Beverley Kills Demo CDR – Boxer Instigator

August 20, 2009

CDR Demo review by Glen ugly Naughty (GuN)
AutoFactCheck Beta 1a: ON

2 insure 4 less audio interference noise plus new & improved wide dynamic sounds, Beverley Kills have remastered their 2 song demo of All girl, All Grunge, Beverley-Kills-MontageTotal riot available on CDR. Life on the Dole 4 these hot United Kingdom Cambridge birds produce two original songs that ride the crest of indie pop, yet simulcast shreds of Anarchy Vanguard; that first badge & shield on the frontline fringe defence against the second coming of  another Thatcher leader of Great Britain.

Swavoski swan clear,  as if foretold by the oracle Celeste Green Tea leaves, it’s Anarchy my friends & it’s Marathon music “War of the Worlds” spirit sparks philosophy bites of reason; even George Berkeley could not deny this material! A Filler 2 end the creative void (an empty moon size crator once occupied by the mighty John Peel R.I.P) of new music creation rings miracles in your ears as if hit on the head with an Osh Shovel. Wot’s that noise in my head (askmark)

Both songs on the punk rock demo are great. The first song on the disk called Your Legacy is smooth sailing on A rough all terrian rocky road track, a reliable ride full of bounce in addition 2 the rhythmatic cascade of grungy guitar riffs, drums, bass plus a chick filla sexy vox. It’s A reminder 4 fans that the new age calendar has begun & the count down  2 revolution ticks like the second hands on a lethal clock bomb.

Winchester Riots, song #2 is bout a bout @ the Portland Arms pub in Cambridge that the local folks call the Winchester. In Accord with my best undertaking to decypher the mind bender puzzle behind the chaos, Georgie Pie, lead singer of BK, was drinking Taunton Dry Blackthorn Cider @ the zen garden when she saw through the corner of her eyes A mirror reflector of her X kiss & embrace Harley Ryder a few times. Yuk! As the landlord did Shamwow down her round table her focus was first calm…complete control…slipery slope…THEN… A SEA STORM OF RAGE!

Conflict took stage & panic among the punters spreads like cancer. Kreeang! Now like a full blown AIDS infected riot, back slaps, quick jabs, Slap Chops, pop ups, glancing blows, K.O’s, Bruce Lee death punches, Karate chops & Judo throws test the heavy metal of law enforcement who initailly stand alone butt finaly radio backup reinfocement according to standard police protocol. Dead Air Radio. The incident infamously becomes the ultimate fighting challenge & dubbed The Winchester Riots as the riot squad Keystone Coppers arrive quick smart driving Panda’s & Paddy wagons.

As car alarms & auto security devices bell loud on outside roads,  A warning shot fire barage of non lethal beanie babies aim staight into the congregation & dispurse the dazed & confused mob. Those who agitate futher are handcuffed, booked, and a date set 2 stand before a judge scratch on faces & all. 

The artwork 4 the CDR demo is great. I’ve this mad De Ja Vu feeling on the back of my mind that i’ve seen this image before. A ladies head smoking Camel cigarettes. It suspcially looks like some Quit Smoking fags advertisement i’ve read in MRR, Rolling Stone, Billboard or NME only altered slightly using Adobe Photoshop CS4 upgrade. Well, most peeps say i’m paranoid bout stuff anyhow butt sum folks think i’m a regular California Psychic.

Nuff said, this demo is the LalaPalooza of The Great Escape; an expedition to Redding might bee on the Horizon.

The Beverley Kills are Georgie, lead VOX; Kate, Guitar & backing VOX; Elisa, bass & backing VOX; & Juliette, drums & it’s worth to buy CDR copies from them to add 2 your music collection. A few quid from myspace
