We’re excited to bring Desperate Journalist to Coventry for their first Midlands headline date for more than a year!
“A modern masterpiece” 10/10 Louder Than War review of ‘Grow Up’ album (2017)
DESPERATE JOURNALIST are a North London post-punk quartet whose last album ‘Grow Up’ released on the legendary Fierce Panda label to widespread critical acclaim. Following support slots with The Wedding Present and Marion and being selected by Suede to feature on their ‘Songs for the Blue Hour’ Spotify playlist, we’re thrilled to host Desperate Journalist on this intimate date ahead of the release of their third album, ‘In Search Of The Miraculous’, released on 22 February 2019.
Like Minutemen playing metal or Cardiacs vs. Shellac, GUNTHER PRAGUE’s stated aim is “writing and recording more music than could ever make any sense”. In October 2018 they released their second full length album “Capital Rats”, recorded in Chicago with with the legendary Steve Albini of Shellac / Big Black.
