DDD02V – Black Vinyl, edition of 236
Volume 01 of the DIE DAS DER Singles Club.
“A series of split 7″ singles featuring of the most intriguing and exciting bands from Birmingham and beyond…”
Kicking off with the archetypal bridesmaids of the Birmingham underground scene, VICTOR. On the cusp of greatness in 2014, after releasing just two official tracks and laying waste to every local stage with some incendiary and legendary performances, the 5-piece fractured and fell, only to quietly drift back together four years later to produce this gem of a track. What does the future hold? Something? Anything? Nothing? Who knows. Just enjoy this moment with us.
Victor is: Georgina, Meesha, Andrew, Chris, Danny.
And EXOTIC PETS. Drawn together in the crucible of Birmingham from the 3 corners of the UK – mercurial songs with biting lyrics, flung from sticks, picks and vocal ticks. Variety and dexterity showing that the presence of levity does not preclude hidden depths, and depth of emotion. ‘Meteor Or Matador’ scales high heights from humble beginnings – climaxing in a perfectly formed hammer drill powered solo. These Pets bite back.
Exotic Pets is: Dave. Becky, Adam.
