2:54 – It Came From The Desert, Kinda

The delivery guys never paid attention to the the ‘bell not working sticker’ on the door, so the girls were forced to take matters into their own hands.

You wouldn’t automatically assume 2:54’s favouritest thing ever was stoner rock on first listen to their blog-stirring ‘Creeping'(click here to download). Old Mazzy Star and Anita O’Day seemed more obvious touchstones.

But within seconds my first conversation with sisters Colette and Hannah Thurlow turned to John Garcia’s one-man ‘Kyuss Reunion’ show in Camden in a few weeks. They both had tickets. It seems the sibling duo were weened on scorched desert sounds, and the kindling dischord that nips at their growing set-list on closer inspection reveals tell-tale signs.

They’ve been working on bits that sound like Earth, or so Colette’s flat mate noted when she overheard their practice session through a wall the other day. Their name itself is a reference to the exact track time when it ‘kicks in’ on their joint fave Melvins’ song.

All this makes the sisters appear even cooler and hotter than you thought a minute ago, right? Which was already pretty hot and pretty cool.

Here’s another corker: 2:54 – ‘On A Wire’
