We’re delighted to be working with Schwervon! – plus Secret Admirer and DJ Need-A-Stack (aka Bob Nastanovich)!

Schwervon! are a two-piece American rock band. Nan plays drums. Matt plays guitar. They both sing. Their band name is a warped variation of an urban slang, meaning: ‘To do something well in one’s own way or in a unique manner, usually involving members of the opposite sex.’ Their music is an expression of imperfect love through jagged rock minimalism.

Schwervon! have released six albums and four seven-inches. Their latest recording is a seven-inch out on Brokers Tip Records (a label run by Bob Nastanovich of Pavement, Silver Jews) It was recorded in Memphis, Tennessee with Doug Easley (Cat Power, Sonic Youth, Grifters).

Schwervon! have toured the world and shared stages with The Vaselines, Guided by Voices, Belle and Sebastian, The Wedding Present, Kimya Dawson, Speedy Ortiz, R. Ring (Kelley Deal), Jeffrey Lewis, Wussy and many other luminaries.

‘Schwervon’s music is so original, inspiring, and full of dark humour. I just love it’ – Frances McKee, The Vaselines

‘I’m not sure how just two people manage to make such a big sound’ – David Gedge, The Wedding Present/Cinerama

Local support comes from Secret Admirer, the solo project from Nick Ainsworth of Former Bullies and Dinner Party fame. In 2016 he released a 20-song self-titled tape via Belfast’s CF Records.

Plus DJ Need-A-Stack.
