Electricity in Our Homes are another 4AD residing bunch of hopefuls. I've gleaned fuck all from the press release apart from the fact there's 2 songs on this out-of-the-blue 7" and the 1st fast track caled 'Gymnastics' is utterly fabulous. Relentless drums, bashed almost in a giddy hardcore D-beat, a barking spasmic bass line & a vicious scratchy guitar that recalls prime Big Flame. Then the agit-pop chanty vocals yelled over the top which makes the increasingly astute Phil holler "Young Knives" at me, a band who quite possibly ripped off Big Flame in the first place. Yes this band ARE on 4AD, yes, this single makes me feel like throwing myself at bouncy castle walls and yes you should buy it, especially for the post-Jandek style sleeve. 'Motorbike' is another frantic romp, this time of the slow-fast-slow variety, half Mclusky, half Dawson (anyone remember THEM?), a paean to a small cubic capacity Japanese motorcycle and it's modest abilities. I like the spoken word female vocal that appears half way through, detached in an almost MBICR/Prolapse style, before the whole thing erupts in another buzzsaw spray of pure mid-80's inspired off-kilterdom. This is spazzcore, 2009 style. The plucky Sarandon finally have some kindred spirits!
