Pottery....No. 1

A bit like Body Type, Pottery — who should play in Stoke as soon as possible — have drums/bass driving the songs along, but it’s more interesting. They’re the kind of band who’d go down well at the Blue Dot festival — a strong dance groove coupled with psychedelia. Although it’s not particularly innovative, we’ve been enjoying it.
The EP kicks off with Smooth Operator, tom toms and bass leading the way in a psychedelic groove. The vocals are most unexpected: after the twangy guitar licks and stoner pounding you get Orange Juice era Edwyn Collins, before the music goes up a gear and becomes the theme for a Thunderbirds disco as Lady Penelope jives in a trendy Carnaby Street disco.
