Animal House - No Mama

1.    Who?

Animal House are a  garage rock band from Brighton, England (by way of Brisbane, Australia). They have been around for three or four years now and have a handful of singles. No Mama (May'18) is the lead single from their as yet unreleased E.P. Premium Mediocre. 

2. What?

No Mama veers a little closer to their sixties garage rock sound than the 2000's indie rock sound they are also influenced by. It's a great amalgamation of feel good garage rock that bubbles along and doesn't take itself to seriously while yet speaking to universal truths.

3. Who do Animal House sound like?

Hey Geronimo, The Bay Rays, and The Lulu Raes.

4. What have the press said about No Mama?

“A joyfully fun garage-pop number” – The Line Of Best Fit. 

“Rather wryly joyous” – Brighton’s Finest.

“Saw you guys in Paris a few years ago. Keep jammin’ good sirs” – YouTube Comments. 

5. Which bands have influenced Animal House?
The Strokes, Kings of Leon, and Arctic Monkeys.

6. Why should I listen to No Mama?
Because you like sunshiny Australian indie pop rock. Because you like sixties garage.

7. Do they have any more bangers?
Oh yes. Figure It Out and Domino are the ones you want.

8. Anything to add?
Yeah English Girls and Sour are cracking too.

Jeff Rosenstock is a punk rock legend who has fronted ska/punk band The Arrogant Sons of Bitches and indie rock band Kudrow. He also does his solo thing and Yr Throat is an album track from his third solo album POST (2018). Jeff Rosenstock's music has been compared to Titus Andronicus, The Ramones and PUP. POST met with universal acclaim for it's punk songs with singalong choruses and vitriol. Yr Throat is a perfect example.
“What’s the point of having a voice,
If it gets stuck inside your throat”
