If Adelaide isn’t the rock and roll capital of the world I am not quite sure where is. Those still active in guitar strummin’ over thereseem to keep churning out quality axe-ridden tracks, whilst the rest of the country decides whether guitars are still relevant. New grid city group Rex Wonderful & The Silk Sheets have displayed allegiance to their school yard crushes on Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, mum's love of the 80s and a sullen understanding that everything is in chaos on the first track ‘Mimosas’ their debut 6 track cassette Ego Death. RWTSS was brewed up by Wireheads frontman Dom Trimboli (the Wizards) and Wireheads videographer Alex Gordon-Smith in the midst of a mimosa coma, eventually coming to, finding themselves walking a velvet saunter with Liam Kenny (Nylex, Wireheads, Workhorse), Elena Nees (Allume, Maraby Band) and Dana Ashford (Gentleworms). Ego Death is out this Friday October 5th through Tenth Court. $5 pre-orders are available from our website until the release date. Check out the video for Mimosas below:
