Lo Fi Culture Scene - Three Today
This was recorded at the Islington Bar Academy in January 2008, during the Artrocker Festival. Incredible to think that this is over two years old. And how tight they were already! I believe only Jacob was over the age of 13 at the time.
As a professional outfit Lo Fi Culture Scene are three years old today. They played their first gig on 27 March 2007 at Nambucca on the Holloway Road. They supported a band called Fear of Flying, soon to become White Lies. Since then they have played the late-lamented Astoria, the Barfly, Concorde 2, the Borderline, the O2 Academy, Clwb Ifor Bach, and The Joiners, to mention just a few. They have supported Bloc Party, Les Savy Fav, Good Shoes, Mystery Jets, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Answering Machine, and toured with The Kabeedies. They have played in Bristol, Southampton, Leeds, Norwich, Portsmouth, Brighton, Kendal, Hitchin, Cambridge and even in Camden and Islington.
The band is now resting as its members tackle their GCSEs and A levels, but they are still writing songs and will make a couple of appearances in the summer with a fairly new set. They are altogether too accomplished to go away. Let Bombay Bicycle Club enjoy the limelight for the time being!
