NYPC - 'NYPC'

NYPC - 'NYPC'

New Young Pony Club have gone minimal, and to mark the occasion they now go by the name of NYPC. Anything extraneous, even a title, is gone for album three. Members are cut back to two – vocalist Tahita Bulmer and multi-instrumentalist Andy...

Album Review: New Young Pony Club - 'The Optimist' (Pias)

New Young Pony Club - 'The Optimist' (Pias)

When New Young Pony Club first released ‘Ice Cream’ on Tirk Records in 2005, it felt like they were destined to become Favourite New Band to a lot of people. The 1,000 copies of the seven-inch slice of disco-punk heaven disappeared from...

Live review: New Young Pony Club/Chew...

If ever a band were set up to make a shruggingly insignificant second album and promptly dollop into the pop cesspit to fester into new rave nothingness, it was New Young Pony Club . An OK-ish 2007 debut, ‘Fantastic Playroom’ , buoyed by...

If there were fears thecocknbullkid wouldn’t be able to translate her demos to the stage they’re dashed tonight. All the intricate circuitry that made her MySpace tunes so brilliantly odd come together via her new three-piece band. On tracks...

Possibly reluctant to re-release ‘Ice Cream’ for the 43rd time, NYPC scanned their back catalogue and discovered they’ve actually got more than one good song. ‘Get Lucky’ is one of them. This glorious slice of futuro-pop prances like an...

It’s the first time these words have ever been used together in the history of album reviewing, but it does have to be said and I think now is the time… thank God for Fischerspooner. A pair of tarted up New York art slags with more sequinned...

It might be a year old now, but a generation of new ravers haven’t come up with anything to match this. ‘Ice Cream’ is the sort of delicious disco-punk smash that every band in Britain talks about making but never does. Filthy bass,...

There’s a whiff of posey insincerity about NYPC: Tahita’s Hoxton half-haircut, the bored sex-chat vocals, the fact that they are essentially the Steps of new rave… but forget all that, for NYPC have burst out of their snooty monotune to make...

“Let me give you what you’d like/I can make your mouth run dry” robo-smooches Tahita Bulmer like a space-age pleasure-droid licking on a scoop of Funky Spunky Ben & Jerry’s. “Drink me like a liqueur/Come and dip your dipper/Show me what...
