SEA LIONS / GOLDEN GRRRLS -SPLIT 7"
Oxnard, California's Sea Lions came over to the UK for the first time in July 2012 for Indietracks fest and embarked on a tour with London / Glasgow group Golden Grrrls. To commemorate the occasion they released a limited tour 7" which now sees a world wide release. Both bands contributed an original song and a cover version. Sea Lions take apart 'Nervous Breakdown' by Black Flag, turning it into a shambling nugget of shrill guitar versus Adrian Pillado's laconic vocal delivery and contributed 'On and Off' - as close to an anthem as Sea Lions get. Golden Grrrls tackle 'I Don't Want You Anyway' by kiwi group Look Blue Go Purple, remaining fairly faithful to the original with some added punk energy, while their original is a garage pop bullet in the form of 'Billy,' which sees Ruari MacLean take lead vocal to counter the female backing. 4 songs as good as any you're going to hear this year. A one time pressing of 600 copies. Hand stamped labels and comes with download code. A split release with Night School Records.
