy accidents that just occasionally really really “work” – like side-projects that out-grow original bands. A mixed bag of UK and US members of “other” bands ranging from the Prodigy to Publicist, they met at London’s Fortress Studios where they recorded 8 darkly disco-fied post-punk tracks in 2 days…. the demos got Zane Lowe playing them on Radio One and the live shows are, apparently, quite electrifying’- Artrocker.
Loverman are a four-piece band from London. Gabriel Bruce plays the baritone guitar and voice, Jon Jackson the electric lead, brothers Adam and Chris Prendergast the bass and the drums. They’ve each spent their young manhood being in and out of enough scene bands to fill up a mass grave. So how did they come to rest in peace in Loverman? “I think eventually we all just had enough of posturing” says Gabriel. “We all realized that it’s the darkness and the horror and the shadows that we’re really into. Making this big menacing death-sound; this is the stuff we all believe in. Once we figured that out, the music came a lot easier. Chris and Adam joined the band and we started making this gargantuan noise, and we realized that this was what we should have been doing the whole time.”
