Crowd Review for Hoochie Coochie Debut EP B-Side

Many thanks for the fantastic reviews for Hoochie Coochie from Crowd Review - Reverbnation.com “This song starts out with a really interesting, fast beat. A quick drum and guitar repetition. The speed of the music increases as the track continues. There's a great sense of movement, of progressing forward. The instrumental reminds me of a chase scene or running scene during a film or movie. The vocals come in very late in the song, almost unexpected. The singer has a deep voice though, and almost as much energy as the music.” “The start of the song the drums and guitar had my head banging. Together they sound amazing. I just want to keep head banging and im not a rocker chick at all forreal. The artist voice didn't really fit the song, kind of threw me off a little. But I liked the lyrics. I think a lot of people can relate to the devil inside others.” “That fuzzy hard bass guitar is so smooth slong with he .fuzzed out guitar. The drums are so smooth but yet ao hard at the same time. And finally the vocals. They are so smooth and original. Smooth like butter but hard like brick” “Very catchy, I started bobbing my head when the drumming started. I don't even think my guitar playing friend could move his fingers that fast. A very rock like voice, from a singer back in the 60's 70's. I would shimmy to this song, very poppin'. Cool, is that a harmonica, kick butt.” “From the start, the song had its own characteristic to stand out. It was very inventive and intriguing. When the tempo picked up 50 seconds into it, it created another sense of excitement. The overall sound was a great happiness to sing along if a listener knew the words to this song. I like how the whistling also played a fact in the song's harmonics. It went rhythmically with the guitar and drums. The singer's voice was on key and brought an amazing deep, but not too deep, tone to add to the song. The lyrics did seem odd after listening to the song. All I got was "he knows your moves". They also seemed to not go with the rhythm of the song except for that when that phrase was played. Averaging with the awesome beat of the music but the poor lyrics, since I would think one could come up with better lyrics or possibly a new topic, the song gets a solid rating of a 6.” “Great head banging stuff. The vocals need to come in earlier on in the song. A change in tempo would have been a nice surprise, but overall song was upbeating and energetic. Like a fast pace race.”

Plucky Purcell at The Rabbit Hole Stage Glastonbury Festival 2013

Glastonbury Festival 2013 Review

"I may have been short sighted, half deaf in one ear, extremely tired and slightly discombobulated but, I can still spot a great band when they punch me in the face!

Seeing Plucky Purcell groove the legendary Rabbit Hole at Glasto 2013 was an absolute delight. Was it 5,6,7 or 8 super grooving songs in a row, don’t ask me because I can’t count when I’m dancing.

During the briefest of gaps in the musical onslaught, the most worthy dancers in the huge crowd were provided with their very own fake moustaches to wear. This was in tribute to lead singer and bass player Spencer. His talent and energy for performing easily equals his fashionable facial fuzz!

Backed by the coolest, tightest drummer, the band also included rich guitars riffs and blazing harmonicas.

This soul and funky foursome rocked the tent with their non-stop wall of delightful sounds for a painfully energetic 90 minute slot. And yet everyone was still left wanting more. Why? Because they were plainly, shiningly, solid.

I highly recommend you make the time to see Plucky Purcell. Especially when discombobulated" - Ian Paradine, Rabbit Hole Stage
