Wild Daughter are the light and the dark, the push/pull, the tension, the release. On “Live at The Backstreet” – recorded on 13.ix.18 at infamous East London gentlemen’s club The Backstreet – they are captured live, in their element. Accompanied by newest members Jacob Shaw and Conrad Pack, founders James Jeanette and Stuart McKenzie conjure up sexual demons, inciting the audience almost into a ritualistic trance. Be warned…
Excellent cassette imprint The Tapeworm (Jay Glass Dubs, Mark Fell) drop this live album from James Jeanette and Stuart McKenzie’s Wild Daughter. The band’s follow-up to 2016 debut single Get Gone captures their live show in all its louche, scuzzy glory. Across the tape - which repeats in full on the second side - garage-rock, post-punk and fetish-rock combine in a manner that recalls everyone from The Stooges to Hunx And His Punx. The salubrious London gentlemen’s club in which Live At The Backstreet was recorded only adds to its air of deviancy.
