News & Reviews
4. J Xaverre Bingo Wings EP (12" - Moshi Moshi)
J Xaverre, otherwise known as Pete Goften, otherwise known as Johnny X, otherwise known as Lauren Lavernes brother and the less obvious member of Kenikie has just gone it alone. Well, not exactly just, hes been beavering away on his own for quite some time but here are the first fruits of his hidden labour.
Bingo Wings, a five track EP, couldnt be further from the pop star days of the aforementioned family band. Instead, think of Bell & Sebastian and the early Beta Band: humble, twee and childlike acoustics with vocals to match and the odd Goldfrapp stylee excursion make this an impressive debut.
