my favourite rock & roll boys the rohypsters have just uploaded a lovely new set of demos and, after the retro hellfest that was ‘i owe you nothing’, i really wanted to profile them here. despite still not being ‘studio recordings’ i think these tracks really give a good feel for the band and how great they are live. i’ve posted two tracks here to listen to but you can here all nine on their website and download (for, as they say on the tellybox, a limited time only) four of them from myspace.
first up is ‘creature feature’
this is my favourite of their songs and contains more innuendo than i would have previously thought it was possible to cram into one song.
ooh ah ah.[audio:beatstrip.mp3]
(as an aside, you might be interested to know that the image on this post is from the original broadway production of grease and features – believe it or not – a surprisingly cool looking barry bostwick as danny zuko!)
