oh what a night...
The Fresh & Onlys (USA)
San Francisco's garage rock scene is alive and kicking and best personified by The Fresh & Onlys.

If you don't mind comparisons, they're located South of R.E.M. and West of the Go-Betweens or something and are led by frontman Tim Cohen who's in turn being pushed from behind by Shayde Sartin, Kyle Gibson and Wymond Miles.

Sure, their breathtaking style's somewhat based on the past but hooks fully into the present, it's sharp and precise stuff and it will pierce your armour and rattle your soul. Their musical inspiration are many, let's go consulting the telephone book and drop some names: Buzzcocks, Mekons, Country Joe McDonald, John Cale, J.J. Cale, The Gun Club, Brian Eno's 'Here Come The Warm Jets', Damned, Deviants, Jacobites, The Black Lips, Gene Vincent (alas, not listed any longer).

The Black Lips and Deerhunter yanked them out of their garage and on tour with them which led to a rapid increase in their fan-base, especially if you include all the babies made after any of their shows. This is not least due to the charm level of this band that oozes onto and engulfs the crowd like the slimy stuff in the movie Ghostbusters. And bust your reserve and stony hearts they will.

Just digest their 2012 «Long Slow Dance» (see what we mean by babies and all?), it pictures fresh flowers on the cover that will open the door only for you and the tunes themselves promise a night of earthly delights. So, for all you incurable romantics, just slide off the G.Alley and enter through our garage door and indulge in your romantic and other addictions.
