Gold Light Of Man Ray

I remembered this band the other day, who very handily tie into the recent Man Ray theme. The Rayographs, three young ladies from London, who play slinky, ever-so-slightly menacing blues and named themselves after the Man himself and his photography.

Man Ray Style

The Rayographs are an all girl three-piece from London who I heard on Weatherall’s recent 6 Mix excursion. While in town last weekend, negotiating record shops with I.T. in his wheelchair (not always easy) I found a 7″ from two years ago in Piccadilly Records. They have a spooky, psychedelic/bluesy sound. There’s several of their songs you should look out for- Francis, Space Of The Halls, Yellow Hair, all of which shimmer with a drop of the dark stuff. This is from their debut single.
