The Panics

Last Friday night Highlighter braved the cold to go and review my favourite Perth expats The Panics for FasterLouder. The Bakery was playing host and as it was filthy weather you knew it was gonna be a packed house inside. They played a really, really good show besides a few minor letdowns that you can read on the review if you like. I recently purchased their new LP Cruel Guards which came with a bonus CD of covers. There are a couple of Bob Dylan's, a Rolling Stones' and Leonard Cohen, but the standout would have to be their Happy Monday's cover of Lazyitis which is simply brilliant. I have also posted the title track from the album which is a standout for the album even if it is a little mellow. And lastly a fan favourite from their last album Sleeps Like A Curse. Go and get the new album its fantastic, and in fact go and grab their other 2 LP's while your there, you won't be disappointed
