From Sunderland and Newcastle, Cazimi are a trio of post-punk misfits that play in-between music. They have been described as “Not so much the illegitimate sons, but the genetically engineered progeny of luminaries such as Magazine, The Bunnymen, The Stranglers, Hawkwind, Killing Joke, John Barry and Erik Satie”. Bullshit? Maybe.
Cazimi have been played on Tom Robinson’s Mixtape and his Saturday show as well as local radio plays by Nicky Roberts at BBC Newcastle. The band released their debut album 'Late in the Day' in 2020 and 'Signals' EP in 2022, both of which are available on CD as well as through AWAL via Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, TIDAL etc.
Stepping down from the band is Kevin Melling but his replacement is waiting in the wings. Kev will play his last gig on 20th October at The Peacock in Sunderland where Cazimi and Roxy Girls support the mighty Punishment of Luxury.
The band have plans to create a video for the forthcoming single Foul Play. This is likely to be accompanied by another EP late 2023 or early 2024.
