WHITEST BOYS ON THE BEACH is a beautifully sordid portrait of a band over a decade, spanning from their chaotic, early existence to the present day.

Drawing together materials from the band’s archives, including photographs, posters, flyers, tour diary extracts and memoir contributions from lead singer Lias Saoudi, WHITEEST BOYS ON THE BEACH reflects key moments in the band’s history, such as Thatcher’s Death Party at the Queen’s Head in Brixton (where they squatted, and ended up on the front page of national newspapers waving a “The Witch is Dead” banner) to the experiences of the Saoudi brothers growing up mixed race in Unionist Northern Ireland during the Troubles, and the tragic death of trailblazing guitarist Dale Barclay in 2018.

These compelling tales provide insights into bitterness, destruction and rage against mediocrity that has propelled them into being one of most significant bands of their generation. This is not a biography, or a quest for truth – but a provocative account of the murky waters that surround them.
