Netherlands band AlascA head for UK

AlascA play the following UK dates in Feb:

Feb 22 : The Slaughtered Lamb, London, EC1V - Tickets (£5) available HERE:

Feb 23 : The United Brethren, New Writtle St, Chelmsford

AlascA might well be one of the Netherlands’ best kept secrets. Think of an Amsterdam-based Big Star or Arthur Lee’s Love hidden, unknown like some treasure to be discovered and cherished ten to twenty years from now. But why wait that long? With its third album “Plea for Peace” the band delivers 12 instant playlist classics that combine 60’s pop elements with a straightforward 90’s attitude in a highly topical approach.

AlascA’s songwriter and frontman Frank Bond has also played many solo shows, among other things, as a support for Sinéad O’ Connor at the Sage, Gateshead, as a support act for The Young Folk and Folk Road Show on tours in the Netherlands and more recently Frank toured in Portugal.

Dutch reviews :

AlascA takes you on a trip through pop's history with the psychedelic echoes of the sixties as their compass.Melancholy guitar melodies and Frank Bond's whispering voice - AlascA does not need much more to create magical moments. Oor

Of their three records so far this one is lyrically the most edgy. Plea for Peace is a brave record. Nieuw Waterland


Bob Harris (BBC 2) “Brilliant!”

Steve Bennett (Acoustic Magazine) "Imagine discovering a lost Arthur Lee classic from 1967. This comes close to that.”

Chris Hawkins (BBC Radio 6) "Joyous positive nu-folk”

De Volkskrant There should no longer be any doubt whatsoever. AlascA makes albums of great significance"

Pure Magic!” Jan Akkerman (Focus)
