Twenty years after forming in Wymeswold, Leicestershire as teenagers, The Wave Pictures have gone on to be one of the UK’s most prolific and beloved bands. Fond of classic rock, jazz and blues, they are also one of the most accomplished, with Tattersall’s guitar solos becoming the stuff of legend. They have collaborated with varying bright stars of the musical firmament, such as last year’s rock’n’roll surf-garage-rock project with Charles Watson from Slow Club, as new band The Surfing Magazines, or their ongoing partnership with ex-Herman Dune member Stanley Brinks, or the very close partnership with Billy Childish for 2015’s Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon.
The beloved trio of Jonny Helm (drums), Dave Tattersall (guitar & vocals) and Franic Rozycki (bass), further demonstrate their tight bond, weaving effortless melodies with mind bending sonic and emotional force.
The prolific band has referred to electric folk to describe their music, but they also pay tribute to the roots of blues and classic rock n’ roll. Moreover, they add all the beautiful nonsense that comes along with improvisation. Thus, they are also genuinely punk, too.
“The Wave Pictures are one of life's real joys. The band's catalogue is whimsical, wry, touching, affecting, and downright daft, carving out their own unique place in the musical universe.” - Clash Magazine
“As his Tom Verlaine guitar tones drip forth like liquid gold, you can’t help falling ever deeper beneath this record’s spell.” - Mojo
