Over the past six months we have cemented our reputation as a hard working rock band who are heading for the top.
First off we launched our debut EP ‘Latvia’, recorded by Fudge at Cardiff’s SoundSpace studios, at a party on 12.12.12. An auspicious date which Cardiff Council have yet to confirm will hereafter be known as ‘Local Sports Team Day’.
We’ve played with bands such as The History of Apple Pie, Easter, Threatmantics, Gentle Good, Them Squirrels, Spencer McGarry, Fjords, Rough Music, The Milk Race, Falling Stacks, She Ripped, Nanook Of The North, Them Lovely Boys and Gindrinker all of whom have doubtless secretly vowed to work harder as a result.
News of our hard working rock has spread as far and wide, leading to demands for us to take our zesty, punctual live show to Newport and Aberdare. People across South Wales would now not dare to question where we are headed (i.e. the top).
We also traded our guitars for synthesisers at a tribute concert for hard working german electro godfathers Kraftwerk, proving that we are able to adapt to new challenges, show initiative, and be resourceful.
Also, Simon Raymonde played our song ‘Lady Gojira’ on his radio programme and said he ‘loved it’ and in this he’s definitely right because he was in the Cocteau Twins.
Finally, new research has proved that we are definitely a hard working rock band and also definitely heading for the top.
Now we are pleased to announce that Local Sports Team have been formally invited by the people of Latvia to perform in their country. This forms phase two of our long term strategic plan to connect the cosmic ley lines which channel music all around the world.
By entitling our debut EP “Latvia” we recognised the intense harmonic connection which exists between Latvia and Wales. The title caught the eye of an intrigued Latvian music blogger who promptly arranged the cultural exchange.
On Saturday 27th April, Local Sports Team will headline a show at Riga’s legendary night spot ‘Nabaklab’ alongside hard working Latvian rock bands Audience Killers and Neon Saturdays.
At the time of the performance, fans of Local Sports Team are invited to stand in Womanby Street, Cardiff and hum their favourite LST songs in order to cement the cosmic harmonic connection.
This will definitely work.
In this way, we are confident our music will help foster a spirit of friendship and peace between the people of Latvia and the people of Wales which will last for generations - barring diplomatic incidents.
