The harry-nash East London crack-punk trio False Heads consisting of Luke Griffiths, Barney Nash and Jake Elliott, channel a delinquent attitude that finds their sounds caught somewhere between the early grunge of Foo Fighters and the arrogance of The Buzzcocks.
Despite their young age, the band have already garnered strong support from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music, NME, Clash Magazine, Q Magazine, Artrocker and Drowned In Sound; and are signed to Gary Powell’s (The Libertines) label 25 Hour Convenience Store.
The next year is looking set to be a big one for the band.
We listened to ‘Steal and Cheat‘ —
Chiming guitars are melodious and tasty.
The scheming, cheeky vocal patters out like a benefits cheat in his noonday slippers.
The lyrics are Cockney-cheekyass — interesting and will make you smile.
And the musicianship is as neat and sharp as one of The Modfather’s best silk suits.
This is as necessary (yet, somehow, disposable) as the last few draws on an early-morning joint.
