ARCHIE BRONSON OUTFIT
I contacted the UK's Archie Bronson Outfit a couple months ago to request an MP3 so that I could post on them at the time. Alas, I never heard from the bastards. Good thing I am a highly forgiving fellow.
Truth is, I'd already used the band's song "Cherry Lips" in my Best of March mix (still available [here], last I checked). I may have purloined that groove-y gem from Scatter o' Light (no doubt on a slow news day for Bono's latest coif and/or the international state of soccer). (I kid! I kid!) (Though, honesty, SOCCER?! Give me futbol americano or give me death.)
These gentlemen have a slightly "dirty," perhaps slightly "bluesy" quality to their rock. Now, I'm not generally partial to the blues in any way, shape, or form, so one should not be dissuaded from giving these guys a listen based on that description. Think of them primarily as a neo-Britpop group that's taken a two-day tour of pre-Katrina Louisiana. Or something.
Archie Bronson Outfit's second full-length album, Derdang Derdang, has already been released in the UK. It should be available everywhere on July 25.
