Sego

Here’s five tracks as chosen by Spencer Peterson, lead singer of American art punk band Sego, ahead of the release of their debut album Sego Sucks on April 5.
Pinguin Mofex – Gutterquarter
I saw this band open their set playing a song with three words that erupted into a mosh/dance pit when the lead singer appeared in a Medusa/Pharaoh costume in the crowd. At the end of the song he was screaming “You knew what I was when you picked me up!” into all of our faces and promptly exited out the front door and got into a car and drove away. Then they played their next song…

Ty Segall – Every 1’s a Winner
One of the best live shows I’ve ever seen in my life. Commitment. No apologies. It’s rare when I feel like I could handle much more than 45 minutes from even my favourite bands. Having never seen them nor recognising any of the songs (they only play new material), I could’ve watched the set on repeat. They gave no encore.

Shame – Concrete
We played a show with these strapping young fellas in 2016 in Brighton, England right when they were getting going. They played right after us, so I was wrapping cables near the front right side of the stage while they were loading on. They launched into their first song and I noticed that the guy watching next to me in a three piece suit was holding his head and abruptly turned to the girl next to him, planted a big kiss, and crawled onto the stage and started singing. Jaw-dropping set. It’s been good to see those boys subsequently put out a great record and take over the world.

Parquet Courts – Wide Awake
I’ve always felt a kinship with these dudes no matter what direction they decide to take. Never seen them live, but I already know it’d be rad.

Kings of Leon – Trani
Let’s not forget, before “Sex On Fire”, this was one of the most legit rock n roll bands in the world. Listen to the very end or you’re blowing it.
