Formed in 2005s, The Vogues share a passion for booze, shoes, fags and live performance; their concerts shimmer with an electric atmosphere and a front-man redolent of a young Mick Jagger.
The sound of The Vogues resonates with influences including the Beatles, The Stones, Kinks, Stone Roses, Blur, Oasis, Suede, The Strokes and the Libertines.
Yet their songs and image are far from retrospective; mixing soul bass lines, 6O’s garage riffs and a pinch of baggy and glam-rock attitude with contemporary elements.
The lyrics broach topics including suburban perversions and autobiographical adventures of wild nights.
Following the great rock’n’’roll tradition, The Vogues line up consists of two electric guitars, bass and drums, lead and backing vocals with occasional sleazy harmonica.
The band count Carl Barat (Dirty Pretty Things / former Libertines) among their fans and thanks to his endorsement was able to support Dirty Pretty Things at the Botanique in March 2006.
Gigs in 2006 included Paris, Brussels, Liege and Amsterdam. In 2007 The Vogues played in London at The Dublin Castle..
