The Notes – Songbook c21

Found out about this UK pop group while browsing the selections on the Felt Cat Tapes site. The Notes cover more of 70/80’s UK pop ground as opposed to their lo-fi synth driven labelmates. Wonderfully simple one-note guitar melodies over galloping bass lines fitted perfectly with vocals from dreamland. Their MySpace page sites Jesus & Mary Chain, Velvet Underground, Joy Division, and Young Marble Giants as influences, and yup i would have to agree. And from what i can tell, The Notes are 3 people and a drum machine from Southampton, UK just starting out. Can’t wait to hear more from these fellows….
