Jamie Lidell lines up new band for video, tour

on April 22, 2010, 9:05am

While you most-likely don’t listen to Jamie Lidell for the accompaniment, we now have the first information and glimpse at the men lucky enough to grace the stage with him. For his forthcoming world tour, Lidell’s backing band will consist of Jake Aron (guitars/bass), Ludwig Persik (drums/perc) and Guillermo Brown (perc/rhythm, keys/synths). And, as I have just seen video proving their existence I think I’ll let the main-man himself entertain you:

“New York City, 1968.  Oh wait – 2010! A nostalgic glimpse into the now as 70s tech hangs with the laptop, Blazer hang with the bizarre and Lidell gets a buzz on about the future shows with an ALL NEW crew of heavy retro pioneers.
Practicing here under the hot lights in a shoddily lit westside cupboard, things are sounding unreal. The soundtrack to this is a lost recording of a new song called “your sweet boom”… never heard before and never to be heard again.

1,2 Zen explosion and we out!”

I don’t know what to say about that. Check out the band perform below, or in person at any of its upcoming tour dates.
