Song(s) of the Day # 1,211 Tangerines

Two songs from the diverting album from Peckham based band Tangerines Into the Flophouse, which came out last Friday on RIP Records. It's unreconstructed old style Rock and Roll. The Faces, Lou Reed, (There's a song on there, called appropriately Uptight, which is pure Loaded sensibility), Mink DeVille and the Heartbreakers. The band chart what living in London is like when you're young in 2017; unscrupulous landlords, rampant gentrification, trying to make a life within the spaces. It's a spirited, loose and louche record.
