Eskimo Joe excite at Club NME LA

The Aussies improvise with stand-in drummer

Eskimo Joe excite at Club NME LA
Eskimo Joe played a rousing set at Club NME Los Angeles with Fred Perry Subculture last night (August 22).

The Australian rockers performed several tracks from their latest album 'Black Fingernails, Red Wine', which recently earned a Number One slot on the Aussie charts.

"We're here for your non-stop pleasure," said frontman Kavyen Temperly before the band kicked off their 45-minute set.

"We've been here in the States about a week and a half, or is it two weeks? It's all a blur," he said. "Our drummer had to fly home to Australia after our first day here, so we've replaced him with Joel Quartermain, who's usually on guitar and has never played drums before," Temperly joked.

After their set, Temperly told NME.COM: "This is our first trip to the States, so it's heartening to see that at every gig we're bringing in new fans."

Club NME with Fred Perry Subculture takes place at Spaceland in the Silver Lake neighbourhood of Los Angeles every Wednesday night.

Next Wednesday (August 29), The Like, Chow Nasty and Cabin are set to headline Club NME LA with Fred Perry Subculture.
