The Penny Black Remedy, 95 Charing Cross Road… Unforgetable. But somehow I lost track of them some time ago. I used to have one of their songs, 95 Charing Cross Road, on a CD. I had stumbled upon this song and the band really got me with that one. However, I have to admit that I had forgotten the name of the band over the years. and lost the CD for some reason. But now, I finally succeeded to find the song and the band again, oh what a joy!
The Penny Black Remedy have a really unique and genuine sound to them.They are from London and their music sounds a bit like a mixture of ska, rock’n’roll, balkan, polka, folk + some Spanish (?) vocals and a big X.
Here is a live video to the song 95 Charing Cross Road. Probably still my favourite since it brings memories to mind. But yes, just make sure to check them out. I for one can’t wait to see them live in concert some time soon.
