The south London ramshackle rock and roll group release ‘Pagans’ through Permanent Creeps Records.
London imprint Permanent Creeps Records have brought together two notorious south London bands for a split single release. Peeping Drexels unleash the chaotic and driving meaty slab of rock and roll in Bills Drift, whilst Honkies release a riotous southern-rock infused number in Pagans.
Pagans has a ramshackle, country-driven rhythm which is backed by swelling synths in this dark and chaotic rolling piece of rock and roll. The track finds it’s groove as the intensity increases into a short, sharp bubbling rumble of carnival-country-rock, it may feel more at home in the deeper south of the U.S of A than south of the Thames, but it’s bold and remarkable and makes you want to rally to it’s cause.
