ARTISTS — #CC14 — FRI 20 & SAT 21 JUNE 2014

“powerful, melodic and full of emotion”


Desperate Journalist are a North London quartet consisting of Jo Bevan (vocals), Simon Drowner (bass), Rob Hardy (guitar) and Caz Hellbent (drums). Lured together by fate and a fierce sense of what makes alternative music actually really bloody alternative, they four began their journey in 2013. They started causing ruffles  with their ‘Cristina’  and ‘Organ’ singles last year and building a fanbase with their hectic live shows which blend gothic sensibilities with sensible post-punk machinations. Their latest single ‘Happening’ will be released in May on Giant Haystacks/Fierce Panda.
