(I believe the lower / upper case in the name is intentional.)
London-based Darling BOY has played just two short tours of Germany and a few ‘home’ shows, including the iconic 100 Club venue in home city. Even so, he already has the likes of Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), Mark Ellen (TV / Radio Presenter), Andy Partridge (XTC) TV Smith (The Adverts) and Alan McGhee (yup, THAT Alan McGhee) all talking about him in favourable and encouraging tones.
The four-track ‘Air Conditioned Gypsy‘ EP is from what I can make out, his first formal first release, and with the current fad for singer-songwriter types showing no immediate sign of abating, there is definitely room at the top table for another – this time one with a bit of ‘attitude’ to their performance.
(‘Air Conditioned Gypsy’ is released through Very Decent Music on 4th March 2013)
(I’ll have a stream of the EP posted here shortly.)
