Emperor Penguin – Tuesdays’ World

New Music -

‘A panoply of styles encompassing Supergrass, The Cure, and XTC, incorporating mad pop science and hyperactive guitars, that starts out rocky and gets progressively sweeter as it proceeds… Inventive melodic flow and super dynamics. Who can resist a band called Emperor Penguin?’

Mike Baron @ PopGeekHeaven

In the beginning, many years ago, the original Penguins – Neil Christie (vocals, guitar), Nigel Winfield (vocals, guitar), Adrian Long (vocals, bass) and Richard Wilson (drums) – set out to make a noise. Inspired by the likes of XTC, The Beatles, Buzzcocks and, er, The Wombles, they played gigs in and around London in the early ‘90s and recorded their debut album at BBC Maida Vale Studios. That album – Crumhorn – remained unreleased until very recently.

Life intervened and the band went into hibernation until 2017, when the re-formed (but not reformed) Emperor Penguin released a new album – Rum Pop Engineer – on CD via Kool Kat Musik and on vinyl via their own Savage Frenzy Records. The addition of the new member bass / guitar player / singer ‘JT’, replacing Rocking Adrian, engineered fresh energy into this rum pop.

For the LP ‘Walnut Fascia’ (2018) released on Kool Kat / Savage Frenzy, the Penguin aesthetic once again evolved. There was the same love of classic power pop and the occasional foray into rough and ready garage rock – but with a broader sonic palette.
Fourth album ‘Soak up the Gravy’ (2020) was release in January of this year to widespread acclaim.

The EP comprises four guitar-driven tracks dealing with everything from alien abduction to soft drink consumption in swinging London. It’s available to download and stream at EmperorPenguin.Bandcamp.com and from all the usual outlets. Lead track ‘Tuesday’s World’ features star guest Lisa Mychols ‘The Queen of Power Pop’ on vocals.
