Doug Fir Lounge

[U.K. GRUNGE] How's this for free publicity? Last July, when English Labour Party general election coordinator Tom Watson stepped down from his post, he punctuated his resignation letter with the following bit of advice to his fellow party members: "And if you want to see an awesome band, I recommend Drenge." Maybe the shout-out shouldn't seem so surprising. After all, Watson is 47, so he was in his late 20s during the grunge era, which puts him in the prime demographic to appreciate what these two young brothers are doing. Though Eoin and Rory Loveless grew up in North England, their guitar-and-drums attack is straight out of early ’90s Seattle, built on scuzzy riffs and a rugged sense of melody.
