Johnny Kowalski & Sexy Weirdos perform their first Birmingham gig of 2015 to celebrate Dodgy Greg’s (Subvert) 50th Birthday, with support from hip-hop-skankers Jam Tidy and dancehall-punks Malarkey.
Malarkey: Bizarre, hectic, and a little frightening Malarkey are more akin to a erratic-reggae-nightmare than a sedate peace ‘n’ love vibe-fest. Aptly called Juggernaut, Malarkey’s front man belts out rougher-than-rough-neck dancehall vocal over distorted punk and ska-brass outbursts, making for an incredible left field sound clash. With a palpable love of ganja and mayhem Malarkey perform ahead of the release of their debut album, Kebabylon, due in April.
Jam Tidy: Performed by skankers for skankers, Jam Tidy return after a short live hiatus to bring positive vibes with their high octane hip-hop-reggae-balkan amalgam. Sharing an amazingly cohesive onstage chemistry emcees Stefan Quarry and Morgan Lucas always leave a party in their wake. Big vibes 101% guaranteed.
Johnny Kowalski & The Sexy Weirdos: Bound to end in sweaty and reckless abandon with drunken arm-in-arm swaying and impossibly-quick-tempo-dancing to boot, their live intensity is best fitting for someone who wants to lose-their-fucking-mind, and so you can! Having made their name playing squat parties, exhibition spaces and an extensive list of UK venues and festivals, the Birmingham group are well-versed in whipping up crowds into a frenzy and leaving ’em gasping for air.
