Hey You Guys/Das Sexy Clap – Split vinyl single review
Split rock ‘n’ roll grooves
Side A: Hey You Guys! – Keston Villers’ Investment Club
Side AA: Das Sexy Clap – On Our Knees
This is the new vinyl-only split single from the bands Hey You Guys! and Das Sexy Clap, both from Worcester.
First up, HYG!, whose A-side appearance is actually their debut single – they’re loud, they’re quirky and if this is anything to go by, they’ve got some infectious tunes, as demonstrated by their offering, ‘Keston Villers’ Investment Club’. Imagine a band who takes the energy of A and combines it with the punk rock attitude of The Hives, and you’d get something akin to this. They’re worth catching live too, having recently seen them perform.
If the idea of a heavier, scuzzier version of The White Stripes appeals to you, then give Das Sexy Clap a listen. Their side of this single features the track ‘On Our Knees’, a catchy, noisy number that could take on any bigger garage rock band you could think of, and trounce them with this alone. This is actually their last release for the forseeable future, with the duo announcing they’re now on a break – in the meantime, I recommend checking out their back catalogue, some of which is available as free downloads on their Bandcamp site.
This split vinyl single can be purchased from http://dassexyclap.bandcamp.com/album/on-our-knees, and at HYG!’s live shows.
