Biography

SXSW confirmed!!

With an explosive debut album as well as countless gigs, festivals and support slots under their belts, St Deluxe have bottled and distilled their sound ready to unleash it on the world. Think Dinosaur Jr, My Bloody Valentine, Teenage Fanclub and a whole host of other noise-niks updated for 2010. Ear-bleedingly loud and ready for SXSW - get them while their hot!"
Vic Galloway, BBC Radio 1 & BBC Radio Scotland.

St Deluxe make Glaswegian fuzz-pop with beautiful noise. Fans already include Creation Records founder Alan McGee ("St. Deluxe are brilliant, a Scottish Nirvana for the 21st Century"), Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake ("Scotland's Uber noise/pop merchants. I love 'em!"), Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite ("Great guitar pop. They have a fine collection of guitar pedals and are not afraid to use them!") and Tim Burgess of the Charlatans “I have played New Wave Stars on repeat constantly, great lyrics great sound kinda mixes up Bleach era Nirvana, Tom Verlaine and Bandwagonesque period Teenage Fanclub...Pushes all the buttons, MONOCHROME ROCK N ROLL”
Their self-titled UK debut, out on NOW through Poppydisc, showcases 11 songs wrapped in dirty guitars, fuzz bass and off-kilter drums. Influenced by noise-oriented indie-rock troublemakers like Sonic Youth, MBV and Jesus and Mary Chain as well as the scuzz-pop of Pavement, Sebadoh and Dinosaur Jr, the visceral rock thrills are perfectly balanced by addictive melodies.
'St Deluxe' have secured their debut release through Star Sign records in Japan to great acclaim and with distribution throughout Europe and soon Mexcio.
The follow up album is currently being made and features guest producers like Joe Foster (Poppydisc Records/RevOla Records/Creation Records a main contributor of the Early Creation Records and C86 sound), Calvin Johnson of K Records/Beat Happening and Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai and the band have a healthy live reputation thanks to blistering shows across the UK including 2 headline shows at Alan McGee's club Death Disco in London, an enthusiastically received German tour and support slots with underground heroes Sonic Boom (Spectrum/Spacemen 3), Monade (Stereolab), plus what can arguably be one of the most exciting live gigs of 2009 as the main support to a double headline show with Mudhoney and the Vaselines at the HMV Picture house in Edinburgh.
St Deluxe also have played as backing band to Stephen Lawrie of the legendary shoegaze/noise band the Telescopes, playing shows in the UK and recently Norway. They are currently recording a collaboration with Stephen which should see an ep released early 2010.
