Beat Seeking Missiles - Break My Fall



This artice also appears on www.soundsxp.com



Beat Seeking Missiles are something of a garage supergroup featuring veterans Sir Bald Diddley and Kid Wig of The Wig Outs alongside Bruce Brand of Thee Headcoats and former Supergrass bass player Mick Quinn.  In a world with no shortage of raw rock 'n' roll revivalists, the pedigree here certainly shows. Rather than pastiche, BSM sound bracingly modern despite their retro stylings, with crisp, clean, fresh production. The spiky 'Break My Fall' uses incisive drumming and Beatlesque harmonies to great effect, and there's a fantastic soaring chorus to boot. Flip side 'Dr. Strangelove' is all jagged riffs and stuttering beats with a distorted guitar solo which brings a slightly psychedelic feel to the mix, in a similar vein to early Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd. This is garage rock 'n' roll as it should be; these missiles have definitely hit their target.
