Sublime Space Surfers Japanese Television bring the magic to Ramsgate on April 15th!
A swirling wave of reverb-drenched organ, garage-fuzz guitar, hypno-motorik bass and pounding, voodoo drums. This is as cool as it gets, frankly.
“High octane surf psych. Awesome” – Brighton Source
The band first came together through a shared love of fuzz boxes, Joe Meek and UFOs. Taking the primal stomp of early garage bands and the wild, sonic wheeling of later psych oddballs, Japanese Television mix in strange instruments and homemade effects pedals to create something odd and unique.
Their 2019 Marc Riley BBC 6 Music Session spread their cosmic, beachy gospel far and wide.
Having made Best of Year lists across BBC 6 Music with each EP, Japanese Television sold out shows across the UK with their last two tours, along with festival appearances across the UK & Europe, including Lewes Psych Festival and Holland’s Left of the Dial.
2021 saw the band collaborating with their favourite electronic artists and releasing a remix version of the ‘III’ EP. Featuring such legends as UNKLE and Gabe Gurnsey among others, the exclusive Record Store Day green vinyl release received support from Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music.
Only Japanese Television are 100% Space Surf.
