Ten years ago, Toronto band Tangiers recorded and released their debut record “Hot New Spirits”. These life long friends recorded this document  live off the floor to tape,  thus beginning a whirlwind of chaotic live shows, critical acclaim and heavy strange wildness.  Tangiers was built with equal measure muscular intensity and lithe weirdo damaged poetry.

Blending core rock and roll, manic energy, and an outsider art soul, Tangiers predated a Toronto band explosion to come. Their unhinged energy and “locals only” city kid aesthetic came along with a rancid garbage strike and a sweltering heat wave. International recognition suggested a star on the precipice of birth, instead implosion.

It was over for this original line up in under a year.
10 years later Tangiers are reforming for a show, because playing feels good.

 
“Hot New Spirits is the lost gem of that time—an anxious, nervy, joyous announcement to the world. Other bands would come to define the scene and the decade, but this is what it sounded like before we knew where we were going – Top 10 Canadian albums of the decade” ~ MACLEANS

“Americas, here is your garage-rock underdog. 8.2” – PITCHFORK

BISHOP MOROCCO ‘Stay Lit Remix’ (Video) FADER_ XLR8R_


BISHOP MOROCCO remix HOLY FUCK’s Stay Lit – “given it the Sonny Crockett-on-his-way-to-a-drug-bust treatment.” – FADER

“one of those rare bands whose songs we can listen to over and over again” – NYLON

“effectively brings the song closer to a Factory Records-esque post-punk sound” – XLR8R

BISHOP MOROCCO Remix ‘Stay Lit’


Download BISHOP MOROCCO‘s Remix of HOLY FUCK‘s Stay Lit from 2010’s LATIN.

“this remix of HOLY FUCK’s Latin cut Stay Lit – speaks to our heart and soul. Stripping down the bulk the live electronics and distorted crunch, BISHOP MOROCCO effectively brings the song closer to a Factory Records-esque post-punk sound.” – XLR8R
