The Immediates formed in 1995 out of the gathering of musicians coming from various garage bands (among which Stinky Spider). The Immediates have reached their present state after having settled down in Nantes in 1998 and seen the conspicuous arrival of two new recruits, François and Xavier (ex-Looneys), a buoyant organist and jumpy performer on stage.
The sound of the band was then deeply modified with the organ flying high over the beats.
After having changed their drummer twice, Captain Y (Ultra Milkmaids, the Star and Key of the Indian Ocean) joined in during the summer 2005, and has since then been providing the band with renewed rhythms in the pure 60’s beat fashion.
The Immediates are bold explorers when you listen to their set: they alternate original and cover songs (from the Remains, the Zombies to the Small Faces…), they display freak beats, elegant ties, vocal harmonies, Vespa scooters and British beats all at once in one tight bundle!
