The Lost Souls Club hail from Southampton and have been touring overseas and in the UK building a steady reputation for themselves. Perhaps more NME fodder on first listen (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are a definite comparison sound wise), dig a little deeper and you discover delights like the 60’s psychedelic harmonies on ‘Kiss Away The Sun’. Then there is the pounding bass line on ‘Romeo’ that sounds like the White Stripes, only better. There is a change of pace on the laid back ‘I Know I Spoke Too Soon’ and ‘Shoot Me Down’ has a groovy stoner vibe to it.

There is a lot of promise on this EP and I’d expect to hear a lot more about the Lost Souls Club in the coming months and years.

THE CRUNCH – Down By The Border [Released 03.06.13]

Bit of a punk rock supergroup here as the line-up features Soren ‘Sulo’ Karlsson of Diamond Dogs fame, joined by original Clash drummer Terry Chimes, bassist Dave Tregunna (Sham 69/Lords of the New Church) and guitarist Mick Greggus (Cockney Rejects).

Bizarrely despite the punk pedigree the two songs on here reminded me more of bands like the Quireboys and of course Diamond Dogs, as they feature gang choruses and guitar that has a little hint of classic rock ‘n’ roll about it.

Two great songs that bode well for the band’s debut album due in October.
