By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 May 2010
Format: Audio CD
Peggy Sue are a quirky little trio of minstrels from Brighton.
'Fossils and Other Phantoms' is their debut album and with
very modest means but lots of honest energy they have managed to
deliver a distinctive and quite delightful listening experience.

Rosa Rex and Katy Klaw both sing, play guitar and hit things;
Olly Joyce (whose name I am more inclined to believe!) is the drummer.

In their management of melody, harmony and droll lyrical imagery
they put me in mind of The Roches in their early years from time
to time (I entreat you to explore their work too if you have not
already - especially their 1979 eponymous debut) but there is also
something quite unique and unusual about their style which, depite its
occasional bluesy accents, is quintessentially English to its very core.

There are twelve songs in the collection. Their structure largely
relies on fairly simple picked or strummed guitar motifs and subtle
vocal harmonies laid out over Mr Joyce's un-subtle but enthusiastic
(at times wildly so!) drumming. On 'She Called', for example, he
whips up a crashing, banging storm of cymbals and skins underneath
the otherwise fragile melody. The contrast is curiously satisfying!

'Matilda' is a lovely jazzy-come-folksy ditty which shows Ms Rex
and Ms Klaw's ability to weave and sustain a fine unison vocal line.

'Yo Mama' is about as close as Brighton gets to the blues.
The squeezebox brings a taste of sea shanty into the mix
and the energetically eccentric percussion made me laugh out loud!

'I Read It In The Paper' pushes the boat out in terms of complexity.

Peggy Sue, formerly known as Peggy Sue and the Pirates, are a Brighton based Indi/Folk band consisting of Rosa Slade, Katy Young and Olly Joyce, who's music is a meld of Indi, Blues, Folk and Rock.

"Fossils and Other Phantoms" is their debut album and one of high calibre content, with the girls excellent sweet harmonies and Olly's expressive show stopping percussion bringing the listener an album relaying stories of wrecked hearts and bruised minds.

I bought this album for two reasons:(1) I heard the last few seconds of one of the songs on the radio and thought it sounded pretty and (2) the band's name is the same as my trusty Ford Fiesta and therefore I had to own it. Considering the rather flaky purchasing rationale, I'm happy to say that this is the best impulse buy I've ever made. Peggy Sue sing gorgeous lilting harmonies over folksy guitars - their songs go from haunting to thumping and are hugely sing-alongable (for me, this is a VERY important quality). I haven't seen these guys live but I desperately want to; I suspect that they're awesome. Thoroughly recommended.

Everyone else who's reviewed this seems to love it but i found it a harsh experience.
The artwork on the album cover was what initially attracted me to the CD but I found the music itself to be equally as dark & desolate with melody being on the sparse side.
The two singers, Rosa & Katy, mostly spoke the songs and their dueting was often (although not always) discordant with one shouting over the top of the other.
I suppose it would be called off kilter or quirky but although it's good to make someone else's song your own their annihilation of 'green grow the rushes' was a step too far for me... but then again, as it seems, i appear to be in the minority?

I've been a fan of peggy sue from when they were peggy sue and the pirates to peggy sue and the pictures to simply peggy sue and although their music has adapted and evolved it has the same earthy elements that attracted me to their music in the first place. This is an excellent album with some really beautiful and emotional songs aswell as some really catchy ones. Definatly reccomened if you like a mix of country and the blues with a modern addition and a mix of instruments. If you can get hold of some of their other songs (like phone song, super man, spare parts) I recommend them too.
