Although a strong contender for worst band name ever,(no offense to the band intended, maybe I just missed the joke in there somewhere) Get Back Guinozzi have just made available for your advance listening pleasure,a song from their debut 7″ single.  Part 60’s day-glo pop mixed with early new wave, a breezy, bouncy, ready for summer rendition of Police and Theives, a cover of the Junior Murvin/Lee Perry song, probably best known via The Clash’s version.  A perfect accompaniment to kicking back poolside with your favorite libation of choice on a hot day, it’s got me curious to hear the rest of their upcoming album.

Splitting it’s home base between London and the South Of France the band has a euro-tinged sound augmented by the distinctive and enchanting vocals of Eglantine Gouzy. The balance of the band includes co founder Fred Landini as well as Regis Laugier (bass), Luc Benito (drums) and Fabrice Giuisiano (guitar, keyboard).

The Low Files Tropical b/w Police & Thieves 7″ will be released on September 14th, with their full length titled Carpet Madness due October 19th on FatCat Records out of the UK.  They’re also promising an Autumn tour. Watch for them.

It’s ony a few more days until Cinco De Mayo, the holiday that marks the anniversary of the revolution by the underpaid agave pickers who were constantly being forced to work long hours in the desert for little pay to help support the worldwide demand for tequila.
Just kidding, it’s not really a revolution but Cinco De Mayo does actually commemorate a victory, that of the Mexican forces over the French in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
