A selection of images from our recent shoot with Tim Dunk at locations in and around the city of Leeds >>>>
“By putting local boys Galaxians on your bill, you’re almost guaranteeing a party that shimmers and glitters like a roller disco ramped up to 11. Warbling synths, wobbling bass and beats that’d make even the most resistant of bodies shake, Galaxians are something of a secret weapon. No matter who they’re billed with, from Tom Tom Club to Horse Meat Disco, their modern disco-house vibes are enough to enrapture any and every audience put in front of them.” The 405 // Garden Party preview: 5 Bands We Want To See
“I’m personally looking forward to Roisin Murphy, as well as Little Dragon and Todd Terje. On the DJ front it has to be Craig Charles, Joy Orbison and finally having Kerri Chandler play for us. Special shout to Bambooman and Galaxians, two local outfits who will be performing on The Skinny stage.” Matt Long // festival organiser // About To Blow
“At the Skinny Stage, Galaxians succeed more-so than Craig Charles to counter the mid-day festival blues. As soon as the two-piece Leeds-based outfit takes to the stage, those sitting down take to their feet. Jed Skinner somehow coolly manages to replicate the sound of a four-layer melody section using two synthesisers. Matt Woodward on drums keeps the manic synth output locked to a sleazy groove. The pair’s most recent four track EP, Personal Disco Component, is much appreciated. One or two sporadic rays of sun even get involved in the party.” Review: Sunday At The Garden Party // Skiddle

GALAXIANS // DISCODEINE // LE TEMPS MACHINE // TOURS, FRANCE // 22.02.14 // images by Carmen Morand
Poor Trent. Following a long and messy night at Sapphic Traffic we made him get out of bed just at the point when he’d probably only just got in it. He brought his fancy camera, his skillz and a bunch of fun ideas to Wharf Chambers, where we were busy drinking espresso and discussing Ash dieback over the Saturday papers.
Wharf Chambers was the obvious choice. Our friends are there, it feels like something of a spiritual home for us, and they gots all those Seabrook’s crisp flavours you just never seem to see in shops these days.
We think Trent did an incredible job and in return we’ll be loading him up with all of the food he likes. Amazingly, this was Trent’s first project documenting a band visually in a non-performance format. But brother racked that muthafucka like he was a pro, don’t you agree?
