Straight Arrows - Don't Call My Name


No matter what type of musical medicine you prefer to ingest to get your kicks, It’s rare that you’ll beat a bravely measured dose of garage rock & roll, especially as a Saturday night in the depths of the city, and the moral tightrope that such activity forces us to walk, looms; it’s that feral, raw and often confrontational sound, evolved in the USA circa late 1950s, taken on by drug riddled rockers such as Kim Fowley, The Seeds et al throughout the 60s and immortalised in Nuggets compilations of the future for the benefit of us all, now.

So, it’s about now that we should introduce, in some kind of ironic defiance, the firebrand tune ‘Don’t Call My Name’ by Sydney outfit Straight Arrows, as the Far Out Track of the Day and, oh my, what a track it is!

Don’t Call My Name is extracted from the Straight Arrows latest barnstorming record Rising, released June 13th and recorded half at front man Owen’s house and the other half in his new, legitimate studio… check the rest of it out here, I can assure that you won’t be let down.

You London dwellers can catch this lot do their thing on August 29th at Power Lunches Arts Café and a few days later on August 31st at Bethnal Green Working Men’s club.
