Last night Portsmouth duo and soon to be part Bristol residents Rickyfitts made their Bristol debut at the Louisiana. Joining the mass ranks of guitar drums duo’s Rickyfitts very much feel as if they have come from the same loin clothes as the likes of Winnabago Deal, the much forgotten about Oxfordshire band who tore holes in peoples ears the best part of a decade ago. Their energy was on stage was one of flamboyance mixed together with sonic booms.
Your Prophesied Demise draws on moments of Melvins sounding guitars and Eighties Matchbox B-line Disaster styled screams. There was a raw fuzz about them that I found to be really exciting and that they played with real enthusiasm.
Give them a bit of times but I think that they could find themselves really at home with the Howling Owl or Stolen Bodies families, mixing sludge with heavy grinding psych rock, or even Acid rock.
