GIL DE RAY release single: PENNY SUICIDE: 27th NOVEMBER
Available on Bandcamp
Hitting hard from the Gideon Coe played INCANTATIONS single last month (VL001), PENNY SUICIDE goes Stooges on the Paradise Papers – politically charged, with a brave and blinding scowl and spit not seen since Johnny Rotten. Fast, glorious – showcasing the Suicide energy of their live performances.
“No-one is saying anything about what is really going on in this country – I am the only one with the balls to say anything in the sterile world of music.” GIL DE RAY
GIL DE RAY are named after Glaswegian-born, South London-based singer, Gil (who in past lives was signed by John Niven on Independiente). He is joined by Mikey Buckley (Desert Ships) on guitar, Jody Moroney on drums, Dr. Paco on bass.
“GIL DE RAY are Johnny Thunders meets old school indie Primal Scream, via the balearics.” COLD LIPS
