DRINKS live review at The Lexington Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley’s collaboration DRINKS played at The Lexington in London on 10 September to a sold-out crowd eager to see how the improvised sound of their recently released debut album, Hermits On Holiday, would transform to the live arena.

Sporting a spangly, paisley top, but with an understated presence, Tim Presley is beloved by this crowd. A highly respected figure in the psychedelic lo-fi scene, his band (including Cate Le Bon on guitar...Read More
