Sidewalk Society

Bowie meets The Action
Sidewalk Society

California's Sidewalk Society return after far too long away from FdM with a four-track EP that combines covers of songs by The Action and 60s era-Bowie; Sidewalk Society are a US band that really gets the sixties UK sound, I've loved them since i heard their version of 'Song Of A Baker' back in 2008.
