THE VOYEURS are one of LTW’s tips. Great band with their tough and angular guitar pop they arrived on the scene with a flurry of excitement and have followed up with something even better.
The band have announced details of new single, UK tour changes and supports for the Horrors European shows.

The Voyeurs (formerly Charlie Boyer & The Voyeurs) have announced details of a new single. Stunners will be released on Monday November 3rd 2014 on Heavenly Recordings.
Featuring the B-side Orgy # 2, the single was produced by Oli Bayston (Boxed In) and recorded at the Flesh & Bone and The Premises studios in east-London.
Released on 7” and download, the track features on their forthcoming 2nd album, Rhubarb Rhubarb, which is released the following week.
If the debut album had a spiritual home in New York City, the new LP has its heart in London. ‘A lot of the album is about characters,’ said Charlie Boyer. ‘There are a lot of domestic themes – sometimes a story about a boy and a girl, with maybe some of the characters moving from song to song. It’s more of an English record – where showtunes and a sense of humour enter the picture, moving on from simple gutter rock.’
The album title comes from an old English theatrical device – the tradition where the phrase ‘rhubarb, rhubarb’ is used to produce background dialogue on stage and on the TV.
‘There’s a lot of noise around in the world today,’ added Charlie. ‘I was thinking of the idea of making noise but not really saying anything. The idea of “rhubarb, rhubarb” is unscripted background conversation in plays and on television. Today people are commenting on things all the time, commenting in new ways – Twitter and things. But a lot of it’s just more background, another kind of “rhubarb, rhubarb”…’
Having recently played alongside Fat White Family on a short UK tour, the band return in November to play their own headline gigs and a run of European shows with the Horrors.
Their own previously announced November shows in Bedford, Southampton, Bristol, Cardiff & Leamington Spa have been postponed and will be re-scheduled for February 2015.
