Holy Moley! How did this one pass under my radar!? Apparently Nick "Diamonds" Thorburn and Jamie "J'aime Tambour" Thompson (uh ... Islands ... uh ... the Unicorns) have re-united to form Juiced Elfers. Weird name, yes, but killer tunes.
I've only heard three live songs so far, one of which sounds like it was recorded with one of those "spy" pen microphones or something. The band just played at CMJ the other night, so that's how I got wind of this new side project. Wow wow wow. The group plays 60s rockabilly, dance-y tunes (i.e. the cover of the Troggs' "With A Girl Like You").
Okay, grab the below tracks ... I'll be listening to the complete Unicorns discography for the rest of the weekend. Expect no posts from me.
