After plugging away for years in their hometown of Tampa, Florida – initially as a hardcore punk band playing shows in shipping containers – Merchandise released an album called 'Children of Desire' and arrived with a bang on music blogs around the world. Their romantic noise-rock, tempered and layered with synths, is rather brilliant – and all that practice on the Tampa punk scene has shaped them into a fierce live act. This show in support of their new 'After the End' album – their first for legendary British label 4AD – should be a good 'un.
