John Darnielle who leads cult band THE MOUNTAIN GOATS has been long recognised by their (understandably avid) fans as one of the most imaginative and downright thrilling lyricists of his generation.
Despite having a dense and sometimes impenetrable output, Darnielle has fashioned a live show that pleases both devoted fans and newcomers alike. With over 400 songs in his repertoire, Darnielle has a lot to choose from, often dropping in rarities and newer material amongst the crowd pleasers.
Their new record label, Tomlab, a German independant known for its ambient experimental electronic music are releasing The Mountain Goats new album, All Eternals Deck (out on the 4th April) and as a celebration of this release, The Mountain Goats are back to play Koko. After the success of their show last autumn, we are sure this is one not to miss!
THE SUBMARINES’ 2006 debut, ‘Declare A New State’ launched the Subs into the global slipstream, as their songs appeared everywhere — from television (Gossip Girl, Grey’s Anatomy) and film (Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist) to multiple spots for Apple’s iPhone — and it wasn’t long before The Subs took their show on the road. The band toured North America and Europe extensively, sharing a stage with the likes of The Morning Benders, Aimee Mann and Brazilian Girls. Now, there back with a new album and supporting The Mountain Goats on the UK leg of their tour, including a highly anticipated show at KOKO.
