By The Black Madonnas
The Black Madonnas rock - they're on a Sonic Mook Experiment tour, they're mates with The Beatings, they recorded at Toerag before it was cool and the b-side of the new single is a cover of Gwen Guthrie's "Rent." Title track "Judas", follows a similar style to their last single "White Sands" and sounds like a slightIy chirpy Nick Cave backing a laid back to rawkous sound that by the time the last chorus chant of Judas comes in you can't resist. The refreshing 60s garage influence is most evident on their cover of "Rent" which is fantastic. I'm sure the kids will love this at their local discotheque. This is not garage rock like Datsuns or Vines, this is 13th Floor Elevators in the state of Texas c1966. A nice backing to the grungier "Judas" and all in all, not cobblers.
