Distorsioni: Beat Seeking Missiles: "Break My Fall" b/w "Doctor Strangelove"

[translation by Google]

Best record of the trio, however, is Break My Fall / Doctor Strangelove. Or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the Beat Seeking Missiles, and movie buffs will recognize the kilometric title a reference to Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove and the imaginary sci-fi sixties (the whole thing is played on graphical poster of the film). The Beat Seeking Missiles a garage rock sound minimal, but adult and evolved, which borders with the beat, with the English garage revival of the 80s and 90s (Milkshakes and Headcoats all) and interacts with Bo Diddley: after all, the leader of the band is Sir Bald Diddley. The quartet of Oxford gives us two pieces dominated by riff well constructed and articulated, in some parts vaguely stoogesiani (Doctor Strangelove is a mix between Bo Diddley and 1969). A very interesting debut. To be followed absolutely.
