The Grand Social & U:Mack team up to bring you Ouzo Bazooka, a fascinating Middle Eastern Psych Rock band for their debut Irish show.
The band’s latest release, titled Songs From 1001 Nights, boasts 5 masterfully crafted tracks that draw inspiration from vintage Middle Eastern psychedelia and groove surf rock sounds of the 60s and 70s. Songs From 1001 Nights transports listeners from the sweltering banks of the Nile, through Tel Aviv's bustling city streets, down to a California beach, and back around to the spice scented alleys of Istanbul in one hot rodded magic carpet ride. The music is textured and rich, peppered with hazily winding guitar licks and the authentic oriental flavour that Ouzo Bazooka are famous for. The EP has already received much attention and praise, being described as “a soaring adventure in exotic reverb and swirling lysergic synth hooks”.
Hailing from Dublin, Punk Rockers- Panik Attaks consists of Rob Walsh (Cold Comfort), Mick Pyro (Republic of Loose), Trevor Keogh (New Secret Weapon), Alex Harvey (Phazam Haze) Rían Trench (solar Bears/ Leo Drezden.

- Minor fall, Major lift.
The band are fresh out of the studio after recording their Debut E.P which will be released over the coming months but it's at their live shows when you can really come to terms with what this stellar line up is capable of.
