While Dan, Ben and Danny were moving and grooving with electro jazz funk trio The Fantastic Car, John was playing rhythm guitar with Rolf & Cindy and Brilliantine, along with former members of The Golden Virgins. That was then. Now they’ve amalgamated; and I know what you’re thinking: three of them were in an electro jazz funk outfit; do Calf not just sound like an electro jazz funk band? Thankfully, no. (Because no three words strike terror into a music lover’s heart than “electro”, “jazz” and “funk” in too close proximity, right?) Calf have a rough around the edges indie-grunge sound, which they’ve married to a very agreeable pop sensibility, as evidenced on their fabulous new track Nineteen Ninety Fear which has all the scuzzy charm of The Strokes – at their whip-smart best - having a mini-break with Dinosaur Jr. And boy do they know how to play! This is super accomplished stuff and BBC 6Music should be all over it. So so should you.
