Label: Moshi Moshi
London based trio The Wave Pictures – Jonny Helm (drums), Dave Tattersall (guitar & vocals) and Franic Rozycki (bass) – return with their brand new album Bamboo Diner in The Rain due out on Moshi Moshi on 11 November. The first single to be taken from the album is the Raymond Chandler infused, daydream of a track, “Running Man”.
Following on from last year’s Billy Childish collaboration Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon and their recent acoustic record A Season in Hull, Bamboo Diner in the Rain sees The Wave Pictures battling against the robot music apocalypse. The new album is a bluesy, boozy love letter to the guitar, filled with American Primitive instrumentals, John Lee Hooker chugs and Link Wray style minor-key surf music. As songwriter and guitarist Dave Tattersall explains; “This album is set in the Bamboo Diner of my dreams, with rain beating on the windows and a jukebox stocked with blues.”
