Genre-Bending Electronica at Wah Wah

Venue: Wah Wah Records, 12 Cross Square, Wakefield, WF1 1PH

When: 3pm – 4pm.

Age Restriction: All ages.

Access information: Ramped access into WAH WAH records.

The show features Toys of Doom, a circuit-bending experimental electronica act who make music by interfering with the circuits of toys, and Johnny Panic & the Bible of Dreams, who marry poetry with electronica.

Poetry you can dance to?

What’s it like? People who like it invariably say one of three very flattering things:

1 “Do you like John Cooper Clarke?”

2 “Do you like Sleaford Mods?”

3 “Have you heard of a band called Yard Act?”

Jimmy Andrex’s ambition in life is that one day, someone will look at the name and ask him if he likes Sylvia Plath.

Tom Robinson is a fan, as are Dexter Bentley on Resonance FM, Shakk on BBC Tees and Ian McMillan. Lately, the work has been connecting with more people and getting more national and regional airplay. Jimmy also appeared recently on Radio 3’s The Verb.

Some recent reviews:

“Transcendental” Ian McMillan

“Superb” Tom Robinson

“Kindred spirits” Kingsley Chapman (Benefits)

“puts a smile on my face and also gets me to think as well.” Shakk (BBC Radio Tees)

“Like Toto in the Wizard of Oz Jimmy peels back the curtain to reveal the reality of a country that gets smaller and weaker by the day.”  Del Owusu (Fresh On The Net).
