The origins of the band date back to 1998 under the name of Blind Summit along with the drummer, Hugh J, who later left the band. Since then, they have not stopped making music that is reminiscent of greats from bygone eras, such as Modern Lovers.
The Wave Pictures is the group which recreates lo-fi rock music; an intense reunion with garage of the past, which is achieved thanks to the recording on cassettes in the old, classic style. David Tattersall’s band releases an album a year, so they now have fourteen albums under their belt and a fifteenth on the way, which will be released on 11th November under the title of Bamboo Dinner in the Rain.
Their latest album, A Season in Hull, has two sides, like the former cassettes and has thirteen songs in which the influences of Billy Childish, with whom they co-produced Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon, are more than evident.
Songs with a good feeling and good rock with lo-fi touches, which give a special character to their alternative rock, impregnated with jazz sounds. Their music, which has matured throughout their career spanning over almost two decades, reaches its high point with their latest album, Bamboo Dinner in the Rain.
