Shockwaves NME Awards Shows 2011: The Duke Spirit + Big Deal + Tape The Radio
The iconic NME Awards Shows kick off in 2011 with a superlative line-up that will see them taking over London, setting the musical agenda for the year ahead.
Featuring Carl Barat, White Lies, Caribou, Crocodiles and recent NME cover stars Warpaint, amongst a host of the most exciting acts around, the shows run from February 1st and continue throughout the month, building up anticipation for the legendary NME Awards on February 23rd.
Spread across some of London's best music venues, the NME Awards Shows are set to make a huge impact on the capital's live scene, with a month-long mix of live music from the best influential, established and cutting edge acts around.
Post-punk five-piece fronted by the enigmatic Leila Moss. With a definitive ‘don’t-give-a-damn’ attitude, The Duke Spirit simply ooze cool in the geeky unknowing way that Sonic Youth or The Velvet Underground did before them. Duke Spirit’s sound is a more modern, up-to-date version of their predecessors angsty guitar led punk, but there are certainly comparison’s to be made – in Leila’s drawling vocals and the bands thrashing guitars. The Duke Spirit are the kind of band that will make music history, maybe not for doing anything big, but simply for being around and making the kind of quality music that will stick in the minds of music fans for years to come.
The Duke Spirit tour dates
London based, Big Deal, is Kacey Underwood and Alice Costelloe. They both sing, they both write and they both play guitar. The dual vocals combine to great effect across “Homework” and on their cover of arguably Big Star’s most enduring song, “Thirteen”. Big Deal conjur up woozy, lo-fi folk, understated and discreet music for the early hours, both beautiful and fragile.
