Let’s Go, Go, Go…

If you are not from England, you may not be familiar with Margate, the seaside town that Victorians based their mediterranean holiday dreams on and what the Spanish costas deprived Margate of; namely tourists. For centuries, weary Londoners have travelled the easy few hours to the fresh shores of Kent, to partake in that very English past-time of eating fish and chips on the beach. That was  until the huddled masses were given proper wages and packed up nan and auntie and buggered off to Benidorm in Southern Spain to…er, east fish and chips on the beach. Whats left of Margate’s glory days is whats evident on local band  Two Wounded Birds’s surf-rock video Britannia-style, the beach and one of the last remaining Wimpy’s hamburger restaurants. I like the Birds efficient and no-nonsense sound, you’ve got what you need; the guitars, the drums and a few cool kids (one of them is even called Johnny Danger, how rad is that?!)  riding the very British grey clouds and waves. Even the song comes in at a decisive 1 minute and 51 seconds, keeping  the fuss to a minimum and the impact to a maximum. Not surprisingly Jacob Graham of The Drums sniffed out this band like some indie pop surf hound before anyone else did and they are now Moshi Moshi label mates and opening gigs for The Drums. Exhilarating stuff.

  1. I’ve never heard of this band, but from this clip that I saw, I think I’d really like them. And, did you really have to mention fish and chips?! Now I’m craving it! 😉

  2. I love fish n’ chips, my grandfather was from England and he used to eat them with me all the time when I was a kid. The video was pretty cool, short and sleek, it rocked.
