Pip Blom ‘School’ Us On How Rock Should Sound
Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands
FFO: Gurr, Black Honey
Label: Nice Swan Records
With all the dirtiness and grime of the Strokes, Dutch rockers Pip Blom share a sub-two minute stormer. ‘School’ is all screaming guitars, punk noise and foot stamping drums, but at the same time it is a well balanced affair and Pip’s vocals are not lost in the mix. Some songs request your attention, but this one demands it; within the first few seconds you’re sonically slapped round the face, and by the second verse you’re hooked.
