Beachwood Sparks : London EC1 The Spitz
Alt.Country's a funny old beast
And tonight this LA quartet ride waves of sun-dappled choral harmonies and jingle-jangle guitars plundered directly from The Beach Boys, transforming tonight's sold-out East London show into a countrified acid-pop carnival. 'Sun Surrounds Me' and 'You Take the Gold' begin life earthbound in a rundown Tennessee shack before detonating their AM radio hooks with Spiritualized-style noise-fests and blasting off in a space-country rocketship powered by scratchy copies of The Byrds' 'Sweetheart Of The Rodeo' and Sonic Youth.
Sweetly punished by these cosmic Americans, the audience shouts out for encores and is treated to a saddle-sore cover of Sade's jazz-pop staple 'By Your Side', transforming it from yuppie pap into the last record in a dusty juke box by the Joshua Tree. It's all the proof we need: Beachwood Sparks are saving country music for all of us.
