The Preatures

To compare Sydney newcomers The Preatures to any musical acts would be unfair. Not that they don’t have their influences (Think <a href="http://www.last.fm/music/Patti+Smith" class="bbcode_artist">Patti Smith</a> and <a href="http://www.last.fm/music/Wolfman+Jack" class="bbcode_artist">Wolfman Jack</a> with a dash of <a href="http://www.last.fm/music/Fleetwood+Mac" class="bbcode_artist">Fleetwood Mac</a>) but their live show is more reminiscent of a religious cult. From the howling voodoo high priest Gideon Bensen to the Magdeline-esque passion of Isabella Manfredi, the voices in this band stir up a religious fervor that makes you want to drink the kool aid and wait for the spaceship.
