Reckless Yes Present's Menace Beach, The Hairy Dog, Derby - 18th October 2018

I went just because Pet Crow were playing, but got to see three great bands for my money. Menace Beach are just a quality band. They seem to be in complete control and have their own vision of how they sound. Sublime synth pop songs with driving bass lines. Quality pop music at its best.

You need to know Menace Beach. Blasting out of 2012 in an almighty burst of brilliant indie noise rock, the Leeds band have quickly shot to the fore of the new wave of sonically experimental British bands pounding from the underground on to the mainstream’s door. You need to see them play if you haven’t already.

They have now announced a handful of dates including The Hairy Dog at Derby, The Deaf Institute at Manchester and London Oslo during October 2018.

It seems very apt that band leaders Liza Violet and Ryan Needham would choose to take their name from the 1990 side scrolling NES platformer Menace Beach. A game that depicts a surreal world in which a skateboarder fights clowns with balloons to reach his girlfriend Bunny conjures both a nostalgia for a decade in which the no wave American independent bands would shape rock the world over and a sense of limitless thrilling oddball excitement.

Somewhat of a supergroup, Menace Beach unites Needham formerly of Komankino, Violet who also works in Department M, Nestor Matthews of Sky Larkin, Matt Spalding of You Animals and MF from Hookworms.

After grabbing attention in 2014 with their Lowtalker EP, Menace Beach were snapped up by indie label Memphis Industries and released their debut album Ratworld the following year. The twelve song sonic assault saw them lunge from rock to crazed psyche.

We’ve created our own grubby little Ratworld to inhabit. Everything is better when it’s a bit grubby and broken” - Ryan Needham
