FLAMINGO DRIVE (right)
Flamingo Drive are intelligent, timeless, guitar pop with a dynamic voice, inimitable razor-sharp psychedelic verse and the best twin guitar play-off since Verlaine met Lloyd or Kramer duelled with Sonic-Smith.
Manchester's garage rock'n'roll sensations, banging out an irresistible sound between garage & soul. Think The 13th Floor Elevators, The Count Five, The Stairs, The Electric Prunes, Joe Meek, Captain Beefheart, & Small Faces...
London's sweet country rockers. IPO said "Think of all your favorite music from the 60s - be it the intricate harmonies of soft pop Left Banke style, Merseybeat, or the bubblegummy mod sounds of The Monkees, these have got it all!
Then DJs Phil Istine, Charlie Salvidge (Toy) and Imogen (Velvet Cave Vintage) will spin your world via ’60s/’70s dancefloor psychedelia, garage, beat, and general rock’n’roll wondermints!
