Review by Bobby Green
If you like the sensation of a punk rock jackhammer whacking you straight in the face then the new single ‘Political People’ by TOUTS will make your dingles dangle. TOUTS are a three piece punk band from Derry, Ireland. A singer that can’t sing, a mod that can’t play bass and a drummer that can’t see. They have just released their debut EP Sickening and Deplorable, which contains their next single “Political People”, through Hometown Records. Their delivery is on point and they sound like the band Babyshambles always wanted to be but were never good enough to achieve, there is no false hype about TOUTS.
TOUTS say of the single. “Political People” is a two minute sub culture anthem looking at how politics, the parties and the manifestos are so far removed from today’s youth.’
These teenage upstarts will be playing to ever greater audiences with Paul Weller having them as support on both Irish dates of his tour next year and a support slot for Kasabian in August in Belfast. If the video for ‘Political People’ is anything to go by both Weller and Kasabian need to bring their ‘A game’ otherwise they’ll be in serious trouble of being blown off the f**king stage…
