NODZZZ get Loose in Cardiff
NODZZZ / RACE HORSES
Saturday 26th September **early show 7.30pm-9.45pm**
Nodzzz are Sean Paul on guitar, Anthony Atlas on bass, and Eric Butterworth on drums. Killer single "(I Don't Wanna) Smoke Marijuana" b/w "We Are the Only Animals" was released on Eric's Make a Mess imprint, barely 3 minutes long, each side tore the face off of the last days of 2007, revealing a candy skeleton that had the Modern Lovers' teeth marks in it.
The group's self-titled debut is a grower, with ten new songs in a markedly more pop direction. You can hear the simple American pleasures of baseball, road trips and late summer within, plain as day within this record. More specifically, you can hear three guys examining where punk became something more, between notions of power pop and advanced songwriting on the Embarrassment/Big Dipper/ Pointed Sticks axis, but with the economy of the Minutemen or Beat Happening."
