Fergus & Geronimo, “No Parties”

Ari Spool

Cover art

Fergus & Geronimo always pump quirk into their tracks by the gallon, and with “No Parties” they are taking a pretty simple post-punk melody – catchy, at that – and singing the verses in a thick Cockney drawl. I haven't heard someone imitate a British accent in song since this one girl in choru class who loved horses and Ann of Green Gables used to try and alter her “soprano”. But if F&G didn't do it, this would just be a kind of normal song, albeit one with a fun little Devo-esque keyboard line. And we couldn't have that. That would be awful.
