Tip of the Week: Eagulls - Council Flat Blues

Post categories:

Are they eagles? Are they seagulls? No they are Eagulls. Although judging by their pictures, they are far more favourable to eagles, and somewhat neglectful of poor old seagulls.

Eagulls are a five piece based in Leeds who have been described as "the opposite of easy listening". There are some other pretty juicy descriptions out there, like "Eagulls drag rock back down the tunnel into the depths, only to explode like a volcano on an overwhelmed therapist's couch" and "these are the songs of men who still have dirt under their fingernails, each track seemingly coated with a veneer of sweat." Don't you just love the descriptiveness of music bloggers!?

If you live in Leeds, you're in luck, as from Oct 9th - Nov 14th they are playing a few home gigs ending with Constellations Festival at Leeds University. Actually, looking at that festival line-up, even if you're not from Leeds it might be worth making the trip with acts like Fourtet, Broken Social Scene, and former tip of the week Runaround Kids also playing.

Our tip this week - Council Flat Blues - is soon to be released on new Moshi Moshi imprint Not Even Records. It also featured on Eagulls' Songs Of Prey EP, which they released on cassette for £1.50. Old. School.
