About the tour
The Tubs were formed by two of the primary songwriters from the critically lauded pop group Joanna Gruesome-Owen Williams & George Nicholls- as a way of expanding the dimensions of their ‘‘jubilant’ (New York Times), ‘hook stuffed’ compositions (Pitchfork).
Drawing influence from Antipodean pop, contemporary post-punk, Cleaners from Venus style jangle and Robert Wyatt style pastoralism, The ‘Tubullar Sound’’s breadth is forever growing wider. The ‘Names EP’, sees the group embrace a snarkier, more hostile side of themselves, perhaps attributable to Williams’, bassist Max Warren’s and drummer Matthew Green’s involvement in Sniffany & The Nits (Thrilling Living)- one of London’s most troubling punk bands.
