Birmingham Promoters & Funnel Live present:SCOTT LAVENE + THE NUAges 18+ • £5advwww.birminghampromoters.com-----------Like all the greatest music Scott Lavene Music and Other Adventures is all at once familiar and yet hard to place. A storyteller, delivering real life vignettes over wonk beats and scuzz riffs, he is a 21st century take on those maverick genius outsiders that Stiff Records used to release back in the punk wars.Lavene has the lyrical smarts and the fairground bark of an Ian Dury, the incisive wordplay of a Costello and the deadpan pop of Madness in his creative DNA, along with the street poetry of an Essex boy version of Lou Reed, the dislocated funk of Talking Heads, the jellied eel lyrical bounce of Chas and Dave, and the inventive surreal see-saw of a Tom Waits, and many other nonconformists.WATCH: https://youtu.be/ub0yADb2Z-w-----------Welcome to The NU. The futuristic music project has ambitions to reach NU heights, creating pumping soundscapes for the 21st century; The NU combines the electric atmosphere of the dance world and the raw energy of rock n roll to pioneer a NU approach to music. Drawing inspiration from acts such as INXS, Crystal Castles and Janes Addiction, expect future releases to dive into countless spectrums of euphoria that has every intention of sparking that increasingly precious goose bump feeling.Receiving radio plays from BBC Introducing In the West Midlands and smashing shows around the UK including a Headline set at BIMM Birmingham's end of term showcase at The Castle and Falcon, The NU is definitely one to watch in 2019.LISTEN: https://spoti.fi/2GOlmO7
