Maximum Balloon, Theophilus London, Rub Shebeen and The Naked And The Famous

Ya gotta love the artist name MAXIMUM BALLOON. Great name for a band/ producer. With such fabulous artist naming talent hooking up with such a great voice the moment the concept of MB featuring THEOPHILUS LONDON was introduced to my conscious I was expecting big things. ‘Groove Me’ totally delivers. Big tune!

There is an element of Dan Le Sac ‘Thou Shall Always…’ genius about RUB SHEBEEN’s ‘Old Punk’. Clever, funny and I dare say for one or two old timers out there pretty fucking poignant. The lyrical genius is accompanied by some jaunty punk tuneage you can have a good ole mosh too.

More than a hint of Passion Pit bout THE NAKED AND The FAMOUS, certainly on the vocal front. Musically bit more on the MGMT side of things (album une) which for me is a pretty tasty combo, try a bite of ‘Young Blood’ I think ya might like it.

Was expecting a bit more ‘fun’ in the video though…
