Where were you in 1977, Amy Taylor? The foul-mouthed singer of Amyl & The Sniffers wasn’t even born! As a matter of fact she was still a long way off (her birth certificate says…1996). Thinking about it, at that time her parents were kids who didn’t even listen to punk rock, they listened to AC/DC and Fleetwood Mac. Even so, when you’re hit with the ten angry eruptions of Big Attraction & Giddy Up you could imagine that Amy has shared rehearsal rooms, stages and pyjama parties with Poly Styrene, Ari Up and Ana da Silva. That’s how pure her Brit-punk repertoire sounds. Or better said, Aussie-punk, as they’re from Australia and pray to The Saints, The New Christs and The Birthday Party.
The band performed on the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show yesterday morning (6th July) to celebrate the release of their second album. While doing so, they recorded a stripped back cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’.
La banda d’indie-folk creada l’any 2009 i formada per Jonathan Russel i Josiah Johnson (veus y guitarres), Charity Rose (violí, banjo i veu), Chris Zasche (baix), Kenny Hensley (piano) i Tyler Williams (percussió) presenta el seu tercer treball, “Signs Of Light” (Warner, 16). L‘álbum entrà directament en el nº2 de vendes de Billboard als EU.A. La banda ha canviat de segell i ha deixat enrere aquell folk fosc per un de més lluminós que els apropa al so de Fleetwood Mac. Aquesta nit seran a la sala Razzmatazz.
