Absolutely storming E.P. of covers from Dublin band The Pacifics that's just bursting with energy including a brilliant version of "You Can't Judge a Book By Looking At The Cover". The band seems to have captured that vitality and raw soul of classic rocknroll perfectly, there's Hamburg-era Beatles, Thee Milkshakes, The Sonics, Chuck Berry all fighting to get out.
I haven't seen the band live yet but would jump at the chance as I can imagine it would be a great night out, so here's a press release from the band themselves:
The Doyens of Diddley, Archdukes of A-Major, Bards of the Beat, Kings of Klaaaang are here!
Dublin's premier Beat/R&B group The Pacifics release their debut EP on June 10th through their own Mistkäfer Records imprint. Made up of their favourite songs and recorded in glorious mono, The Pacifics Play Favourites serves as ther perfect introduction to the most exciting group in Ireland.
Renowned for their wild live shows and smart attire, The Pacifics have been playing their din up and down the country for the last year, leaving a trail of broken drum kits and fan club badge wearing fanatics in their wake.
Look out for The Pacifics vinyl debut later in the year, as well as a European tour.
