Bad Shoes
by Stagger Lee (Split Lip Records)


The debut single from Dublin this outfit embodies, as their name suggests, the spirit of Robert Johnson’s bargain with the devil, coupled with vocals in the direct lineage of P J Harvey out of Patti Smith. A sizzling live experience, they boast a rock solid boy/girl rhythm section that can actually play, an inventive blues-based guitarist in Grum, and a blankly cute singer in Donna. Deserving of serious attention.
