The Good The bad return to London in February to play Ja Ja Ja Music night at The Lexington, and were hand picked from 40 Danish bands by Simon Raymonde from Bella Union Records to be the first Danish act to play the emerging new club night.

Ja Ja Ja is an exciting new monthly club night in London showcasing the best emerging talent from the Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

The night aims to provide a strong independent platform where new ‘export ready’ artists across multiple genres are able to showcase their music to key British music industry professionals, media, tastemakers and punters alike.

Ja Ja Ja aims to draw attention to this hotbed of talent on a monthly basis. The high concentration of industry professionals and international media in London makes it an ideal location.

The central London venue will be The Lexington, with a launch party spread across both floors on November 19th featuring live performances from Kira Kira,  I Was A King and TV Off. The bands for this show were selected from a shortlist by Huw Stephens of BBC Radio 1 Introducing, and more information on each act will follow soon.

Each night will feature specially invited British curators who will program the final line-up. Artist submissions from the various Nordic countries will be reviewed by the respective export offices, who will produce a shortlist based on ‘export readiness’. The guest curator will then select his favourite 3 artists for the night.

Ja Ja Ja is an initiative supported by the Nordic Export Offices (NOMEX) represented by; Export Music Sweden, Music Export Denmark, Music Export Finland, Icelandic Music Export and Music Export Norway.
