Stranger Son of WB (nattily abbreviated to SSOWB) are apparently from Manchester, a city who's towering grey infernal shops & terminal drizzle forces folk to make occasionally excellent music. They've got this one sided 12" called 'Engine' which is quite brilliant. It's the culmination of years of listening to allsorts of things Factory related but ends up sounding like New Fast Automatic Daffodils on crystal meth. The cowbell embellished frantic off-beat drums starts things off nicely before this this hoofing Lancastrian bellow hots things up, stepping onto this relentless & propulsive level with a swirling, eerie keyboard stolen off a record by The Wake and a pinching manic bass line that'd kick your cock off it's so low slung. So it's a total floor filler, stuffed with energy & authentic punk funk attitude but sounds remarkably fresh rather than just a pastiche. watch out for these chaps I'd say.....Like the white ink stamped die cut, it's well designer.
