The Peter Parkers

This Is Sity Music April 2004

This record is just so full of ideas that it is hard to get a handle on who The Peter Parkers are. Like My Bloody Valentine play Arab Strap play 16 Horsepower play Matthews Southern Comfort play The Peter Parkers. And it all works. Let's just call it Deep Indie - music to disturb, perplex, relax and enjoy. This is the sort of music that has to be heard because it defies description. I recall the first album by The Pale Saints, one that I have listened to for nearly 20 years and still find it unfamiliar and exciting. Here's to the next 20 years of listening to The Peter Parkers.

P.S. I love the pictures of the band members on the front page of the website - the same lighting as Queen used once (probably on Bohemain Rhapsody). Scary!
