Formed in 2006 through a firey caesarean of distortion and feedback, these wild eyed wildcats scream and wail about loving rock ‘n’ roll, destroying rock ‘n’ roll and fuckin’ rock ‘n’ roll! Their first album was on the mighty Crypt Records and their latest is on the super hip Dirty Water Records! And the singer wears a crash helmet onstage. A fuckin’ crash helmet!
“Edgy, drugged-up thug punk. Loss Leader is Thames Estuary crude given a vital contemporary twist. Invest now.”
“On tracks such as Writeabout, singer David Burke’s quick-fire Essex-drawl conveys barbed verse worthy of John Cooper Clarke or Mark E.Smith.”
Eight Rounds Rapid’s songs are rooted in trad blues, but guitar from Simon Johnson and singer David Alexander’s acerbic delivery make the act sound like John Cooper Clarke and Mark E Smith jamming in a Southend bus depot, with their gritty tales of the Essex underworld.
The group gained a national audience last year when they supported Wilko Johnson on his UK Farewell Tour, winning over BBC DJs, Artrocker magazine and a clutch of bloggers with their polarising performances at Camden’s Koko.
