wuuad are a Brighton based post-rock outfit, crafting new sounds by fusing popular music with elements of math, prog, and electronica. With a constantly expanding sound, songs are usually backed up by a reverb/delay drenched soundscape, and imaginative, toe curling psychedelia riffs, cherry topped by Henry’s sincere and fragile vocals. As featured on Coastal Sounds Music Review, 1Brighton.fm, Brighton’s Finest and Platform B – wuuad’s self-funded debut EP, titled ‘(woo-ad)’ will see it’s first content releases around the end 2017.
“One of our favourite outfits to come out of Brighton over the last couple of years. A refreshingly unique experimental four piece that translate wonderfully live.” – KING MOB Magazine
THE 99 DEGREE
Manchester’s The 99 Degree started life in 2016 as a writing experiment between guitarist Phil Turner and lyricist Joe Sartini to combine a sleazy mix of Surf, Punk, Rockabilly, 60’s Garage Rock, Spaghetti Westerns, Country, Blues and other oddities with sing-along vocal hooks. The resulting mixture quickly yielded finished songs and after an outing as a duo these quickly grew into bigger and more complex full-band arrangements. Close friends Paul Fetherstone and Craig Trickett were called for on bass and drums (with Craig uprooting from London to be involved!) and The 99 Degree line-up complete.
Staying deliberately underground and combining select support slots with some of the alternative scene’s best names (The Fall, King Khan & BBQ, The Shivas, Mystic Braves, Kid Congo, Death Valley Girls, The Schizophonics) with a select few DIY headline events thrown by the band and friends, live comparisons were quickly drawn with the likes of Fat White Family, The Growlers, The Cramps, Black Lips and The Allah Las but with something quickly becoming identified as their own and increasingly labelled as “Black Surf”.
