When Iggy Pop cites you amongst his favourite new bands on the back of your first single, you might start to feel the heat a little. But for East London upstarts False Heads, receiving the official nod from alternative musics most enduring tastemaker is just the start. 

Spawned from the ashes of shit bands and a plethora of line-up changes, False Heads were cemented when old school friends Luke Griffiths (vocals/guitar), Jake Elliott (bass) and Barney Nash (drums) came back together in mid 2015.Describing their sound as crack rock punk, their insanely catchy lo-fi riffs alongside Griffiths biting lyrics soon reached the ears of Libertine Gary Powell who didn't hesitate to sign them to his own label. 

First single Steal and Cheat was released on 25 Hour Convenience Store in December of that year, to an audience ready to receive. Acclaim from the likes of NME, Drowned in Sound, Clash, The Independent and Q Magazine as well as radio support from the likes of The Independent, BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Kerrang! and Radio X saw the music industry sit up and listen. 

Backed with a series of energetic and unflinching live shows, the band caught the attention of punk rock cornerstone Danny Fields (The Ramones, Iggy Pop, The Stooges) who proclaimedhe was 'almost giving up, but now hope for the future of rock and roll is renewed – for me that's a very big deal'.

Think Frank Black impersonating Ian Dury after stealing Elliott Smith's notebook; Add in a backdrop of Kurt jamming with The Buzzcocks and you're just starting to get the picture of what the newest pretenders to the post-millennial punk rock throne have in store.
