Radio Luxembourg - Where Is Dennis?
Radio Luxembourg hail from that most satisfying to say but hard to type of all Welsh places, Aberystwyth. This is the first thing i've heard from them, and my first brain-link-comparison would be The Spinto Band (I then of course think 'where have they disappeared to?', but thats beside the point), as in 'Where Is Dennis' they pump out a similar mixture of childlike excitement and imaginative songwriting. Another good comparison, given the fact that this is produced by Euros Childs, is indeed Childs' much missed Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, and indeed the two songs from RL i've heard would probably fit quite nicely into the Gorky's beautifully springy Barafundle album. There's a sort of British summer garden Syd Barrett/Lucy In The Sky/Fried-era Julian Cope style psyche tinge to things that works quite nicely, all piano twinkling, penny whistles and the like. Finally, if you were a fan of the Coral (before they somehow became a more boring version of The Zutons, as impossible as that sounds), I also thought of their early work for a second or two. You can get more info, tour dates, etc, at the bands myspace.
