The Thrill Of Thirty Seconds

By Skint & Demoralised

The first thing on receiving the single I notice is the use of an Alan Ball & Billy Bremner image. Great stuff! That's where the greatness kind of ends though. 'The Thrill Of Thirty Seconds' would maybe be better as a thirty second thrilling track. It all seems a bit dated. There isn't anything new here to get your teeth round. The singing in a broad accent thing hit its climax a while ago and Skint & Demoralised may be just that by turning up to the party a little late. The lyrics are fine, a bit random at times, there is obvious talent in the playing of the instruments but it's not anything special. It picks up a bit toward the end, but does go on a tad. A basic, average release. I wish them all the luck in the world, they might need it.

I have to say that I disagree with you. Whilst I described a previous offering as 'memorable if na´ve' (http://www.leedsmusicscene.net/article/9672), they seem to be rapidly honing their sound whilst maintaining an undeniable catchiness and charm. In my humble opinion, they might just be Wakefield's next big thing.
