In the world according to Zara, a good bass line can make up for many deficiencies. It’s one of my guilty little secrets. It’s the reason I always groove along to the Veronica Mars themesong, when I know perfectly well that the Dandy Warhols are soooo overplayed. Give me a good bassline and a lot of times I’m lulled into happiness.
This isn’t to say that the Victorian English Gentlemen’s Club has a lot to cover up. Their name irritates, since “Victorian” as an adjective basically implies “English.” Perhaps the only other country that could claim that nomenclature is India, since it was British-colonial during the Victorian period. And maybe some Brit-colonized African countries that I can’t think of right now. But I’ll stuff my inner nerd back into my head now.
VEGC is out of Cardiff, which as I recall is in Wales (though I could be wrong). They make solid, poppy music, with a fantastic bassline, played by a girl of course :D. It’s music to rock out to, with a lot of punk in it and shouting back and forth and whatnot. I’m not always following the lyrics, but I’m content to kind of groove along and ignore the lyrics for once in my life. Crazy! I know! What’re you gonna do.
VEGC will be releasing a self-titled album on Aug.28th.
