Back to the oldschool here from a band with extreme promise and an imposing lead vocalist. ‘Fake Turins‘ are bringing back the pure punk funky stuff, reminiscent of one of my favorite bands, Talking Heads. I’ve really been listening hard to the likes of ‘The Cure‘ and ‘Echo & the bunnymen‘ recently and I’m delighted that these lads are making catchy old timer stuff too. There is only so much electro production one can endure, it’s refreshing to see a high octane enthusiastic collective letting rip with their instruments. These lot are only just setting out in their journey now and have the raw matierials in place. It will be interesting to see how they develop. ‘Afterwards‘ is a brilliantly vibrant opener.
I will certainly be all over a gig if they are in London midweek soon – on the watchlist now.
Good luck if you go to see them. I like the Swedish band Fake from the 80s even though I’m from the rock generation of the 70s.
