Oh! Gunquit


London garage-freak-a-billy fun gang Oh! Gunquit, release their second video single So Long Sucker from sophomore LP 'Lightning Likes Me' - which combines elements of psychedelic surf punk, sci-fi rockabilly, and future rock n roll. The nucleus of the band started in 2010 after Tina (Vocals/Trumpet) & Simon (Guitar/Vocals) became neighbours and frequenting the same sweaty cellar dance nights around town. They formed the band around the idea of creating a vibrant blend of new-wave vicious psych-surf, garage-punk, exotica & rock n roll.

With tracks produced by Detroit Legend Jim Diamond (the Sonics, Dirtbombs, Detroit Cobras, White Stripes etc) & also at London's Space Eko studio by Alex McGowen (Jim Jones, Son of Dave etc) it's a somewhat denser and more experimental feel than their debut and still packed with killer songs with the same Exotic Wild Vicious RnR Music with which they've become known for. Their near-legendary live shows are now going even further interstellar with new full-time member Chuchi Malpersona (Saxophone) & the continuing super tight rhythm section of VV (Bass) Alex De Renzi (Drums).

The band has recorded two live sessions on London's only Arts Radio Station -Resonance FM. Live shows they have played include many events/festivals all over UK such as Field Day, Trip Out, Offset, Hop Farm, Hipsville, Franklin Fest and Farm Festival. They have also performed shows for festivals & events in Europe including Spain's Bule Bule, Fuzz in the City, Munster Raving Loony Party, & Fuzzville Festivals & tours in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Portugal & Spain. The band have supported other acts such as Fat White Family, Public Service Broadcasting, King Khan & the Shrines (US), Andrew Weatherall, The Pandoras (US), Kinoco Hotel (Japan) & shows at the Danny Boyle curated Shuffle Film Festivals.

In June 2017 their track 'Bad Bad Milk' was used on US Magazine VICE TV skateboarding show series called 'King Of The Road'.

  Shindig Magazine: 'Big fun for the fans of Trashy, Theatrical, Rock n Roll Thrills!'

  Louder Than War: 'Song after song twists and wraps itself around your ears shaking a rhythm down to your feet. Track by Track each is faultless'

 Bananas Magazine: 'Ten sizzlin' slabs of rockabilly/garage/r&b crossover that will hook the listener with it's Variety, High Energy, and Memorable Melodies'

OGQ are a refreshingly non-stop party of sound; a melting pot of rock n roll voodoo madness and pure unadulterated aural expression, perhaps the perfect soundtrack to a hedonistic roadtrip yet to be made. Mixing The Cramps and The B-52's and putting their own stamp on it" -Vive Le Rock Magazine

"Strong purveyors of vicious & exotic raw pop music" - Rough Trade
