The band hail from Manchester and their woozy feedback driven, off kilter, garage rock is like a clanking adrenalised version of the early Cramps and the very early Pussy Galore that I once released on my Vinyl Drip label in the eighties. The band are pure garage rock but with some great lo-fi tunes, the songs are pop classics melted with the sort of thrilling feedback that Jesus And Mary Chain once toyed with. The spirit of Bryan Gregory is in the house! There is also a touch of the genius yelping vocals of Sky Saxon from the wonderful Seeds.

Live the band are of course great, this kind of rock n roll is built for causing a riot and the ‘Anyone But You’ single is released in on 27th February 2012 on the fantastically named Italian Beach Babes label.
