I’ve just discovered SISSY & THE BLISTERS via an e-mail tip-off and I’m rather excited. These garage surf rockers from deepest, darkest London Town are heading our way next month and I urge you all to head down to Oporto to check them out…
Kind of what the Vaccines could sound like if they stopped listening to the Ramones, Sissy & The Blisters kick up a right Hammond-fuelled, brooding lo-fi noise, all swirling feedback and stacato rhythms. Storming.
Steve Lamacq loves them. He declared last year’s Let Her Go the record of the year. Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens are also fans.
There’s plenty more treats on their Soundcloud page – Mystics is a proper racket, make sure you listen to that.
They’re hitting the road to promote new single Killing Time, which is out later this month, and their debut album, due out next year, and are coming to Leeds for a show at Oporto in Call Lane on September 26. Should be a blast in there!
Get more info and that over on their Facebook page.
