Peeping Drexels

Musicians — London

Name, where are you from?
Peeping Drexels aka The Sneak Mob, Born and bred in the heart of South East London.

Describe your style in three words?
Crack head swag.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Twin Peaks at The Engine Rooms in Bow, back in 2014 or something. That was mad. Do we have to nominate a track of theirs? We don't really like them anymore, but that gig was like a fucking house party, never been to something like that. 'Natural Villain' is still a banger.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
GG Allin and King Tubby. The mix of filth and chill would be unbelievable and 'Bite It, You Scum' by GG would blow the roof off before everyone sparks up for Tubbys 'Move Out of Babylon Dub'.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
The Crunk movement.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
A quick mashup with Hunter S. Thompson is the stuff of dreams.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
Undoubtedly The Windmill Brixton, where else?

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
D Double E. The man pioneered grime and has never got the credit he deserves. 'Thuggish Ruggish' and the whole of the 'On Tha Double' mixtape is essential listening.


Peeping Drexels hail from South London, drawing comparisons to the like of The Fall and Fat White Family among other exponents of London's current post-punk movement.

The first track you played on repeat?
'Video Killed The Radio Star' by The Buggles has been on repeat in my gaff so much in the past 20 years that it now sounds like white noise. Not out of choice, the cd player is broke.

A song that defines the teenage you?
'Look What The Cat Dragged In' by Giggs.

One record you would keep forever?
'Trap House' by Gucci Mane. Nothing beats it.

A song lyric that has inspired you?
"Let's have a threesome, you, me and a Blunt."

In Kanye's 'All Mine' touched me in places that I didn't know existed.

The song that would get you straight on the dance floor?
'Like A Prayer' by Madonna will always get my feet moving and my brow sweating.

A song you wished you had written?
The whole of The Beach Boys album 'Holland'.

Best song to turn up loud?
'The Bells' by Jeff Mills. Or 'Preacher Man' by Green Velvet. Or anything by Levon Vincent. Basically just dirty techno.

A song people wouldn’t expect you to like?
'Power Of Love' by Huey Lewis and The News.

Best song to end an all-nighter on?
'911' by Tyler The Creator ends every all-nighter we have on a high note. Anything Tyler does is gold, man's a genius.

Any new bands you are listening to right now?
The one and only Skrot Centralen are doing something no one else is, 'Guggenheim' may be the only track I've heard recently to give me stomach ulcers. Our South brothers Uncle Tesco are f*cking great, Their track 'Croydon Underpass' has the vibes. Of course, Honkies, who we did our split single with, are always smashing it.
