Sarandon Kills Twee Pop On Joe’s Record

“Joe’s Record” is a song from an album by a band called Sarandon, called “Kill Twee Pop!” The music is spastic and quirky. It pleases me. And even with everything that’s arty and odd about this track, somehow the handclap business makes it sound inescapably pop. Peculiar. Splendid.

Sarandon – “Spike Milligan’s Tape Recorder”

Truly some of the freshest and funniest indie angst-y rock happening right now is coming from an odd little band out of the UK called Sarandon. Named after the actress? Due to unsettled memories of her quivering voice and half undressed body in the Rocky Horror Picture Show? One can only speculate. But listen, do, to their ferocious rendering of The Membranes‘ post punk classic (yes dears, there is such a thing now), “Spike Milligan’s Tape Recorder.” This is, I’m afraid, about as hip as you can possibly get with guitars and drums in 2009. Repeated listens may cause spontaneous ironic mustaches. What’s the drummer eating for breakfast, I wonder? Excellent track.
