Night Of Sevens are a five piece psychedelic garage-rock outfit based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, playing their first gig on 07/7/07. The band describe themselves as an “autonomous, lyrical, garage rock ‘n’ roll movement upholding the age old fight between good and evil”, and pride themselves on their DIY ethos.
After initially recording and releasing several ‘live’ demos and extended improvised jams in 2008, Night Of Sevens then built their own studio in a room in the old derelict Tyne Tees Television Studios.
The band immersed themselves in the building’s rich musical heritage, having previously been home to seminal music television program The Tube, hosted by Jools Holland and Paula Yates in the 80’s, which showcased such bands as Joy Division, The Smiths, The Cure, Killing Joke, Miles Davis and even Madonna.
Inspired by the cultural history of the building Night Of Sevens set about writing and recording an abundance of material for release on their own label, Ragtag Records, after turning down ‘singles’ deals from two independent labels.
Night of Sevens are renowned for their visceral and show stealing live performances and their reputation has gone before them making them first choice to enjoy exposure that comes with supporting artists such as Television Personalities, Harlem, Twisted Wheel, Future of The Left, Sons and Daughters, The Victorian English Gentlemen’s Club, Nine Black Alps, Detroit Social Club, Bad For Lazarus and Sleepy Sun.
