The band formerly known as Charlie Boyer & The Voyeurs are now just The Voyeurs. Alongside this shortened name comes widened perspective. The band’s second album takes in the rail networks of Eastern Europe and a transvestite bar in Limehouse in East London. Rhythmic inspiration comes from both The Glitter Band and the Berlin-fermented pulse of Iggy Pop’s The Idiot album. Such broadening horizons were maybe foreshadowed by the band’s personal history – a ‘London group’ whose origins take in Palestine and the Forest of Dean.

The Voyeurs are based in London, but drummer Samir Eskanda was born in the Middle East. Frontman Charlie Boyer’s childhood was spent in the Forest of Dean, where he went to the same school once attended by the sainted hit-maker and recording-studio revolutionary Joe Meek. Charlie says that Meek was ‘a bit of celebrity for all the little freaks at school – we’d often listen to Telstar at the right time of an evening…’ Wow! Can pop-music hot-housing get any better? Certainly Meek’s spirit of adventure is audible in the opening track on the The Voyeurs’ new album, ‘Rhubarb Rhubarb’. ‘Train To Minsk’ is the track that draws on the idiot-savant wunder-chug of The Glitter Band and Iggy Pop. The lyrics range from Belarus to Japan.
