Rock Kicks (download single)
Released November 2010
"Simple, boisterous and happy to smudge its lipstick all over your mirror before it exits stage left, it's all day-glo fun on the outside, but when Lucy Joplin sings stuff like “you say it’s easy, I don’t think anything’s easy/ clean clothes, made up and brushed hair/ I can make it here, I can make it anywhere” you instantly know that her junior Kim Deal stance has been achieved by repeated attendance at the school of hard knocks rather than through affectation.
It’s a pleasant change to hear a couple of half-decent remixes making up the numbers too. The ‘Brigitte Bravadot’ mix (very funny) comes from producer/ Death In Vegas collaborator Ian Button and it buffs ‘Rock Kicks’ up for some shiny, electronica-fuelled dance floor action. When you’ve danced your ass off, the ‘Oculus III’ mix – from Sergeant Buzfuz’s Joe Buzfuz – then brings you the opiated, Sunday morning come-down. Long on atmosphere and intelligence, it’s an effective way to wrap up a pretty cool EP." (Whisperin And Hollerin)
