I’ve always considered Fergus and Geronimo a bit underrated. This is one of a few projects Denton renaissance man Andrew Savage is involved in – the others being Teenage Cool Kids and Parquet Courts. Naturally, if you like his other two projects and aren’t too familiar with Fergus and Geronimo then I’m going to heartily recommend you check this out. Savage and Kelly bring their wit and palatial lyricism on these two songs, along with their tenor/baritone-flirting voices which are sui generis. What you’re going to find on this thing is garage rock, power pop and a bit of a 50s surfy throwback especially on “Turning Blue” with the wailing male chorus, maracas and fast-paced bright guitar work. This is actually their first release for Hardly Art.Β Check out “Never Satisfied” and “Turning Blue” below via the Soundcloud player and see what you think of them. Cheers!
2010, Hardly Art
VINYL FORMAT. Tracks: "Never Satisfied" b/w "Turning Blue." Never Satisfied is the new 7" by the Brooklyn, NY (by way of Denton, TX) weirdo-pop wonder duo. "Never Satisfied" is a catchy Beach Boys-esque pop tune with a post millennial skew, while b-side "Turning Blue" is a cover of an 80s novelty non-hit from a Pac Man picture-disc LP. No kidding. Initial pressing of 500 on opaque half-white, half blue vinyl. This is the first material from Fergus & Geronimo for Hardly Art, in advance of a full-length LP!
