THE CRIMEA

SXSW Gig Details

SXSWDetails of The Crimea’s gig at the South By SouthWest festival in Austin, Texas this month are now up on the gigs page. FWIW they’re on in Exodus at 8pm, followed just a little later by the wonderful Biffy Clyro. Don’t ask about tickets, there’s not room in the price column to fit it in the official amount, but you may be able to pick some up for the individual gig on the door, but don’t rely on that.
All the info is also available on The Crimea’s webpage on the SXSW website, which features a free download of Lottery Winners On Acid too.
And the Austin Cronicle have previewed some UK band’s appearances at the festival, including The Crimea. Click More to see what they say.

New Model Army
Anarchy in the UK

Despite what may have gushed on you via the UK music press (Q magazine: “British music will conquer the world in 2005″), this isn’t 1994 all over again. Brit pop’s as dead as Dickens’ doorknob (thanks, Robbie Williams), and far worse, so is John Peel.

Still, there’s something in the air, and not just Steve Lamacq’s BBC 1 show, either. Glaswegians Franz Ferdinand’s SXSW 04 success has kick-started another wave of new UK acts. Out of the 95 UK acts scheduled for this year’s Music Festival, here’s a skimming through the cream of the crop ? the usual suspects, raw recruits, the good, badass, and the downright odd. And Fatboy Slim. Remember him?

Meet the New Boss

SXSW returners the Crimea’s EP Lottery Winners on Acid verges on the painfully honest, with jangle-pop eclectics and some 30 releases in three years (!).
