SHADY AND THE VAMP
As we told you earlier
[engl] With REATARDS-rippers, BLACK LIPS-shingalings and FATALS-distortion SHADY & THE VAMP puts the deranged teenage youth into wild ecstasy and introduces them to new dances with no names. Slowing down the rhythm while singing in HUNX- and SHANGRI-LAS-tradition to the broken hearted, the fast pogo-chaos changes into kissing lovebirds, lying on dirty beer-floors: Hands get lost, couples become sextets and sometimes a moustache meets a moustache. In 2009 Rickey Rocket & Doc Julius recorded three songs and let them get anonymously into their local garage promoter and played their first concert as "closing-band" for the legendary Englishmen-band THE MASONICS and impressed garage-punk fathers Bruce HEADCOATS Brand and Mickey MILKSHAKES Hampshire: "I don't think they can keep that high energy very long". Since then their killer-song repertoire is still growing ad infinitum. They brought NOBUNNY to cut his feet by shards of beer glasses, they let forget the audience on a dirty saturday night that the main act THE MAGNETIX was missing, KING AUTOMATIC dreams since the two shows he shared with them of a whole band, they gave THE MONSTERS the shivers at their record release party and they also showed JACK OF HEART how to dress properly. In late 2010 SHADY & THE VAMP released their super limited 9-song cassette (so limited, not even numbered) on HIGH TIME records, which was followed in mid 2011 by their 7" Baby, I'm gonna make you mine on HIGH TIME/MONAVALE. It's garage-punk in the way it should sound in this decade. Garage-punk loved by boys and adored by girls. In 2012 they went to Toulouse. During a weekend at LOSPIDERs studio they recorded a couple of songs. The result is a psyched silk-screen printed 10" on Moi J'Connais Records!
