Reclaiming for a new generation the poetry of Dylan, the stark beauty and unhinged rock and roll of mid 70s John Cale and Badfinger’s melancholic timeless song-craft this is Bandicoot. Their sound flows like post industrial city 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.

“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 Wahol’s Factory brought to life on Swansea’s rainy streets” – Libertino
