It’s day 21 on the Joyzine Advent Calendar, the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, which combined with an expected lunar eclipse is set to make tonight the darkest night of the past 500 years! What better way to spend the extra hours of darkness than to snuggle up at home with some prime garage rock from the consistently excellent Roadkill Records?
Track#1: Dedwardians – Kick Me I’m Down
Following a string of awesome gigs and all-dayers around London, Roadkill unleashed their debut record with a scintillating split 7″ from bequiffed rockabilly pair Dedwardians and The Sly Persuaders in September. We have both tracks from the single for you today.
Dedwardians will be bringing their primal rock & roll stomp to Nambucca for their first show of 2017 as they play top glam-punk night Some Weird Sin alongside The Cavemen and Moto Vamp on 27th January.
Track#2: The Sly Persuaders – Wild for the Night
Labelmates The Sly Persuaders will release their debut album, and the first Roadkill LP, on 24th February. The self-titled 12″ will bring together their heady mix of frantic garage rock, effect-heavy psyche and twanging surf riffs.
They play an album launch show, also in conjunction with Some Weird Sin, that’s already looking like one of our favourite line-ups of 2017. Joining The Slys at Nambucca on 24th February will be cinematic blues rock heart throbs Saint Agnes and long-term Joyzine faves Bridport Dagger. We’ve already got our tickets booked.
Check back tomorrow for more free downloads.
