Garageland Profile

Renee Jones
4 Sep 2015

NME claimed that Garageland had “enough catchiness and sonic adrenaline to incite a teenage riot … a collision of Sonic Youth, Pavement and a massive lorryful of hooks … half Pixies, half-mass-slaughter-of-oxen ... bloody marvellous.”

Whether you’re a fan of Garageland or a newcomer to their music, this is a bang-on description of a band that started with a bunch of high school friends who enjoyed playing at parties, and ended up being one of Flying Nun’s shining international hopes.
