Warmduscher are a London-based post-punk band formed in 2014 and currently signed to The Leaf Label.

Background[edit]

"The offspring of a match made in hell between Fat White Family and Paranoid London", Warmduscher are Clams Baker Jr (Craig Louis Higgins Jr), Lightnin’ Jack Everett (Jack Everett), The Saulcano (Saul Adamczewski), Mr. Salt Fingers Lovecraft (Ben Romans-Hopcraft) and The Witherer aka Little Whiskers (Quinn Whalley). Formed on New Year's Eve 2014 as an impromptu band to play at a house party, the initial line up featured Higgins on vocals and Adamczewski on bass alongside Lias Kaci Saoudi and Adam J Harmer of Fat White Family on guitar and drums respectively. The group then continued as a quintet, with Everett, Romans-Hopcraft and Whalley replacing Harmer and Saoudi.[1][2] Clash (magazine) called the group "the sleaziest, most debauched, and downright addictive experiences in London's guitar underground right now".[3]

The band's first album, Khaki Tears, was released on 11 May 2015 on Trashmouth Records.[4] Described as "the finest of filth" and "fractured rock and roll at its best" by Louder Than War, the band explain the album's title as "the time it takes for you to pluck up the courage for something" and "the ability to cry while eating your cake no matter what it's made of".[5][2]

The album was followed by the single Big Wilma/Neon Tongues, produced by Dan Carey and released on The Leaf Label on 12 January 2018. Described as a "mix of in-your-face punk and sinister electronica", the single was made available on a limited edition run of 300 7" singles.[6][7][8]

Warmduscher's second album, Whale City, was released on The Leaf Label on 1 June 2018 and has been described by the band as "a playground for the people that have stepped above and beyond their comfort zone".[9] Too Many Blogs called the album "dangerously debauched, infested with twisted riffs and cleverly assembled by Dan Carey’s production".[10] "Standing On The Corner', the second single from Whale City, was released on 6 April 2018 and called a "knock out blow" by Clash Magazine.[11][12] This was followed by third single "1000 Whispers" on 16 May 2018.[13]
