Beechwood debutes on European soil this June14-03-2018
What happens when an anti-social petty thief, a male hustler, and a delinquent runaway come together to join forces in the streets of NYC? One of two things, usually. Either the birth of a gang of misfit criminals, or a legendary rock and roll band. Luckily, for society's sake, the latter has turned out to be true for Beechwood. Echoes of everything from Stiv Bators to the Electric Prunes to Velvet Underground to Johnny Thunders and with an obvious love of the Nuggets boxset.
Earlier this year they released Songs From The Land Of Nod on Alive Records. This is a haunted record but one of no mean achievement oozing with edgy cut-throat energy and cool sleazy grace. The kind of record rarely heard since the prime of The Ramones and The Cramps it truly doesn’t put a foot wrong.
In June Beechwood will be over for a select number of shows:
01 JUNE: Groningen (NL) @ Vera
02 JUNE: Oberhausen (DE) @ Druckluft
03 JUNE: Amsterdam (NL) @ Paradiso Noord, Tolhuistuin
05 JUNE: Mannheim (DE) @ Kurzbar
