Dirty Water and Slow Death present Slander Tongue and Fruit Tones!
SLANDER TONGUE is a Berlin-based Rock & Roll band. Four guys who have spent the past years in various bands (BIKES, MODERN PETS, King Khan & THE SHRINES, SICK HORSE, ...) and bars. It's nice to hear a Berlin band in 2019 that doesn't hide its sound behind an array of pedals. Guitar solos that don't allow a piss break in between songs, all backed up by a solid rhythm. Think J. Thunders sharing a ride with Fred "Sonic" Smith down Quaalude highway while Ian Hunter (Mott) and Chris Bailey (Saints) are getting wasted in the backseat singing along to an old Goat's Head Soup tape.
Fruit Tones is a rock and roll band from Manchester. Nothing artificial - this is the real deal. Real music played by real people for real reasons. No budget. No gimmicks. No nothing. They’ve been busting out the zoo and freewheelin’ across the globe for a few years now, spooning out ripe & ready raunch for the modern listener. The live show is a force of nature - these fruits can play! We’re talking one steam-rolling-mondo-garage thud here folks! Stomping drums, menacing guitars, the vocals bite – the left handed bassist plays a right handed bass upside down, walking all up and down the joint like it’s nothing! They’re the kind of guys The Shangri-La’s sing about! True professional amateurs!
Plus Slow Death DJs till late.
