this is the debut album from palma violets on rough trade. '180' was recorded in london at rak studios (produced by steve mackey), and also at the lightship (produced by rory attwell). it's not often a band gets on the cover of nme when their debut single is still a fortnight away from release. and it's even rarer that they live up to the excitement. palma violets do. palma violets operate somewhere between the two extremes of hype and heroism; dishing out an album that sounds half like a roguish and ramshackle 60's garage band and half blistering rock and roll. every song has energy, power and presence. the album title '180' is the number of the lambeth house that the four-piece have become known for regularly throwing parties and impromptu gigs for friends and fans in. for fans of the modern lovers, the libertines and early clash.
