GaBlé, a three piece from Normandy, France, writes DIY pop songs with echoes of The Vaselines, Beat Happening, Herman Dune, Moldy Peaches, Why? or Lou Barlow’s solo endeavours. Fidelity, presidential assassinations, suicide and the golden years of retirement are just some of the subjects that Gablé tackle with their unique blend of humour and musical invention. GaBlé’s live show is a sight to behold. Samplers, recorders, a horn and a hoover provide an invigorating accompaniment to melodic singing, explosive spluttering and bizarre
ejaculations. Gablé have been gracing the stages of The Great Escape festival in Brighton and The Big Chill Festival, Herefordshire.
"Even though there are so many sounds attacking you from different places and influences, this undeniably experimental French band has found a way to make it all mould together so that it ultimately doesn’t sound experimental or French. And that’s so cool!" (Undress me Robot)
"Expect some belly laughter and scruffy off-the-wall Franco-pop – plus a man playing an acoustic guitar with an electric drill" (The Independent) http://www.myspace.com/gableacute
Support comes from A Press of Suspects
From rom-com ambient synth mumbling to harsh cock rock about mental breakdowns. Misguided enthusiasm overcoming complete & utter indifference. Like beetroot in chocolate cake, it shouldn't work but it kinda does.
Plus lovable twee hip hop from Kino's very own Vanilla Muffins.
