BEACH ROAD HOTEL, BONDI – WEDNESDAY 7th DECEMBER 2011
I was going to say something about the bassist from The Deer Republic’s mad afro but lead singer from Fait Accompli Mr Ray, took the coolest hair/head ensemble to a whole other level. In saying this however, a more important and even more impressive aspect of this local tattooed clad three-piece is their music. It’s like a combination of old Queens of the Stone Age and The Jesus Lizard. The only bad feeling that swept over me during this set was the remorseful moment when I realized it took me 5 years to learn of their existence in Sydney. One of the many songs that really stood out was new single ‘No Fool’, which has this simple yet transfixing bass line, matched with a few spine tinglingly good guitar solos by Mr Ray himself, in between his own ultra cool and relaxed punk vocals.
