The Violets are some London pop punkers that create a decent old racket. Their 'The Lost Pages' album makes me think of a female fronted P.I.L at times. Especially the single 'Troubles of Keneat' with its big dub bassline. The rhythm section is pretty tight and the singer Alexis really belts it out in a Siouxie Sioux style. I think I'm repeating myself here from when I reviewd the single. I reckon these are a decent band and way cooler than the fashion victim bands emerging from the capital every week. The tracks just won't keep still, they itch, scratch and jerk all over the place. Gosh that last sentence makes them sound like a pervert with scabies. Which they don't. They've got tons of energy and bring a relativley fresh approch to the genre
