Desperate Journalist are two boys and two girls who live in North London. They consist of Jo Bevan (vocals), Simon Drowner (bass), Rob Hardy (guitar) and Caz Hellbent (drums). Lured together by fate and a fierce sense of what makes alternative music actually really bloody alternative they started their journey at the local Negative Creep grunge club night in Finsbury Park on February 23rd 2013 and have barely looked back since.
Both the look, feel and sound of a reassuring recollection and a furious melodic rush right now, “Leave Home” is the latest single from London’s Desperate Journalist, and Jason Weidner’s new video for it is a vintage-tinged mirror into its heart. Last year Fierce Panda Records released their Good Luck EP, and you can find that here. On Wednesday January 13th the band will play a show with Piano Wire and White Giant at Tufnell Park’s Boston Music Rooms, and you can learn more about that event here and buy tickets here.
Desperate Journalist: Leave Home
