April’s Lineup for BMI Sessions Revealed

Posted in News on March 31, 2008

Showcase to feature The Research, Birdman Ray, Kick Superb & Little Fish

Called “the most famous talent scouting event” by The London Paper, the April edition of BMI Sessions will continue to showcase the best of the UK’s buzz bands. Slated for April 3 at 229 (Great Portland Street, Venue 2) at 8 p.m., this month’s musical movers and shakers will be The Research, Birdman Ray, Kick Superb and Little Fish.

  • The Research
  • Birdman Ray

Wakefield’s The Research dish out sassy guitar-driven “teen fury” in the vein of contemporaries The Cribs. The ardent Birdman Ray fuse bluesy strings with scuzz-rock, forming an amalgamation of infectious Weezer and stripped-down White Stripes garage rock. Vivacious Kick Superb bring together the best of the post-punk era with chantey terrace tracks reminiscent of The Clash and The Jam, while Oxford’s mighty rock duo Little Fish combine shades of PJ Harvey and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, entrancing audiences with their anthemic mix of rock, punk and stunning live delivery. The pair recently opened hometown shows for Supergrass, whose frontman Gaz Coombes subsequently dubbed Little Fish lead singer Juju the “new Patti Smith.”
