So have you had enough of earnest young men sporting beards and ‘dressing down’? I know, I know: always, always. Thank goodness then that Kevin Rowland is hanging around once more looking sharp, strange and stunning. And what about Aggi Doom? They look like some kind of mental ancient Egyptian goddess worshiping cult leaders from space. Tremendous.
Of course The Brogues has been banging on about Aggi Doom for what seems like an eternity. Is he right in proclaiming their genius? Well, yes, he might just be. For their ‘Bring Me The Head’ debut 7” landed on my lap yesterday and has barely ben off the record player. I’ve been dancing around the geek lair manically to the title track in much the same way as I did when Bow Wow Wow popped up on TOTP wanting candy. Thankfully no-one was around to see that. Flipside ‘Cakewalk’ meanwhile inhabits the space Strawberry Switchblade flirted with in their finest downbeat moments and that’s some mighty recommendation. Bring on the new wave of darkwave.
