Assaulting your ears from the south east coast of England is The Jezebels, a new all-girl rock n roll trio. Decked out in leather jackets, these three “biker chicks,” fueled by garage, punk, and British R&B play their unique blend of fuzzed-up, raucous, pub-rock ’n’ roll on their debut single. Listening to the music without any knowledge of the band, you would think that the testosterone is freely flowing throughout both sides of the single. Laura Anderson (guitar and vocals), Letty Gallagher (bass), and Lois Tozer (drums) kick out the jams with healthy doses of advice about who to keep your daughters away from on both “Black Book” and “Cried over You.” “Black Book” is hard driving rock ’n’ roll with more than a nod to ZZ Top’s iconic “La Grange.” The flip side, “Cried over You” is pure garage punk. The Jezebels are building a fan base both in the UK and across the Channel. Hopefully they will not a be a one shot wonder.
