Hailing from the suburbs of Tokyo, ferocious Japanese quartet Taffy return to the UK this October for 7 gigs, culminating in a performance at Cardiff's Swn Festival on the 18th.
With their intoxicating compilation album 'Plus +++' out now on Club AC30 Records, and a recent UK tour with The Wedding Present under their belts, Taffy are establishing themselves as a firm favourite on the UK scene.
This catchy compilation packs a speedy forty minutes with nostalgic indie, but it's Taffy's infectious combination of punk, grunge and shoegaze that makes them stand out from the crowd.
Their energetic performances have included Madame JoJo's 'White Heat' and Shepherd's Bush Empire along with Play Time festival in Mongolia and regular sell-out gigs in Tokyo, grabbing a legion of fans along the way.
Catch Taffy live in the UK this October:
10th London, Birthdays
11th Halifax, Puzzle Inn
13th London, Brixton Windmill
15th Chester, The Compass
16th Milton Keynes, The Stables

'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
