Escape from MySpace #25: Oh! Gunquit

Escape from MySpace
Want to get out of the hell called MySpace? You can't. The posts are still up though. The section as such is closed.

Neo-surf rockers Oh! Gunquit are a quartet from London who bring back the sex of the B=52s and The Cramps. They have a four track demo that sounds almost finished, although they could bring the trumpet and saxophone bit more to the front.

They have the fast-paced 4/4 rhythm down, added just enough echo to the vocals and the reverb on the guitar is definitely old-school.

Oh! Gunquit:
Wanda Smacksome: vocals, trumpet
Manchine: guitar, vocals
Sam Bam Leadfoot: drums
Dr Zoom: saxophone

MP3: Oh! Gunquit - Cherry Jam
