Pissinboy - Gentleman of Leisure
Vinyl LP


Gentleman of Leisure


Released: 17th June 2016 | 10 track pop album

London-based trio Pissinboy is one of those unclassificable bands that don't fit in any box and only feed from imagination and the joy of playing – their 2nd LP Gentleman of Leisure proves it yet another time.

It's not 60's Garage, not Post-Punk, not Psych-Pop, what is it then? Singer-guitarist Andrea Pirovano's strong melodies and impeccable lyrics are the band's main weapons and drive the music. But with Gentleman…, the three boys take it one step further with more inventive arrangements and a rawer sound than in their previous LP Emily. The diversity of moods in the songs also differenciates Pissinboy from most power-trios: one may recognize the danceable beat of Congolese Soukous in the title song Gentleman Of Leisure (no wonder all 3 bandmembers also play in l'Orchestre du Montplaisant); the fuzzy Bontempi organ on Slums could be a subtle tribute to legendary producer Joe Meek; and in Bert is Dead, it's an obvious take on the Beach Boys' classic Pet Sounds.

Songs about East London's day-to-day life, existential matters, or simply love and dispair, make Gentleman… a journey through life's beauty and ugliness. A perfect long-player for your afternoon tea - or to accompany your evening's first pint.

"There is something really charming about Pissinboy’s music, which owes as much to the lo-fi naivety of Daniel Johnston as it does to 60’s Garage bands."
Sophie Jacobs, Spoonfed
"Pissinboy is not a cynical operation, it performs songs with lyrics that describe what it has seen, and sounds that thrill, surprise and make you dance!"
Tim Burrows, The Guardian
"Always a pleasure to be able to enjoy such carefree pop songs, great for driving; and simply stunning live."
Gereon Helmer, Ox Magazine
