Late Of The Pier



I think they call it "new rave" or something. Bands like The Klaxons and Datarock are putting a space age twist on the British dance rock scene, one where glowsticks are not entirely ironic and the '80s wardrobes are adorned by those not around the first time. Nottingham's Late Of The Pier have not so quietly been storming UK dance clubs, most famously London's Way Out West club night. The band pushes techno on its back, kicks electro in its face and rips indie a new asshole, and it's all done in that Dischord-style of DIY, where the fans are the most important part of the equation.

wouldnt class them as new rave! their music does not fit into a any genre, if anything they are just very very cleaver pop! a band to watch out for in 2007.
love them
