• sheepy / lucy's diary Split (7", £3.95)

    label: Blang

    London indie label Blang releases two 2-minute outbursts of infectious pop-punk with a His’n’Hers twist on the themes of growing up and relationships. He (Liverpool) - “I wish I could learn but I don’t have the time.. sometimes I get hurt when I step out of line” and She (London) - “Maybe you’re strange and strong.. baby you’ll see you’re a siren”. Sheepy’s 'Don't Know Much' is a speedball of buzzing guitars and melody worthy of any Buzzcoks or Jam playlist while Lucy’s Diary - 'Pieces of Me' has Lucy Joplin pouting woozy promises and regrets wrapped in a blanket of circular psychobilly guitars and loose beats. Reviews.. "‘Don’t Know Much’ is a collision of Kinks infused pop mixed with Glasgow twee creating an ideal summer vibe... a kaleidoscopic mix of pops finest reference points, blended with humour and self-deprivation... Sheepy have crafted a melodic, hook laden classic – a slice of real independence, so averse and unconcerned as to what is current, to what is gracing the pages of the NME…. (Louder Than War LP review) // “Apart from The Fall I’ve been into listening to Lucy’s Diary. One of my favourite things is ethereal female vocals over dirty guitars, they fit that category well” (Frank Skinner interview in Mojo) // "You instantly know that Lucy Joplin’s junior Kim Deal stance has been achieved by repeated attendance at the school of hard knocks rather than through affectation "(Whisperin' And Hollerin'). Tracklisting: Sheepy: (A) Don’t Know Much / Lucy’s Diary: (AA) Pieces of Me
