The Daily Choice: Fergus & Geronimo – Roman Tick
I’ve never quite been able to pinpoint Fergus & Geronimo. Upon first listen, I saw them as healthy additions to the world of garage, fuzzed out guitar bros from Texas. Unlearn though was some other beast altogether, the fuzz turned on it’s head, a new, amalgamated blend of rock and pop and doo-wop, that took me completely by surprise. And let the surprises keep coming. This newest track veers sharply away from the sweet tunes of the last album, coming out of the gate with a guttural snarl pasted to it’s lips. Gone are the intricacies, at least on “Roman Tick”, replaced with high energy, and a thin crust of gutter sneer.
