Die Straßen sind kalt und nass an diesem Sonntagabend im Oktober. Alle Berliner im geschlechtsreifen Alter sind entweder auf Partnersuche in den Clubs oder liegen bereits mit dem auserkorenen Wintergefährten und Sushi vom Lieferdienst vor dem Fernseher, wenn nicht schon unter der warmen Bettdecke. Man stimmt sich auf den gemeinsamen Winter(bei)schlaf ein.
The debut record from Pickers gets going with a ripping start. It’s high energy rock with a rockabilly twist. Rockabilly is a much misunderstood brand of rock’n’roll, and when done well can add a whole lot of energy to otherwise predictable garage rock. Pickers blend it in well.

Cam Butler decided he wanted to write an orchestra piece.
