Trash Kit of the so-called 'London DIY Scene' have been active since 2008. This, their self-titled debut came two years later, and sees the trio play a minimal and discordant post-punk that brings to mind bands like the Slits and Minutemen. Across its 28 minutes they whip through ideas at a 100 miles per hour, and sound like they're having a blast doing so.

Trash Kit are a relatively new all-girl trio from London town. With only a years experience behind them (formed in 2009) they have managed to capture there wildly rhythmic Slits/Raincoats-esque style on record and with seventeen tunes included here it's obvious to me that they are a busy bunch indeed. As with all great three piece groups Trash kit rely on sparse interplay between instruments and vocals to create optimum results. Drums and cheeky guitar rhythms provide the solidity, the bass holds things together melodically and a playful duel vocal attack completes the sound nicely. All avenues of post punk are explored here with hints of Erase Eratta, The Raincoats, The Slits, Contortions and newer groups such Beards, Electricity in our Homes and The Jelas all making their presence known but this ain't no throwback release, these kids have got a ton of great sounding tunes here. Thoughtful lyrical content with danceable beats...a killer combo. Totally recommended listening. It's on Upset The Rhythm so you already know it's good.
