Lux Lisbon - Get Some Scars EP

Get Some Scars EP (Special Edition) cover art

So here we are, our second musical stop of the day - and another blinder, I do swear 'pon the life of my pet tea bag, Brian.

I've been promising Lux Lisbon I would write about them for a while and today I finally am - and very pleased to be doing so, too.

First of all, as per usual, the necessaries.

You can listen to them here:

shop.luxlisbon.com/album/get-some-scars-ep-special-edition

You can visit their website here:

luxlisbon.com/

You can home in on them Twitter style, here:

twitter.com/LuxLisbon_Rock

Or you can delve into their world of Facebookz here:

facebook.com/luxlisbonmusic

Now then, first of all - it's important to point out that the "Get Some Scars" EP I'm featuring here today is a free download - if you clicketh the first link, or visit their website, you'll be able to listen and attach the said music to whatever device you jolly well like (I don't know whether it will work on your Kenwood Chef, but you never know...)

So once you've downloaded, you'll also need to have a listen/look at - for me - what is the standout track of the collection - "Bullingdon Club"


Already described as the "best power pop song of the last five years" by Sid Griffin, this basically, has it all. It's opening riff is excellently catchy, it's fast paced, it feels like it should have been out at the height of Britpop (and would have fitted in awesomely well) and actually, given that I'm listening to it after the Election-that-never-was, it feels all the more wrought with tension.

Of course, this isn't the whole reason you need the EP in your collection. Other superb tracks on the EP are "Demons You Show" (triffic bass) and "Memento Mori", it's chippy, powerful and has brilliant harmonies. 

Lux Lisbon have been a shamefully late discovery for me, it's not too late for you to welcome them into your lives either. Do eet!
