John Peel Centre
21st June is Suffolk Day, an annual celebration of all things Suffolk, with a variety of events being held across the county to show off everything Suffolk has to offer. Organisations in Stowmarket are joining in these celebrations, including the John Peel Centre for Creative Arts which is putting on a gig featuring three of Suffolk’s finest young bands: Tundra, KULK, and Naked French.
Surf punk band Tundra originate from Sudbury, burst on to the bustling Bury St Edmunds scene in 2016, and first played at the John Peel Centre as support for American duo Sharkmuffin in May 2017. They won BurySound that same year, beating over 20 other worthy local bands to the title. The band consists of Elliott on drums and vocals, Elliot on bass and vocals, and Caitilin on guitar and vocals. They have also already supported Marmozets, Milk Teeth, and Desperate Journalist, and played at a host of festivals including The Cambridge Strawberry Fair, SwanFest and BNatural alongside Superglu and Dingus Khan. Tundra released their Life’s A Beach EP in April 2018, which The Music Blog 42 described as “a defining moment in Tundra’s already memorable history”, and they are currently writing more songs to be released in 2019. Their last single, ‘Navy Red’ has been getting quite a bit of radio play, including by Steve Lamacq on 6 Music, John Kennedy on Radio X b, and widespread radio play in the US.
