MP3: Vinyl Radio - Fancy With A Pistol EP
Yesterday my wonderful postman delivered me the new EP from San Diego's Vinyl Radio. Not only do the band have a rather great name, they've also got a rather nice sound, mixing some propulsive, garagey MC5ish elements with some piano based Rolling Stones-alike tomfoolery. The band describe/categorise themselves no myspace as 'Pub Rock', but i'd say thats a little unfair; they've definitely got some rather retro influences, but there seems to be a lot of potential in their sound, and so Pub Rock (not the kindest term you can give a band, in the UK at least) is a little too modest. The EP, which is out on Red Tangle records, is called Fancy With a Pistol is a five tracker, and i've put up a couple of tracks from it below for you to check out. If you like what you hear, you can get more information on it and on Vinyl Radio (tour dates, etc) at their myspace.
