Scott “Deluxe” Drake/The Gee Strings (split 7″)

ScottGStrLITTLE RICHARD on a cover can never be a bad sign when you love rock’n’roll, right? These guys sure know it! You get two originals and two LITTLE RICHARD songs (or songs popularized by him to be more precise) on this split 7″ vinyl, so no bad surprises ahead…
The original thing here is that these two bands share the same rhythm section: Mad Macst and Buanax from French surf punk rock band The IRRADIATES. Both have been touring with SCOTT DRAKE and The GEE STRINGS for a while now, so the idea of a split record appears to be as logical as good.
On A-side, Scott “Deluxe” Drake (The HUMPERS…) offers us one of his songs “Your Secret Face”, a good mix of ’77 punk and garage rock’n’roll, and a cover of “Keep A Knockin” that leads him close to a band like The JIM JONES REVUE. By the way, check out Scott’s new band The LOVESORES!
On the other side, German female-fronted punk rock’n’roll band The GEE STRINGS rock hard and tight with their song “Detox Too”, and their cover of “The Girl Can’t Help It”, a song which really fits them well. The kind of cover that makes the audience want more when you play it live as an encore!
There’s only 330 pieces (220 black and 110 coloured vinyl with 2 different covers) of this American/German/French split 7″ on Spanish record label Ghost Highway recordings, you should hurry up!/Laurent C.
