Pure Decadence, "The Sugar" (Unreleased)

pure decadenceBanner night for the East End this Sunday. Birthday for Patrick of Pure Country Gold, belated bachelor party for Fireballs Of Freedom's Kelly "Gator" Gately and a welcome home benefit for David "Roach" Simmons of Fireballs, Starantula, Divining Rods, Thee Headliners, the Weaklings, Add-X and...pretty much every band 'round town deserving keyboard wizardry and inimitable presence.

Simmons decamped to Raleigh last winter for solo work and a yet-untitled project with D-Generation's Richard Bacchus, so this'll likely be the last chance for a while to catch funk garage all-stars Pure Decadence. Along with Poison Idea guitarist Jim Taylor and drummer-about-town Paul Vega, Simmons pounded his organ towards that sweet strut 'tween rawk and r&b. Pure Decadence never quite released an album, but here's a track from years past—raucous, elemental, and all too sweet.


Pure Decadence plays with Pure Country Gold and Thee Headliners Sunday, April 20th at East End.
