The Baron Four - Yes I Do


Debut offering The Baron Four. Featuring ex-members of Thee Vicars and MFC Chicken. Limited edition 7” single from State Records.

Fast rising boutique garage label State Records are certainly not resting on their laurels. Following the well-received records by by the likes of Suzi Chunk, The Higher State, Paul Messis and more, the label are set to release a series of quickly recorded 7” singles, all recorded at their bespoke recording studio. Part One of the “Sandgate Sound Acetate” series is the debut 7” from The Baron Four. The band features ex-members of MFC Chicken and Thee Vicars, (who split last year following the tragic passing of guitarist Chris Langeland). Their sound somewhere between Star-Club era Beatles, The Milkshakes and The Kingsmen. It's a pleasing mix of fuzz and groove. Early Brit-rock meets US garage punk with a smidgeon of surf thrown in for good measure. A side “Yes I Do” is an uptempo rocker complete with screams and searing guitar solo. B-side “Girl” slows things down slightly, more groove based though no less engaging. Captured in gloriously punchy mono, and pressed on heavyweight vinyl, the single is limited to 500 copies so don't hang about!
