19 February, 2014 Leave a comment
Double peace! Japanese rock ‘n roll badasses Electric Eel Shock will make their overdue return to Great Britain in April and May of 2014! During one of their last trips to the UK the band managed to pick up the NEO Magazine Award for best music act, as well as release their first fan-funded album Sugoi Indeed.
At the time of writing, seven dates have been announced:
Wednesday 30th April: Electric Eel Shock, The Full Moon, Cardiff.
Thursday 1st May: Electric Eel Shock, The Compass, Chester.
Friday 2nd May: Electric Eel Shock, Boston Music Room, London.
Monday 5th May: Electric Eel Shock, The Duchess, York.
Tuesday 6th May: Electric Eel Shock, The Anvil, Bournemouth.
Thursday 22nd May: Electric Eel Shock, Exchange, Bristol.
Expect plenty of R’n’R antics, from drummer’s Gian’s four-stick (and naked) playing style, to frontman Aki’s custom Flying V (an actual V!) and plenty of heavy rock influenced antics.
Electric Eel Shock had previously toured with Bloodhound Gang in 2005, and even had a bathroom-based cameo in the punk group’s Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss music video.
