Business as usual this Saturday lunchtime here on Hello GoodBye, with a debut live performences on the show from Zapoppin’.
Zapoppin’ are the key proponent of the powerskiffle genre. Thomas G.J. Sharpe and Luke Richards on banjo, harmonium and drums straddling sinister pop, awkward croon and upbeat folk. They have entertained audiences from Penzance to Berlin, summoning great intensity from the most meagre of instruments.
The band have been noted for their ‘black humour and obtuse lyrical themes’ by Clash and in 2010 were said that they ‘could be the face of a new strain of folk once everyone has recovered from their Mumford measles’ by 247 Magazine.
