By The Martini Henry Rifles
From the onset I thought I was gonna hate this with a passion, another band from the arrogantly titled "Future of Rock and Roll " Sonic Mook Experiment toss comp. Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster anyone? Yawn... but anyway after my initial (and completely justified) cynicism I found myself really quite liking this. It doesn't sound like it should; it should sound like, like The Hives or some other pants. What we do have here is two songs of dark brooding DC Hardcore inspired angular anti pop. Complete with industrial stompings and ultra distorted guitar sound, rhythmic almost tribal, drumbeat and some really great vocals. Smashing. Haven't a clue what they're ranting about and with song titles like "Run Jimmy run run run you fucker" neither will you.
