Inspired as much by the sound of your neighbours arguing at 3 o’clock in the morning and the wailing of sirens and the crashing of doors in a dawn raid as they are by their musical heroes, The November Five have been rightly recognised as one of London’s most incendiary and exciting live bands.
Creating a rock ‘n ‘roll noise that’s made when MENSA collides with ASBO, The November Five have received international radio support from stations as varied as BBC 6 Music, Xfm (plus a session for John Kennedy’s Xposure show) and Radio 1 as well as KROQ’s legendary tastemaker Rodney Bingenheimer in LA and Rob Quicke’s nationally syndicated Britsound Show in the US.
The November Five’s debut album, If You’re Satisfied You Are Dead, is out on November 5.
“The November Five combine the driving sneer of Earl Brutus, some of the atmospherics of the Arcade Fire if they weren’t twig-stroking Canadians, and some very British bombast – in The November Five’s hands, guitars do, very much, squall.” – The Quietus
“If you like the incendiary music of The MC5, The Stooges, The Birthday Party, Jim Jones Revue or The Cramps then go download their debut single, ‘Closure b/w Flame’, and look out for next single, ‘Awake in a Daze b/w It’s Not Enough’, hitting the stores (real and online) very soon. Even better still, go watch then live as you will not be disappointed in the slightest.” – Shindig magazine
