Thee Vicars- Psychotic Beat CD. Bands all over the world have been bashing out garage rock sounds long enough that simply playing the old changes fast, loud, and dirty doesn't set anyone apart anymore, so a band in the 21st century garage game needs something to set themselves apart from the pack. Thee Vicars, hailing from the otherwise unremarkable British community of Bury St. Edmunds, seem to be aiming for the title of most intense Garage combo on Earth on their second LP, ‘Psychotic Beat’. Bassist and lead vocalist Mike Whittaker sounds unusually wired within the boundaries of the genre and his bandmates hit hard and attack the tunes with an above-average velocity that sounds like a cross between the Reatards and Billy Childish with a little bit of Mummies budget rock bliss thrown into the mix. Import from the UK.
