White Ape from London in England is the rock ‘n’ roll quartet of Tommy Mack (Vocals), Jim Turner (Guitar), Mike Davies (Bass) and Olly Golding (Drums).
From which ever angle you approach White Ape – don’t forget your dancing feet as the scintillating reference points of ska, rock-a-billy and Morricone will sweep you on to the dance-floor.
The music cascades around the wall like a pin-ball machine bouncing the ball at obtuse angles and variable speed. The percussion / bass combine to salve the audience in frothing footsteps, whilst the guitar sings of entropy, which scatters the dancers around the room and a vocal pithily espouses of social discord.
White Ape have the ability to extrude the elements of body sway and social context to afford the listener with plenty to keep them busy, be they sedentary or flailing around the room.
A six track EP – Waiting to Say This, which I have had the pleasure of dancing with – is planned for release on the 6th through Sotones Records.
From the EP – the opening track – A Run For Gringo.
