I’m beginning to worry about the prog-rock tendencies of The Phil Collins 3, as the last track on this 8-track demo is a massive, epic, 1 min 37 seconds long. Perhaps it’s the Black Sabbath piss-take/tribute at the start which pushes it over the edge.
In any case, the Brighton four-piece know what they want to say, and say it fast. Be it “chicken nutsack… chicken nutsack” repeated over and over, and other classics such as ‘John Craven’s Paper Round’ and ‘I Love Phillipa Collins’ - musically they’re all over the shop.
No, they’ve obviously not your ‘normal’ band. They don’t have singers, they have “screamers” (for want of a better word). They dress up in homemade costumes onstage and are generally a bit… odd. Odd, yes, fucking fantastic? Yes.
