Another cracker to look forward to in April when one man electro-psych machine brings his TVAM project to York for the first time after the release of debut album Psychic Data. ‘Hazy psychodramatic atmosphere that brings to mind proto-electro punks Suicide, the swaying noise of MBV, and the brooding nostalgia of Boards Of Canada. Quite simply this is a superb debut album’

Traditional songs and tunes are given a heavy rock edge with earth shattering riffs, playful arrangements and driving dance rhythms. Blackbeard’s Tea Party believe a live music show should be a spectacle for the eyes as well as the ears. Outlandish outfits, costume changes, DIY props, unhinged stage antics and chaotic choreography all add up to an engaging, high-octane show that frequently leaves audiences cheering for more.
