Tuesday, March 20, 2007Sugar Sugar Honey
The Sugars are rock'n'roll. They work crappy day jobs and gig by night. When I saw then A MONTH AGO (this is how behind I'm getting!) at Bloomdbury Bowling Lanes they had already done a full day's work back in Leeds and were driving up first thing the next morning to do another one. That is rock'n'roll. Also rock'n'roll (in the classic sense) was the venue...an on-site diner, karaoke rooms, swirly carpets, loads of fit fifties rocker boys, rocker girls and housewives. Hairnets and high-waists galore. It's definitely my favourite subculture at the moment - everyone is so immaculate and sexy. The Sugars played a blistering 25 minute set of their signature garage rock with call-and-response vocals ending on their single (#6 in the Indie charts they told us) Monsters, which was, as previously stated, monstrous. Look how good they look:
Wow. Hot stuff.
