The Truth: WHISTLEJACKET live in South London. They consist of George (vox / guitar), Danny (bass), Doug (guitar), Mickey (keyboards) and Sam (drums). On September 23rd they release a limited edition vinyl album which brings together their two digital EP releases thus far, ‘Oh Brother’ and ‘What I Ate On Sunday’, in one giant tsunami of neo-grunge fuzzrock tsound. The release coincides with live dates in Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark and The Netherlands with a headline show at The Lexington in London Town to polish things off on September 19th and full dates lurk below.

Whistlejacket previously whistled up a storm with their first five-track ‘What I Ate On Sunday’ EP, which was released in February. If alt.radio smashes like ‘Stay-N’ and ‘Holiday’ back then indicated a shimmering, low-slung face-off between Teenage Fanclub and Sonic Youth then the four-song ‘Oh Brother’ EP - which was released on September 2nd - fittingly saw the quintet growing up, adding groovy motorik undercurrents and trashy wig-outs to their already pretty darned tempestuous indierock template with tracks like ‘Oh Brother’ and ‘Hotter Than Heaven’, as you can hear here: http://www.thebeatjuice.com/trax/2016/08/30/17765/stream-whistlejackets-oh-brother-ep/

It makes sense, too: over the past year Whistlejacket have shared stages with the frenetically cosmic likes of Diiv, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Yuck and Bully and stealthily worked the London underground scene with shows for Moth Club, Bad Vibrations, Club Fandango and John Kennedy’s X-posure as well as their own admirable DIY promoting endeavours. Go smell the fresh gigging psychpop love here, here and there:
