TUNE Evans The Death - Suitcase Jimmy
July 1 impact
Lead-off track from the London group's new album 'Vanilla', which Uncut have already described as a “dense and a courageous storm of an album, revved-up and snarling fractious thrilling pop”. 'Suitcase Jimmy' definitely meets that plaudit, a semi-improvised portrait of a fictional down-at-heel actor built around a Wilko Johnson-ish guitar part. The energy is infectious but chaotic and no way does it collapse under its own weight of ambition. The band will begin a UK tour in July, but can be caught initially playing an instore at Rough Trade East in London on June 14.
