“Sounds like the Pixies playing £10 instruments, and the best tunes they ever wrote” - Rock Sound
Sometimes a band are simply too great that their collective noise, intensity and talent makes them implode and disband far too prematurely for their confused and salivating fans to deal with. Good job Mclusky disbanded to form two of the most exciting and energetic bands around: Future Of The Left and Shooting At Unarmed Men.
The latter is the brain child of Jon Chapple, known originally for his insane haemorrhage-inducing head-thrashing and bass riffs that were like thunder reverberating through your gut (in a good way). Now he propels sky high guitar riffs and screams and gasps out impassioned vocals for Shooting At Unarmed Men, a band so punk rock that their debut was recorded in only three days; their second offering was entitled ‘Yes, Tinnitus’ (say no more) and this – their third and greatest – was knocked up in Australia, where Jon currently resides after deciding it might be nice to sell all his worldly processions and move somewhere hot for a bit. ‘Triptych’ comes in three parts, a slight nod to their heroes Minutemen who once put out six EPs in six months. It’s the raw, unabashed joy of the short, sharp and hardcore blasts that document your inner and present rage rather than the drab over-polished, over-produced, over-thought-out and damn right over-dull.
