London Bloomsbury Lanes (Punk N Bowl 3)
December 20th 2009
This melodic indie punk trio from Norwich are a new band that are already causing quite a lot of excitement with their energetic and fun live shows and infectious sing-alongs. It's no wonder they were one of the highlights of Punk N Bowl, especially since it was the first time I'd seen them. Influenced by Huey Lewis And The News, smashing facial hair and a hatred of the drudgery of 9 to 5 jobs (a recurring theme in their songs), they're a band whose upbeat tunes and dual vocals are sure to win them plenty of friends this year. If you're a fan of DEVO, Descendents and/or Superchunk then these guys are for you. You can download five songs from here but not the track from this live video. Vocalist/drummer Carl commented on this video:
"This particular song is one we've not yet recorded. We're recording that and another new one at the end of this month, but we're not 100% sure what we're going to be doing with it yet."
