On 27th November, Fred Perry Sub-Sonic Live hosted one of the best gigs so far, with seminal post-punk band The Fall and all-girl four piece fellow Manchester band PINS taking to the stage. The Fall, fronted by iconic lyricist Mark E. Smith, signed to Cherry Red Records, are a prolific group, and released their 30th album Re-Mit last year. Against the backdrop 'Dedication Not Medication', The Fall opened with 'Amorator!' from The Remainderer…
2015 seems to be the year where subcultures will cross over more and more. As influences from Punk, Mod, Goth, Ska, 2-Tone and Hip Hop collide, the most exciting artists are those who embrace this, taking the best essence of each and putting their own imprint upon the creative process. Here at Fred Perry Subculture we have picked a few of such exciting artists, as Ones to Watch 2015... JuceStarting off the list are our hottest tip; Juce. Composed…
The Specials are back on tour, with many UK dates having already sold out months ago.

See end of post for dates and ticket links. Click here to enter our competition to win a pair of tickets to the Troxy show on 21st November. And, if you need an appetiser,…
The Fall - The Garage, London, November 27th, 2014 -

Featured in our Ones to Watch 2015 blog, London based psych-blues quartet Saint Agnes are back with a brand new video for ‘A Beautiful Day For Murder’, the exclusive premiere for which is below. Heavy blues meets scuzzy rock n roll with beautiful vocal harmonies, released by Energy Snake Records (ex Vuvuvultures). As well as the video premiere, members Jon and Kitty answered a few questions below: How did you meet and decide to make music together? Jon:…
News of what promises to be a unique release for early 2015. Film director, John Carpenter, creator of such modern classics of popular cinema as Halloween (and its sequels), The Fog, They Live and Escape From New York, is to release an album of original compositions via acclaimed independent label Sacred Bones (release date 3rd February 2015). The first track to emerge from the album is the excellent 'Vortex' which you can listen to below, or via…
With the internet currently clogged with ascending end of year lists of 2014 releases, we decided to take a different approach and make a list of some of the rereleased music that had caught our attention this year, in no particular order. Click on the title of each release to find out more about where to get it. Obviously it's near impossible to make a list like this comprehensive and exhaustive, but let us know if you think there's a crucial rerelease…
Does your granny always tell you that the old ones are the best? We're very pro-Slade here at Fred Perry Subculture. Besides their festive banger, Slade are one of the best recorded examples of what was happening within subcultures in the UK's Midlands in the late 60s and early 70s, with the band adopting a suedehead look before developing their familiar sideburns and fringes. Noel Gallagher famously stated that Slade's 'How Does It Feel' is "one…
Describing themselves as flower punk ruffians, Bosco Rogers are Barthélémy Corbelet and Delphinius Vargas. Their debut 'Googoo EP' is out now and the first track to be made public is the instantly catchy 'The Middle' which, with its casual mixture of Psych, 60s anglo-french pop vibes and proto-punk muscle, is sure to strike a chord with readers here. Check out the flower powered video below, being sure to watch to the end for some delightfully fuzzy…
Norwegian songstress Susanne Sundfør makes emotive, 80s-influenced synthpop. With luscious vocal stylings not too dissimilar to Kate Bush, Susanne Sundfor has previously provided vocal for M83's 'Oblivion', as well as for fellow Norwegian outfit Röyksopp.
Before forming their experimental electronic outfit, Deafkid, Christopher Lockington and Florian Sauvaire worked with experimental hip hop artist, Ghostpoet, on his Mercury Prize nominated album 'Peanut Butter Blues And Melancholy Jam', and were also the live band for subsequent Ghostpoet tours from 2009-2012. The latest release from the duo is the 'Dialects EP' with its lead track 'Rosary'. Watch the video for the ghostly romantic track below. A…
Grrrl-punk Londoners Skinny Girl Diet formed in 2011, and consist of Delilah Holliday (Guitar and Vocals), Amelia Cutler (Bass and Vocals), Ursula Holliday (Drums and Vocals).
The Charlatans are back with a new album on the horizon. Their 12th studio album Modern Nature is set for release on January 26, and follows on from a well-received ltd edition 7" Talking in Tones through The Quietus Phonographic Company, which also went straight on the 6Music A playlist and sold out within hours. The band also recently unveiled another track from forthcoming Modern Nature - 'So Oh', a feel-good, dream-like summery track featuring…
Meet Berlin-born NINA. She has just finished her tour with Erasure which was extremely well received in the US, and has now unveiled the video for 'My Mistake', exclusively premiered on Fred Perry Subculture. 'My Mistake' is a synthtastic electro-pop tune, invoking memories of the cult film Drive, and reminding us of Ellie Goulding, Little Boots and Indiana. The track grabs you with its heavy and dark pulsating rhythm which builds up to an euphoric…
Melting the boundaries of their chosen subculture, Dylan Carlson and Earth released their 2014 album 'Primitive and Deadly' in September, taking their engrossing and immersive breed of Drone Metal to a vast new expanse of sonic originality and astronomical scale. Engulfing elements of Psych and Americana within their metal mass, Earth make use of vocal contributions from Rabia Shaheen Qazi and Mark Lanegan on the album, alongside the band's considerable…
Manchester all-female four-piece PINS released acclaimed debut album Girls Like Us last year, and have since been taking their unique blend of dark pop, post punk, fuzzed up garage sound and alluringly abrasive chant-like vocals on a series of tours, playing with the likes of Dum Dum Girls, Sleigh Bells and Warpaint. The band recently opened for The Fall, at Fred Perry Sub-Sonic Live, which prooved to be be an exceptional show! Watch the Manchesterettes…
In 1994, 1995 and 1996 it was difficult to go to a club, festival or cinema in the UK, without in some way being exposed to Underworld's music. Although the period is often associated with the bands of the 'Britpop' movement, Underworld, along with some other electronic dance outfits such as Chemical Brothers and Orbital, became as much a part of the scene as bands like Blur, Pulp and Oasis. The release of 'dubnobasswithmyheadman' with its tracks…
ZIBRA love obsolete equipment and building synthesisers from scratch.
ZIBRA are the sound of a VHS tape chewed up in an electrical system. They make their own music videos or rally in their friends at the camcorder-obsessed production team Youth Hymns.
The Wharves combine gracefully minimal psyche-rock with fuzzed out folk. Their songwriting remains consistently rich throughout At Bay largely due to the startling harmonies of Gemma Fleet (bass) and Dearbhla Minogue (guitar) bonding each of the albums 13 tracks. The glorious production courtesy of Rory Attwell (The Vaccines, Mazes, Veronica Falls)…
