LO GIRLS, RICH RAGS Royal Standard, Walthamstow

Rich Rags were well into their alloted segment when I wafted in
I thought they were suckin’ on a biggie at a first glimpse, with their tired ‘n’ tested bargain-bin-rockstar-with-a-safe-hint-of-Glam image. But they miraculously nailed my initial reaction an’ sucked me into their groove with minor gems like ‘Money Don’t Talk’ and in particular ‘On The Tiles’ – a cannily crafted toon with more hooks than a cloakroom.

Rich Rags don’t get the total Zell stamp of approval, but if you strain yer baby-blues the ink has made an impression.
