Biography

Fat analogue synth sounds, bravura and posturing, pastiche and parody - musical and textual - and a heavy dollop of gloopy mid-seventies pop-rock are the hallmarks of the Denim sound.

Denim were the brainchild of Lawrence Hayward, the man behind Felt. But Denim are antithesis to Felt’s fey, sensibility-heavy thesis.
Fans of Lawrence Felt/Denim should check out Go-Kart Mozart .

All of which is perfectly true; but there is also an American band of the same name, who are very different; and about whom I know nothing.

    Denim is basically a continuation of Felt's Me & The Monkey On The Moon which is good thing.

    Yep, it's sick. Denim is probably the only interesting thing that came out during 90's. I think all the records are equally funny, though my favourite must be 'Back in Denim' just because it's so cocky and rough.

    BEST BAND OF THE 90s

    I think there's a similarity between Lawrence and Jonathan Richman- two outsiders looking back with skewed nostalgia for the time they grew up in the 70s and the 50s. Soon I will write an album about the 90s and become the next link in the chain.

    The first album is pretty great. I would wager to say it's even better than Denim On Ice, though it doesn't reach for quite as many styles. Really it's essential to get both, but the rarities comp (Novelty Rock) is really only for diehards. Also, track down a download of the unreleased Summer Smash single if you can...
