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.
