Rickyfitts – Your Prophesied Demise

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.

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!

    since your doc have you found a job? how do you pay for all the gigs? x

    • Hey Sop[hie, yes I know do have a job, my first job infact I’ve only become employed this year, 30m something years un-employed but I work for an Outsider arts organisation called Art and Power! which is cool.
      With the gig side of things sometimes I get quite lucky in maybe knowing someone on the bill or sheer persistence as well as paying for a fair few, I dont have a particularly expensive life really! but I am addicted and I am sometimes my own demon!
