Honkies – ‘Pagans’ – A riotous southern-rock flavoured calling card

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.
