Pussy Cat Rock
The sight of most bands limping into the ring for album three is painful to watch: bruised and bloodied, lacking imagination and that killer (right) hook, the crowd can hear the canvas beckoning. To see Pepe DeluxÃƒÂ©, the Finnish duo who thrive on invention and reinvention, come out floating and stinging like the proverbial butterfly and bee is, conversely, a sight to behold. With a brand new album - Spare Time Machine - ready to go, Pepe DeluxÃƒÂ© now deliver the opening punch with this feisty little 7".
Now 'Spare Time Machine' has arrived, taking things up yet another level. It has all the funk of their best material but doused in the spirit of uproarious '60s psychedelia and '70s prog-rock. What's more it's entirely sample-free.
A blast of fierce and feline garage rock, 'Pussy Cat Rock', and it's hauntingly psychedelic flipside 'Ms. Wilhelmina And Her Hat', hint at the musical delights awaiting on the forthcoming album. Combining Pepe's trademark offbeat sonic research with lyricism of equal strangeness and wonder. Happily, both studio experimentation and lyrical flights of fancy are tethered to red-blooded funk-rock from a future-past dimension where King Crimson are led by Clyde Stubblefield and get down with prime-time Lee Hazelwood.
