Little Barrie

Little Barrie live at The Bodega

  • Monday 28th November 2011
  • Supported by: Kill It Kid
  • Doors open: at 7:00pm

It’s been a long wait, but it’s about to feel very worthwhile. Little Barrie are back, and they’ve brought the much-missed spirit of real rock ‘n’ roll with them. Nearly five years on, the English trio are totally match-fit and ready to return with a new drummer and a strikingly unusual record deal — but the same unshakeable passion for music that got them noticed in the first place. ‘King Of The Waves,’ Little Barrie’s first album for four years, is co-produced by the group with their friend, supporter and longtime collaborator, the mighty Edwyn Collins.

Since we last heard them, they’ve also honed their reputations among the most in-demand musicians in the business, playing live with Primal Scream, on Paul Weller’s ‘22 Dreams’ album and with French Polynesian actress-singer Mareva Galanter. Barrie Cadogan has long been the guitarist to call, and not many have had that request from both Morrissey and Johnny Marr and, recently, from Mark Ronson.

Very appropriately for a band of such renown as a live act, ‘King Of The Waves’ will be released in the UK on Bumpman, the indie label founded by Alan Day, co-owner of the Hawley Arms, the famous venue in Camden, north London. ‘King Of The Waves’ Is already riding its own wave of massive success in Japan. It raced to #1 in iTunes’ alternative album chart and Amazon’s rock album chart there, and #2 in Amazon’s main album chart. Recent gigs by the trio in Japan have seen such an uprising of Little Barriemania that they’ve had to block out entire floors of hotel rooms to keep their obsessive fans at bay.

The band have been sponsored and photographed in Japan by menswear icon Paul Smith, in whose clothes Little Barrie were recently the subject of a prestigious eight-page spread in Japanese Rolling Stone.
