Daisy Chains new video and Camden gig: Walk like the Manics, play like Chic…
Ged Babey previews Daisy Chains new video and previews their Camden gig taking this Saturday 10th October at Dublin Castle
The South Coasts latest pop export, a band who walk and talk like Manics but aim to groove like Chic and Chaka Khan and are called Daisy Chains – a New Band of the Day who I interviewed back in May. They are self releasing a new song, Drug Pop on their own label and have sent us a cheap and cheerful video, which they insist we show you.
As I said before :
A lot of people mocked the Manics in their early days and Daisy Chains will be ridiculed by some but adored by people who want a band of literate, filthy & glamorous dandies who can make them dance away the boredom of our futile existences.
Daisy Chains play at Camden’s Dublin Castle this Saturday ( early 7.30). Expect teenage girls throwing underwear and A&R men throwing cheques at them!
Daisy Chains are on Facebook.
