AS MAMAS + THE LIZARDS + LYCIO + CALLUM KERRIGAN
£6adv • Ages 18+
— As Mamas
Formed just over two years ago, As Mamas are a two piece psych band consisting of Harrison Baird-Whitman on guitar and vocals and Joe Devine on drums. Influenced by the roots of rock n roll and the waves of 60s psychedelia the duo create a raw blend of classic garage psych with the occasional drop of blues to soak your sorrows.
— The Lizards
Psychedelic garage rock four-piece based in Birmingham, seamlessly alternating between the sonic fury of distortion-filled side of psych (think Ty Segall, The Wytches) and more laid-back, hazy jams influenced by the 60s and the likes of Brian Jonestown Massacre. Effect-heavy guitar riffs are complimented by reverb-soaked, fuzzy vocals and, following a recent change in line-up – spacey synth hooks. The Lizards have appeared at psych-fest Ritual Union in Oxford and Nottingham’s Dot to Dot, following support slots with HMLTD and JAWS.
Out of Birmingham, Lycio combine distinctive vocals, real & electronic drums alongside pad/synth textures. Despite their interest in sound design, Lycio ultimately prioritise the song – great songwriting, vocals & melody. Everything is played 100% live; no backing tracks, no stock loops. Hybrid music with that essential human feel.
