Former drummer of the indispensable Comet Gain, founder of Kicker and my beloved The Soft City, Phil Sutton created his latest music project after his former band went on hiatus in late 2011. Fronting a band for the first time (guitars and lead vocals), he has assembled a flamboyant cast around him, first a quintet, with members of Soft City, Crystal Stilts and Knight School, releasing a self-titled debut EP in May 2012, and later on as a quartet, with whom he has now delivered first LP ‘Before There Were Pictures’. A pop treaty in only 30 minutes, echoing Flying Nun and jangle-pop myths, here’s a classic penned in the age of ephemeral hypes. – Raül Jiménez, Bloodbuzzed.
