• fame-beats Don't Tell No Lies / The Watford Stomp (7", £6.25)

    The Fame-Beatsí Davey Lane and Rusty Hopkinson are known to some as long time band mates in celebrated Australian rock-and-roll group You Am I. These two plucky charmers share a keen interest in Hamburg era British pop and it was on a stroll down the Reeperbahn that they decided to commit their love of all things BEAT to tape. The Fame-Beats motor along a Cuban-heeled path from Merseybeat via the Medway, doffing their caps at favourite big-beat-acts, such as Bern Elliot & The Fenmen, The Milkshakes, Russ Kruger and of course that most Fab Four, along the way. DONíT TELL NO LIES is the sad tale of a young man spurned told with the aid of chiming chords and soaring harmonies. THE WATFORD STOMP is a reckless Cavern-styled romp that demands you to DANCE.
