Label: Too Pure Release date: 15/11/10 Link: Myspace Buy: Amazon From the very first scratchy chords of new single ‘Never Satisfied’ from Stoke Newington based duo Cowbell, you know what you’re going to get and the getting is good. Already picked up by BBC 6 Music and Radio 2, Cowbell’s infectious, familiar sound throws you straight back to the best of 60’s garage rock, with Jack Sandham’s catchy riffs and Wednesday Lyle’s self assured drums shoving you directly into the midst of a dirty garage rock gig at The Marquee in 1968. With an enigmatic front man and female drummer, it’s hard not to reference a similarly setup duo from the other side of the pond, but White Stripes comparisons aside, this is a brilliant record and more than just an echo of it’s influences. It has enough rock sensibility to get you up on your feet and enough soul to get you singing. This is an impressive debut from a band who have been in existence for little more than a year, and promises great things. Keep your ears out for these two, for I have a sneaking suspicion they are going to be around for a while. In the all too predictable words of Christopher Walken: I have a fever and the only prescription is more Cowbell. Photobucket
