American band The Gutters are playing at Bar 42, Worthing from 8.00 pm tomorrow night (Thursday October 30th).
The Gutters play raw stripped down garage punk from Portland, Oregon, U.S of A. Their auditory maelstrom is like taking a time machine to London in the late ’70s, where every tinny punk had a band and everything was snarling and snotty.
But the Gutters‘ tongue-in-cheek playfulness cuts those spiky allusions with fun vignettes, as found on their recent release Should We Make a 7-Inch? 7-inch. Other hilariously punk entitlements, such as beginning the song Born in the Gutter with “one, two, f*** you!” hint more at the duo’s willingness to parade their love affair with the old guard than attempt to build upon it.
This is all a-okay; the band’s sewer serenades are a breath of fresh air, and at bite-sized intervals of roughly one to two minutes apiece, the Gutters are a fist-pumping hoot. Look out for their album on Tadpole Records too!
In support are Squadron Leaders and The Park.
Bar 42 is at 42 Marine Parade on Worthing seafront.
