Sweet Jesus, where this came from, God only knows. A three-minute lesson in frantic power chords, deranged shouting, pounding four-to-the-floor beats and hammer horror organ grinding, 'Boa vs. Python' is a bit of a mess, but a fantastically shambolic one.
B-side / second track on here, the brilliantly titled 'Dancing on Pegs' is more of the same upbeat party anthemics. If your party was attended by a drunk Iggy Pop and had copious amounts of class A drugs involved. It's slightly sinister, but crazily infectious nonetheless.
In the world of nu-new wave bands aping the past, we have something (finally) that isn't afraid to move past the two-dimensional angular guitar template that so many groups have opted for.
This is crazy, no doubt about it, but still fucking good.
