The Lemon Twigs live review - Sebright Arms, London
Venue: Sebright Arms, London
The Lemon Twigs wow this East End crowd
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” says the swaying man at the post-show urinal. “It was like Noddy Holder. Fronting Supertramp. With James Taylor on drums.”
As descriptions go, our drunk friend’s isn’t entirely inaccurate, but Long Island’s Lemon Twigs aren’t an easy band to describe. Newly signed to 4AD on the back of last year’s extremely limited edition What We Know cassette, they’re a baroque outfit steeped in the music of The Beatles, the Beach Boys and Todd Rundgren, which sounds straightforward enough, though their look most definitely isn’t.
