Ja Ja Ja returns to The Lexington for the last time before our summer break, but don’t worry; we’re back in September.
Ja Ja Ja
We’re back! Útidúr, Freja Loeb and Manna complete an ever eclectic lineup for the March edition of everyone’s favourite Nordic club night.
As the last Ja Ja Ja was a massive two year anniversary celebration with – as per always – incredible music, and due to us having a month off for Christmas, January’s Ja Ja Ja had to be a pretty special come-back affair.
Here’s a quick look back over last month’s packed out Ja Ja Ja night, featuring interviews and performances from all acts involved: Young Dreams, Retro Stefson and Eleanoora Rosenholm.
Eleanoora Rosenholm is the work of three incredibly respected Finnish artists who have written three concept albums which narrate the dramatic and disturbed odyssey of a suburban housewife to “hysterically kaleidoscopic pop”.
Retro Stefson, are one of Iceland’s brightest hopes and best live bands. They kindly gave us an insight into their moustacheod psyche, by way of our world-famous Seven Questions…
Ja Ja Ja February is a double-whammy, with not one, but two heavyweight curators for our evening of Nordic muso love-in. Phil Hebblethwaite and John Doran, respective founders of the print and on-line music bibles that are The Stool Pigeon and The Quietus, are joining forces to bring you the loudest, darkest, most out-there and frankly bonkers Ja Ja Ja yet.
Benedikt H. Hermannsson is the man behind Benni Hemm Hemm’s dazzling, multi-instrumented indie-pop. He’ll be appearing with his band of cohorts at the TLOBF sponsored all-Nordic “Ja Ja Ja” Club Night which is taking place at The Lexington, London on 27 January (tomorrow!). More details (including full line-up and ticket details) can be found inside.
Inspired by forgotten pop, a steady disco-beat and strange sounds from far away, Montée set out to make their band an adventurous one. They play the TLOBF sponsored all-Nordic “Ja Ja Ja” Club Night which is taking place at The Lexington, London this Thursday.
Murmansk open up the TLOBF sponsored all-Nordic “Ja Ja Ja” Club Night which is taking place at The Lexington, London on 27 January. We catch up with them for a brief chat about what we can expect from their performance.
Champagne Riot is the brainchild of two Scandinavians, Caspar Bock and Anders Reuter. Recording from a damp basement in the violent concrete ghetto of Copenhagen they make electronic pop songs, which are true, necessary and straight from the heart.
Born and raised in Reykjavík, Lára Rúnars developed a love of music while growing up listening to her father playing and recording with legendary Icelandic band Grafík. She’ll appear at the TLOBF sponsored Ja Ja Ja Club Night, taking place this Thursday (18 November) at The Lexington, London.
