London pioneers enjoy 'best of both worlds'
Late Of The Pier threw their first ever warehouse party in east London last night (June 6).
Following a period of secrecy and anticipation, the all-nighter took place at the Hearne Street car park, with DJ sets from Annie Mac, Zongamin and Spam Chop manning the decks.
The band teamed up with legendary club promoters Bugged Out to pull the night off.
“They’re a truly trashy London underground band,” explained fan Tabby from Brighton as the club filled up, “and this venue’s perfect for them: a back street car park.”
After a brief support slot from Heartbreak, the synth-pop pioneers finally hit the stage at 1.40am, driving the crowd into a frenzy with recent single ‘Focker’, ‘Space and the Woods’ and ‘Bathroom Gurgle’.
Introducing the song ‘Broken’, vocalist Earl Samuel Dust seemed exasperated at the huge turn out. “This song… is for anyone who likes songs!” he laughed, as the audience broke out in euphoria.
Talking to NME.COM after the gig, keyboardist Jack Paradise expressed his relief; “I liked it!” he beamed. “Sure it was scary, but then again I think we like to be scared. It brings out the best of both worlds.”
