After a summer taking their notorious concert party around the UK to the usual heavy dosage of acclaim and noise complaints by the neighbours, The Tuesday Club are breaking out the tea and tunes with the release of new EP Lady Gargar. The third in of a set of 4 EPs eventually uniting for the band’s next 4 x EP Box Set album, the ‘Body’ section of the eventual full-length brings three songs drenched in the recognisable Tuesday Club sound and devilry but as is always the way finding just that little more mischievous invention to refresh and excite.
Still looking and endearing like rejects from the Home Guard, men and woman who most likely would have been thrown out for goosing the vicar and flattening haystacks in the arms of land girls, The Tuesday Club just get more essential and addictive with every release, Lady Gargar as an EP and new single no exception. The successor to the My Consciousness EP out last October and the Forbidden Kiss EP of June this year, Lady Gargar romps and stomps like a Canadian/US soldier providing illicit booty in the Blitz, seducing and swaying with virulent punk ‘n’ roll pop temptation.
The EP opens with its title track, the Walmington-on-Sea septet bringing Lady Gargar into view on a lone scrub of guitar and soon after, the distinctive vocal devilment of Andreas Vanderbraindrain and The Minx. Like Dirk Wears White Sox Adam and The Ants colluding with Oingo Boingo era Danny Elfman, the track slips through ears with thick flirtatious hooks and a broadly smiling swagger. Within this festivity, the keys of Rogerio Marauder bloom with melodic warmth as the beats of Titti Bartelski jab and lead an inescapable incitement on feet and hips. Everything about the song is magnetic, the guitars of Dave Worm and J Rod spewing catchy riffs and grooves as freely as the bass of The Beautiful Wolf wanders through it all in its own individual way.
Scars are Superstars steps up next, straight away laying down bait of jagged riffs and punchy beats as the rest of the band add their infectious spices with increasingly riveting success. Weaving in new wave and power pop enterprise into its relentlessly keen energy and gait, the song bounds along like a teenager in the heat of summer and puberty; grinning with sparkling hooks and the ever becoming vocal union of Vanderbraindrain’s spiv like devilment and The Minx’s Amazonian lure.
Resistance (Makes the Heart Grown Fonder) completes the line-up upon the EP, its personal instant magnetism the perfect coaxing into an even stronger contagion of inimitable temptation. More a canter than its predecessors, the song ambles along with a Radio Stars meets Wreckless Eric enticing, at times a whiff of Ten Pole Tudor also showing its scent, simply bewitching at all times as it incites the body to use every angle at the hips disposal for a gentle but determined swing.
Recent releases have shown The Tuesday Club on a trend of being more and more creatively captivating with the Lady Gargar EP their new pinnacle in the defence of our pleasures and souls. Roll on EP 4 is all that is left to say.
