GALANTS – 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 four piece post pop punk (alliterative and alternative) band from Dublin called Galants. They’ve got a debut 10″ EP called “Evergreen” coming out on Easy Action Records, the home of great reissues by Iggy Pop and T-Rex. FFO Husker Du, The Replacements, IRS era REM or Mission of Burma FFS what are you waiting for?
Easy Action have actually made an imprint to put out new music by new bands and it’s called Zen Ten which is apt given the “Zen Arcade” leanings of “Evergreen”. Here’s the cover art, which reminds me of long lost early 90s British alternative band Bivouac with its creepy natural history-ness.
Galants would have totally fitted at a Velvet Sheep live shindig like what we did (sic) in the early 20teens at Whitechapel gallery, cos they combine garage rock simplicity with earnest intelligence and tons of superfuzz bigmuff. They didn’t disappoint with their taste either – here are their ace Lucky 7 choices…
