Remember the spirit of 88? Dole queues getting bigger, the Conservatives in power and class war on the streets.But at the same time, shining out of the gloom, came the birth of Acid House: one of the most significant cultural movements of the 20th Century For those of you too young to remember the first time round Jack to Phono presents Tea Street Band!
Become acquanited because you're going to want to know this band! In the past 6 months TSB have organized a series of pop up warehouse parties in their native Liverpool. These have featured DJs from the city's famous venues such as Cream and Chibuku.
Tea Street Band are a mutilation that in its most extreme combines 808 State with Doves and the gang mentality of The Happy Mondays. Recent appearances at Liverpool Sound City and Hoxton have only boosted their live crudentials. They join fellow city dwellers Bird and The Seal Cub Clubbing Club onto London based Jack to Phono and represent an impressive musical sphere that Liverpool offers in 2012. Already making waves on BBC Introducing in Merseyside , Dave Monks is tipping TSB as one's to watch. "I think we need to keep doing our own raves, keep playing to more people and spread the love." say Timo Tierney, Nick Otaegui, James Albertina, Lee Smith, Dom Allen and Tony Carter in a recent interview.
We look forward at JTP HQ to holding them to this promise! Jack to Phono are delighted to announce that we will be releasing the new single
