BAND SPOTLIGHT// The Crepes
Today we take a glance at the latest passenger on the side-project train: Plastic Passion's bassist Lemmi Eaton, and his new band The Crepes. They produce a variety of noises, including the barbershop doo-wop of 'Love Is For Mugs', but their main drive seems to be danceable funked-up noise-punk: 'Prettymusicmakingmachine' is particularly good, combining the Plastic Passion vocal style with an instrumental line that sounds like listening to XX Teens playing 50s rock 'n' roll with your head in a bucket of water. Fans of Plastic Passion needn't fear, since Lemmi claims the band are 'just for fun', but it's certainly an intriguing and enjoyable listen, and some live performances further down the road would certainly be welcome... a band to keep an eye on, certainly.
