Two kings of the indie dancefloor unite for a warm, timeless take on 20th century pop and rock
Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disas : London Camden Barfly
Lock up your mothers
Make no mistake, TEMBD are by far the best new band in Britain today. Touting the frankly incredible ten-tracks-in-25-minutes Debut Album Of The Year in ‘Horse Of The Dog’, they're digging up the raw roots of dark-soul riot rock and smearing the dirt across their cheeks as warpaint. The likes of ‘Celebrate Your Mother’ and new track ‘Psychosis Safari’ (gunning to be the first song to get the line "My mind’s in a furry cup" on TOTP) have awoken MTV and the nation to the brittle and barbaric tunefulness roaring at the core of these Mohican’d maniacs.
From the tribal deathabilly barrage of ‘Chicken’ to Guy McKnight’s dying orc howls on ‘Fish Fingers’, TEMBD are simply an intoxicating planet of sound – a raw and untamed yowl of primal rock bloodlust. Lock up your mothers.
