Barberos – Les Noisettes

So, for whatever reason, the old two-drum-kits-and-a-synth lineup isn’t one that’s particularly in vogue at the moment. Nor, for that matter, are we likely to see too many modern beat combos thrashing said instruments whilst clad in skin tight spandex onesies. Thankfully Liverpool’s Barberos have stepped forward to plug both gaps.

I caught them at an all dayer in Manchester last summer and was blown away, both by their virtuoso Lightning Bolt-isms and by the unforgiving cut of their body suits. It was mostly the virtuoso bit though, and to be honest it’s a little facile simply to compare them to Lightning Bolt because there’s more to them than that, much of which is beautifully evidenced below. The track is, as yet, unmixed, which promises much for their imminent EP , so if you like what you hear then go and see them live because they will tear you a new arsehole. For cereal.
