Neutrals - Kebab Disco (Dandy Boy / Emotional Response) Cassette
“Kebab Disco” is the debut album from Bay Area trio Neutrals. The group channels a wide range of 70s and 80s punk, post-punk, and indie pop influences.
The band describe the first side of the album as “the art school suite”: the action kicks off in Glasgow, Scotland, with tales of artistic jealousy, petty theft, late night psychedelic excursions, burgeoning romance, and a betrayal. By the beginning of side B, the protagonist has emigrated to the perceived mecca of San Francisco, only to be met with ghosts of the past, a shifting demographic, and a self-satisfied post-counterculture consumerist class. While not strictly autobiographical, this mirrors the personal experience of Scottish singer/guitarist Allan McNaughton.
