IPSO FACTO were always labelled as the female Horrors. Like all lazy comparisons this was completely inaccurate. Sure they looked monochrome and gothy like the Horrors, and shared Southend origins of course, but the similarities end there. Compared to the chaotic untamed garage rock of The Horrors at the time (Strange House era), Ipso Facto were always a more refined and dramatic choice for discerning music fans.
Fronted by Rosie Cunningham, they created a moody and ethereal kind of psychadelic rock, but always with a concise, accurate beauty to it. They’ve all gone on to pursue other projects, but unique songs like this track, ‘Six and Three Quarters’ will always be around rattling around my head.
