Fluffer Records, the visceral London based label that not only bought us a host of unforgettable live music nights featuring the likes of Slaves, God Damn, Cerebral Balzy and Bad For Lazarus, but are also responsible for recorded output of garage-punk duo Love Buzzard, have proudly announced the release of their newest signing, Sewer Rats.
Their vinyl EP, ‘Money Maker’’ marks over a year of searching for the perfect band to follow up Love Buzzard’s latest release. Expectation is high as these upstarts continue to make waves in the London live music circuit and, having come across the three piece in a disused Grimsby Fish Market, we’re promised a live show like nothing else. Sewer Rats are the real deal, uncontainable attitude collides head-on with chorus hooks full of genuine rock swagger and grit. Transcendental psychedelic jams follow beer soaked crowd surfing and riotous noise-outs.
This EP release captures so much more than just their live shows too, conveying the energy there, raw passion and noise. It also showcases the staggering musicianship the boys can muster, 20 years old and channelling a range of the greats from The Doors to Motörhead. ‘Money Maker’ opens with the aptly named ‘Skint’, a beat driven blues dirge with doom breakdowns and guitars that rip and roar like muddied chainsaws. Bruce Campbell facing off an Army of Darkness.
‘Devil Blues’ brings forward more psychedelic guitars and sinister, other-worldly double vocals before ‘Black Label Serotonin’ breaks up the speed-core with cleaner, acid-soaked psych. Here we’re left to bake in the sun, lifted away momentarily before a wall of feedback has us crash down to earth joined by the pounding drums and fierce riffs of ‘Moneymaker’.
The EP closer, ‘So Far Away’, impresses with Americana hard rock melodies and harsh vocals to rival Lemmy himself. Shredding, classic guitar solos battle against Sabbath-esc, drawn out chords leaving us in many ways as their live shows do, eager for more and desperate for another hit.
Fluffer Records are calling them “The Future of British Rock N Roll”, and at this point in their career, it’s hard to argue.
