- New Thoughts by Thread Pulls
Here we have a two-piece rock band stripped way, way back to the bass and drums with which they produce a very distinctive sound! That sound somehow seems to be very full, especially when other components are brought in, electronic squeaks & the odd thrash of a guitar. The initial comparison on the opening 'How to Talk' is of Liars mangled up with Cabaret Voltaire but its the second track where they really hit their stride, a fantastic Can/Silver Apples influenced rhythm driving it along - suddenly the drums burst out of the mix to superb effect while the vocals chant along, there's even the hint of a nearly catchy chorus. This is brilliant music, absolutely brilliant. Thread Pulls are the perfect soundtrack to driving around broken down industrial areas of Northern cities late at night, they recall some of the greatest bands to walk this sodden earth, apart from the afore-mentioned Liars and Cabaret Voltaire, This Heat, PIL, Throbbing Gristle, Joy Division, ESG, DAF all spring to mind at various points. For a contemporary reference there's also strong parallels with Factory Floor & to a lesser extent (an unpretentious) These New Puritans! Rhythmic, minimal compositions with a hint of darkness and fear underfoot, this ticks all the right boxes for me AND its recorded in Dublin for great sound quality. Joke courtesy of Dave. Always leave them with a joke, funny or otherwise.
i have just discovered this and its an awesome record. i have been playing it over and over. sounds like Liars meets these new puritans via PIL.
