Brighton has a strange but pleasant scene. Be it, music, skateboarding, art or general culture, you can pretty much discover something interesting on the coastline down there without having to dig too hard. We discovered The Wytches at a show in London last week, a new band that have just released this new video and are making themselves heard in the run up to the 2013.
If you take the psych garage-rock vibes of the 13th Floor Elevators and MC5, then pound them into your ear canal with a dose of Bleach era Nirvana, you will be somewhere close in finding their sound. Of course though, every band has it’s own unique formula and The Wytches deliver noise filled, catchy tunes that are worthy of your time.
You have probably noticed that the internet right now is talking a lot of Nirvana, and reminiscing on a lot of grunge related topics due to the 20th Anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind record. At the time of its release, the band were managed by Danny Goldberg and John Silva at Gold Mountain Management in the USA who watched this album’s popularity grow overnight and then explode. This week at Music Radar, Goldberg is interviewed and discusses discovering the band and how Nevermind became a phenomenon.
Read the full interview here and get an inside scoop of the band that killed off soft rock overnight with quotes like this:
“You know, Kurt didn’t become a star by accident, he became a star on purpose. Then he found out he didn’t like everything that came with being a star. It was hard for him. He didn’t like being recognized on the street or in airports, and stuff like that. But that doesn’t mean he didn’t want to be successful, because he absolutely did.”
