“SONG FOR EWE”
with POPPY TWIST of
“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guest is a friend of VS, the hella-thumping drum major from the most exciting garage band in Britain, Table Scraps who are set to release their new LP “Autonomy” tomorrow! Welcome back to a drummer who hits like Adam & The Ants’ Dave Barbarossa, fills like Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor from Motorhead and high-rolls like Animal in a lo-rider, the super brilliant Poppy Twist!
Here’s another vomit comet spin of Table Scraps’ lead single from “Auotonomy” – “Sick of Me”! (no way are we)
“Autonomy” is so great. It zips from the claustrophobic garage of “Always Right” to the poppy end “Bleach” era Nirvana with the self-effacement of “I’m A Failure” with a bit of heavy heavy monster sound, like the Melvins have hit the “pessimizer” pedal on “My Obsession”. Poppy’s drumming is insistent, primal, instinctive, it is the granite on which the table of Table Scraps is built, and the unrelenting psychedelic jungle rhythm of the whole “Autonomy” album is irresistible. Geddit. I insist. The whole band has impeccable taste in music, so what gem has Poppy picked from out the Scraps’ crates? Over to Pop…
“Fad Gadget: Collapsing New People (1984)
This track was a teenage discovery for me as I was racing through Mute Records’ back catalogue, and I return to it all the time. It’s addictive and dance-able, which is a tall order for something so lyrically bleak punctuated by the clink of glass bottles.”
THANK YOU POPPY!
ALBUM IS OUT TOMORROW. GET IT HERE…
