Mudkiss: The Dustaphonics "Party Girl"

It’s like something from Kerouac’s On The Road - the dank smell of whiskey and stale cigarette smoke curls through the bar, thick and cancerous. It hangs in the witching hour gloom. A woman in stockings moans a tune from across the top of a battered grand piano. She’s sexy and dangerous and mostly every man sober enough to lift his head off the bar is swaying to her hypnotic spell. There are silhouettes of old negroes, sleazy looking men in shabby hats, sunken-eyed junkies - all clanking their bottles and stumbling around in the smog to the ramshackle clatter of the band.

Schwindy's Indie Music Spotlight: The Dustaphonics "Party Girl"

Some bands just know how to do more interesting things than others.

Yet herein lie the middle grey, the space where the talented few, committed and bright, stick to their guns in an otherwise flooded market. I'm talking about The Dustaphonics and their new album Party Girl.

SoundsXP: The Dustaphonics "Party Girl"

When a press release cites a band's influences as "Bo Diddley, Howlin Wolf, The Sonics and Louisiana Red", you generally know what to expect from the record before it's even got within spitting distance of a CD player. The Dustaphonics, however, are a little different. Firstly there's the cover; rather than skinny, sharply dressed throwbacks clutching vintage guitars, we're treated to a colourful drawing of a load of women dancing with far more vigour than is physically possible whilst in high heels (um, so I'm told). It doesn't quite add up until the play button is pressed and the volume cranked up.

First job over this explosive band of rock and roll led by the famous DJ, producer and guitarist , Healer Selecta, which began to walk this band almost as a laboratory product.
