The C33s are back with a bang after their last single Manic Depression which was debuted on Louder Than War not long ago and showed promise with it’s Tarantino style full on rush of mayhem from the Northern trio. Big Winner keeps it coming to show they’re not a flash in the pan, and if you’ve not seen em live yet, well get your fuckin’ shoes on and hit the pavements…
Since July 2018’s introductory EP (’48 Hours at Neon Palms’) and their live debut in October (Jimmy’s, Manchester), The C33s music has had an astounding effect: They’ve played some landmark venues and events (including tour dates with CABBAGE, King Tuts). The band have also picked up a record deal with These Bloody Thieves Records and signed with world-renowned X-Ray Touring.
Their April debut single, ‘Manic Depression’, earned amazing reactions and wide radio play including BBC Radio 1 (Huw Stephens), BBC Radio 6 (Chris Hawkins), XS Manchester (Mike Joyce) and Amazing Radio (Jim Gellatly).
Not resting on their laurels this group are touring hard and get more incendiary with every live performance. Last time I saw them about the crowd were going bonkers and when they aired this song, it just blew up. Big Winner follows on from the excellent Manic Depression back in April and just hits you from the start. Produced by Gavin Monaghan at Magic Garden Studios it’s got the spirit of Lemmy running straight through it with that riff from Cav Green, and the backing vocals from Judy Jones are barking mad to up the sound, along with that fuck off bass from Ste Phillips. A cracking rumble that shows you there are bands around that have been taking note of the last wave of Northern bands that have lit up the scene. Fuck you average indie shit here, this is straight up dirty rock n roll taking slices of that sleazy garage sound from the likes of the early grunge scene recorded in dank cellars back in Seattle before the scene exploded. A breath of fresh air, punk as fuck. The shit’s hitting the fan…
