Little Vegas and The Fuzz Parade – ‘Only Say It Once’
I guess it’s not inconceivable that some people might dismiss Brisbane’s Little Vegas and The Fuzz Parade as part of the cesspool of noughties retro rockers. Based on their name alone, I certainly used to.
Hokey name aside, their music is set apart from the fecal matter floating around in said cesspool by the vocal delivery of front woman Sabrina Lawrie. Equal parts Suzi Quatro, PJ Harvey and Janis Joplin, Lawrie’s slightly husky alto will keep you interested if the riffage behind her doesn’t.
This is no-bullshit garage rock that is sexy, a little scary and fun.
