The Parkinsons
A Long Way To Nowhere (Fierce Panda)

By: Cam Lindsay

Though it's been the US and Sweden that have started the great rock 'n' roll revolution, London, England's The Parkinsons have something to say about who rules the roost. Their debut album, a mini one entitled A Long Way To Nowhere is the fiercest punk rock out of Britain since the Sex Pistols. Notorious for their high energy, riot-inducing gigs, this four-piece deliver the goods on this seven-track recording. Produced by Ben Lurie and Jim Reid formerly of The Jesus & Mary Chain, two men known for their share of rock 'n' roll chaos, A Long Way To Nowhere is fast, furious and troublesome led by the sneering vocals of Al Zheimer and the vintage riffs of the aptly named guitarist Victor Torpedo. Songs like "Universe" and "Primitive" are anthems for speed-freaks with blistering levels of cheeky malevolence, while "Nothing To Lose" is classic punk rock attitude. Proceed with caution when listening to The Parkinsons because otherwise, someone might lose an ear.
