It is a grim old day outside this end to start the week - it was looking so good last week! Family Entertainments are mounting a celebration of all that is Oi! at Digital Brighton. Here's the details and if you'd like to book interviews or would like pics etc don't hesitate to get in touch.
Sunday July 31st Family Entertainments present Lars Frederiksen & The Old Firm Casuals plus Control, Marching Orders & Skingraft @ Digital Brighton
Danish-Italian guitarist and vocalist Lars Erik Frederiksen is most known for being a member of punk rock band Rancid, and as the frontman of Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards and The Old Firm Casuals. He was also briefly a member of the U.K. Subs in 1991. He describes The Old Firm Casuals as a new ‘American Oi!’ side project which consists of himself, Casey Watson (bass/vocals) and Paul Rivas (drums/vocals). Fans will be delighted to hear that they are releasing a new 7” on Oi! The Boat label. He also owns and works at Skunx Talttoo Parlour in Tokyo – didn’t know that did you?! Well maybe you did …. They are joined on this Oi! Bill by Control (formerly Intensive Care & Beerzone), Marching Orders and Skingraft. Expect it to be loud, raw and totally lacking convention – oh yes!

“The song is about the kind of origins of extremism, terrorism. Of envy and isolation. Mickey Mouse represents the weaker, feminine, comic side of us, and the big bad wolf is the masculine side.” – Nick Cave

“It’s quite fitting that that song has an animated video because the yin-yang extremes there of the two brothers are Mickey Mouse and the big bad wolf; those are kind of cartoonish characters, so it all fits in very nicely.” – Jim Sclavunos
The video is by Ilinca Höpfner whose artwork is featured in Grinderman 2. Recently out of German art school she was discovered when she sent a black and white video for a Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds track to Nick Cave. Nick then called her to ask her to do one for a Grinderman track. “She has done this incredible job of it,” says Nick. “Her drawings are really gorgeous things.”
Grinderman will play the Spanish festival Primavera on 26th May and will play the UK on 24th July as part of the I’ll Be Your Mirror event (co-curated by Portishead and All Tomorrow’s Parties) at Alexandra Palace. Tickets are on sale at: www.atpfestival.com. For a full list of their summer festival dates visit www.grinderman.com.
Grinderman are Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey and Jim Sclavunos.
