Track of the Day – PIT PONY – Opportunity Went


Definitely my favourite band from Newcastle, probably my favourite band from the North of England. Pit Pony are back with another loud, raw, loud single. Did I mention it was loud? Yeah, it’s loud.

If you’ve been paying attention I’ve picked their songs for track of the day a few times now. ‘Dutch Courage‘ earlier this year, and still my personal favourite, ‘Osaka‘ last year. They’re a great band. I previously compared lead singer Jackie Purvis to Siouxsie Sioux and Debbie Harry, but here she sounds like a demented Grace Slick. This is full on, no holds barred, distorted garage rock of the highest order. It’s The Stooges filtered through the more contemporary lens of Bitch Falcon and Thee MVPs. Touches of The Coathangers in there too it seems to me. It’s pretty full on anyway, would probably make your ears bleed a little bit live. Lovely stuff.
