Hooton Tennis Club are four good friends from Liverpool – Khal, Haz, J. Dean and Uncle Ry – who release their debut single for Heavenly Recordings, Jasper / Standing Knees, on Tuesday February 24th 2015.
Produced by fellow Merseysider Bill Ryder Jones at his mum’s house, the double A-sided release, available on 7″ and digitally, is an effortless slice of languid lo-fi in the classic Teenage Fanclub, Pavement, Guided By Voices tradition, full of unhurried chord changes and heavy-lidded drumming.
The band signed to Heavenly Recordings towards the end of last year following shows at both Liverpool’s Sound City Festival and the Cassette Store Day event in London.
They play a number of UK shows around the release of the single including several supporting label mates H Hawkline.
