Meet TV Crime!
I must salute Mick Fletcher for his personal recommendation on TV Crime out of Nottingham, UK. It was immediately apparent to me why Mick thought I'd like this band. Consequently, I imagine many of you will dig TV Crime as well! While I've heard lots of bands in recent years that are a combination of garage punk and power pop, most of them lean more towards the latter. TV Crime, on the other hand, is truly the best of both worlds. The band's sound is punchy and rough around the edges, yet totally melodic and crackling with energy. A debut single called "Hooligans" is now available from TV Crime's Bandcamp, and both songs are total bangers. If the title track doesn't get your toes tapping and your head bobbing, you might want to check yourself for a pulse! If you're craving some thumping poppy garage punk along the lines of a rawer Marked Men, ya gotta check out TV Crime! Send your thank-you notes to Mick!
