The Pink Flowers

Hazy waves of guitar drifts around the room as The Pink Flowers take the audience on journey of fuzzy reverb. Percussion switches between moments of quiet imperceptibility to geeing up the tracks like a jockey pushing a horse towards the finishing post as a melted vocal floats ethereally in the distance.

Newly out of the blocks The Pink Flowers only have a few songs I have had the opportunity to hear, the most recent of which they have packaged as a three track single – Joy, which I immediately put into a loop as inside the laid-back out-put lay a spread of ideas which can be caught and investigated further on repeated play.

They have laid out the ground-work for their career in the music industry, with both recorded material appearing and it looks as though live performances are about to commence. Of most importance the music they are producing holds the attention and demands a replay.

I certainly look forward to hearing more in short order and wish them well.

Hooton Tennis Club

Hooton Tennis Club – there is something quintessentially English about a band who names themself after a fee based lawn tennis club who play on plastic grass, based in Cheshire. If none of that resonates – think of your most pretentious region of the desperate middle class sub-achievers.

Hooton Tennis Club as a band – now that is all together a different story as they scour away the net curtains and plastic windows to deliver an excoriated journey to extrapolate an invectivitude of implied evisceration all laid in a park of skittles and croquet hoops.

The subtlety of the compositions make for their impressiveness as the quartet provide a social commentary on the world they see around as the easy flowing music floats around the room in laconic drifts of open spaces, whilst on opening the ears the sneer is writ large across the scores.

I am minded of The Nerve who had much to say, but put it so abstrusely that few captured the essence – with their songs now capitulated into The Troggs. However I do recommend you spend time with Hooton Tennis Club to ingest the conundrums and on allowing yourself the space, you will find a band of consciousness who don’t find the need to shout and for that I give them credit and trust you will too.

The Tarsiers

Retro glam-rock comes to mind on hitting play as The Tarsiers deliver big open spaces of rock which flow around the room in soaring compositions which don’t try to be anything other than what they are, good old fashioned fun-times. Whilst stylistically the music resonates of the past and any number of lists of ‘reminds me of’ could be written, the songs themselves are of today and it this is ability to combine the past with present that gives the trio an interesting out-put.

The Tarsiers produce pieces that convince the ears there must be more than three people involved, as although there is much activity by the individual players, they are able to deliver the tracks both with power and control.

Whilst the music translates well to recorded out-put, in fact there is a five track EP on it’s way, this is music best enjoyed with a crowd of other people at the front of the stage.
