• Fabulous Diamonds

Fabulous Diamonds, aka drummer and singer Nisa Venerosa and organist and singer Jarrod Zlatic, are among the current generation of bands proving the old proposition that you don’t need chops to make compelling music. The Australian duo’s brand of idiot-savant punk, which suggests a lobotomized Suicide, is built from throbbing, rudimentary beats—people who can’t play drums tend to go the tom-heavy faux-tribal route, as Venerosa does—and roiling two-note keyboard patterns.
