DEBUT LP EFFORT BY NEWCASTLE'S GOOCH PALMS. Comes with download code!
"Debut long player after two EPs from this Newcastle duo.
Frontman/guitarist Leroy Macqueen is the kooky one, apparently the type
of guy who likes to get naked and wild during shows, while stand-up
drummer Kat Friend plays the straight man and also contributes vocals
along with the beats. Macqueen's vox contain the zaniness of Fred
Schneider, a bit of Lux Interior's punkabilly yelp and he can do the
white-boy soul croon too. Kat's vocals are solid female punkola, not
screechy or wild but having more of a Joan Jett directness. Songwise,
they do a lot of styles - early Sixities-sounding ballads ("You"),
indie-garage ("We Get By", what could be the hit off this one),
garage-punk stomp ("False Identity"), Crampsy muck gone pop ("A Sun, A
Moon"), Ramones radio-punk ("Hungry") and more all driven by primitive
drumming and with Macqueen's vocals really being the attention grabber.
Reminds me of a King Khan & BBQ set-up, with traces of doo wop and
Fifties sockhop moves as well, making sure the live show is a party.
Your liking of this will hinge largely on your appreciation of this
guy's singing. Should appeal to Burger Records fans, Nobunny devotees
and other pop-minded sorts who like it a little bit weird, but in a
friendly way." - TERMINAL BOREDOM (RK)
