Sounds of Liverpool Psych Fest #3: Drenge
It is a happy time indeed, friends, when psychedelic music is enjoying such popularity, as it is these days. Bacchanals celebrating this favored genre of yours truly are popping up all over the place (most notably in Austin, of course), but such a festival has recently popped up on my radar from across the pond. Obviously, I would love to be in England for the Liverpool Psych Fest (full official fancy name: Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia), but since I can’t be there, these are some of the bands that I find most appealing.
The word Drenge for some reason makes me think of sludge, which is a little bit apros pos, seeing as Drenge actually make seriously sludgy, dirty, muddy rock and roll. Loud, sonically lewd, and pretty hard to ignore, I've no doubt Drenge will blow the roof off whatever venue they happen to be playing. Having a song called "People In Love Make Me Feel Yuck" also earns plenty of points in my book. Trust.
