45 ADAPTERS • QUITTY AND THE DON'TS
The Above are a rock'n'roll group hailing from Brooklyn, New York. Some folks might call them a garage band... others might describe their sound as rhythm and blues... but regardless of how they are categorized, it is undeniable that their music compels some serious dancing. With tube amps screamin', drum kits stompin', and vocal harmonies wailin', these ambassadors of freakbeat are making good in the city where rock'n'roll will never die.
The 45 Adapters sound like a truck full of Cock Sparrer records crashing into a truck full of Otis Redding records, and they don't trust anyone who doesn't dance.
Inspired by both the classic mod sound of early Kinks and the gritty revivalism of Billy Childish and Thee Headcoatees, Quitty And The Don'ts play urgent soulful garage-pop with dispassionate lyrics, driven by angular beats, layers of moody organ, and stabbing guitar lines.
