With roots back to The Stooges and the grooves and melodies of The Dandy Warhols, merging the fury of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion with the straight simplicity of the Danish Surf rockers The Good The Bad, juggling between the rawness of The Velvet Underground and the new blues spirit of The Black Keys, the French Plymouth Fury serve us a hot and noisy, garage flavored rock with resonances to Spaghetti westerns with Tarantino vibe.
The trio, Worzo – guitar and vocals, Will – bass and vocals, and Stephane Kurdijaka – drums, has been formed in 2007 in Paris, and so far they shared the stage with bands such as Division Of Laura Lee, The Elektrocution, The Bombettes, Favez, It’s Not Not, Magic People, TV Buddah and King of Conspiracy. They have one thing on their minds: to burn all those places down! And honestly, this 70’s taste-like, unpolished, straight and noisy rock it’s just perfect for a hell of an evening down in the club!
My favorites are “The Basement” with it’s quite 60’s sound and rawness; the nervous “Ajo y Agua” with a retro White Stripes spirit; the ironic sentimentalism of “I love you Leigh” and the pounding grooves of “Black Ravines”. But all the 8 tracks of the album are equally good.
So, if you love The White Stripes, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Charlatans, Misfits or The Stooges, and generally, the raw, distorted garage rock with resonances both to punk and blues, Plymouth Fury will make your day and light up your nights.
