High Hopes: The Wanton Bishops
Lebanon’s new garage rock heroes arrive in a whirlwind of blues, jam sessions and bar fights.
Beirut doesn’t have the most thriving of rock industries. Indeed, in a business sense there’s barely an industry at all, which makes The Wanton Bishops a pleasantly surprising discovery. To the UK they’re dynamic rock newcomers, while back home they’re sort of famous – not that appearing on MTV Lebanon necessarily equals ‘fame’, apparently.
Sleep With The Lights On is out on February 23 via Suburban Records. Walk It Home, a documentary by Red Bull Media House, is due in the summer__.
