Next Big Thing: Get Back Guinozzi!

Get Back Guinozzi!’s exclamative sound is so tough to describe that their label invented a whole new term to describe it (or at least I’ve never heard of it). They call it “quirky, outsider pop.” The quirky I totally get. A half-French, half-London duo with new wave-soaked influences (Talking Heads, The B-52’s, The Specials) with the sonic chaos of The Go! Team (with less shouting and more Yoko Ono style murmuring) – I get this feeling John Waters would love them. Check out their MySpace page for a streaming version of their current single “Low Files Tropical” (riiiight), backed with their cover take on “Police and Thieves” (download below). Wild, man.
