I love it when this happens. Seriously.
Three years into blogging, I get quite a few letters/emails/whatever from bands wanting a listen. And I do try and get through it all, and I’m touched when people want me to feature their band. Every so often I pick something I’m even more pleased when people actually leave feedback to say they like it. It happened a few weeks ago when I wrote about the Gothenburg Address.
And now I’m hoping the same will happen with Peter Parker.
The four-piece Glasgow band are set to release their debut single ‘Swallow the Rockets’ on July 6. And I’ve been sent a CD-R but this is a track so good, I’m going to place an advance order. Fronted by Roz Davies (vocals, guitar, keys) and Jane McKeown (vocals, bass), the sister of JOhn from the 1990s, the band are complimented by Tori on drums and Jeremy on vocals and sax. They deliver a great line in glam-stompers that recalls the aforementioned 1990s, the late-lamented The Royal We and I sense a bit of common fround with Isa and the Filthy Tongues. Swallow the Rockets is addictive, and I don’t want to be cured. These guys deserve to do well. Watch them clean up over the next few months.
‘Swallow the Rockets’ will be released on Lucky Number Nine Records/Say Dirty records on July 6.
