Anaemia

By The Zico Chain

Ever remember that band Violent Delight? You remember, the cheeky chappies that had a minor hit with that song about wanting to be a girl. Well VD (get it? Lolz!) achieved a little bit of success, played some top festivals, had their debut produced by Steve Jones (of Sex Pistols fame) and then promptly disappeared off the face of the earth. The point to all this is that they too were given a "Brit- rock Saviour" tag, just like The Zico Chain. Another similarity that they share is that they're both utterly shite. In the same way that VD's signature tune sounded a little like The Bloodhound Gang's "I Hope You Die", "Anaemia" sounds like a baby Velvet Revolver (all the worst bits) with some frankly awful and unnecessary screaming at the end. This is the worst case of a band being completely unworthy of the hype. Don't give up the day job boys. Oh you have? See you in the dole queue in a year or so, then.
