8/10 Brett Staff review, 13 August 2008
Warning! Heat Ray! have floated in on a raft traversing the rivers of blood with a tune dealing with immigration and all that business. On the 50th anniversary of the Notting Hill riots, 'Spit it Out' comes at almost the pace of a ballad with a sparse electronic backing that reminds Phil of Locust (not the ones in funny costumes) and me of some Scritti Politti stuff, it's peppered with quotes from colossal bell-ends talking about 'those coloureds' and their intentions coming to 'our' country. The quotes are clearly from the time when the first wave of immigrants started appearing but in all honesty they could just as easily come from any time in the last fifty years, it's sad but true. The artwork comes from Anjan Sarkar who apparently did the graphic novel for Dead Man's Shoes, it's a cool pencil drawing of a battered Union Jack being waved.. Presumably this is symbolic of England's shit football team or something, I dunno. It feels like something's going over my head. Cool little package all round I'd say! It's a rarity to see someone being brave enough to put music out with a political message in this day and age where everything is as fucked as its ever been so props to these guys for doing the thing, apparently they're making a loss by putting this little fella out so give 'em a hand by getting a copy and softening the financial blow!
