“Slop-pop. Like a lazy, half-arsed version of someone like The Vaccines or Howler” is what Joe Allan, a surf-pop singer/songwriter from Newcastle Upon Tyne calls himself. ”I’ve got some great ideas, all I need now is some money and some fellow music people to help me do them justice and put them into practice.”
Joe Allan makes fuzzy beach-pop pieces of noise, telling tales of life as an underachiever, a youngster and a hopeless romantic. With plans for an early 2013 EP release, as well as a string of UK dates, as long as he manages to conjure up the money to properly record his songs(!), Joe Allan is ‘one to watch’ for next year.
‘COOL’, the home-recorded first demo from teenager Joe Allan is available to download for free on his Soundcloud page.
