Música Inclasificable: Harry Violet and the Sharks "Jungle Cavalcade"
To welcome 2016, the British label Dirty Waters Records released its first launch of the year, which is the calling card of Harry Violet & The Sharks, a devilish quartet from the ever-rainy London.
Unlike other groups that tend to build on its sound to the guitar or drums, in the case of this combo it is the prime instrument saxophone in charge of directing the course of the two themes that make up the 7 ".
With the firm intention of bringing back the basic and primal sound of rock & roll, which will inject powerful dose of boogie woogie and swing, the goal is clear: to encourage listeners to practice a festive dance without redemption, similar to jive that prevailed just over half a century among youth.
As a first sign of this promising quartet sound, the two songs featured are original compositions drinking directly from the teachings of Link Wray, Screamin 'Jay Hawkins and all dark and unknown groups they always paid them homage Lux Interior of The Cramps.
Another thing to note is that both the A-side "Jungle Cavalcade" as its counterpart "Dance At The Korova" were inspired by the iconic novel A Clorkwork Orange, written by Anthony Burgess in 1962 and adapted for the screen nine years later by Stanley Kubrick. There is the obvious reference to Korova, which in the book is a milk bar.
A very brief presentation by Harry Violet & The Sharks, group that you should pay attention and track waiting for a further extension work. Until that happens, their first 7 "contains two very good appetizers that slightly dampened appetite.
