Review and Tour Notice: The Gooch Palms - Novo's
From the Oversight Committee of the Executive Members of the Editorial Board of WYMA: We think that every adult in America should follow the above recommendations. We also believe that everyone else in America should see The Gooch Palms. It is as if The Ramones, The Clash, FIDLAR, Cool Ghouls, and a soulful, well-in-their-cups doo wop group from Brooklyn were all put in a blender (painful, I know, but it is for art) and poured out as an efficient, exuberant party machine. And let there be no misunderstanding -- this duo seems to be having so much fun that I don't understand how their audience could not have fun. This is rock music for the sweaty, beer-soaked masses. In other words, it is rock music for us! The remaining dates on their US tour are listed below.
The Gooch Palms are Leroy Macqueen (guitar and vocals) and Kat Friend (drums) from Newcastle, Australia. The initial pressing for their LP, Novo',s sold out, but I understand that another pressing is in the works. You may also be able to source it digitally.
