THE ETHICAL DEBATING SOCIETY – Lucky 7

THE ETHICAL DEBATING SOCIETY – Lucky 7 LUCKY 7 is the feature where we ask artists to name their 6 favourite songs by others, and a lucky 7th song of their own… Today it’s a band that I only heard of recently to my shame. I saw that Jennifer Denitto of Linus (and The Wimmins Institute) was off to see them on a bill with the band Foxcunt and Jennifer being an original VS fanzine interviewee (in fact one of the first – and...

AMPLIFIER – Lucky 7

AMPLIFIER – Lucky 7 LUCKY 7 is the feature where we ask artists to name their 6 favourite songs by others, and a lucky 7th song of their own… Everyone who’s been to Manchester has a similar story to tell; they got stuck behind a slow moving vehicle on the way in; the city was way bigger and way cooler than they were expecting “It’s like London in the North!” they cry; and they saw Mani from the Stone...

GOLD CLASS – Lucky 7

GOLD CLASS – Lucky 7 LUCKY 7 is the feature where we ask artists to name their 6 favourite songs by others, and a lucky 7th song of their own… Today, is the turn of Australian post punk four piece Gold Class. Think Bronski Beat “Smalltown Boy” crossed with Fugazi’s “Waiting Room” and throw in some pleasingly agricultural production by Gareth Liddiard of VS favs The Drones, and you’ll be some way...

THE PEACERS – Lucky 7 LUCKY 7 is the feature where we ask artists to name their 6 favourite songs by others, and a lucky 7th song of their own… Today, is the turn of The Peacers! Peacers is the new-ish (circa 2015) super-exciting band of Mike Donovan, San Francisco garage punk, cohort of Ty Segall, and formerly of Sic Alps. On the peerless Drag City records, the label ostensibly formed to put out records by my all-time favs Royal...

SEXTILE – Lucky 7

SEXTILE – Lucky 7 LUCKY 7 is the feature where we ask artists to name their 6 favourite songs by others, and a lucky 7th song of their own… Today, is the turn of astrologically named and attuned LA band Sextile, on the verge of releasing their second album of jittering pulses and irresistible motorik rhythm “Albeit Living” (out on 14th July). With the locked-on groove of Suicide and the narked irritability of Alien Sex...

SCHOOL DAMAGE – Lucky 7

SCHOOL DAMAGE – Lucky 7 LUCKY 7 is the feature where we ask artists to name their 6 favourite songs by others, and a lucky 7th song of their own… Today, is the turn of a quartet from Melbourne called School Damage. They play wonky pop that’s part Stereolab, part Vaselines, part Young Marble Giants and yet all their own. They also have a band photo that I absolutely love – it’s a bit moody, a bit surprised, a bit...
