No grass grows where the Spinshots have been.
The Spinshots are a 7-piece neo-exotica band from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. They materialized from the wildest fantasies of visual artist Martin Draax who dreamt of a band that came through a crack in reality from an obscure world, bringing you tunes you’d been craving and a backbeat you never thought could be that back. The Spinshots he founded went from concept to stage monster with sharp fangs.
The Spinshots’ influences are from around the world, past and present. Although their music is authentic and exclusively written for them, their interests are obvious: 30s big band sounds, 40s & 50s jazz and dance music, and most of all, everything from the 60s. Expect a warped mix of spy-fi, surf, soul, beat, Bollywood, klezmer, éthiopiques, garage, freakbeat and funk, like the soundtrack of a golden era in your life you had missed.
Oh, and they look sharp, so you do want them to take you to their planet.
