Following the release of debut album ‘Dream Machine’ (Weiner Records) a 10 track Slacker-Punk polemic, Guido Giorgi a.k.a Beat Degeneration has shared brand new tour dates, with more to be announced.
Over the coming months the band will cross Europe toward a two special UK dates, one at Peckhams Pempeople and the latter at The Old Queens Head.
These live dates also follow the release of the new video for ‘Nations’, the first track to appear on ‘Dream Machine’ and the most summative of Guido’s view of the status quo, proclaiming his disdain for the state of the world. But the track is more than just a politically charged Power Pop anthem for likeminded individuals, it promotes everything that we need to see us through these tumultuous times: friendship and togetherness.
Having previously appeared as a member of Jennfier Gentle (SubPop Records), Guido wears his heart on his sleeve and combines all things punk, indie and pure outlandishness into his own unique brand of Noise Pop for the youthful and the disaffected.
The video for ‘Nations’ plays on what Beat Degeneration represent, showcasing itself as a crisp summer show-reel of good times and goofing around. From the general store to dried-up swimming pools, the band find themselves against the grainy backdrop of sunny days and balmy evenings. It only makes it more poignant that amongst all the fun the video promotes, Guido can pose the question: Why does everybody hate this world?
Beat Degeneration are unapologetic in virtually everything they do and much like the work of Ty Segall & Black Lips they are able to seamlessly transform punk-infused noise pop into unforgettable and truly exhilarating music.
