The Pheromoans 'It Still Rankles'
The Pheromoans celebrated the release of new album 'It Still Rankles' in fine style last weekend at Ryan's Bar (with profits going towards Letha Melchior Rodman Cancer Fund).
With a run of singles on Sweet Rot, Savoury Days and Night People it was the label that put out their first 7" in 2009 that does the honors releasing Pheromoans debut full length. Convulsive Records (Animals & Men, Dan Melchior) have said of 'It Still Rankles' - "One of the first truly great albums of the decade", I mean to employ no sort of hyperbole when I say I agree. At the forefront of UK's DIY scene right now, The Pheromoans chew up 40 years of music and spit out two to three minute shambolic Punk masterpieces. Fans of Messthetics will enjoy this band as The Pheromoans have a gift for wrapping up all of the best bits of those compilations while leaving their very own distinct mark on the songs. Highlights 'Soft Targets', 'Monged on Valium' and 'Bad Dandelion'.
If you couldn't make it to Ryan's Bar never fear! The Pheromoans are playing with Tyvek in March right here in London, don't miss out on seeing one of the most exciting bands in the UK today.
