Nancy Vandal - Flogging A Dead Phoenix CD

Twenty years down the track from their last record, “seminal punk legends” (it says here) Nancy Vandal are back with another slab of fast, furious, quirky, madcat punky rock tunes that are heavy on the hooks and guitars, even if singing in tune is kinda optional.

Partly crowd funded via a Pozible campaign and recorded with ex-bassist Jay Whalley, who you’ll know better as Frenzal Rhomb’s singer, Flogging A Dead Phoenix is as much fun as playing a barrel full O monkeys with real monkeys after a 28 hour tequila binge – Fingering Chart, Hot Pants Nation, Still Got It, Desmond Manchild, We Don’t Want Your Fun, We Fucked This City On Rock And Roll – it’s all good value snotty nosed garage punk, overlaid with dirty, sleazy horns and an overriding ability to never, under pain of death, take themselves in the slightest bit seriously.

The proof is in the pudding so have a listen to the raucous drunken bash through Poison’s Nothing But A Good Time (rechristened Nowt Bar A Good Time for extra comedy irony value). It’s a brilliantly executed hot mess and what punk is all about, and bound to make them a drawcard on the big Soundwave stages early next year.
