"Neil Mach reviews The Stilts"

These lads are on an urgent mission to bring rock (tinted with punk and ska) to the tired London masses whose jaded ears and unenlightened minds are not used to the raw and organic stilts-sounds that recall those early days of rock n Roll. Take, for example, "Stalker" with its familiar guitar riff reminiscent of 'Fountains of Wayne'. Twinkling lead guitar follows the verse right up 'till the fulfilling chorus when Mr Fred sings out, "I know your name, I know your name". The song is about a sexy cyber-spy 'a chat-room chaser' who takes so much more than the advantage. The cheerful beat and the familiar tune is a breeze to pick up and it is guaranteed that you will be humming it as you skip to the shops tomorrow. The song is contemporary enough to be a modern fable that will ring true in the hearts of real urban men everywhere.

"Sunshine Breaks" is my favourite 'Stilts' song with a huge swoopy bass thing and thick slabs of shoegazing fuzz. The verse sounds like very early Bowie - perhaps something from the 'Man Who Sold the World' album. There is also a healthy dollop of early 'Dire Straits' and old-fashioned 'Chili' in there too. This is a bright and versatile number and could easily make your day- if not your week… Other tunes from the song-book include 'Left for Dead' with a mid-sixties feel and attractive hooks.

The Stilts are a four-piece alternative rock outfit from West London. Favouring raw, organic sounds over synthesized or synthetic effects, their catchy songs easily translate to the live stage and are performed in the manner in which they are recorded: amped up and belted out with gusto.

As a hard working band, The Stilts have produced a range of high quality demos over the past three years, honing their sound and developing their live show. They have earned a reputation amongst fans for delivering a tight, rocking set whilst impressing promoters with an enthusiastic and loyal fan base that can be relied upon to attend gigs regularly.

To date they are self-managed and self-financing, having taken the time to produce quality work and gain a good breadth of live experience. Talented and confident, The Stilts are now ready to reach out to a wider audience, and are promoting their single 'Eighty Eight' which is a taster of their forthcoming album to be released in 2010.
