new noise 01 - grammatics

Hey, hope you're well.
Inspired by my love of music and general summer-being-spent-entirely-at-gigs I introduce you to a new feature at The London Lipgloss called New Noise which deviates away from beauty but still reflects a huge part of me and the music I love, which I can't wait to share with you. (New Noise is taken from a song by Refused, incase you're wondering. teehee)

Meet Grammatics.

Grammatics are a four piece from Leeds formed in 2006. I've chosen to feature Grammatics because unfortunately they are to split at the end of August, sad face! I will honestly say that shamelessly i've only really got into their music for the last few months, and while I find this both exciting and exhilarating i'm also devastated that a band I enjoy are now on their way out. Nevertheless they're still worth a listen and their music is fantastic. As of today they embark on their final tour, and I highly recommend catching them while you can. The dates are as follows:

Aug 12 The Rainbow in Birmingham
Aug 13 – The Lexington in London (i'll be at this show!)
Aug 14 – Start The Bus in Bristol
Aug 15 – The Deaf Institute in Manchester
Aug 16 – The Captains Rest in Glasgow
Aug 17 – Fibbers in Yor
Aug 19 –Walkabout Bar in Barnsley
Aug 20–Brudenell Social Club in Leeds

What do you think of Grammatics? Have you previously never heard their stuff before or have you been a fan for ages? What do you think about me encorporating music posts into a beauty blog, cheekily? Please do drop by and let me know your thoughts good and bad, totally makes my day!
Much love, Zozo xxxx


  1. I love these types of posts :) Always good to find new music, even if they are splitting up xx

  2. I saw them a few years ago, they were supporting The Futureheads. I liked the name of the band more than their music, I'm afraid. :)

  3. You totally used an old promo pic AND got both the drummer and cellist's names wrong, but I'll forgive you cos you're doing 'a good thing' and I love Grammatics. Kiss x
