Bamboo Diner in the Rain out on Moshi Moshi

The Wave Pictures reveal the new video for their current single, “Bamboo Diner in the Rain“, taken from their new album of the same name.

The video is The Wave Pictures’ second collaboration with talented London filmmaker, Ed Prosser.

The band says of the video, “Ed’s surreal vision of the song seems to encompass both David Lynch’s Lost Highway and Sylvester Stallone’s arm-wrestling epic Over The Top. Camp and strange in equal measure. The song was inspired by Dire Straits’ second album Communique and by the prose style of Mickey Spillane.” Watch it below…

Following on from their Billy Childish collaboration Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon and acoustic record A Season in Hull, London based trio The Wave Pictures – Jonny Helm (drums), Dave Tattersall (guitar & vocals) and Franic Rozycki (bass) – returned in 2016 with Bamboo Diner in The Rain on Moshi Moshi, which sees the band battling against the robot music apocalypse. It’s a bluesy, boozy love letter to the guitar, filled with American Primitive instrumentals, John Lee Hooker chugs and Link Wray style minor-key surf music. As songwriter and guitarist Dave Tattersall explains; “This album is set in the Bamboo Diner of my dreams, with rain beating on the windows and a jukebox stocked with blues.”
