In less than a year since their humble and humid debut performance in an east village basement
back in September 2006, Klaxons have unwittingly created a â€œgenre that doesnâ€™t existâ€, have
accidentally reinvented Rave music for hipsters & day glow wear for the catwalk. Theyâ€™ve baffled
then blown away critics with their intense and awe-inspiring live shows, released a highly acclaimed
and innovative debut album â€œMyths of the Near Futureâ€ that even received a nod from the Thin
White Duke himself. Theyâ€™ve signed a major record deal with Geffen, won Best New Act at the NME
Awards, have been nominated for a Mercury Music Award, have predicted the end of the world for
us all and just for good measure, whilst on stage performing their apocalyptic Horsemen of 2012 in France,
Jamie also managed to break a few bones along the way.
You can read Jamie’s statement & Simon’s blog from the road *here*.
poor jamie reynolds.
Very rarely do we see a band that can turn the sounds, scenes and street culture upside down and
so unexpectedly so. After signing their first UK record deal based upon their first ever live show
together as a band, they then proceeded to play at Glastonbury on their second. Indeed, this
journey has proven to be a fast one for this London based trio and the story for these sci-fi
literary enthusiasts is merely on itâ€™s first chapter.
See Klaxons at Glasto!
