Dictionary Pudding Present : The Wave Pictures - Jonny Helm (drums), Dave Tattersall (guitar & vocals) and Franic Rozycki (bass) - return with their new album 'Bamboo Diner in The Rain' due out in November 2016. Following on from 2015's Billy Childish collaboration 'Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon' and their recent acoustic record 'A Season in Hull', 'Bamboo Diner in the Rain' sees The Wave Pictures battling against the robot music apocalypse. The album is a bluesy, boozy love letter to the guitar, filled with American Primitive instrumentals, John Lee Hooker chugs and Link Wray style minor-key surf music.

Franic and David grew up in a village called Wymeswold where they started playing music together with Hugh J. Noble on drums. The band was called Blind Summit. When Hugh decided he didn't want to play drums he went to Exeter to study Philosophy instead. The band changed it's name to The Wave Pictures and Hugh was replaced by several drummers until Jonny "Huddersfield" Helm became the permanent replacement.

Not only did I appreciate his take-no-prisoners musical stylings but also the imaginative lyrical ideas I found mighty refreshing. This is a man who clearly harbours no ambition to be seen hobnobbing with Dido at the Met Bar and has opted instead to plough a righteous but lonely furrow. -Nick Lowe
