The Harley 8pm Sharp!
O Children are the kind of band that have captured the imagination of us here at Do Or Die towers, they rose from ashes of Bono Must Die.
O.Children formed little over a year ago with Tobi O’Kandi (Vox), Andi Sleath (Drums) Gauthier Ajarrista (Guitar) and Harry James (Bass) taking their name from a song title (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds).
They released their debut single "Dead Disco Dancer" last year, which also had a truly excellent remix by The Golden Filter. Their second single 'Ruins' released recently has been getting a lot of attention and has really pricked up the ears.
Frontman Tobi is like nothing you have ever heard or seen before. Towering and intimidating at 6 foot 8, he has complete command of the stage; channelling perhaps both Grace Jones and Lux Interior. Each band member brings something completely different to the mix, each has a different attitude, fashion or style.
O.Children have that rare combination of confidence, talent and swagger. They can actually pen a lyric, have a distinctive personality and doing something completely different; pop with passion and determination.
Supporting we have Sheffield's very own Nerves, having only recently registered on our radar. Dark and intense basslines, moody and stabbing guitar riffs, with vocals delicately delivered before punching you in the face. Really excited about them playing for us!
