Disco Lights- The Tea Street Band

Remember the spirit of 88? Dole queues getting bigger, the Conservatives in power and class war on the streets.But at the same time, shining out of the gloom, came the birth of Acid House: one of the most significant cultural movements of the 20th Century For those of you too young to remember the first time round Jack to Phono presents Tea Street Band! Become acquanited because you’re going to want to know this band! In the past 6 months TSB have organized a series of pop up warehouse parties in their native Liverpool. These have featured DJs from the city’s famous venues such as Cream and Chibuku.Tea Street Band are a bastard mutilation that in its most extreme combines 808 State with Doves and the gang mentality of The Happy Mondays. The band have developed a remix and production relationship with fellow Liverpudlian Kooky Music. Kooky will be producing the second single on JTP.

Recent appearances at Liverpool Sound City and Hoxton have only boosted their live crudentials. They join fellow city dwellers Bird and The Seal Cub Clubbing Club onto London based Jack to Phono and represent an impressive musical sphere that Liverpool offers in 2012. Already making waves on BBC Introducing in Merseyside , Dave Monks is tipping TSB as one’s to watch.”I think we need to keep doing our own raves, keep playing to more people and spread the love.” say Timo Tierney, Nick Otaegui, James Albertina, Lee Smith, Dom Allen and Tony Carter in a recent interview. We look forward at JTP HQ to holding them to this promise! #PUSH THE FEELING ON

“Think of The Charlatans meeting The Chemical Brothers and lap up the finest cuppa that clubbers can come across”
John Earls, Daily Star

“Think of 808 state having a meeting mid channel to hear some French electronic by Space Disco You need to check these out soon – Come on were British we love a cuppa”
Dave Monks, BBC Introducing

“A glacial slab of guitar-led house that flies us to an Ibizan terrace for cocktails with The Whitest Boy Alive and Aeroplane. It’s really quite beautiful”
Neil Condron, High Voltage

“A shared love of rave culture is present in their output – it’s soaring, distinctly Balearic and sounds as much European as it is rooted in English rock and roll”
Peter Guy, Liverpool Echo

“Their unique sound consisting of straight forward rock n roll combined with heavy drum and bass, techno and House music creates a fusion that can only be described as euphoric; carrying everyone along on the wave of euphoria sweat was dripping everywhere as the five guys sent the crowd delirious. No words can describe the effect this band has on a crowd, and to witness it is magic in action.”
Gina Kershaw, ManGoneBlog

“After a scintillating recent performance at Liverpool Sound City, they’ve ardently begun to win over very man and his dog
Joshua Nevett, Bido Lito

“Played on show”
Eddie Temple Morris, XFM

“Great Record, I’ll play it again on the show!”
John Kennedy XFM

“The Tea Street Band are cool as F**K”
Clint Boon XFM/Inspiral Carpets

“I love this record”
Janice Long- BBC Radio 2
