By Vicious Cabaret
Good to see Leeds' answer to the Mary Chain still going strong. Now down to a trio, the reduction in personnel luckily hasn't blunted Vicious Cabaret's razor-sharp sound. Slightly more measured than their "Twilight Of The Idols" debut, it still combines the group's trademark barbed lyrics with the sort of snarled-up mutant garage rock sound which resembles the Strokes being chopped to pieces by an industrial wood chipper. And let's face it, there's few more satisfying sounds than that. Recommended.
