The Supernovas / Regent Street Takeover

This week The Supernovas will be hitting London’s bustling west end and performing as part of the week-long Strummerville Regent Street Takeover, in association with Clarks Originals. On 18th February, The North London, mod powered rockers will be unplugging and putting together a more mellow set for the afternoon shoe-gazing crowd.

Playing together since they were 16, The Supernovas (Joei, frontman singer and rhythm guitarist; Columbian lead guitarist Rizo; bass supremo Panashe, and drummer Moses) have long been associated with the charity Strummerville, who last Autumn took them up and down the UK on their very first full UK tour.

The boys’ last single, City Of Smoke, released to ride shotgun with those dates, was a skanking, beat driven tale of life and love in the capital city. To support this release, a narrative video was shot by Sam Bird on the roof and inside the old Flowerpot in north London’s Kentish Town.

As an accompaniment to the 7″ release, the legendary Grammy award winning film maker Don Letts, (the man who introduced The Clash to reggae) heard City Of Smoke, and immediately remixed it, bringing his own joyous west London beats to the party. The superb Dub Cartel versus The Supernovas block party banger is currently available as a free download HERE
