8/10 according to Brian (Norman Records staff) on Thu 22 Jan, 2009Gestammelorchester. Yeah, that's who. So screw you. Apparently "losers" from more Celtic pastures who now kick out a revved up, lo-fi indie punk din in Berlin that I rather freaking like lots. It's got a lot of Ligament in there, basically when at full throttle it sounds like the mixing desk is about to implode, such is the ferocity of shredded supermuff guitar & a bass that sounds like it's being thrummed by a giant's tooth. Plus lots of rabble rousing shouting that's quite inpenetrable but very hearty. The flip starts in a brooding math rock fashion before exploding into another mid 90's inspired post hardcore stop-starter with extra spazz bells on that makes the muscles in my neck jut out with memories of Cable, Elevate & the utterly amazing Fabric from London (anyone remember them?) Yes, this is how rock should sound, dirty, scuzzy & underproduced. Crank this mother up and pretend you're downstairs at the Royal Park Cellars in Leeds. 'Hesitate'/'Land' is 7" only on Slow Loris.

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
