Harpurhey' Stories with The Bucket Hats - An Interview

Se eu pudesse voltar no tempo, e escolher uma banda para tocar na minha formatura seja do colégio ou da faculdade, certamente seriam o trio de freaks espanhóis The Bucket Hats.

Surf música de garagem feita especialmente para bailinhos regados a muita bebida, e outras coisinhas mais. Pura diversão se é que você me entende.

Agora, escute o debute deles "Harpurhey´s Stories" e tente não imaginar sua formatura, todo mundo chapado, aquele clima de baile freak e os caras que curtem beber, chapar, tocar e usam aqueles chapéus em forma de balde, ou se você preferir, o chapéu estilo Reni dos Stone Roses.

Imaginou? Então vamos pra festa porra.
