Drawing from a difficult period of heroin addiction, Spike creates beautifully infectious, Triffids-tinged rock and roll songs which describe, with unflinching candour and white hot urgency, the peaks and valleys of that lifestyle, recalling at times the febrile music scene of 80’s New York, and cult heroes like Jim Carroll and Johnny Thunders.
Spike acknowledges that history and incorporates it with elements of the sharply contemporary, colliding the elegance of meta-modernism with the unvarnished grit of the past. Over 4 tracks on her (soon to be rereleased) “Smackwave” EP, Spike knits together sense memory, historical and cultural artefact, and autobiographical documentation in an attempt to record a challenging – and thankfully now closed – chapter of her life.
