<< musical agitators of a runaway circus >>
Johnny Kowalski and the Sexy Weirdos first began to make their presence felt on the Birmingham scene in early 2010, honing their special blend of music in backstreet boozers around the midlands. The following year they made two music videos to accompany early recordings and played shows in some strange and wonderful locations including a twenty eighth floor penthouse apartment and an abandoned factory building with no electricity.
Since then there has been an unprecedented rise in Sexy Weirdo activity; a reputation for euphoric live performances and sell out shows at Hare and Hounds and The End in Birmingham have helped the band earn glowing reviews in local fanzines. The Sexy Weirdos have charmed audiences into dancing frenzies at festivals and venues around the country including Nozstock, Boomtown and Hootananny. With the release of self produced debut album Victory for the Monsters in the autumn of 2012 the band went on a European tour playing shows in Germany, Czech Republic, France and Belgium. On their return home they were invited to do a live acoustic session by their local BBC Introducing show, and this year have been invited to perform on the BBC Introducing stage at Wychwood Festival 2013.
With BBC6 Music airplay and a european tour already under their belts for 2013, and with sets confirmed at Wychwood, Tramlines, Nozstock and Boomtown festivals, the band is gathering momentum and their insatiable appetite to whip crowds of people into heaving, sweaty masses of merriment means there is only one way to find out what could happen next…
