Proto Idiot Vinyl, CD & tapes by Proto Idiot at Norman Records
Proto-Idiot hail from Manchester and share band mates with fellow Mancs The Hipshakes. Their debut album, Leisure Opportunity has the quintessential English songwriting of, say, Ray Davies but with a delivery that is way more urgent, sharp and erratic making it classic, but absolutely for right now.
Manchester’s Proto Idiot resurrect the proto-punk sound for 2016, cheerfully combining snarly lead vocals with 60’s pop-chorus vocal harmonies. For Dummies is garage rock probably recorded in an actual garage, and it jumps through 13 fun-time tracks in 35 minutes. Released by the Bad Paintings label.
