Laissez Faire Club is four

Laissez Faire Club’s live nights have been around for four years now, and in aid of this fact we’ve decided to put on two shows in two nights at two of our favourite East London venues, Catch and The Macbeth respectively.

In between stuffing ourselves with festive meats and heralding in 2k11 over the holiday season, we’ve been toiling away putting the lineups you see in front of you together. We’ve made an effort to book bands that have played at least one Laissez Faire Club gig in the past and generally supported us through thick and thin, alongside bands who are exciting us right now.

Scoundrels played the first ever LFC at The Windmill back in 2006 (and many more along the way, in various guises), so we’re delighted to have them headline the first evening at Catch. The blues influenced four piece recently put pen to paper with Seymour Stein’s resurrected Blue Horizon label (originally home to Fleetwood Mac and Chicken Shack), and this will be their first show of 2011. Support comes from LFC Records’ first ever signings Ice Black Birds, throwback folk ‘n’ rollers Holden and one of our favourite new discoveries of 2010, The Jacquerie.

Let’s Buy Happiness‘ debut at LFC came in September, and we’re over the moon to have them playing again for us so soon – they headline the second night at The Macbeth on the 27th. Their shoegazey sound and female vocals have won them many plaudits over the last few months, as well as comparisons to The Sundays and Cocteau Twins. Expect to hear their last single ‘Six Wolves’ aired, alongside its follow up ‘Fast Fast’ (out 28 Feb). Warming things up for them will be our new signings The Collectable Few, who’ll be launching their debut single ‘Headstrong’ (out on Monday 24th), as well as Escapists and Channel Cairo, two new-ish London bands who both play their own brand of atmospheric indie-rock with big, memorable hooks.

All in all, we really do believe these are some of the best new bands out there at the moment, and we’re delighted to have rounded them up to play to you all at once. On top of all this, we’ve confirmed special guest DJ sets from the likes of Post War Years, Monkeysuit and Gramofoam, who’ll be providing you with the latest indie / electro beats in between and after the live acts.

Excited? We certainly are. Full information, ticket details and Facebook RSVPs can be found on our Events page.

Ice Black Birds – As Birds We’d Be Fine by Laissez Faire Club

‎”Like The Doors if they’d swapped taking acid in the desert for writing coherent rock songs. From Brighton, this band has the anthemic chops to be serious contenders.”Jaimie Hodgson (NME Breakthrough)

“”I love love love the things that you do,” sings, nay croons, Sam Denniston, and I boomerang that sentiment right back at them. “As Birds We’d Be Fine” is nothing short of fantastic, and could very easily turn into one of my favorite songs of the year.”Les Enfants Terribles Blog

“Recalling Aha Shake Heartbreak era Kings Of Leon, “As Birds” sounds like a festival favourite in waiting.”XYZ Magazine

“Ice Black Birds are clearly brimming with confidence, and bring back a little bit of swagger to indie guitar music.”High Voltage

“Both tracks are bright and catchy, and grab you the moment you hear them. The charm is in the execution, there’s nothing complex about them they just sound right.”Leeds Music Scene

Lyrics of the Day

verse/chorus/verse need not apply

i’m working on my backwards walk
walking with no shoes or socks
and the time rewinds to the end of may
i wish we’d never met then met today

i’m working on my faults and cracks
filling in the blanks and gaps
and when i write them out they don’t make sense
i need you to pencil in the rest

i’m working on drawing a straight line
and i’ll draw until i get one right
it’s bold and dark girl, can’t you see
i done drawn a line between you and me

i’m working on erasing you
just don’t have the proper tools
i get hammered, forget that you exist
there’s no way i’m forgetting this

i’m working hard on walking out
shoes keep sticking to the ground
my clothes won’t let me close the door
these trousers seem to love your floor

i been working on my backwards walk
there’s nowhere else for me to go
except back to you just one last time
say yes before i change my mind

say yes before i…
you’re the shit and i’m knee-deep in it
