STANLEY BRINKS and The Wave Pictures are not a singer and his band, but a collaboration between and English group and a French musician.
Galway will be able to check out this partnership when they play Strange Brew at the Róisín Dubh on Thursday March 13 at 9pm.
Stanley Brinks began performing as André Herman Düne in 1999 with his brother David in the band Herman Düne, before calling it a day in 2006, following which André began using the stage name Stanley Brinks.
Born in Paris, Stanley has lived in New York, San Francisco, Malta, and Berlin; collaborated with the New York so-called ‘Antifolk’ scene; recorded and toured with Norwegian trad musicians; and played with The Wave Pictures.
The Wave Pictures are David Tattersall, Franic Rozycki, and Jonny “Huddersfield” Helm. Inspired by the likes of Jonathan Richman, they have released five critically acclaimed studio albums; played numerous sessions on BBC 6 Music, Radio 1 and XFM; and supported Jeffrey Lewis.
Also on the bill are Squarehead. Roy Duffy (singer/guitarist ), Ian McFarlane (bass ), and Ruan Van Vliet (drums ) are one of Ireland’s finest indie bands, who effortlessly combine garage rock rawness, punk grit, catchy pop hooks, surf guitar, and Beach Boys/Beatles vocal harmonies. Check out their debut album Yeah Nothing.
