The Honey Pies

I really, really like this band. From Adelaide. They have 2 albums. If you want an introduction try “Girl”. They have other clips – and one that is DEFS “NSFW”. But it is amazing! Anyway here is “Girl” and I love the Apple “waiting-wheel” for the chorus. GENIUS.

They are so rich in sounds, so diverse, so natural. I cannot help but thinking they have that irreverence, that “element of crap”, that freshness, and that overwhelming sense that these kids up there on stage – are just like you, only transformed into rockstars. They’re just “having a go”. Just writing shitty, personal songs – pilfered from a wide range of crazy influences – and putting it down without really worrying if anyone liked them.  You might even tag them with that Q word. The one Custard got labelled with. Yep, “QUIRKY”. It was a bit passe back in the 90s, a bit of an albatross around a band’s neck – but I have said it. I can’t take it back now.

This is their blog:

Can i just say – they are an amazingly SEXY band too!
