Joana and the Wolf first came to my attention when I saw they are on the same bill as Roxy Rawson and King Charles at the Boogaloo next Wednesday. However I am unable to attend with the forthcoming 48 hour tube strike impending from the 9th June through to 11th June. Well this is a band I really want to see live after the songs I heard on Myspace I took a instant liking to.
The bands recent single Natural Born Killer which is backed with Deamon’s Bride is out on Itunes now. The first release Purple Nights which was released in 2006 can still be tracked down on the internet.
Joana who comes from Lithuania kindly took some time out to become the next artist to participate in this series:
