The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer

Part of River Town 2018

Armed with harmonicas, foot percussion, and a road-worn Telecaster, Canadian duo The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer combine ‘decades-deep blues’ (What’s up Yukon) with ‘Talking Heads-like funk breakdowns.’ (NOW Magazine). Citing influences as varied as Willie Dixon, White Stripes, and Danger Mouse, Shawn ‘The Harpoonist’ Hall and Matthew ‘The Axe Murderer’ Rogers deliver “a raw, polished-gritty sound that will bounce around your head for hours” (Spill).

Plus support from Joe Strouzer.

This is a standing show. Taking place The Louisiana, Wapping Road, Bathurst Terrace, Bristol, BS1 6UA
