Phoneys & The Freaks + Towns + Special Guest DJ’s
Introducing Phoneys & The Freaks, a brand new collaboration between Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs and singer/songwriter Alex Lipinski. Having been blown away by Alex’s support slots for his previous band last year, the former Oasis guitarist and Lipinski soon developed a working relationship and began writing and recording together; Phoneys & The Freaks was born.
The resulting sessions produced elements of The Verve, traces of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and shades of others who can pen instantly memorable stadium sized anthems.
Sell out gigs in London and Manchester have showcased what Phoneys & The Freaks can produce when they bring their songs to life on stage. With a summer of festivals planned and a debut EP to be released on Cherry Red imminently, 2014 is already proving to be a busy year indeed for the two musicians.
TOWNS create a spaced out suburban escapism that combines the experimental guitar sounds and DIY aesthetics of psych and shoegaze with the melodies of 60s and 90s guitar pop. Seeing the excitement of rock’n’roll as a way to escape the everyday humdrum of growing up in Weston-super-Mare, they believe in the beauty, glamour and power of ‘proper’ pop music.
