Palma Violets


12" LP

Availability: In stock


Quick Overview

180 is the debut album from South London quartet Palma Violets. Produced by Pulp member Steve Mackey, the album sees the four-piece reining in their ramshackle live sound, producing a balanced mix of Libertines-esque indie-rock & roll. The 2012 single "Best of Friends" is also included.


For a long time if you wanted to hear the most exciting new band in Britain, you knocked on a tall black door off the Lambeth Road. An aging British Rail building - part art studio happening, part squat Studio 180 was where south London's Palma Violets were gestating, away from sunlight and the world at large. A thrilling rock'n'roll four piece channeling The Clash, ? and the Mysterians, and the Bad Seeds, from September 2011 they were holed-up here writing songs "their friends could dance to" and occasionally putting on celebratory, ecstatic parties about which word quickly spread.
