Derek Bahn Suedehead brings their Carnaby style to Slidebar in Fullerton Saturday, April 6.
Suedehead belts out get-happy songs that swing, despite the lyrics being more lovelorn than jubilant. The swirling, soulful uptempo tunes from the brain of British ex-pat Davey Warsop are shaped by influences like the Jam and Elvis Costello.The Orange County band's new single "Lying in Bed" is sure to sway some sympathetic foot shuffling.
With a nod to songwriting heroes like Holland-Dozier-Holland, responsible for Motown classics for the Supremes, the Four Tops and a gazillion others, Warsop pens modern soul for a new generation. But that's not to say Suedehead members are abandoning their roots. Made up of former members of Beat Union, The Distraction, TSOL, The Aggrolites and Hepcat, in homage the band added a soulified version of Fugazi's "Waiting Room" as the single's B-side.
