For us, Derdang Derdang by UK group Archie Bronson Outfit was one of the album highlight of 2006. Garage-blues, the funky drummer beat and a smattering of psychedelia made for one fun-racket. Check out the videos for Cherry Lips & Dart For my Sweetheart. Live too they delivered the goods and were arguably the highlight act of the 2007 Laneway series of festivals.
Earlier this year ABO released Coconut, the follow-up to Derdang, Derdang and it did not disappoint. Hoola, the second and latest single from Coconut can be seen here . In an inspired move by director Alex Smith it features footage from the long lost British Z-grade movie of the same name.
All things going well, Archie Bronson Outfit will be visiting us again this summer. Should they make it, you need to be there. Trust us.
Likely… Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Built to Spill, Holly Golightly, Caribou, Fourtet & much more.
