The US newwave trio Zodiac Panthers revealed a new song recently – Primal Astrology.
On hitting play the listener is immediately drawn to the best of CBGBs on the late ’70s with the carefree low slung guitar and bass combinations pumped along by a busy drumkit with the slurried vocal rounding out the sound.
Appropriately all over in less than two and three quarters minutes, such is its infectious nature the audience finds themselves chanting along with the chorus on first play through.
What more does rock’n’roll need than this jewel I wonder?

Dane Overton and the Joy Williams Band
There are occasions when social media genuinely does make the world a smaller and more interconnected place. Someone I connect with in Australia live streamed a couple of tracks by Dane Overton and the Joy Williams Band as they played on Saturday – resulting in a new connection being made with the band and via instant messaging here we all are, connected by the internet regardless of our geographic location.
Word arrives of a single coming out in March and an EP due for release in June, news of which I will update as they surface.
As a brief introduction – based on a two and a half minute live performance – of a band I look forward to hearing much more of during the year – the song The Only Way.
