Reclaiming for a new generation the poetry of Dylan, the stark beauty and unhinged rock n roll of mid-70s John Cale, and Badfinger’s melancholic timeless songcraft, this is Bandicoot.
Their sound flows like post-industrial blues through Swansea’s rain-soaked concrete streets. Bandicoot have earned a ferocious reputation, thanks to their raucous, overflowing live shows that spin euphorically from post-punk and krautrock to glam stomp and art-pop sensuality at the drop of a note.
With headline shows at Welsh venues Clwb Ifor Bach, Sin City and Le Pub to name a few, 2021 is looking to be a very exciting year for the band.
“Bandicoot are wired instinctively to the cathartic screams of John Lennon’s Plastic Ono Band, the lustful danger of the Velvet Underground, and CAN’s cinematic propulsion. They are the art-house provocateurs of Warhol’s Factory brought to life on Swansea’s rainy streets” – Libertino
