FAKIRS BAY (it)
These guys definitely aren’t the ones to be easily pigeonholed by the scene’s stuffy genre conservatives, they just rock it up and shake it up with a lunatic youth revolt trip through the outcast discotheque of Rock’n’Roll, Pubrock, Punk and Powerpop with decent hints of Junkshop Glam.
VIBRATORS, UNDERTONES, COCK SPARRER ? Check ! Chiswick Chartbusters with the 101ers, STUKAS, LITTLE BOB STORY? Naturally! Gimme that Pubrock, Bovver Boogie and some EQUALS along, I´ll sharpen it with some of of Lux & Ivy´s “Big Beat From Badsville” vibes and add up a hammering Jerry Lee Lewis style Piano from the bar around the corner. All that´s left now to get the full picture of PENNYCOCKS brilliance is light up a Lee Brilleaux cigarette, inhale the original “Malpractice” tobacco spirit and heat up THE DAMNED flux-compensator with some New Rose energy.
