Bio

The Woo!worths make infectious, colourful, harmony-heavy & rhythmic Pop music with a blend of organic & electronic sounds. Their trio of members originate from London, Brussels & Brighton but their music making happens in Brighton & London. Their debut release is in the making

A bit about where The Woo!worths came from and where they've been so far.......

Richard Smith and Steve Baker teamed up to work on some of Mr. Smith's songs soon after their previous band had ceased operations. After finishing a few demo's, forming a band seemed logical. A name arrived, a myspace profile was created and soon they were offered their first gig - a noisy affair at a packed out Prince Albert in Brighton.

Some time later, they recruited the eminently versatile Jo Bramli (Largo, We Are Snazzy & Imitation Electric Piano) on synths & vocals, bringing new textures and colours; and The Woo!worths MK2 was formed. The band has recently expanded to a full six piece live set up so the songs now sound bigger and better than ever!

The band have played on many stages including The Big Chill, The Dublin Castle, The Old Queens Head, 93 Feet East, Proud Camden, 229, Coalition, Jam, The Prince Albert, The Fly Bar, Notting Hill Arts Club, Audio, Shoreditch House, Concorde2, The Hope, Monto Water Rats & The Rhythm Factory.

In summer 2009, legendary photographer Rankin picked the band from thousands of entries as winners of his 'Rankin Live' competition

Their prize was a photo-shoot with Rankin and a slot on a major stage at The Big Chill 2009 where they were spotted and subsequently asked to entertain guests and VIP's with an afternoon and late night live show in East Rooms VIP area. The experience was a huge highlight in the bands career to date and the band returned to The Big Chill in 2010 playing on the Solaraid stage as well as headlining the East Rooms Guest area on Saturday.

The photos from the Rankin shoot made the pages of Esquire and Dazed & Confused magazines and Rankin asked the band to support Little Boots at the 'Destroy Rankin' exhibition at Philip de Pury gallery in London. They were also the only band to entertain the guests at the Rankin Live closing party.

One of the highlights of 2010 so far was opening for Little Dragon in Brighton. As big fans of theirs, it was a pleasure to share a stage as well as their discerning audience.

Unsigned, non-managed and independent, they are currently writing and recording their debut release as well as developing their live set up.

"Like a very up for it Hot Chip getting down with a synthed up Talking Heads and a less wibbly wobbly MGMT…..all too good" - Dublin Castle Website.

"'Konichiwa' and 'Idle Hands' are twin facets of a perfect pop personality, bedroom synths from 1981 & vintage Edwyn Collins guitars....certainly worth checking out" - Brighton Source Mag.

"Combining the drum machines and bleepiness of Hot Chip with the quirky Englishness of Tim Ten Yen or the Divine Comedy is a winner to start with, and by the time they’ve thrown in some vocoder and funk guitar on ‘Konichiwa’ you’re looking at (well, listening to) something really impressive...... genuinely exciting music!" - Toto Blog.

"they were really good and made me dance around whilst (relatively) sober.. 'Konichiwa' sounds like Daft Punk would if they hadn't been robotised" - Pier Pressure.
