The Wave Pictures
Canvey Island Baby

Fresh from a Billy Childish collaboration, these true-to-life indie-rock-’n’-rollers have a bash at some Wilko Johnson standards to honour the former Dr Feelgood guitarist beating cancer a couple of years back. The link from Johnson’s idiosyncratic take on r’n’b to ...view item »


The Wave Pictures
Brushes With Happiness

The new album from the The Wave Pictures, Brushes With Happiness, has a name inspired by the drummer, Jonny Helm’s positive way with the trap set. Content-wise, the album follows a similar to path to their laid-back 2016 effort, A Season In Hull, and like that album it was recorded live in one day. Violet sparkle coloured ...view item »


Stanley Brinks & The Wave Pictures
Wakefield

Raging through the European calypso-folk-underground, Herman Dune has been making cheerful singalong songs since the 1990s. After changing his name to Stanley Brinks, his music has become less organized and even more endearing. Wakefield, taken from his new album My Ass, and b-side Dol...view item »


The Wave Pictures
City Forgiveness

The Wave Pictures have been on tour to the US of A and have come back with an even wider array of guitar solos. There’s literally thousands of them on this new double LP (it would be a single LP if you took off all the solo-ing) and some of them go on for-fucking-ever. At best it recalls Neil Young, at wors...view item »

The Wave Pictures
Bamboo Diner In The Rain

UK indie-blues outfit The Wave Pictures have a new album in the form of Bamboo Diner In The Rain. Once again, the group’s kitchen-sink songs are full of wit, though this album makes a change from the last acoustic one by being fully electrified: the rich tone of classic electric blues runs throughout the record. R...view item »

A Season In Hull

On A Season in Hull, the fourteenth studio album from English rockers The Wave Pictures, the group return to their lo-fi roots. Recorded live with a single microphone, this vinyl LP on Wymeswold Records relies on impeccable songwriting and charming grooves. The immediacy of the recording reminds...view item »

Strange Fruit For David

The Wave Pictures: Strange Fruit For David (Moshi Moshi) The 'she said' style lyric that's emblazoned on the back of the sleeve is worth a read before you actually listen to the song itself. The instrumentation is very much in the neo-folk style of the likes of Johnny Flynn. acoustic guitar, bass, drums and handclaps. It's the cringe worthy lyrics ...view item »

The Fire Alarm

Opening with a distinct 80s bass-heavy surfpunk riff, but with lush choruses, it’s no wonder The Fire Alarm is one of our favorite cuts off Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon. The Wave Pictures are releasing this joyful and oldschool take on 7” with a hopefully equally appealing b-side in ...view item »

On lime green vinyl, the exact same colour as a t-shirt I was forced to wear the other night at some work-related thing or other. Just for the record - lime green is NOT my colour. Anyway this is the latest in a series of Where It's At Is Where You Are 7”s. This is like the kind of ...view item »

Blue Harbour

The Wave Pictures return with yet another twee quite romantic sounding single. It has all the hallmarks of a classic Wave Pictures song. Well played guitars. Brush style drum strokes. Yearning vocals that sound quite nice. The title track Blue Harbour has some great lyrics, something about pissing in the sea. It's done in such a catchy way and i...view item »

Sweetheart EP

The Wave Pictures i've got the oddest soft spot for considering two of them used to back Darren Hayman in Hefner - one of my least favourite bands EVER. I'm assuming David Tattersal is the singer, he has that strange, faintly jarring voice that stops a hairs breadth short of being grating. But he just has this fantastic knack of conveying the do...view item »

The Wave Pictures / Darren Hayman
Bruce Springsteen Tribute

Look what I have here its a split 7" single between Darren Hayman and The Wave Pictures. Both cover songs by Bruce Springsteen. Darren Hayman does an indie/electro-pop version of 'Girls in their Summer Clothes' and its not too bad really in a Casiotone for the Painfully Alone/Magnetic Fields type way. On the flip side The Wave Pictures attempt...view item »

Watching Charlie’s Angels

The Wave Pictures next with 'Watching Charlie's Angels' which is what I'd rather be doing right now. This is one of those mundane observations of everyday life type tunes that some folks find endearing. I however don't. I'm reminded a lot of Darren Hayman and Phil has just declared that "They really are the new Hefner". I was flabbergaste...view item »

Stanley Brinks & The Wave Pictures

...It just went up to twee factor 10 in here. The latest album from Mr Brinks (or Brinksy) is full of lo-fi laments and odes to lost loves. It has a great sense of fun though. Anyone who name checks Bono in the first couple of lines in a song gets my approval. The production is nice though, very simple sounding, and not drenched in reverb, whi...view item »

Instant Coffee Baby

It's coffee this morning for me. The coffee link becomes apparent when I pick up The Wave Pictures CD 'Instant Coffee Baby' which is a lively old skool indie collection of uncluttered romantic & humorous jingles weighing in (initially) somewhere between The Brilliant Corners & Milky Wimpshake. There's definitely a touch of genuine soul &...view item »

If You Leave It Alone

After about twenty seconds of 'If You Leave It Alone' Brian said "This must be The Wave Pictures". Any band who can be recognised so quickly and easily in this blasted age of postmodern bloody homogeny must be doing something totally right so hats off to this Hefner-esque band of bards.

Darren Hayman & The Wave Pictures
Madrid

I take a day off work and what do I find upon my return... A Darren Hayman & The Wave Pictures CD aptly titled 'Madrid' as it was recorded live in April of 2007 in that very Spanish city. I must confess to not really being a fan as I find this stuff a bit insipid and occasionally irritating. I've heard worse live albums though and if you're a f...view item »

Just Like A Drummer EP

The Wave Pictures are one of those bands we've had loads of records by and I couldn't really tell you much about 'em at all. I think I've always been on the toilet or something when their records get played. It's not deliberate.... just a huge coincidence. They do happen. I'm always on the toilet me. It's a great place to hang out. The 'Just Like A...view item »
