Those spiffingly cheeky punk tykes Faux Pas released a new single last week, it is an alternative acoustic version of one of their live favourites “Gorilla Man”. Front man Ru squeezes every bit of emotion he possibly can in a sublimely beautiful tune. This version will be a phones aloft gig and festival classic when live music returns as it surely will one day. What I love about Faux Pas is that they never rest on their laurels, they are always open to do something different, something inspiring as they have with this song.
This track and the rather splendid video that accompanies it keeps my faith that great music will not be killed off by COVID-19. With all the shit that is going on in the world music like this is a shelter from the madness and a light at the end of the tunnel! Faux Pas are on the long list of bands I want to see playing live again when all this is over!
