Violent Soho gigs and video

Violent Soho ‘Bombs Over Broadway/ Son of Sam’ Monday 10th May 2010 via ECSTATIC PEACE!/DEFACTO

Luke Boerdam – Vocals Guitar

Luke Henery – Bass
Michael Richards – Drums

Violent Soho have gone from self-releasing their debut in their native Australia to signing to Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace! label, home to Be Your Own Pet, Free Kitten, Awesome Color and other freak-rockers. Ecstatic Peace! step out of their usual modus operandi with Violent Soho to release it on new UK imprint Defacto through Island/Universal.

They are the most visceral, mushroom-munchin’, bong-tokin’ slacker guitar foursome to be punishing their amps in a long time and have impressed rawk royalty wherever they park their van.

They played for Rick Rubin at his Malibu Condo. Thurston Moore was at the front at their first NY show at Lower East Side hang out Pianos. And passing the grunge baton on a generation their album was produced by ThePixies/Foo Fighters/Distillers producer Gil Norton at his Rockfields studio in the Welsh countryside (in between playing darts on Black Sabbath’s favourite dartboard).

This limited edition 7″ with the buzz-saw energy of ‘Bombs Over Broadway’ and ‘Son Of Sam’ is a noisy introduction to their long-haired punk.

Bombs Over Broadway can be downloaded for free by signing up to the band’s mailing list here:

Having toured the US with two of their favourite bands ever in October and November 2009 – Dinosaur Jnr and Built to Spill – 2010 has seen them play an Ecstatic Peace! showcase at SXSW as well as supporting Alice in Chains


Violent Soho are coming to the UK for a couple of shows in May:
10th May – LONDON – The Monarch
13th May – BRIGHTON – The Great Escape Festival
