Charles Howl is a band, but it's also a man. And not a one man band, at that.
A primitive, primeval force scurrying around the nether regions of London's gig scene, their feral shows are an explosion of energetic, sweat and body hair.
Hooking up with Lo Editions, Charles Howl decided to press their debut single. Out now on chunky seven inch vinyl, 'Surf Trem' ain't no garage rock re-tread.
Sounding like the bodies of long since deceased 60s musicians literally rejuvenated and placed onstage, it's a track which can be measured in seconds, rather than minutes.
Stupid, dumb, goofy fun this should shake your record players down to the last sordid little screw.
