THE DISPLAY TEAM
The Display Team are a high-energy, high-concept, high-pitched band from London. Across many years, two albums and an EP, and countless concerts, they have ploughed their own furrow, demonstrating a stubborn resistance to the obvious tropes of rock music while never denying the beauty of a well-crafted pop melody. Using what are now perhaps old-fashioned tools, they continue to search for new things, ideas that are thus far unsaid and tunes that are as yet unplayed, and deliver them to a public who are unready for them. Their music is at once both majestic and earthy, profane and profound, and enters the body as much through the gut as the ears. The Display Team's music has been influenced by a wide range of pilferable sources, including Frank Zappa, Cardiacs, Mr. Bungle, Queen and a selection of punk and ska bands too numerous (and sometimes obscure) to single out by name. The band themselves also cite Mad Caddies, Madness, Reel Big Fish, Goldfinger, The Specials and The Beach Boys.
The event is free entry, but we will be grateful for any donations which will go towards the venue hire and musicians fees. Thank you!Pay what you want+Service fee
