The Crookes, Hey Sholay, Black Market Empire
The Crookes are set to release their second L.P on legendary indie label Fierce Panda this summer after spending the previous year touring relentlessly around the UK and Europe promoting their debut album Chasing After Ghosts.
The Crookes have always subscribed to a truly indie ideal of being in a band, and their 8th full length tour saw their gig count for the year pushed to over 200 shows. The entire second album was written on tour in Europe in their van during a heat wave listening exclusively to Motown and Stiff Records, giving the songs unmistakable sound of summer and youth.
Although the backdrop for these songs may have changed from Northern England to the Continent, they still retain the unmistakable poetry and Romance which The Crookes have become known for. It is an album of intelligent pop music.
