V/A "Shake" CD Biff! Bang! Pow! rds

Categories: Specialty:Music - Added on September 22, 2012 - # 130618

Of the seventeen on Shake! the opener Get It Together by The Solarflares grabs you by the nuts with its gritty Medway sound, then before you've had a chance to get your breath back you're dragged along at hectic pace through an Online Pharmacy by Tom Hingley & the Lovers.

Taken by The Points has a nice 90s Manchester feel to it, and reminds me of some of the great unsigned bands I've seen in pubs around the country. Yeh-Yeh's Don't Try has the real Revival feel that they're well known for, and sets you up perfectly for the brilliant Peace of Mind by Small World, up there with The Solarflares for best track of the album. I played this at a recent scooter do and it got more attention than any other tune in the entire set.

The Goldenhour combine a Mod sound with their familiar West Coast style smoothness for These Things (which I'm bound to like because I like them and they're bloody nice blokes). Francis by The Embrooks is a total mid/late 60s throwback full of influences from The Kinks, Quo, Floyd, The Who and probably even The Moody Blues. It's hard to put a finger on it, but it's a good, foot-stomping rocker.

Follow that with the wall of sound that is J60's Other People Say, and you'll be transported to a low-ceiling, sweaty gig with grinding chords making the amps, and your sternum, vibrate.
