Wanted to get into Fucked Up cos they look like such a smashing bunch of folks. I tried 'Hidden World' and thought someone was vomiting nails into my brains. I did have a hangover though. So I'm back with 'The Chemistry of Common Life'. This is MUCH more like it. There's a turbocharged psychedelic squall ricocheting through some seriously adrenalised fuzzy hardcore punk and a screaming man who sounds a little narked about summat. I think the appeal of this band is that they're uniting all these dissaffected kids into, not only hardcore, but hard rock, stoner/psych stuff and noisy indie rock. There's a chugging abandon to these songs, a forcefulness but a spiritual unity & freedom. They're really stretching the boundaries and no doubt pissing the purists right off but heck! This is adventurous rock for a new generation and now I get it, I really, really like it. There's some great riffs and colliding, spiky chords cascading all over the shop, a kind of compressed ball of dynamic energy lurching out of the speakers, the tonsil shredding, guttural roar and the flailing drums are hugely exciting. Like the production loads too, not too polished and conceptual like the last album, just dirty, imaginative future rock for all ages to enjoy. So glad I've clicked with them after the initial bout of utter perplexion. I'm impressed!
