As regular readers know I take particular delight in music which, to be fully enjoyed, needs to be played at full volume through as many speakers as are at disposal, particularly when there is distortion and it lasts less than three minutes – so it is with delight that I introduce Beach Riot. For reasons of my poor admin despite having exchanged numerous emails since early this year – I have managed to not get to them in any semblance of good order – finally – Slackers – which was released on the 12th.

One hundred and seventy one seconds of pounding rock’n’roll that strips away any loose plaster on the walls by a band you just know instinctively you want to go and party with and who I look forward to hearing more of, in short order.

Another review I am late to get to, sorry…

…The sarcasm sears the ears akin to the tingle of Coleman’s English Mustard replacing a layer of butter on one side in a sandwich, whilst eyes stream due to the heat the taste-buds equally dance in delight in their latest track – Let’s Talk About Me (available on bandcamp).

The fuzzy guitar roar nuzzles away in to ever corner of the room like a demented robovac that is on a hefty trip of amphetamines as the axed drum kit sounds as though it is chasing over the stage with a bass that is slung to loosely holding pegs with vocal stretching delayed echo giving Let’s Talk About Me a need for an immediate replay even more loudly.

My apologies that this feature is late, as the introduction was made on the 6th.

With a few pieces behind them, thom simon, offer the listener a broad stretch of ideas, within their material, that dates back for over three years. Sometimes psychedelic, other times funky-reggae and even as is the case in their latest track, which came out earlier this month – Driving Dreams (available on bandcamp) – surfy-garage-dance – always engaging and having been filtered through a gauze the resulting music has a warmth of sound that embraces the listener.

It is of little surprise they are securing a wider touring base and Festival appearances. I look forward to hearing more of thom simon, in short order.

Backhanded Manly Manaroni is everything you could possibly desire from garage-rock in a fuzzy burr of energy that wraps itself up in less than two and a half minutes, leaving the listener feeling better for having taken part in the experience.
