• jc flowers Driving Excitement and the Pleasure of Owners (CD, £11.95)

    label: ATP Recordings

    Debut album from London based newcomers JC Flowers, who formed in 2014 around some Tascam 4 track demos betraying a love of the Velvets, Replacements, Shoes and dB's. They are Issie Spurgeon - Vocals; Noel Anderson - Guitar; Edgar Smith - Vocals, Bass; Tim Garratt - Vocals, Guitar, Keys; Seth Pimlott - Drums. They grind out cheerful existences in South and East London's open-air showroom quarters. Played to the patter of the neo-dustbowl pop directive to please, their songs cover exhaustion, traps and the shortening of horizons. Once pandemics and catastrophe got boring, the band took it back to major-minor chords. Downer sounds for a blinding bright tomorrow. They supported Detroit Punks Death at London’s 100 Club. The album features a cover of David Bowie / Iggy Pop’s ‘China Girl’ Lead singer Issie Spurgeon also plays in London-based band NOVELLA who had support from Consequence of Sound, TLOBF, Wonderland Magazine, Stereogum & Brooklyn Vegan. Tracks: Jazz Hole I / Ym Mhorthcawl / Spent / Jazz Hole II / Dust Planet / Proletarieterette / Jazz Hole III / JC Flowers / Jazz Hole IV / Two Weeks / China Girl
