BOY AZOOGA

700 Website Boy Azooga

Boy Azooga, the psych-flecked musical vehicle for Cardiff’s Davey Newington multifarious musical mission.

A prodigous musical talent, Davey Newington is a young man with much musical heritage. One of his granddads was a jazzer who played drums for the Royal Marines. Davey’s dad (violin) and his mum (clarinet) both played, and met, in the BBC National Orchestra Of Wales. Davey himself took up drums at the age of six and also enjoyed orchestral engagement, playing in various Welsh Orchestra’s and Jazz bands as a teenager.

Inspired by his art teacher at school who sent him off to town to buy Can’s Ege Bamyasi, taking inspiration from the likes of Sly & The Family Stone, Caribou, Black Sabbath, Outkast, Van McCoy, Ty Segall and The Beastie Boys and nabbing their name from the 1994 film The Little Rascals, Davey recruited friends Daf Davies, Dylan Morgan and Sam Barnes to form the Boy Azooga live quartet, an ensemble that swings smoothly from filmic instrumentals to a churning, rave-tinged rock that hints at both Can and their progeny in Happy Mondays.
