Fergus & Geronimo

Fergus & Geronimo, or Andrew Savage and Jason Kelly as they’re known to their parole officers mothers, raise the roof off garage rock with uptown soul drive and powerfully melodic psychedelia.

They have in three 45s this year done not just more than most bands ever accomplish but have done it with such gleeful abandon that even the surliest muso would be disarmed by their infectious charm and full-throttle attack.

This live performance of their Woodsist single Harder Than It’s Ever Been is the distillation of punk frenzy, r&b groove and pop perfection in 90 seconds. They are quite rightly fast becoming everybody’s new favourite band.

Thanks to the reliable Finest Kiss for steering me in the direction of this Texan duo.
