The Truth: PEEPING DREXELS are five reprobates who define themselves as "South London scum with sloppy beats and sleazy melodies". They consist of Dylan Coates (vocals), Joe Love (guitar / vocals), Jacob Bagshaw (guitar), Finton Hurst (bass) and Otis Hurst (drums), and 'Toast Of London' fankids were no doubt delighted to hear that the quintet's rampantly ramshackle single, which came out in September, was a paean to the painful turtlenecks of one 'Ray Purchase'.

You can see the specially de-mixed extended ‘Ray Purchase’ video here: https://www.clashmusic.com/videos/peeping-drexels-share-the-de-mix-video-version-of-ray-purchase

Rather happily, 'Ray Purchase' became a Steve Lamacq Livener on BBC 6music, who also played follow up radio track ‘Life Of Milo’, which sees P-Drex reveal their inner T-Rex with its grumpy glam rock sneerings. Both tunes appear on Peeping Drexels' debut EP, the specifically-typed 'PEEPING DREXELS.' which appeared on November 30th and contains four tracks of fearsomely ambitious underground rock action with post-punk undertones, drowsily sinister melodic loveliness and thunderously conceptual arthouse rock'n'roll madness, all wrapped up in 20 minutes and 23 seconds. The missing link between Idles and Shame? Could be...

We asked the Peeping Drexels kids for some words about the 'PEEPING DREXELS.' and they sent us these:

'Ray Purchase' – ”A twisted and obsessive ballad about a horrible man.”

'Life of Milo' – “A heartfelt dedication to someone who is no longer with us. RIP MILO.”

'I Like Transit Vans' – “The last moments shared between a gay anarchist couple, in the front seats of a transit van making its way to parliament.”

'The Hate' – “A tale of a single mother who finds love and hope in the form of a Neo-Nazi cult, only to be left for dead and without her now brainwashed children. “

“The making of this EP was an endless stream of arguments, misery, sweat, and fucking about on the roof."

Since causing a stir with 2017’s 'The Goof' as well as recent banger 'Bills Drift', Peeping Drexels have picked up national airplay, shared the stage with bands such as Fat White Family, Shame, Hotel Lux, Meatraffle, Phobophobes and LICE (to name but a few), and packed out their first ever European headline in Leffinge, Belgium.

Their notoriously chaotic live shows have left a trail of breathless destruction in Peeping Drexels' reckless wake, including memorable headlines at London’s Sebright Arms, Dalston Birthdays, Brixton Windmill and Brighton’s Green Door Store, with singer Dylan often performing masked for much of the set.

The 'PEEPING DREXELS.' EP is a joint venture release between the indie stalwart fierce panda and perky young Permanent Creeps organisation. Peeping Drexels also hereby become the fourth release as part of The Second Fierce Panda EP Club, whereby six ace new acts release six ace new EPs throughout 2018. Jekyll, National Service and Sad Boys Club are the other acts leaping into the EP abyss with the sweet support of Arts Council England.

CLASH Magazine "Peeping Drexels have soaked up that signature South London sound into the roots of their music, and then distorted it, adding elements of grunge to create their own atmosphere of gritty doom.”

The Metro "Entertainingly ramshackle, grungily lunging, decidedly dark hybrid of garage-punk, skiffle and DIY art-pop.”

So Young Magazine “For a band of discontented youths, Peeping Drexels wouldn’t be out of place sat next to more accomplished acts such as Iceage and Shame, ready-made for your road trip playlists or if you need a soundtrack to barge through the Tuesday commuters.”
