St Pierre Snake Invasion – Last Words Of A Bent Cop

One of Bristol’s best kept secrets are a band that have been gaining a pretty fierce live reputation The St Pierre Snake Invasion, a band who pretty much specialise in writing songs politically incorrect song titles and hilariously sarcastic song lyrics.  A band who happily fall somewhere between the boundaries Mclusky and Pulled Apart By Horses, or the tasteful or the tasteless. Trust me they have got a song that they dedicate to the loving memory of Micheal Hutchins and David Caradine called Hey Kids, Do The Choke Stroke And their take on Saville cover Sex Dungeons And Dragons. No subject is really too far a cry for these guys.

So Last Words Of A Bent Cop see’s the band take a quite frankly hilarious slur on the music industry, the media around it and most importantly of all Razorlight.  The synical sarcasm is something that very few will ever delve into, largely because of the fear of loosing any sense credibility, not that this ever really bothered The St Pierre Snake Invasion as they gleefully sing out I Wish I Was As Good As Razorlight.

It does blast of early Mclusky especially Light Sabre Cocking Sucking Blues you can pretty much hear it in the guitars. Also these guys remind me of a couple of bands that used to do the rounds in Bristol a couple of years ago, 3HoestwoMexicansandaTinofSpanners and Ivory Springer and listening to the St Pierre does sometimes make me long for the return of those bands, just so the kids could hear them.

But St Pierre say things that many will be too scared to say, or put into a comical context. anyway Last Words Of Bent Cop is taken from their debut ep which is out next week. Go and dig it!

About bigjeffbristol

I am someone from Bristol in England who is deeply obsessed with live music! its pretty much like an OCD styled obsession that means pretty much every night I am out. I like being down the fron for shows, because then I can feel the music pulsing through me and I am not going to lie to you, I like to dance a lot. Which can make me at times incredibly annoying because of being 6ft4 tall with blonde curly locks so I am the Thoroughly Annoying Blonde!. and I like to preach my geeky musical inertia to people!
